Trail run 1:10:26 [3] 7.81 km (9:01 / km) +460m 6:58 / km
shoes: Salomon Fellraiser 2017 (blue)

Explore of the wooded trails in the mountains of the National Park above Kotor. Much cooler and the 1600m odd altitude wasn't a problem after last week. Nice easy pace down hill for the first bit and then a long steady climb back up. What wasn't nice was a fall on a stony track in which I wacked my left knee. Sore. Had been hoping to find a few caves but the paths weren't clearly marked so missed them. Did find an amazing trail as well engineered as a railway and lined with cut stones. Very enjoyable.

walk 37:17 [1] 3.06 km (12:10 / km) +400m 7:22 / km

Had planned an evening run in Kotor but the border into Montenegro took four hours so it was dark by the time we got to the accommodation. Instead can only count the walk up the hill overlooking Dubrovnik in the morning. Plenty hot, even first thing and the hill was a decent hight.

Road run 31:20 [2] 4.88 km (6:25 / km) +117m 5:44 / km
shoes: Salomon Fellraiser 2017 (blue)

Hoping for a trail run but ran out of time as it got dark much earlier than I was expecting (from the hostel which was nowhere near Dubrovnik but still cost 31 Euro in a 19 bed dorm!). Tried to find a way off road but was defeated by the lack of options and daylight. Body also wrecked from the 3 am start.

Walk with Mum, Dad and Anne H around the south of Quillan. Started out cloudy but soon cleared to a lovely day. Not been around here before and there are loads of lovely trails.

Nice and easy loop with Aislinn from their place. Cloudy, so not too hot. Good chat - thanks to Nanny Maria for babysitting.

Trail run warm up/down 16:29 [2] 2.27 km (7:16 / km) +525m 3:22 / km
shoes: VJ Falcons 14

Explored a bit around the top of the ski slope as had plenty of ti,e with the 25 minute call up. Would have been miserable had the weather been pish, but it was lovely in the sun.
11 AM

Orienteering race 44:13 [4] 7.11 km (6:13 / km) +181m 5:31 / km
shoes: VJ Falcons 14

O-Cerdanya Day 5, M21L, 5.8km, 200m.
Course notable for the massive amount of descent, got a chair lift to the start meaning that we started at nearly 2000m and finished at about 1600m. Most of that descent wasn't actually very enjoyable, being steep and on grass covered in small loose stones. It did make running at altitude less of an issue though. Mostly clean and the last part of the course through mature alpine woods was nice. Nice finish to the event.
3 PM

Road bike 2:00:16 [2] 71.68 km (1:41 / km) +123m 1:40 / km

Back to Esperaza from the Font-Romeu plateau. Did this a fez years ago on my mothers old bike and it was hard work, on a road bike it was easy - how can over 70km of downhill not be? Actually the weather tried its best with a strong headwind all the way and an epic thunderstorm right at the end - very glad for the helmet with hailstones the size of marbles.

Trail run warm up/down 5:17 [1] 0.71 km (7:29 / km) +4m 7:17 / km
shoes: VJ Falcons 14

Short warm up as wanting to save energy for the race.
11 AM

Orienteering race 1:44:52 [4] 14.52 km (7:13 / km) +600m 5:59 / km
shoes: VJ Falcons 14

O-Cerdanya Day 4, M21L 12.0km, 450m, 21 controls.
Plan to keep it slow and clean failed at #1 where I went the wrong side of a bush and then couldn't either find or get to it. Not bad thereafter, a lot less luck needed than yesterday with only a few trees in a forest to look for. Hot day and a late start, so was flagging a bit by the end. Good classic course.
