Running tempo 30:00 
First starter at 09:02 on VHI individual, so up early and trying to kid my body it was later. Good long w-u with J.
Orienteering race 58:00 
VHI Individual at Inshriach. First out in the forest and the plan was to be first back too! First few controls through the checker-board were easy enough as long as you kept your eye on the map carefully to count the blocks. Chose to go round the semi-open area on the long leg and got a nice line joining some bits of path, ridge etc. Then into the tricky stuff and managed to keep really good map contact. Spiked them all the way through to no 10, where I somehow dropped into the wrong depression (having done a bit of simplification for the first time). Had a wee panic then started to head towards the track to relocate, before working things out and getting the right spot - lost ~2.5' there. Was a bit scrappy with my route back across the open and then messed up no 11 too - just couldn't work out the vague contours. Probably another 1.5' gone here. OK from there to finish on a few short legs.
Really happy with everything up to no 10, just a shame I couldn't hold it together for the whole course. Good enough for a comfortable win anyhow.
Running warm up/down 15:00 
Pre VHI relays
Orienteering race 40:00 
VHI relays Balliefurth. 3rd (long) leg in a W-M-W team with GB and BS. Headed out ~40s behind GK in 6th place. Caught GK at no 1 then proceeded to try and navigate to 14... realised fairly quickly and rejoined GK. Tried to work together but she ran away from me on the long leg to 3. Then I got pinged backwards by a juniper bush and fell over. Did my own thing once I picked myself up and all went quite clean. Realised as I approached the spectator control that 2 English teams were just ahead, but only 1km to go. Passed PA somewhere without seeing her and was catching LW but ran out of course. A bit disappointed by that, but overall happy with my race.
Running 10:00 
Barely worth logging, but hanging a few markers in Castle Woods for ASC for the record. Retrieved a mini-marker we had used on the 28th April - oops.
Orienteering 48:00  4.5 km (10:40 / km) +130m 9:19 / km
WeTT at Slewdrum end of SGs. Did my own thing and felt quite on top of this tonight, although still made a couple of mistakes. GPS trace seems to have lost the satellites for most of my first loop - I guess that just about sums up deepest darkest Slewdrum, but it's a great technical area. Legs feeling much better too.
Running warm up/down 22:00 
Down to railway and back after intervals
Running intervals 18:00 
6x2'+1' on the railway. Feeling quite tired and need to get good recovery before the w/e, so kept it a short session.
Running 30:00

Running 25:00
