(injured) (rest day)

Had a sports massge today instead of trying to run. Masseur said she couldn't feel too much wrong and I'm hopeful I could be running (slowly) in time for France. Stretching.

Orienteering race 5:00 [3] 0.5 mi (10:00 / mi)

Day 5. Loch Nell and Shenavallie. 7.7km, 210m.
OK, so sensible doesn't come easily for me. My calf didn't feel as sore as I had expected this morning so I went to the start and picked up my map. After about 5 mins of steady running (half way to no 2) the pain suddenly increased and I knew that was it. Walked back via 8, 9, 10 and 11. I shan't be running at all tomorrow. Promise. More ice.

Orienteering 21:00 [4] 2.0 mi (10:30 / mi)

Day 4. Torinturk. 8.2km, 300m.
Felt left calf go (in same place as last time) at no 5. Continued up the hill to no 6 without too much discomfort but as soon as I went downhill to no 7 the pain was too much to continue. Walked back.
I guess that's the end of my week. Hopefully I might be OK for the French 6 Days which starts a week on Sunday if I'm sensible now. Ice. Only interest in the results is what position I was in at no 5.
Edit: comfortably in the lead at both 5 and 7 where I decided to retire. Gutted.

(rest day)

Well needed rest day. Tempted by the sprint race, but not seriously. I start after Aasheim tomorrow for the only time this week. Got to make it count!

Orienteering race 59:34 [3] 5.5 mi (10:50 / mi)

Day 3, Creag Mhic Chailein. 7.5km, 345m.
5th, 8 mins down on Aasheim. Only lost a minute or two in mistakes, mostly at no 8. The early start was more of a disadvantage than I appreciated, but at least that's it out of the way for the week now. Well needed rest day tomorrow.

Orienteering race 49:43 [4] 5.0 mi (9:57 / mi)

Day 2, Ardnaskie. 6.7km, 290m.
2nd again, 3mins down on Aasheim this time and with smaller lead over the rest of the field. A few small misses towards the end totalling about 2.5mins. Earlier start probably didn't help either. I concede to Aasheim already, but first Brit would be nice...

Orienteering race 50:37 [4] 5.0 mi (10:07 / mi)

Scottish 6 Days, Day 1. Dunollie and Dunstaffnage. M45L, 6.7km, 340m.
2nd to Arild Aasheim, NOR by 21s. Very clean run, gutted to only get one point better than third (Dave R) who was nearly 7 mins behind. Legs feeling tired on the (many) steep climbs. Left calf OK, but R achilles niggly again.
