Orienteering race (Kenfig Burrow, SBOC) 39:39 [3] 4.7 km (8:26 / km)

Not had any decent orienteering for while so we made the trip out to some welsh sand dunes.

Should have taken the path to 1 instead of an easier-to-read route. Was a bit surprised at the heavy running underfoot. With large parts of the area being submerged underwater I struggled towards 2 before finding a distictive looking ridge and got into normal 'sand dune navigation' mode which I managed to keep for the rest of the course. 3 required a big flood-induced detour but found it okay. Little hesitent in the circle to 4, 5 was fine but almost overshot 6 by not concentrating on the ground I'd covered. Took the lengthy round route to 7 but it didn't feel quick. 8 was easy, 9 looked obvious from 8 but wasn't so confident in the map come the control. 10, 11, 12 okay.

Not too bad really. Would have liked a bit more in the runnable northern part but felt the flooding added a good challenge. +21s on Marcus Pinker.

UBOC trip to the beach after for a swim.

Borrowed a bike and road down. Dave wasn't there so we just did the usual squat/bridge/plank/press-up routine.

Running (UBOC Monday Night Run) 50:00 [3] 7.0 km (7:09 / km) +220m 6:10 / km

WT, Redland Road, Freemantle Square (happened upon a firework display which was cool but almost got hit by falling stakes on the exit), along and round Dove Street, Marlborough St, up Marlborough Hill (thanks Charlotte), St Micheal's Church, up to the top of Brandon Hill, Constitution Hill, Caledonia Place, Observatory. Disappointing view of fireworks so went to the pub pretty quick.
