orienteering 1:15:03 [5] 6.8 mi (11:02 / mi) +435m 9:12 / mi

Northern Champs, Wass, M50L

Very physical course with lots of climb. I coped fairly well with the physical stuff but lost time on the climbs. Also a bit of time lost with mistakes.

#3 didn't find the elephant track going up from the road at first so I got in some brambles, then climbed a bit too high and reached the rocks above and a little short of the control. Easy to relocate but a bit careless. 1 minute lost. I should have come down from the ride above but didn't see it on the map. I did see it at the junction but had made my mind up by then.

#8 the contours didn't seem quite right below the control, the re-entrant coming up from below brought me out too far to the right which caused me to ponder for a few moments. Then I looked behind a different plausible boulder before finding the right one, trying to find the mapped boulder in the middle of a mapped boulder field. 30 seconds lost.

#13 coming downhill through green I was fairly sure I was left of the line, but when I came out into the open forest I couldn't make any of the contour shapes fit so I turned left instead of right, turned back round when I saw the boulder with a control on it. Had I come out of the green just a few yards to the right I would have been able to see the control. 1 minute lost.

Enjoyed it, apart from maybe the last loop which seemed to be gratuitous climb without any real orienteering interest.

Parkside Road and Hollies, much the same as yesterday but with longer faster bits. Feeling a bit more sprightly today, getting used to the heat.

Super slow-mo running with Tasha. To Bywater and back through the Hollies. By the end I couldn't go any faster anyway. The heat.

toddle round the park in the sunshine.

Tuesday Apr 17, 2018 #

running 37:52 [4] 4.7 mi (8:03 / mi)

7 Arches. Feeling a bit sore from chasing Jase and Charlie on Sunday, and feeling a bit slow but kept moving fairly well.

Drier and warmer.
