Sunday Apr 14 #

12 PM

Orienteering race 53:48 [4] 4.5 mi (11:57 / mi)
shoes: VJ Integrator (blue)

CLARO event, Dob Park and Snowden Crags.
Brown course, 6.4km 260m.
Had a long wait for a map because CLARO had only printed 15 Brown maps! The new extension was a little disappointing. A few interesting crags but the mapping didn't do it justice (e.g. the runnability mapping was the wrong way round: fast dead bracken mapped as walk, waist high heather as fast run). I hadn't run at Dob Park before and found it a reasonably interesting (if tough) area. So, all in all, just about worth the trip.
Because of the wait for maps there was a group of half a dozen of us all going off at one minute intervals at the end of the start block. I had Andy Thorpe behind me and was quite pleased to hold him off despite the high visibility over the first 5 controls. I really only lost time on #8 where I was too far right and had to bail out to the path to relocate. No more than a minute binned. Happy enough with that and, most importantly, still in one piece for the JK.
4th place, 7 mins down on Aidan Rigby. Results:

Trail running 15:00 [2] 1.5 mi (10:00 / mi)
shoes: VJ Integrator (blue)

Some jogging around to keep warm whilst waiting for re-cycled maps and a brisker run to the far start.

Monday Apr 8 #

(rest day)

Feeling a bit tired today. Time to start tapering for the JK now anyway.

As a matter of interest I've done a bit of a comparison between the first 3 months of 2019 and 2018:
Running 155 miles + cycling 280 miles. Total 60 hours.
Running 246 miles + cycling 330 miles. Total 74 hours.
So around 25% increase on last year. This is all down to staying injury free. Fingers crossed that the benefit will show at the JK....

Pilates 1:00:00 [0]
