Cycling 1:42:00 [3] 24.1 mi (4:14 / mi)

Crichton - Caerlaverock.

Loop was heading for about 14 miles, so we tried to extend it, but after 5 miles out to Ruthwell not finding a loop back, and the option then being the A75, we returned the way we came. Should have brought a map along. Still a bit cold, but clear and sunny

Orienteering 41:17 [5] 4.0 mi (10:19 / mi)

SOLWAY SOUL Georgetown Dumfries. Course 2

Any hope they were saving the best terrain for the SOUL quickly disabused on opening the map. A dull housing estate which gave the planner nothing to work with. So just ran (what passes for) flat out for 40 minutes. Running up , so first M60, just the three min behind Karen Parker W60. M65 John Embury lost out on victory in M21/course 1 on the run-in. It was that sort of event, for urban diehards who haven't learnt our lesson.

Orienteering 32:00 [3] 4.0 mi (8:00 / mi)

Scottish Night Champs, SOLWAY.
Rather bizarre event, urban loop in Troqueer then two parks, finishing in Crichton. Not exactly Hawes End style brutal Lakes stuff.

Map looked like ot was drawn by a 12 year old, and the course was super easy (read, dull road running). Then at 12 the headlight blew out - this was the selfsame torch that crashed on Claire in BNC. I hadn't taken a backup because, not seeing the grould would be a disaster, but there was a lot of street and stray light, so kept going for a bit picking off controls en route to the finish, where a bin awaited the errant illuminator.

Weird, but the general concept of the event was a good one. Start and finish in a nice bistro, finishing at dinner time, so a nice post-race atmosphere. Crichton is a lovely campus, and Night-O is probably the best use of the area.

Cycling 1:50:00 [3] 24.1 mi (4:34 / mi)

Loop around Tinto with jane. Cold.


Curiously, they had a night-O here just two months ago. I know its not a serious event, but it seems a bit much when its meant to be a Championship.
