Morning waddle. Quads even more wrecked!
2 PM

Orienteering - hard race 17:00 [4]

Sprint Relay. Managed to drop my map in the middle of the run-out and i think it was at least partly the stress of trying to retrieve it in the stampede that meant i started on the back foot (and having lost some ground) and the performance completely collapsed. Having taken so much out in the past two days i was just too tired to deal with it all! Also in great pain especially on the downhills. None of us had the best day ever i think but its hard to be too sad in such a nice place.

Running - easy warm up/down 30:00 [2]

Orienteering - hard race 38:00 [4]
shoes: Inov-8 XTalon 212 April 2017

World Cup middle, Grindelwald. I think the run was about the same amount of okay as yesterday, nothing too bad but not race of the century either. 4-5 smaller mistakes. Tried to run without too much risk, especially on the steep decents! Caught starter before me but unfortunately for my race it was a straight through and no running together.

10th position... i think i'm beyond the stage where "just" a top ten is something i would be properly happy with, but also after such low orienteering confidence and no individual results to speak of for so long, its great to be doing something a bit more useful again so maybe i should let myself off with this weekend!

shoes: Inov-8 XTalon 212 April 2017

World Cup long above Grindelwald. Only one real miss (#5) somewhere round 90s maybe? Otherwise just some questionable routes. Really happy with how i applied myself on what was a lonely run with altitude struggles, kept fighting and the result like the run was not special but quite alright, good to be back inside top 15 again. My best long distance outside a championship (at first i thought second best ever but forgot about Portugal EOC and Finland woc!)... hopefully helping me on my way back up the rankings, which was the aim today.

Running - easy 31:00 [2]

walked down out of the embargo (also good sprint relay snooping) then went for a quite steep morning jog up onto the foot of the Eiger. took the road for some of the way back down cos it was less steep, could feel the life expectancy of my knees decreasing on the descent. just as the sun was coming up, amazing.
12 PM

Orienteering - easy 45:00 [2]
shoes: Inov-8 XTalon 212 April 2017

Model area, a bit on either map scale. Shan't really say much more, it'll just be banging on about how much i love the mountains.
