orienteering 1:28:00 [3]

Control collecting at Cambus/Muir of Dinnet. Very pleasant afternoon with sunshine and cool temperature. Lovely forest, so technical and varied.

steady run 30:00 [3]

Faffing at the JIRCs, to and from starts a few times and a run round a few controls late on looking for a late finisher.
Satisfying day as 4 courses had winning times within the suggested spread and the other 2 courses were won significantly faster - by utterly outstanding runs (M14 won by 6 minutes and W14 by 5 minutes!)
Very impressed by the M18s who managed to cover the 9.5km in sub 80 mins, especially Finlay Todd with his 7.7mins/km.
Compared to last year the times were long - but then last year only one course had a winning time over 40 minutes...

steady run 1:25:00 [3]

With S, Aboyne bridge to CarnFerg and back via the Fungle. Steady pace up the hill and didn't feel left calf at all. Pleasant day but a bit cooler than of late, maybe Autumn is drawing near ;-)

orienteering 1:48:00 [3]

Hanging controls for JIRCs - started with 15, too many! Better once I was down to 10 or so. Forest in great condition, only got one wet foot in nearly 2 hours of running.

steady run 35:00 [3]

Checking a few map issues. Cloudless skies and warm sun. Nowhere better than user Deeside on a day like this!


2 hours surveying, small extension.

steady run 20:00 [3]

Run back to car. Met farmer and had a good natter about things.

orienteering 1:55:00 [3]

Checking issues on a second area. Tired at start, struggled in middle but lovely forest in second half meant better running.

stretching 12:00 [1]

Usual plus some rolling - painful area is getting smaller and the pressure I can put on it increasing -should be good news.
