Running 58:00 intensity: (28:00 @2) + (15:00 @3) + (15:00 @4) 13.0 km (4:28 / km)

Progression run on roads and trails from Oban. Raining and windy and I was not up for this after a tiring morning getting back from Mull, including cheering Helen B on in the half marathon. Enjoyed it once I got moving, but it took a while to wind it up.

Running 30:00 [3] 6.0 km (5:00 / km)

Took a boat ride to Staffa and got dropped off on Iona. Left Jenny keeping an eye on a big fat seal and took a short run from the beach out to the S tip of the island - all very picturesque.

Running 45:00 [2] 6.0 km (7:30 / km)

Took the boat to Mull and hiked with our backpacks from Fionnphort to Fidden campsite. Had an easy jog with Jen out to Erraid Island (accessible by foot at low tide) and had a dip in a stunning white sand bay on the far side of the island.

On top of a small rocky outcrop as the sun set over the beaches. Amazing.

Orienteering 1:01:46 [5] 11.0 km (5:37 / km)

Scottish 6 Days, day 4. Started first in the chase with a decent gap behind, but wanted to finish with a good run. A hilly course today, and I would be lying if I said I didn't feel it on the climbs, but managed to run more-or-less clean and got beaten by Spongey, who was going very well. Good few days of racing, terrain couldn't be more different to France, but useful to get out and find some flags.

Running warm up/down 15:00 [2] 3.0 km (5:00 / km)

Running 25:00 [2] 5.0 km (5:00 / km)
(rest day)

Enjoying a very pleasant rest day in Oban. Tired after yesterday, but nothing that swimming in the sea, drinking coffee and eating ice cream can't solve. Just had a short jog to the beach to loosen off the legs and back.

Orienteering race 1:36:18 [5] 16.0 km (6:01 / km)

Scottish 6 Days long distance, Creag Mhic. Ran well and made only a handful of hesitation-type mistakes to win with a small margin over Hector. Nice course with a mix of fast runable forest and tough, tussocky moorland. Good to get another classic in before WOC and starting to feel more controlled in the navigation.

Running 10:00 [2] 2.0 km (5:00 / km)

Shortish warm up as I was running late. Too much chatting.

Orienteering 31:05 [5] 6.0 km (5:11 / km)

Scottish 6 days, day 2 Ardnaskie middle distance. Familiar stuff after the selection races last year, but thankfully we avoided the thickets area where I got lost on that occasion. Had a good clean run until the penultimate, a very short leg down the hill, which I couldn't understand. I was lucky with the seconds and won with a margin of 1sec over Spongey and Patrick in joint 2nd.

Running warm up/down 25:00 [2] 5.0 km (5:00 / km)

Orienteering race 56:34 [5] 11.0 km (5:09 / km)

Scottish 6 days, day 1, Ganavan. Felt great running today and really enjoyed opening up the stride over the nice runable fells. Not the most interesting or challenging course, but I was paying far too little attention to the map and made several silly mistakes, one or two of them quite costly. Didn't expect to win, but I guess everyone lost some time today.

Running warm up/down 25:00 [2] 5.0 km (5:00 / km)

Had a dip in the sea after. Nice.

Running 35:00 [2] 7.0 km (5:00 / km)
(rest day)

Jog out along the coast from Oban. Feeling dreadful after the journey up, no idea how I am going to race tomorrow.
