Usual Malverns (walk with Abi)

Is there any decent weekend orienteering in July (in England)?

Cyclocross race (Blists Hill Cyclocross) 53:00 [3]

Nick Jeggo's / Newport CC's Queen Victoria cyclocross, 2 mins down the road from me. The course was dry but was the only one who felt it was okay running road tyres. There were some rocks (where a lot of people punctured) but if you were careful it was fine, and I made it to the top of the toughest riding climb a good number of times though the loose ground worked against me there. Did alright finishing top 10 I think (tbc)/~60. Could have done more training, been round the course beforehand, had higher volume tyres so I could be more aggressive, started nearer the front, worn gloves to prevent hideous blisters. But most of it just fitness and not going hard enough on the flats while thinking everything else is a rest. Was about 35s per 5 1\2 minute lap (for the leader) behind the leader.

Cycle (Shrewsbury to Pontesbury) 30:00 [3] 12.7 km (2:22 / km)

Fell Race (Pontesbury) 20:15 [3] 4.8 km (4:13 / km) +354m 3:05 / km

1st. Was told Tim Davies was running (and expect to come 2nd by Adrian) but didn't know who he was so didn't take it on at the start, just followed Paul Jones then Tim up the hill but was fairly comfortable and I drew away near the top of the woods and up to the very top. Chillaxed descent, climb, and descent until the fields/road at the end where Paul was definitely closer than he was on the second climb. Anyway had enough gap but perhaps should have tried harder!

Running warm up/down 5:00 [3]

Cycle (To Shifnal) 17:00 [3]

Cycle (Shifnal to the Wrekin) 35:00 [3]

To pick up an orienteering map but it wasn't even waterproof grrr.

Cycle (Wrekin to Oakengates trac) 20:00 [3]

Running intervals (Telford AC) 15:00 [4] 4.8 km (3:07 / km)

8*600m in two sets of four with a little jog in between. Not sure how but actually turned out a decent session. Was steady to start but did pick up to good speed which was pleasing. Just need to keep it, build on and sustain until Scotland. Didn't take a watch so that I wouldn't get demoralised. Looking forward to tomorrow now.

Running warm up/down 10:00 [3]

Cycle (Oakengates to home) 25:00 [3]

Somehow got over taken by a steady cycling family of three between the track and the centre and had to overtake them again near the station. Did stop to look at the view for a little while but that was pretty brief I thought. They must know some other routes.

Orienteering (Brindley) 55:00 [3]

On a Walton Chasers' Blue course. There were less brambles than I was expecting but still too many spidery ones for me to get away with forgetting to put socks in my bag. Nice rolling orienteering. Undergrowth and hard to find pits made things a bit slower. Felt good to be running and think I could put up a fight with any challengers at Wednesday's fell race to secure the series. Cannock Chase is great.

Mountain Biking 40:00 [3]

Trying the Halesfield jumps
