Running warm up/down 30:00 [1] 3.0 km (10:00 / km)

Huge warm up and lots of drills and stuff as it was chilly and they kept us waiting a bit.

Running race (1500) 5:00 [5] 1.5 km (3:20 / km)

Welsh inter regional championships. Planned to tuck in with leaders for first few laps as I knew i would get dropped. Didn't work out as a couple of guys took the pace really quickly at the begining then dropped off after 800. Was aiming to do under 4 15 but not too dissapointed with it. 4.17

Strength and Conditioning 10:00 [2]

Gunna keep doing core strength little and often now to make sure it doesn't become a weakness

Orienteering race 30:00 [3] *** 4.5 km (6:40 / km) +250m 5:13 / km

Back to good ole welsh orienteering, a foggy summer league on big mountain side ogof fynnyn ddu. Not too difficult an area but fog cut down visibility enough to make it tougher. Course was alot of path routes but still fun. Had to make sure execution in circle was good and it was. Couple of small misses which is why I've said I didn't spike them all, but nothing huge atall.

Running race (Fell Race) 45:00 [4] 10.0 km (4:30 / km) +445m 3:41 / km

Rhod asked if I wanted a fell race so me and Matt went up to Machen to do it. 2nd out of field. 2nd to the top of the first short climb. 2nd to bottom of 2nd climb. Felt tired up the long steep climb that was the bulk of the course but managed to keep vaguely steady. Got passed by 2 about halfway up and then another 2 after it levelled off and they got away from me on the kick up to the summit. 6th to top and caught one place on the way down to finish 5th. Happy I could deal with the hills aswell as I did. Rhod ran away and won in 39. Matt came through in about 48 so good considering he doesnt run much anymore. 43.15

Orienteering 40:00 [3] 8.0 km (5:00 / km)

Long legs practise. Used GPS. Two major route choice legs and some slope O so good practise for the long next year. Of the two route choices I had a good route into the first but messed up the early part of the leg by climbing nearly 80m more than others using a different path to get to the same attack into the control. Only lost a minute as I ran well on the high path and hit the control. Second route was good and hit the control pretty well. Slope o was comfortable.

Orienteering 30:00 [4] 5.0 km (6:00 / km)

Middle qualifier practise, Kept steady at the begining but mixed up some lines and started to go to 6 instead of 4, got myself back on track untill I missed 7. Was too low and ran through the re entrant missing the control. Then sped up and technique went a bit to pot but regained control later in the course to have a solid finish. 3rd behind Hector and Matt.

Running warm up/down 25:00 [1] 4.0 km (6:15 / km)

Warm up and down for morning and afternoon.

Orienteering 32:00 [4] 5.0 km (6:24 / km)

Two sprint trainings in the morning and two races in the afternoon. Was 4th junior in first race as I amended my route choice to avoid a field that i could have gone through but thought looked dodgy. Probably would go through on a competition. 2nd race I was 4th again, Missed control 2 as it was in the wrong place and never punched it then thought bout this for too long and it put me off, wouldnt have been fast enough to beat podge anyway but ohwells.
