Orienteering race 45:48 [5] **** 5.59 km (8:12 / km) +144m 7:15 / km
ahr:149 max:171 shoes: Silva K80 dobs

British relays, leg 1 on Mens Short. Started OK, a bit tired after yesterday but I ran well until #6, en route to which our course went straight into a pile of complete grot and I was careless. Once lost, it took me 8 or 9 minutes to find the control, despite running past it twice. Only a little scrappy after that but, despite religiously checking my codes, I managed to pull off my relay party trick at #10 and mispunched. Useless tosser.
So. The remainder of the year will be one of consolidating my fitness to get back to a sport I enjoy and can genuinely be half good at. Hill running. I'll never be better than total cr*p at orienteering.
Beccy had a great run with Abi and Tori to come 2nd in Womens Short. Well done, love!

Orienteering race 1:45:50 [5] **** 13.49 km (7:51 / km) +358m 6:56 / km
ahr:156 max:168 shoes: Silva K80 dobs

British O long champs. 11.3km +275m. Well, apart from losing 5 minutes in the technical grot at the very end, mostly down to tiredness, and maybe 5-6 mins on the rest of the course, I was pretty happy with my run. Given my complete lack of fitness after a useless winter of perpetual injuries, I held together reasonably well. Of course, I ended up nowhere in the results. As always.
Very proud of Beccy coming third despite making mistakes and very little training!

Strength training (Home circuits) 30:00 [1]

Geez will the top of my left hamstring EVER loosen off? It has been tight as a gnat's chuff since last year!

Running (Trail) 36:47 [3] 6.91 km (5:19 / km) +215m 4:36 / km
ahr:149 max:163 shoes: Saucony Grid Jazz Omni

Busy working and wedding planning - not much chance to get out today, but given that my legs were tired and my left hamstring sore, only having time to go for a short trot was probably a good thing. Was crawling along so slowly I was passed by a mummy duck and her ducklings. Well, OK she was going with the flow of the river, but even so...
