Orienteering race (Rewell Quarry Middle Race) 50:10 [4] *** 4.9 km (10:14 / km) +50m 9:44 / km
ahr:134 spiked:25/28c slept:8.0 weight:71kg

Needn't have been quite so apprehensive, although took a precautionary ibuprofen for my back. Technique was rusty, and running in terrain was handicapped, but once I'd got used to scale controls came up fine. I completely lost contact at 12, second quarry control, but by some enormous fluke the first flag I found was mine. After that I was ultra careful as I knew other people would mess their runs up themselves. Was quite pleased to escape relatively scot-free. Looking forward to Arundel now.

Orienteering race (Arundel Urban) 23:08 [5] 2.5 km (9:15 / km) +50m 8:25 / km
ahr:138 spiked:13/16c rhr:54 shoes: saucony swerve

Given the 50 mins of tough running this morning, I felt surprisingly zippy going up the first big hill. Focus on navigation helps you ignore niggles in knee and back. Was alright till the 'technical' leg 14, when I went the wrong way out of 13 and had to improvise a second best way into the dead end. Then ran straight past 15 in compensatory haste. OK result though, which I'm putting down to OK running.
