Cycling (Bath loop) 3:14:53 [4] 69.82 km (21.5 kph) +294m
(injured) shoes: Specialized Sirrus Sport

Default thing to do during injury - cycle to Bath.

Strength training has definitely had an impact here! Furthest I have cycled, and other than arse pain from the seat, body feels fine.

Knee still hurts.

4th/39, although waay behind Tom and Kit, would have been 5 mins down even with no mistakes!

------

Far more navigationally and physically challenging than the JK...

Annoying miss on 4, was within a few metres but happened not to glance to my left and then went right...60s.could've been avoided by reading the features on the edge of the circle better.
Same issue on number 5, didn't see the crags on the edge of the circle, another 60s.
Very lucky on 8.
Climbed too steeply on 11, ended up at crossing point way too high but didn't realise until came out at the very top of the hill; then very steep to climb down!3 mins lost I reckon.should've seen that the better AP was from below and went for the lowest crossing point.
Tried to contour on 15 and was going pretty well but was slightly too high and then distracted by ground shapes even higher.should've seen these on the map rather than assuming the map didn't include them - 60s.

So lost at least 6 mins which is more than at the entire JK! Disappointing, but it was definitely tricky today.

My knee was ok most of the way around but hurting a lot at the finish. Going to have to skip Offa's Orror and decide what to do about GL3D :( :(

Pump #40

Gym Cardio 20:00 [3]
(injured)

15mins vario, 5mins crossover.
My knee is starting to feel pretty normal so will probably have a go at the NGOC on Saturday; I think Cribyn might be a bit much unfortunately if I want to attempt Offa's Orror on Sunday(which I do, because the cake is epic).

Orienteering - Forest race (JK Relay Pippingford ) 40:41 [5] 7.33 km (5:33 / km) +225m 4:49 / km
ahr:143 max:169 (injured) shoes: X-Talon 190 (blue)

4th on M120+

Doing well until #4; then annoying error. Good that I had the confidence to veer away from the pack, but bad that I hadn't been keeping close enough contact and didn't really know where to veer to. Relocated quite fast but was 150m away from the control by that point (2mins).

(30s) on 17 but I thought the contour mapping here was pretty poor; the ground looked nothing like what I was expecting. This was weird because I usually like Dave Peel's contour mapping. Another (30s) on 19 caused by following the line back to 15 and so overshooting a bit before realising.

Otherwise good, but the mistakes early on meant the pack of JK Trophy teams disappeared and I was on my own for most of it. Very impressive runs from Richard Cottle and Matthew Owen for the 4th place overall; luckily we were more than 3 mins down so I don't feel too guilty...

Nice area though, and a good JK in general; especially navigationally for me. Shame about the injury; not slowing me down but still minorly painful every step.
