Orienteering 1:24:25 [2]
ahr:131 max:159

Paul T invited me to join him to check out Brierley in preparation for CLOK Juniors event later in the year. He had planned a 40 control control picking course, which I had decided to do as O-Intervals. It was snowing and cold, and the terrain was horrible so nothing went to plan. I made lots of mistakes, was very hesitant and struggled to run hard. To top it all, I got back to my car wet and cold to find my window smashed in and all my warm clothes, wallet and phone missing. Should just have stayed in bed!

Running long 2:17:05 [3]
ahr:150 max:163

Long run starting at Clay Bank, all the way along the Cleveland Way to Osmotherley. It had snowed overnight, so there was nice fresh snow on the ground and beautiful views. I got a bit lost going up into Coal Mire so it took a bit longer than I had expected. Struggled a bit towards the end (and it had got muddy rather than snowy) but still mostly enjoyed the run.

Warm up for POM Day 4. Desperately wanted to be properly focussed so really concentrated on doing a good warm up and not leave myself flustered.

Running warm up/down 21:40 [1]
ahr:134 max:150

Warm up for POM Day 3

Orienteering race 1:32:00 [4]

POM Day 3. Bit of a disaster; had remembered my start time wrong so got rushed through the start lanes. Managed to spike first control but it all went very wrong after that. After 3 5minute mistakes I decided to jack it in and jogged back to finish.
