Orienteering race 1:01:28 [4] 7.0 mi (8:47 / mi)
shoes: VJ Integrator (blue)

JK Day 2. Long race, Cold Ash.
M55L 9.7km 260m.
Good start and pretty much perfect as far as #12 where I caught Mike Johnson. Hadn't planned ahead for the route choice to #13 so lost a little time before deciding on the urban route to the right. Lost more time turning right a couple of tracks early on the first part of the leg. Mike had taken the route to the left and it was reassuring to arrive at #13 together. That was how it stayed for the rest of the race. It did help maintain the pace as I was tiring and we gradually added to the train as we went along. Handy to have Big Jon show us where #25 was. Finished feeling that I hadn't left anything out there. Pleased to take the win, although this time by just a handful of seconds from Tim.

1st place overall. I've now won the JK in my first year as a M35, M40, M45 and M55. As a M50 I had to wait until my second year because I stupidly tried to do the Sprint in my first year ;-)

Orienteering 15:00 [2] 1.0 mi (15:00 / mi)

Warm up on the model map.
No warm down at all. Mistake. Must be more disciplined in future!

Orienteering race 36:58 [4] 4.0 mi (9:15 / mi)
shoes: Innov8 X-Talon (3)

JK Day 2, Middle Distance, Windmill Hill.
M55L, 5.4km 175m.
Mostly good but some time lost at #7, #13 and #14.
#7 I chose the western crossing point but didn't execute the route to it very well and got caught in the peninsular between the ponds in the canal. -30s maybe.
#13 in oxygen debt at the top of the climb I got confused and turned left instead of right. Corrected quickly but probably another 30s binned.
#14 I got onto the spur north of the correct one. Realised pretty quickly so only lost roughly another 30s.
Struggling on the hills in the heat (24 degrees) but I guess it was the same for everyone. Happy to take the win and pleased for Phil to finish 2nd. Tomorrow is another day. 10km will seem a long way in this temperature.

Trail running 10:00 [2] 1.0 mi (10:00 / mi)
