Orienteering long 1:59:33  12.09 km (9:53 / km) +372m 8:34 / km
Orienteering out on Burbage with Kyhil, I took the men's course from BUCS 2013 (though I sadly didn't use an updated map).
The first 10 controls were fairly slow going because I was trying to teach Kyhil, and getting him to navigate half of the legs. I found the rock a little sketchily mapped around that first section, a lot left out for seemingly no reason. This made it a bit difficult for Kyhil, as a beginner. Burbage is also fairly vague in places, which is not great for a newbie, so I suppose I should have planned a little easier section for him to do.
From 10 I took over and kept going until 20, at which point it was getting dark, so I decided it would be sensible to throw in the towel. It was pretty cold, still snow in many places, and the marshes were slushy with ice. I was a far cry from the original winning time of 65 minutes!!
I think it might be more valuable (both from a orienteering and physical training perspective) to do a shorter orienteering session on a Saturday maybe, and then go for a long run on Sunday. I just don't think this was an amazing session from a physiological standpoint, too slow going and a lot of heather / bracken / fallen timber bashing.
