Orienteering race 15:23 [3] 2.67 km (5:46 / km) +43m 5:20 / km
(injured) shoes: VJ Integrators

Had "decided" to skip Army O event and go indoor bouldering, for back "issue", but nice day, so couldn't resist army event. Near A303.

Huge mistake. LH Lower calf/ achilles / soleus "twinged" within 30 seconds of starting. twinged again en route to no 2. Surely I'll warm up & be fine. Back troubling me a bit. Surely i'll warm up.

another sharp twinge after no 4.

Approaching no 6, i actually said out loud, "Come on, when are you going to knock this on the head"? 30 seconds later, as I ran up the bank to the control, PING, scream, sit down. 30 minute hobble with a stick back to assembly.

Game over. Morale : if you back's iffy, there will be ramifications down your legs. In my case, they will not be worth the risk. Ever.


Had it been raining, I would not have gone. I'd have gone bouldering. SHIT.

Luckily i was not driving, as that's hard and I walk with my foot out at 45 degrees. Huge gig in two nights' time. Oh fuck.

Spilts - wasn't doing great anyway. Meaningless.
