Orienteering race 34:05 [5] *** 10.0 km (3:25 / km)
spiked:21/21c slept:8.5

Nottingham city race. Not the most exciting course, but ran round at a decent pace and I reckon I lost less than 10 seconds all told, most of it when I had a collision with another orienteer (I really need to stop taking people out). Nice day out, and good to see a bit more of Nottingham.


Running 30:00 [2] 5.0 km (6:00 / km)

Decent warm up and warm down around the castle.

Running 1:50:00 intensity: (1:05:00 @3) + (45:00 @4) 20.0 km (5:30 / km)

Spent the morning recovering from our holiday, then got itchy feet and headed out to Redmires for a terrain fartlek session. Ran along conduit, High Neb, Bamford Edge, Higger, Ox Stones, Burbage mines and back via a tresspass over the dam. Took direct lines wherever possible and got good and dirty. My efforts were ~13 mins, 7 minns, 9 mins, 3 mins, 1.5 mins, 9 mins.

Running 1:40:00 [2] 16.0 km (6:15 / km)

Nice steady run with Jen from Yarner Woods (near Bovey Tracey) to Hay Tor, Hound Tor and Great tor on Dartmoor. Beautiful morning and we were out for considerably longer than 100 mins taking photos, scrambling up tors and looking at the views.

Climbing 20:00 [1]

Climbing and bouldering at Roche rocks with Shane, Pippa and Jenny. Shane and Pippa were very patient with us and helped us up a nice route.
5 PM

Orienteering race 23:59 [5] 6.0 km (4:00 / km)

Eden project sprint race. Loads of fun racing around the grounds and through the biomes, including a section in hot and humid rainforest. All very intense and difficult to get to where you wanted to get to, but managed to stay on top of it most of the way. Biggest time loss came when I knocked a small boy (an orienteer fortunately) over - I stopped to help him up and his mum told me to carry on, but I still felt the bad karma weighing me down. Hope he was alright!

Running 35:00 [2] 7.0 km (5:00 / km)

Decent warm up including some drills and a double warm down first with GG, then with Rob and Shane.

Running 35:00 [2] 6.0 km (5:50 / km)

Running about along the coastal footpaths from Lands End. Spent a while looking for Shane, Heather and Pippa, and eventually found them at the bottom of a big sea cliff. A really stunning day.
4 PM

Climbing 20:00 [1]

Climbed a couple of easy routes and did a bit of scrambling about on the cliffs with the waves pounding away beneath us. Spotted a seal a few times and spent plenty of time soaking up some much needed vitamin D.

3 PM

Running 1:05:00 [3] 12.0 km (5:25 / km)

Gentle run along the coast path from Horns Cross back to Abbotsham. Tired legs but felt good to run, great to get out for no purpose other than to run.

Orienteering race 29:31 [5] 7.0 km (4:13 / km)

JK relay on the dunes. Nick and Nails ran well to set me off with Andy P for the SYO second team behind a non-comp Norwegian team and about 3 mins down on ShUOC. Ran hard for the first few legs to ensure that I wasn't caught by anyone, one smallish mistake but otherwise pretty good, don't think I could have done any more. Finished 2nd, good fun and nice to be able to see the map today.
5 PM

Running 30:00 [2] 6.0 km (5:00 / km)

Nice easy run on the roads with Rob and Gareth. Felt good to loosen off the legs.
