Orienteering race (Dunalastair) 1:04:46 [4] **** 7.01 km (9:14 / km) +215m 8:00 / km
spiked:13/20c shoes: Inov Mudroc 290

#1 was great, and then the race collapsed again, took a solid bearing, but didn't follow it and went a good 80degrees off my bearing!? No idea why, fortunately I found #3 so only 2 mins were wasted. #3 was good as i'd been there before, then on #4 i repeated the same error as #2: good bearing, didn't follow it and went 45degrees in the wrong direction! relocated 3.5mins later. 5 same issue. 6 well... some 10 mins went down the drain here, happy with my route choice, but was put off by this guy i was running with at the time, never got to my attack point as i went into the wrong depression. as soon as i left my "attack point" i knew something was wrong but didn't go back to my last known place, instead continued north to reach the fence. I relocated of a crossing point that wasn't on my map (surely this could be worth a complaint?) and so my bearing took me nowhere! Walked around a little then made my way back to the fence. Decided to go to the fence corner and take a bearing from there, which is where i found the marked crossing point, took a bearing and hey presto found the control straight away! Good solid run from then on! Day 2 = Fail (C; 44:27/ G: 47:34/ S: 57:05/ B: 76:06) (5.1km 230m) (215)

Event: JK 2012
1 PM

Orienteering race (Livingston Almondvale) 23:38 [4] **** 4.42 km (5:21 / km) +36m 5:08 / km
spiked:22/26c shoes: Inov Mudroc 290

Arrived in good time for a warm up on the park, and was a little worried by how few people were wearing vests but nevertheless i started ready and rearing to go! Wasn't going at 100% as i didn't particularly want to run headlong into someone coming round the corner! fist mistake at #5 when i wasn't sure upon the best route there, in the end i ran across the oob road along with many others! Then the biggy, leg 10-11, i ventured via 14 and 15 ruining my entire run by wasting 2mins. This was cause because the connector lines from 9-10 and 14-15 were in a very similar plane and looked like they connected up. Day 1 = Fail (Gold = 21:36 Silver = 25:56, 2.7km 30m)

Cycling 2:07:22 [3] 27.77 km (13.1 kph) +370m

Quite a long and slow cycle with Richard, went along the Weald Way from Fordcome to Southborough common, crossing loads of styles on the bike which was really really tiresome :L feeling good for the JK with my cough finally gone! (Bidborough, Tonbridge, Hildenborough, Leigh, Penshurst, Fordcombe, Speldhurst, Bidborough)

This really was the last race before the JK and it was even better than yesterday! :D Almost flawless run as i spike pretty much ever control. Caught up Richard even though he started 8mins ahead :D. Great run and i'm excited about the number of points i'll get. (7.3km 48:52 65m)
