10 AM

Running warm up/down (xc) 11:45 [2] 1.4 km (8:24 / km)
ahr:130 max:142 shoes: inov-8 oroc 280 red

Orienteering race (forest/open fell) 1:28:35 [3] 10.2 km (8:41 / km)
ahr:144 max:156 shoes: inov-8 oroc 280 red

SROC long Hampsfell, M21L 9.3km (19/24)

Another day of not coping with the downhill sections of which again, there were many but today with added sharp limestone. Obvious from my average HR that on top of this limitation I also took it quite easy generally, probably sensible.

Overall I'm not disappointed. Fast or not if I can complete a couple of days orienteering such as this then the future is surely bright!
3 PM

Walking long (open fell) 2:04:55 [1] 7.5 km (16:39 / km)

Great Langdale - Lining Crag

Our wilderness camping rucksacks were pre-packed before the orienteering so all we had to do afterwards was grab some lunch, drive to Langdale, pay the Old Dungeon Ghyll hotel for two days parking (prior to us checking in on Tuesday afternoon) and get out and up onto the fells.

Christian threw a spanner in the works by removing his beef chili from his stomach just before starting our walk. He had some poor excuse to do with my driving and the narrow, bendy roads between Newby Bridge and Langdale.

Gradually as we climbed higher and higher it became obvious that the weather was not going to be our friend on this day. We changed our plans accordingly and missed the Harrison Stickle summit plus after changing our minds a few times ended up descending down towards Stonethwaite instead of going up and over Ullscarf which turned out to be a really good decision.

Running warm up/down (xc) 10:30 [1] 1.0 km (10:30 / km)
ahr:126 max:143 shoes: inov-8 oroc 280 red

Orienteering race (forest) 48:40 [3] 4.9 km (9:56 / km)
ahr:153 max:163 shoes: inov-8 oroc 280 red

LOC middle Haverthwaite, Black 4.4km (27/51)

A really tough test for the knee. The one thing I am simply rubbish at just now is descending and there was quite a bit of that today. It was a little scary at times, especially the last few controls where fortunately I just ran into them - certainly wasn't looking at the map much.

I did really enjoy myself though, it says something about these S Lakes forests that I can come back here after many years of Scandi forests and still find the challenge v interesting. Beautiful to run through too.

Orienteering (forest) 1:07:35 [2] 5.4 km (12:31 / km)
shoes: inov-8 oroc 280 red

In the Lakes for a few days of orienteering and wilderness camping with Christian.

After flying and getting stuck unnecessarily in a traffic jam on the M6 (I still know exactly what I'm doing on English motorways without having to look at any map, honest) managed to get out with a map on Bigland.

Saw an eagle, we think, well, a massive bird of some sort in any case. Also came across a pheasant but fortunately not across any shotgun pellets flying towards it.

Even though I've run here a couple of times before the fairytale forest exceeded my expectations :)

Medium trail route. Tried to put a bit more effort in than usual, knee seemed to cope ok with that.
