BOK training run from Chipping Sodbury - lots of gates and stiles

Nice steady run with Ifor and Tereza - felt ok apart from tight hamstrings

Sunday Mar 26 #

Orienteering 1:20:24 [3] 12.04 km (6:41 / km) +321m 5:54 / km

Midland Champs - Bentley

Legs were shot after yesterday and right hamstring felt very sore jogging to start (was probably the sitting, waiting for the food for so long at the restaurant last night - as glues felt dreadful then and could have done with some stretching and rolling), so knew it wasn't going to be a good day.

Went right out of 3 which was a big mistake as ended in some awful brambles - 1 min

Slightly oveshot 7 - 30 seconds

Ended up on wrong path out of 7 and wrong side of pond and then slow into control - 45 secs

10 - ok to circle then case of seek the knoll as it was disguised as a pile of bracken, just like all the other piles of bracken nearby - 30 seconds

11 - drifted left half way to control - 30 secs

13 - stupid control site - missed it and was stood in what I thought was clearing and didn't see control - then carried on a bit further and hit path, came back, still didn't see control and was cursing and swearing when someone else arrived, also stood still for a few seconds, until he spotted control about 5m away!! - 1 min

14 - didn't really notice gap in OOB across field until too late - think this was to catch you out - also I bet the course was not measured as per BO Rule 2.12 (here or at the lake!) - 45 secs

Otherwise just felt I was jogging (heart rate lower than normal for race) - but most of the woods were lovely and runnable

Saturday Mar 25 #

Orienteering race 46:53 [3] 9.65 km (4:52 / km) +108m 4:36 / km

Urban Orienteering - Rugby

Good course, had to keep in contact at all times.

Big mistake on no.1 where ran straight on instead of right.... probably ran an extra 500m or so... So 2 mins lost at least

Misread map at 11 and went into wrong housing -30 secs

13 - silly.. let the fact that mapping of fence and churchyard and trees was odd and ended up running all the way around the church - 1 min

21 - ran right passed gap - 15 secs

26 - missed gap between building and wall and did not realize it was even there until Duncan H pointed it out after -: I actually checked with magnifier as wasn't sure and convinced my selfvthere was no gap - 30 secs

Map on hospital could have been better at 1:4000 or at least gaps exaggerated

6 mins behind Martin Ward and Ant Squire... lack if fitness also showed
