Scottish Relays at Drumlanrig. Wasn't sure I was going to be able to get out today but I risked it, and am glad I did because I really enjoyed my course. Out on third leg, but still a few people about, which adds to the fun. Jogged along slowly, avoiding the tough terrain and my back didn't enjoy the downhills, but I think that I got away with it

Scottish Champs at Dalbeattie, Light Green course. My head was full of WiFi shenanigans and I completely failed to begin orienteering until at least number 4. Visited 2 before 1! Was scrappy and making silly mistakes the whole way; I should have done this 10 minutes faster. My back was OK, although I found the rough open quite challenging. Tough area, altogether - definitely one of those areas where some loved it but many didn't, and there were lots of DNFs. Good effort from a small club like SOLWAY to put it all on! Chuffed that the WiFi kit also seemed to work well.

My back has been murdering me since Tuesday, and I've not had the chance to get out for much, so, by lunchtime today after another morning hunched over the PC I had to get out for at least a stroll. Such a lovely day, buoyed by that all-too-rare (in Scotland) smell of hot pine trees, that really is the smell of summer.
Started the day with a good 6km walk in Ireland, then off to the airport, flew back to Scotland, and straight on-site to spend a couple of hours standing still in a fab. On the whole, my back doesn't like me very much this evening.
