Orienteering race (Holyrood Park ) 1:48:13 [3] *** 10.96 km (9:52 / km) +375m 8:26 / km
spiked:26/28c shoes: Walshes

Not sure how I ended up on Brown (the longest available). Tried to change to Blue but no maps. Still it'll make me fitter, right? Tried to just be accurate and keep going as much as a good - couldn't run up the hills but ran everything I could. The race was really nice and I enjoyed the butterfly on top of one of the hills. Missed 2 controls, didn't go up early enough for the 4th, and nearly decided I was wrong on one on gorse (I couldn't see it but was really close). Nice bit through the streets at the end. Not sure why we changed back to the 1:10000 map though - having 2 start kites on one map is a bit dodgy.

Orienteering race (Edinburgh City Urban Race) 1:21:49 [4] 11.0 km (7:26 / km) +178m 6:53 / km
shoes: Saucony ProGrid Ride

Travelled up from Sheffield by train for the Edinburgh City Race. Got there just in time to change and go to the start. The first section of the race was in some flats (lots of steps and buildings), then through the old town and up calton hill. Only real mistake was starting to go to 9 rather than 6 (it was near 5 and the way my map was turned it looked like 6 - hard to see when many lines are broken), but it probably didn't cost me more than 30/30secs. Not sure I took the right route choice on the leg over calton hill (I went round the bottom to avoid climb) and there were a couple of others where I think Libby had a better route. Hamstring ok but hip hurting, still first time I've run that far in a while. Race was fun, with some hard climbing and a few annoying dog legs. Apparently the optimum was 11k so I can't have gone too far wrong!
