Sunday Jun 9 #

8 AM

Mountain Bike race 1:00:00 [2] 9.0 mi (6:40 / mi)
shoes: Shimano AM9 MTB SPD

British MTBO Champs Middle Distance.
M60 (Course C). 13.8km, 280m. 1st.
Better again. A couple of poor routes. Should have used the road on #2 and from #9 to #10. Also poor route exiting #14. Good enough to beat the previous 2 days' winner.

Great weekend. Well worth the trip. Big thanks to the organisers.

Saturday Jun 8 #

12 PM

Mountain Bike race 1:34:00 [2] 17.0 mi (5:32 / mi)
shoes: Shimano AM9 MTB SPD

British MTBO Champs, Long Distance
M60 (course C). 23.5km 200m. 2nd.
Better than yesterday but still a few annoying little mistakes. Closer to yesterday's winner but still a couple of minutes down. However he's not British...

Friday Jun 7 #

6 PM

Mountain Bike race 23:00 [2] 3.5 mi (6:34 / mi)
shoes: Shimano AM9 MTB SPD

British MTBO Champs Sprint.
Callendar Park.
M60 (course C) 5.3km, 70m. 3rd.
Made a hash of #1 (went via #2) and #7. Quite a lot of time blown. Al Landels covered the same distance for the B course which was a km longer. Splits would be interesting.
Edit: splits suggest I lost about 1.5 mins on #1 and nearly 2 on #7. More than enough to make up the difference to the leader.

Thursday Jun 6 #

5 PM

(rest day)

Golf. Club handicap team away to Longley Park. Lost 2 and 1. Team lost 3.5 to 0.5.
Achilles slightly iffy but hopefully a few days off running will allow it to settle.

Wednesday Jun 5 #

11 AM

Gym 20:00 [2]

Garage circuits.
6 PM

Orienteering race 48:00 [3] 4.5 mi (10:40 / mi)
shoes: VJ Integrator (yellow)

SYO Evening event, Scholes Coppice.
Blue course, 6.0km.
New area. Not as bad as feared. Would be nicer earlier in the season. Would also help if all the controls were in the right place. Nice run round anyway.
A bit too much tarmac for my Achilles' liking. No more running this week. Ice once home.

8 AM


Golf. Mid-week Medal off White tees. 89 gross/76 nett. Card spoilt by two 8's.
6 PM

Orienteering 1:00:00 [3] 6.0 mi (10:00 / mi)
shoes: Inov8 Mudclaw(4)

Andy Thornton Spunch from Little Hayfield.
60 min score on Maprun.
Just went for a nice circuit of Lantern Pike. Probably could have got a lot more points staying around Hayfield. These shoes are rubbish on wet rock and tarmac. Lots of care needed on stiles, etc.
A little worried about my Achilles as I pushed the pace a little to get back in time. Ice after.

(rest day)

Golf. Playing for the club handicap team again. This time v. Willow Valley (at Meltham). Won 2 up. Team won 4-0.
