IW. Mild and windy, thankfully a tail one. Lots of dog walkers. Bike feels very different with the new wheels and higher gearing (has a 16T sprocket rather than 17T - have ordered an 18T, which i hope will be a better overall compromise).

HFW. Quite a bit colder than this morning, and although it had been raining, it was clear and dry with a lovely moon. Tree that had been leaning over the trail between Radyr and Hayley Park had been cut down.

Small trot to find some bushes. Legs feeling much better than yesterday.

Kenfig, Western Night league, 60 minute Score. This was so good, it's great to be able to do some proper orienteering! After a year and a half with no night-o it's suddenly two in a week. Much more enjoyable this week though and easier to find the controls as there was enough detail to nav by and they had just the right amount of reflector on them. Caught a minute on Matt W after ab out 1.5km and proceeded to spend most of the rest of the course together. Helped each other a few times (think I'm owned!) but mostly doing on own thing but going the same way. Only a few hesitations until I missed a path going to the penultimate control (on a path) and Matt got away. The proceeded to miss the last control, which was enough for Matt to gain the time that I'd caught at the start. Thanks Ben and Meg, great event and thoroughly enjoyed.

Trail run with Martyn from Henrhyd Falls. Not a particualrily nice day, lots of wind and it was quite damp, but the route was really nice. Been thinking about doing a loop like this for years, and happy that I eventually have. The falls were also pretty good - one you can go behind - but got even wetter there. Neither of us moving very well, so pretty slow.

IW. A bit more up for than yesterday but still in an easy mode really. Another lovely and cool morning, though no frost today.

HFW. In a bit more of a hurry, but still not moving very quickly. Leaving 15 minutes earlier meant it wasn't completely dark.

MDC run from Penderyn. Always enjoy this loop and tonight was no exception. Feeling heavy from Sunday but managed several good efforts. Ran the section from the mines to the waterfall without stopping, which meant we got quite fragmented and after visiting the waterfall, didn't allow enough for the very steady runners to catch up. Search party fond them though.
