Running warm up/down 25:00 [1] 1.5 km (16:40 / km)
shoes: New Balance Trail

Jogged to the start with my mum, then kept jogging around in the trees until my start time.

Orienteering race 36:05 [5] *** 5.0 km (7:13 / km) +80m 6:41 / km
shoes: New Balance Trail

Made a few small mistakes.
no.4 I wasn't sure i was on the right (not all the paths were marked, some wee just white strips in the green) path and saw a control on what looked like my control description, but it was too early, so looked at the number before realising and carrying on. (0:15)
no.5 I had folded my map right on a big path junction and when i got there i started up a path i couldn't see on my map for about 20m, then i came of the correct path too early and had to run parallel to my control. (0:30)
no.10 I found a ride that wasn't marked that made me hesitate, see a different control and then saw my control. It was supposed to be a deppression, but it was filled with water. (0:15)
no.11 I didn't correct enough for going round a pheasant pen and ended up in the next re-entrant along, hesitated and then realised what i had done. (0:30)
1:30 of mistakes
Felt a bit ill in the last few controls
Felt like a very fast run, came 3rd overall, ahead of Chris and Zac.

Running 1:22:00 [4] 10.8 km (7:36 / km) +327m 6:36 / km
shoes: New Balance Trail

Eddies Wednesday run
Ran with Steve F, Alice F, Tony W and Rebecca T
Every so often we paused to let the others catch up.
Steve and Rebecca didnt do bowstones and ran back down from the bottom of it.
Along the middlewood way, up the boardwalk (which had been taken up to be replaced, so it was ankle deep mud in some parts, not nice) then up to lyme park past throstlenest and green farm, more or less straight to the bottom of bowstones. Left along the park boundary to near west park gate and left along the road, right down a track, across a field and down another track to the pub at the end of Eddies road.
Dropped behind a lot coming down from the field near the end, i think i pushed too hard going up bowstones.

Running warm up/down 3:00 [1] 0.1 km (30:00 / km)
shoes: New Balance Trail

Warm Down: jogged up and down with a few dynamic stretches then did some static stretches. didnt feel great after the run
