Back in whitby... Bit short of sleep but otherwise fine, and new trainers after wearing the other ones so thin was definitely shoe doping. Felt like i was running on springs. Coast path, back through town.

From top of maybeck, some fartlek up to the road by Lilla and across the terrain on the way back, but all quite loose when ive frontloaded the week. Much better training day than feared!

(rest day)

Today's challenge is trying to transform from post-flight scruffy into something near enough fit for a wedding on the East coast mainline

Orienteering - hard race 1:15:00 [4]
shoes: Inov-8 O Roc 280 April 2018

Woke up, packed up, found that i was starting a bit later than expected, no disaster but i had to be on a bus from stockholm c by 18.30. Bit tight but okay if i ran well. Eight minute lead though so some orienteering cushion. Started course, off line to 1 and relocated wrongly, many minutes but no panic. Lost more seconds. Plain wrong direction to 5. Train caught me, ohhhhhhh shit. Running with Lisa R, we both made a complete mess of 7. Kept being messy, we overtook Fredrika about 4 times. Three controls left, long leg, Lisa went for a longsprint and i was too tired to follow. Tried to keep track, lost sight of her a couple of hundred metres before the control. A bit too high, panicked, wondered if second spot was safe... But looked like it matched just below and some old guys were standing looking confused, so knew there was a kite there.. Into the finish and turned out Lisa had spooned it worse and i won overall anyway. Haaa sums up the trip, most undeserved wins ive ever had! 2 minute laugh about our misses, washed face in a lake, got in the car, drove 6hrs to Stockholm without stopping, made my bus by 2 mins. :-)

Orienteering - medium 38:00 [3]
shoes: Inov-8 O Roc 280 April 2018

Never got moving enough to log as a normal race but technically, one of the top very few most intense orienteering experiences so far. Middle distance on Idre's infamous "Bermuda triangle" up near NipfjÀllet. Expecting to lose a bit of time but would have liked better. Twice faffing about a few metres from the control second-guessing myself (#2, #8), once choosing a bad line by misjudging which features would be best to use (#4) and two with poor direction (#6, #9), 9 especially costing quite a bit. Difficult getting a balance between being confident enough in what youre doing not to be too easily distracted, and still watching for alarm bells.

Orienteering - hard 1:02:00 [4]
shoes: Inov-8 O Roc 280 April 2018

Idre 3 days, day 1. Long distance. Have heard so much about these forests, and not disappointed! I was very good at getting near the controls okay, just not quite near enough. Managed to sneak past 5 of the 14, luckily relocation was good enough to avoid any epic misses. Cant say i got the best feeling from that though! Too much time lost. Not applying fine navigation v well into the circle... Fortunately for my result, i wasnt the only one having problems.

Not feeling great in the legs, not so much speed, but kept trying to push as best i could.

Easy run and explore from Idre, nice route recommended by the tourism office. Old friend hamstring tendon having a niggle, i think this has been the roof of the glutes/back problem all along this spring.
