Orienteering race (Terrain Event) 1:00:10 [4] *** 8.74 km (6:53 / km) +157m 6:19 / km
24c shoes: Adidas Adistar Salvations

Rowney Warren. Not as good an area as I thought it would be, particularly as the most interesting section was fenced off and OOB due to mountain bikers. Had a good run though, the only big mistake right at the end where I took a very poor route to the final control, going almost via the finish, and losing 40-50 seconds. Just beat Ian C and Jon M, got narrowly beaten by Helen. It was the JOK Championships and it looked for a moment that I had just lost out - however Roger and Jon Em were both four minutes faster, in the end. Annoying, but hope I get some good ranking points at least.

Actual distance run was 10.5km.
1 PM

Cycling long (From Event) 5:34:53 [2] 80.55 km (4:09 / km)

Cycling from Rowney Warren to St John's Wood in London, via Wheathampsted and Colney Heath, with Helen. Nasty headwind the entire way (occasionally a cross-wind.) It died down later, but then returned near the end as a strong cross-wind. The last section, down Edgware Road, was definitely a mistake - despite what OSM said, there is no cycle path and also it's a really horrible road! London in general was not particularly nice, especially as it was getting dark. In retrospect we probably should have got a train back from Mill Hill or St Albans. The little roads north of Wheathampsted were very pleasant though. Only one big stop (not timed) plus lots of little ones.

Loads of energy, pleased with my cycle, particularly as it was on an empty stomach - d'oh.
7 PM

Cycling (Back Home) 34:09 [3] 11.46 km (2:59 / km)

From St John's Wood to home, via City Road. Traffic was pretty bad, especially on Euston Road - not nice at all.

From Paddington.
1 PM

Orienteering race (City Race) 52:13 [4] *** 7.6 km (6:52 / km)
shoes: Adidas Adistar Salvations

Cambridge City Race. Just 10 seconds behind Matthias and around 30 seconds behind Brooner. And beat Dan, Scott, Ian and various others. Finished 14th of 70, winner was 48:32 - not far away! No real mistakes, a few wobbles and pauses to spot good routes.

Actual distance run was 11.3km.

Enjoyed running into King's College and through Clare College in particular. It's great that we can get access to such places for orienteering and it's a real shame that some competitors go too fast through them, or across OOB lawns, and potentially cause problems for future access.
3 PM

On the Water (Punting) 25:00 [2] 1.0 km (25:00 / km)

In Cambridge! Along the Backs. Absolutely lovely. Lots of nice bridges to duck under. Had two shifts of about 10-15 minutes each. Arms sore now.
5 PM


I appear to have been elected JOK President. No idea what happens now...
