Bruce Ridge with Nat and Al, via house. Nice cut-through down to tracks looks great for future access. Good fun out there. I ended up in the gravel with a flat - not sure which cam first but probably the flat. Used CO2 canister successfully for the first time ever! A bit of a nervous nellie after that especially as front tyre was now pretty hard and slipped a lot. Getting a feel back by the end but still not great.

Wanted a good day today (and as under pressure to get back to man the start). Started well but wheels fell off on way to 2. Looking for a saddle and could not see it in flat terrain so ran to where I thought it was ( regardless of compass). Was mightily wrong and lost 6 min! Ok for most ofthe way apart from getting unstuck getting to 7 in same area where I went wrong to 2.

A slightly better day today. Again wayward on 1, got pushed around by thick bush and found myself near finish... Ok until 5 where I tried to cut through high and early. Was too high and too early. Again, cut in early to 6 and lost a little time. Going to 8 I contoured via forest and could see a likely candidate for the control site from far off but did not head to it as it appeared so low. It was in fact the contrl, something funny with the map around there... Went too high to 9 and had to back track somewhat, obviously looked at neither my map nor compass to 10 and that cost 2 min - luckily no more.

About the same speed as Eoin for the part of the course where he and his broken foot were "taking it easy".

Oh dear, not a good day.

Had trouble getting into the map on way to 1 - you can see from trace I did a half-moon deviation back to the road heading to 1. Then on way to 3 just lost my head. Did not keep good track of where I'd been and where I was up to, translocated myself to somewhere else and ran down wrong (very long) spur. Need to concentrate better. Funnily, after I knew I'd made a massive mistake, my foot/ankle got sore (old crepitis style sore) and that stopped me running properly for rest of the course. It was in spasm for the next hour and then disappeared...

Orienteering 14:39 [3] 2.15 km (6:48 / km) +17m 6:32 / km
shoes: New Balance

Hard work today, felt like I'd run 10km not 2. Mucked up entrance to 3 despite stopping to check if there was a way through. Need to look at stronger glasses I think. After that ran wrong direction to 4. OK from there on.
