Putting our navigation skills to the test with a course on Long Valley South around Caesar's Camp. Using a 1:25 OS map but with control descriptions such as pits which obviously aren't marked on an OS map... One control in the wrong place (in a re-entrant not on the spur) and controls hidden in bushes with no flags added to the challenge. Was nice to be out and stretch the legs though and discovered running in boots up sandy slopes is quite hard work.
More squats and deadlifts to max effort and squat based circuits. I am getting better at pressups. Was quite hard actually. Have a cold because I have had the amount of sleep in the last 2 weeks I would usually get in 1.
Signed up to orienteering as my sport for this term because no other sports appealed. Was keen to try rowing but that wasn't an option. Thought we might get to go to the MLS Ash South event but instead we watched a powerpoint presentation on what orienteering is and then went for a jaunt in the grounds. Was very pleasant being out and about rather than being in stuffy lecture theatres.
