Woke up with a massively sore throat and a headache. Didn't feel like going cycling like I planned, so just stayed in and did my dissertation :(

Orienteering race 1:13:00 [4] 9.1 km (8:01 / km) +245m 7:04 / km

Tinto Night Event - Carmichael Estate

Thought I was going to be miles behind as I felt very slow (aka walked) up the hills, but actually did much better than I hoped because I didn't have any big errors. Need to work on manning up and running hard all the time, as I only ever seemed to push myself when I was with other people.

1 - Came off my bearing and into the re-entrant too low down, lost about 20secs
2 - Easy
3 - Wanted to go along the power lines but when I got there they were so overgrown with nettles, so I went back to the path, lost 1min
4 - The ride had power lines in it but they weren't mapped so I had a bit of a faff thinking I was somehow in the wrong place, 15secs
5 - Confident
6 - Fell and cut my knee really badly in the willow :( Clumsy as always...
7/8/9/10 - Died up the hills and lost the people who had overtaken me, got them all spot on though. Visualised the contours like the little hill at 9 and the ditch filled re-entrant at 10
11 - Came a bit lower than I intended to and ended up at the little fence, so I just contoured into it. Caught the group back up here so I must have been lucky to find it.
12 - Unnecessary crossing of fences
13 - Fast downhill :)
14 - Got a bit confused by the double deerfence, wasn't very well mapped

So good navigation, not so good fitness! (but after only 5 weeks back training I think that's okay)

Running 44:00 [2] 7.0 km (6:17 / km)

Had a bit of a cough this morning so just went for an easy jog. Saw some people have been doing drills/strides so I did 10 mins of them on the way back. Feel better for getting out and away from work.

Bike 1:24:00 [1]

Awesome morning cycle through the woods and ings. Really misty and atmospheric.


Entered the Chevin Chase as my goal to keep me motivated for training now the weather is getting cold. Frustrating that I want to run more than I can, but staying healthy & on top of my shins is more important.
