Orienteering 1:00:00 [3] 5.0 mi (12:00 / mi)

Target race for the spring :(
Obviously it was never going to happen, so I didn't drag anyone out of bed, and after some faffage at the silent start explaining that
a) I was an hour late,
b) this is a walking stick,
c) I am wearing #1 and so I would like an elite map.

Walked about a dozen controls. All a bit too far apart in my state, but from what I saw it really looked like the best possible use of the area. Proper long leg with loads of route choice, fast bits, slow bits, urban leg. Shame not to have been able to do it.

Orienteering 1:25:00 [3] 6.9 mi (12:19 / mi)

JK middle. Windmill Hill
Having hobbled round yesterday, went out planning to walk round the paths and find a few flags. But actually the forest turned out to be really nice, so did some going straight stuff too, and before I knew it was well in to the course at the far end of the area. Kept trundling along and to my great surprise, actually finished the course! Left left still numb below the knee, but stick provided enough stability, and "ran" using upper legs only, which is a bit weird but left the quads satisfyingly sore at the end,

Orienteering 23:47 [2] 2.0 mi (11:53 / mi)

JK Sprint. Aldershot Barracks
Able to walk comfortably with a stick. Slightly struggling on steps and slope, walked round the sprint course on a lovely sunny day, which was fun and satisfying.

Last time I was here there was some unreadable cartography and I got randomly DQed by emitag. There were two protests. This time however the unreadable cartography was still there (15-16) and I got DQed again, but because I entered elite tomorrow I had a backup so got reinstated.

Pain subsiding, walking OK, bending not so much. Left leg still numb. Everything moves, but only with concentration, collapsed when trying to "run" a step.

am Still needing the stick, but pain easing a bit now with combined ibuprofen & paracetemol. Left leg numb, wont support weight stably coming downstairs. By pm. walked home with the stick, but didn't really need it. Acute pain now moved to lower L back. More comfortable sitting up straight

No progress. Walked into work with a stick, which was quite sore enough.
