Running (trails) 1:14:01 [2] 12.01 km (6:10 / km) +206m 5:41 / km
shoes: Inov-8 X-Talon 212 (2016)

Trails on the Sheep's Head with one of the other docs, PW. Bantry to Durrus. Actually about 70% road and 30% trail. The weather wasn't playing ball and it was wet and wild atop the ridge. PW wasn't wearing proper trail shoes so we cut the route short after he slipped a few times. Anyway it was nice to get out and do some exercise - maybe my last time on these trails before I leave Bantry? Working nights this week so body clock confused.

Orienteering race 2:36:41 [3] 14.53 km (10:47 / km) +521m 9:09 / km
shoes: Inov-8 X-Talon 212 (2016)

Brown course. I took it fairly handy as I was feeling stiff from the relative lack of exercise lately and didn't want to get injured. Also I ended up taking in some of the controls as I was the last person out. I really enjoyed this - not perfect technically but so much better than I would have been here a couple of years ago. I suppose this was helped by the fact that I was running more slowly and taking time to read the detail and make reasonable route plans.

4 PM

Orienteering 33:23 [2] 2.78 km (12:01 / km) +100m 10:11 / km
shoes: Inov-8 X-Talon 212 (2016)

Controls in. Whatever little physical training I have done over the summer has given me good endurance for being out in the hills for long periods. Climbing wasn't a problem but descending safely off some cliffs proved difficult! One area where crags aren't mapped caused me a bit of trouble getting back down hill while trying to balance carrying controls! A beautiful, sunny Autumn day - just a pity this event wasn't better attended.
