12 PM

Running warm up/down 8:00 [1] 1.2 km (6:40 / km)
slept:9.0 shoes: Oasics, Gel-Numbus Shoes

Sprint/Urban Orienteering race (York City Race) 14:15 [4] *** 3.1 km (4:36 / km) +16m 4:29 / km
spiked:9/13c shoes: Oasics, Gel-Numbus Shoes

It was good fun, the course was short and restricted but well planned, so i lost time because I was slacking in navigation.

3- didn't look where it was lost 3s
4- overshot the alley 3s
5- the market place wasn't mapped ?s
8- wrong route choice + didn't spot the alley 8s
9- didn't read the control descriptions so went on the wrong side of the fence then missed the alley again 33s

Total- 47s round to 50s not good but OK

I was running at near fastest pace all round which was quite easy, but you had to be very sharp to avoid all the people it was PACKED and a big disadvantage to be a later starter because of all the crowds mid-day. Didn't look at my control descriptions after I entered the busy part because there wasn't room with the pace, people, course and tiny alleys. Normal GPS
8 PM

Gym/Conditioning 20:00 [2]

Just the normal, haven't done the 'injury prevention' exercises for a while so did them too

10 AM

Running warm up/down 10:00 [2] 1.0 km (10:00 / km)
slept:10.0 shoes: Adidas Swoops 2 (Green)

With the scots as well but they only did 200m or so

Orienteering race (Orange =L) 14:49 [5] *** 2.7 km (5:29 / km) +85m 4:44 / km
spiked:10/11c shoes: Adidas Swoops 2 (Green)

Refreshing course. Caught INT and ESOC 50m to the 1st control but messed up the second 30s and they followed. Led the rest apart from one hill and the last control where they both took me. But i took craig back on the run-in at pace. We came second because all of INT applied the tactic follow the leaders then take them on the run in cus they were good at cross-country.

3 PM

Running warm up/down 10:00 [2] 1.79 km (5:35 / km) +37m 5:04 / km
shoes: Adidas Swoops 2 (Green)

Orienteering race (Scottish Champs) 56:58 [3] *** 7.09 km (8:02 / km) +157m 7:14 / km
spiked:13/20c slept:6.0 shoes: Adidas Swoops 2 (Green)

Very bad run, really unfit and loads of mistakes, i used nearly no techniques... The map was also annoying because although it had 'minor alterations' in 2010 it was last fully re-done in 1999.. so yeah. Also It made you have to use compass bearings, which i didn't.

1- hesitant, felt the fatigue already 10s
3- 1min, there were lots of other people and I kept hearing beeps so got very distracted and didn't go far enough twice. Extremely hesitant
4- 1min, very badly executed leg, i knew i was drifting off but was tired so didn't do anything about it (??!!) then walked the 'hill'
6- ... 3 whole minutes. Mainly due to the map. It looked simple, go up through the green to the white and run down it for 100m except the green and white had merged over the years so i got stuck in some other green wondering where the white was, went back and forth a bit then all the way to the top of the hill to relocate and planned to go down to hit the white but i paced it and contoured the green and found my boulder....
(zac overtook me somewhere here- without mistakes i would have been leading by 1minute)
10- Long leg, small mistake 25s overshot a 'distinct' ride
12- Again i was navigating by vegetation because i didnt want to use my compass and the veg was wrong 25s
13- Didnt aim off, was too high but went higher before coming back to a very under-rated depression. Very hesitant 1min

Total 7min 20s!!!! no techniques, unfit, not bothering with navigation

It was the 'End of school' today, lots of shirt signing a great PE lesson and no learning/revising.. it was fun but also sad.
