Orienteering race (JK Day 3) 1:10:00 [4] 10.43 km (6:43 / km) +306m 5:51 / km
shoes: Inov-8 Oroc 340

Craig a Barns. M21L 8.1km.

Having not run for more than 2 consecutive days for months and months, and having realised my lack of terrain fitness I dropped out of the Elite Classic to do the shorter M21L in the hope that I might be left with a little energy to make myself useful in the relay.

Still felt absolutely beasted after this though. Even tougher terrain, but this time the sort of terrain that I just couldn't actually run in. Navigation was actually alright until I totally screwed up no.11, losing more than 10 minutes wandering around a middle green forested hillside.

Still, it was nice to be out in a 'proper' forest and to be doing generally ok with the map reading. Garmin tells me that of the 110mins I was out, I was standing still for nearly 15mins.

Finished 8th, 30mins behind Joe Taunton's lead time.

Orienteering race (JK Middle Race) 42:14 [4] 5.78 km (7:18 / km) +182m 6:19 / km
shoes: Inov-8 Oroc 340

Dunalastair (Loch Tummel). M21E 5.1km.

A great race on what I found to be tough terrain. Caught 2 mins up on Jonathan Rhys by no.3 and we played cat & mouse for the rest of the course. Made it a very exciting race, neither of us being able to get far enough ahead to get away. Found the terrain very hard to get any speed through and felt totally sapped by the end.

Lost some significant time on no.6 which I guess lost me a handful of places.

45th. Ahead of John, but behind Quiche.

Run - Off road warm up/down 11:00 [2] 2.0 km (5:30 / km)
shoes: Inov-8 Oroc 340

Jog to the start.

Orienteering race (JK Sprint) 19:33 [4] 4.06 km (4:49 / km)
shoes: Inov-8 Terrafly 303

Livingston Almondvale. M21E 2.7km.

Great fun, but took it too conservatively to get a good result. Despite the conservative approach I still made a couple of big ballsups. Way off the mark on the results list - 62nd, but just 1 second behind Schnitzel.
