Orienteering race 46:00 [4]

BOC Relays.
I was placed in the 2nd team. In hindsight - given the technicality of the terrain maybe I shouldn't have but none of us could have foreseen the technical O we got today - it was fab!
I wasn't really motivated for this I must say - have had Will drop out on us and then Caspian took rather a long time on 1st leg so I was never really going to do anything noticeable outside of my own personal performance.

But boy was it fun! I really got into it as things went on and I loved how the course went from fast white to intricate green and flipped about a lot. needless to say I felt better (fast and stronger) than yesterday and really enjoyed this. More than happy with the result.

Orienteering race 1:21:00 [4]

British Champs - Culbin
And so the day arrived. Collected Andy, Andy and Jase from Inverness airport and got to event all OK. a rushed no 2 at the start but other than that a good start to the race - got into my stride pretty quickly and caught Paul Whiston 2 mins by no 3. I was going too fast with him on the long leg after that and missed the next - Paul helped me get on track and I returned the help for another 6 controls before I dropped him (outnavigated I think). I didn't feel special today - but the o went pretty well (other than a wander on a long leg later on) and I ran as hard as I could (I think). I couldn't have beaten Andy Simpson's time so am happy with the 2nd or 3rd position I got. I was a bit disappointed the course wasn't as technical as it could have been - but still a great day compared to the rest of the boring crap an average British Orienteer has to put up with.

Intervals intervals 50:00 [4]

Intervals with FVO crowd. Another great turnout.
was meant to be 15/30/45/60/45/30/15 x 2 but I whimped the second set after a few because I was a tired bunny.
Everybody working hard and going well (apart from me).
