Sunday Oct 23 #

steady run warm up/down 5:00 [3]

orienteering race 1:29:00 [5]

Newborough Forest, Brown course. Much the same as yesterday - fewer long legs and more in terrain. Legs tired from start and almost gave up at 3/4s when I went very close to finish. One miss when I drifted a bit left of my planned line and mis-read contours, cost me 1-2 mins.
End ed up 3 mins ahead of CA and 3 mins behind CH.

Saturday Oct 22 #

steady run 10:00 [3]

Brief warm up

orienteering race 1:18:45 [4]

Newborough Forest, brown course 9.3km. Started steady and kept moving steadily in the right direction. Lost approx 1min on C3 by getting stuck in brambles (avoided them like the plague after that). No real misses, just a few hesitations in the circle and a few slight drifts off line. Ended 5th(?), just 8secs behind CA, and 5 mins down on AT. Lots more brambles than my memory of the forest - forest gradually being swallowed by them.

Friday Oct 21 #


Wander round Caernarvon castle for much of the morning (free entry due to some poppy display- result!).

Thursday Oct 20 #


Hill walk on some hills east of A5. 4 hills and out for almost 4.30. Rain stayed off and only occasional cloud - good day out.

Wednesday Oct 19 #


Had planned a hill walk today - all forecasts suggested cloudy but dry... unfortunately the weather gods don't read the forecasts and it was pissing it down when we reached the start point. So we headed north to coast and wandered along the North Wales coastal path for a bit then visited a local castle. Out for about an hour

cycling 30:00 [2]

A quick whiz round half of Llanberis lake and a walk pushing/carrying bikes for rest!

Tuesday Oct 18 #


Walk up Snowdon, tried to do Crib Goch but bailed out after some faffing trying to find the route up rocks. Then went up the "tourist" track (completely washed out and unmarked in large sections). No wind till on summit ridge. Came back down via miners track. Approx 3.30 total.

Monday Oct 17 #


Rest day, travelling to Wales.
