Orienteering race (British Relays) 40:40 [5]
shoes: adidas swoops

Again, started off well and got into a sizeable lead with Nixon (snr) at #7. Ballsed up in the green and got passed by lots of people. Tiredness and tummy sickness set in and my feet started hurting and I, again, turned into a pussy. Just came back first, but should have given Neil and Oli a big advantage and didn't. They both had great runs and 2nd was a good result in the end. I've now got a massive open blister on my foot and I won't be able to run for a few days.

Orienteering race (British Long Champs) 1:23:04 [5]
shoes: adidas swoops

Started off well but got tired half way round and was a bit of a pussy after that and only hung on for a solid result, so 2nd was as much as I deserved really. Need to fight harder to win these things. A few wobbles but nothing major. Never had my brain go like that before. Enjoyed it and coped well with the terrain.

Running 42:00 [3]
shoes: Brooks Cascadia Pivot

From Peely's up Endcliffe, up to Lodge Moor, couldn't be assed with the top of Rivelin so trespassed on the golf course instead. Back down Tom Lane. Felt fine. Tessa Harrison (1 point) in Endcliffe, plus I saw a guy who was doing reps with me at track on Tuesday (2 points). Total 21 points.

Orienteering (Tankersley Spring Cup) 40:00 [4]
shoes: jalas o-shoes

Set off fairly hard but legs weren't feeling great so struggled round the second half. Technique ok apart from a miss at 11, but control flow shocking cos of unfolding map at each control to punch (I didn't have a control card). Yep all good, not much else to say on that really.

Running intervals 20:00 [5]
shoes: Nike Air Zoom Vomero +2

Whoopdedoo 8x500m with 2mins rest. Legs stiff cos it was cold and wet. Tucked in behind little Sprot on the first 4, got ahead on 5-7 and got soundly thumped by Danger and Camel on the last. Haven't got that speed in my legs, but kept my pace up through all 8. Going through 400s in about 65-66.

Running 55:00 [2]
shoes: Nike Air Zoom Vomero +2

To track, drills and then back home with Neil. You should have heard the obsenities coming coming out of Neil's mouth talking about Sprotty's no show tonight - I was disgusted.
