Clevedon Court - Green

Very enjoyable run in a lovely small bit of woods, even in the rain
Seemed to lose more time than I thought, where I did make mistakes

No. 3 - Seemed a lot longer than expected and drifted too far right - came across path/bank crossing and took a while to work out I had gone nowhere near as far as I thought - 40 secs

No. 4 - hot a large depression, thinking it was one of the three mapped ones, with control in middle, turned right, no more depressions, went back other way, no more depressions - carried on another 10 metres and found the 3 (smaller) depressions - 1:20

No. 11 - thought I took a good line, but ended up much furtehr left of control than expecting and couldn't quite match the map - 1:10

No. 12 - slightly left - 15 secs

No. 13 - overshot very slightly - 30 secs

No. 16 - took wrong path in quarry initialy - 30 secs

2 PM

Orienteering 23:00 [3] 2.77 km (8:18 / km) +100m 7:02 / km

Control Collecting

Biggest error of the day - got back to car and counting up to make sure I got them all and saw a control on far east of map which had not been on our course, which I had missed as map was folded..... so had to go for that one after!!

Achilles a little bit sore, so no night event tonight, just rugby (dull game, but at least England won!)

Thursday Feb 8 #

Run race 43:50 [3] 8.54 km (5:08 / km) +271m 4:26 / km

Piercefield Park Night Race

Started very steady and quite far back, as waned to see how Achilles was - possibly a bit too far back.

Felt ok so found a nice steady pace and was racing a young lad from FoD for a large part of race. Overtaken on downhill after water features by 2nd Lady, but stayed jus behind her on first part back on Wye Valley path - overtook her just before steps - then felt good up last hill and overtook about 4 more - although the MDC guy just pipped me on line with a sprint my aged legs couldn't match

32nd - quite happy with this and think it was another step forward

Tuesday Feb 6 #

Run 1:12:45 [3] 12.21 km (5:57 / km) +344m 5:13 / km

First part od Dursley Dozen route with Tim, Gareth, Brad and Haydn - snow coming down more towards the end

Ankle/achilles generally ok, but was being very tentative on the downhills and rougher stuff, where I could occasionally feel it..... no pain at all when on the smooth bits - absolutely no problems on roads - maybe I should become a road runner instead (or possibly not!!)

Light was playing up a bit, not sure of it is a loose connection or was not properly charged

Nice route and a couple of new paths I think

Ankle/achilles fine this morning too (7th Feb)

Sunday Feb 4 #

(rest day)

Ankle sore this morning

It was fine for the urban last night, but felt weak and sore in the middle race
