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.

RICE RICE RICE RICE but mostly, GUTTED.

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.
