Fell Race (South Mynd Tour) 2:14:39 [3] 23.48 km (5:44 / km) +1176m 4:35 / km

Wanted a long run out and some steeper hills. Put a bit of effort into get a bit of gap at the first checkpoint. Tim and Kristian slowly reeled me in by CP6. The climb to CP8 was clearly the key one and I had thought I had managed my pace and food consumption to get up decently. But clearly hadn't and they got a big gap. I tried catching to CP9 but didn't make much headway and came back in steady from there.

On the railway path from Brampton. Almost got to the A14!

Running warm up/down 10:00 [3] +40m

Fell Race (Wrekin Streak) 19:37 [3] 4.4 km (4:27 / km) +216m 3:35 / km

Was pissing it down all day but it stopped for the race making for nice damp condtions. Just looked down at the start and let people race away as I hadn't done a full warm-up, when I started looking up they weren't actually that far ahead. Moved into about 5th by halfway before telling another junior off for walking on a non-steep bit. Set my sights on Jack and Billy ahead. Pushed on on the first flat to get near-ish, passed Billy on the concrete whilst Jack got a few extra meters. Closed on the next flat and Heaven's Gate and then were side-by-side to the trig. Didn't have it on the way down and finished 2nd in a slow time. Anyway good to be near the front again.

Running warm up/down 10:00 [3]

Running (Haughmond Hill) 41:20 [3] 7.35 km (5:37 / km) +150m 5:06 / km

Nice and gentle

Monday May 6 #

Running warm up/down 10:00 [3]

Orienteering race (Br Relays Middleton Woods) 40:00 [3]

I think a reduced number of M20s compared to the JK meant the start was a bit slower. Nixon, Dane and I messed up 2 a little but we had the massively short gaffle so was very weird being at 4 with no-one in the field behind.

Minced a bit to five then eight was uphill and I was going backwards fast. I then messed up 9 and 11 and raced David Bunn back from there.
