Shamrock O-Ringen, Day 1, Cobdubh South, M21E, 6.2km, 190m, 16 controls.

Full from a late lunch so started very slowly, not a bad thing as the mist was down and the map was somewhat over simplified. Deliberately went high for 2, 3 and 4 to be on the safe side, things were going well and lunch had digested a bit so decided to push on a bit... Not such a goof idea on the first downhill leg, promptly lost 2 minutes!

Pulled myself together and was much better to the finish (the mist cleared at #7), though I wasn't reading ahead very well. Pleased to be in the lead but disappointed with the mistake - though much bigger ones were made by others. Overall a very enjoyable course and the mountain was in excellent condition with short grass and was surprisingly dry.

Only Caitlin was interested from MDC in a ride this evening, so set out with her wanting an easy cycle as my legs were pretty tired. She chose a less than easy route which started with a climb up Caerphilly Mtn! Then Rudry Mtn! Undulating after that and a nice route, though I found the hills hard work (she has lower gearing than me and seemed to finding them much easier!). Great to be out and very enjoyable.

MDC run around the 'alternative waterfalls' from somewhere at the very back of the Rhondda. Most excellent evening for running and really enjoyed this, despite my legs being well murdered from yesterday and the weekend. Small crowd this evening and Ake, Rcro and I headed out on out own after the first climb. Bargain food and drinks (with excellent chips) after.

Fairfield Horseshoe, with Chris and Matt (MDC) and Brendan Bolland. Nice and muggy in the valley which unfortunately turned into mist as soon as we got towards the top of the ridge line. The climb was great, not too steep but it just went on and on for almost an hour, likewise the decent which for the most part was lovely and soft running. Feeling tired but great to be out in the hills for a long run - shame we couldn't see anything for most of it.

Scottish relays, Inverawe, Open, 2nd leg, 5.7km, 280m, 24 controls.

In the first team with Steve F and Daniel S, in the middle as I needed a to leave quickly and Skyhigh was needing to go even sooner. The area made a much better course than I was expecting and was also quite a bit rougher, but I enjoyed that (not so much the big hills).

Technically sound (really only one 10 second miss) but legs didn't have much in them today. We finished third Scottish/British team (close to second) which wasn't too bad considering the age demographic of our team!
