Orienteering 1:11:29 intensity: (16 @0) + (2:36 @1) + (21:14 @2) + (38:56 @3) + (8:27 @4) 8.6 km (8:19 / km) +181m 7:31 / km

Well, I suppose you could call it orienteering. It was a snowy turf zone check out Lendrick way at a gentle jogging pace. Took my first two revisits ever (in Dunblane! They normally only last 10 minutes!) en route. Thought I'd be first around the Lendrick path but, no, there were footprints in the snow ahead of me - we're a hardy lot out here.
AboutTurn is now in the right place :-). OneToTree is in entirely the wrong place but it's on the path, so, hey ho.
Knee reduced me to a walk at 7km which is fine, I guess, and largely thanks to the soft snow reducing impact forces. Might regret it later but I am missing getting my HR above 110 so couldn't resist risking the "jog".

Lunchtime note: JonX came across for a visit and completely wiped me out - 24 zones to 0 in the space of an hour, but he in turn has had nearly all his conquests cancelled by Jason, Dawn/Louise, Rupert and now MaDVaL, who is playing catchup. At one point all of them were frantically chasing each other around the map on my Turf App. All in a morning's turfing in Dunblane! RogerG and whit1001 have yet to get out and wreak their havoc. Still plenty of life in the day, yet.

Pre-work wander up in the woods, making sure to visit the three zones new to me. Crawford's SherrifArrow is a proper off-path orienteering control, fun. My dodgy contribution, ChickenedOut, was meant to be where the Coronation Chicken MTB trail crosses the ride, but was 10m off; TBH I'm inclined to leave it as it's probably best off the MTB trail anyway.

Got back to see that my zone suggestions for the west side of town have also arrived. There's still plenty of potential over that side, both in the middle and to the NW and SW, but finding zones in the middle that aren't on roads (not allowed) is difficult. Parks and paths OK. Need to look at an O map.

More new zones, wahoo!

Imagine my delight when, just short of the wooden bridge on the Darn Path en route to get a correct georef for the dodgy BenGunnsCave, my suggested zone for the bridge - plus a pile of others - appeared on the map in front of me! Huzzah!

Got a new fix for BGC, and waypointed three more on the Darn Path en route back to Dunblane. It all went a bit Pete Tong when I noticed Roger's red meeple appear on the map just as I was taking Ardleighton. I had to run - run! - along the road to get to Kippendavie, hoping that the hotel and two new turfs en route would slow Roger down enough for me to nab it. I then nipped around the play park so that he wouldn't see me, popping out too far up the hill towards BinCleaning for him to be able to catch me. He arrived just in time to get an assist, lol. Slapstick fun.

Headed home, to watch Rog bag all the new ones up the hill, only to be subsequently wiped out by Jase and sajl, with weegin heading over ParkOfKeir (must get some zones in there) to take BGC and all my other morning conquests. Rosco - you came to DBL a day too soon. And just wait until the ones I suggested on the west side of town appear on the map at some point! Lol.

Morning Walk checking zone placements. Having more fun researching new zones than actually taking them, but since I was there anyway... Just the one (AboutTurn) that needs a wee tweak. Took waypoints for 3 new ones, too. Had a lovely chat with Frank and Kate en route, in the middle of a snow shower!
Still having to give the bike a miss. Oh well, easy week.
Almost had to go get popcorn later whilst watching Simon H's wipeout of my zones being itself decimated by Louise, Ross & Fi, with Rup also making a showing - seeing off two interlopers from the Hillfoots, who were bagging loops in the centre of town, with Eilidh & Beccy also on the case. Carnage! :-D

Morning walk with turfs, something to do. Headed down into the town for a change, following in Janine's footsteps - and taking all of her turfs, oops - as it transpired! Another of those footwear dilemma days; slippy soles or crunchy dobs? Went for the latter. VERY crunchy.

Wanted to check out the last of my new zones, added late last night, at the top of the Pisgah climb; Roger had got there before me, of course, as with the other two. It does need moving a little - I'd had to make best guess because of the tree cover on the satellite image.
7 PM

Cycling (Zwift meetup) 1:01:14 intensity: (10 @1) + (8:45 @2) + (37:51 @3) + (13:59 @4) + (29 @5) 30.28 km (29.7 kph) +443m
ahr:135 max:165 shoes: Genesis Croix de Fer 30 2016

Paul Hammond's Meetup - Royal Pump Room 8.
Easy sesh, Paul and I dragging along the old geezers ;-).
It does bring home the fact that Zwift is just a game when I'm able to cruise along whilst the other guys - whom I wouldn't see for dust IRL - are all having to push out >300W to keep up. Guess I'd better stick to the virtual realm!!!
