Score Orienteering (Street-O) 59:12 [4] * 11.79 km (5:01 / km)
slept:6.5 shoes: Nike Lunar +2s

SLOW Clerkenwell Street-O. Cool, crisp evening. The map stretched from the Thames at Blackfriars, to the start of Liverpool Road in Angel, and included the Barbican and most of the western half of the City of London urban map - so, being very familiar with the layout, I concentrated on that. Took a gamble near the end and went up to Percy Circus from Mount Pleasant to get a 30-pointer just before the end - that, + a 20 pointer on the way back, gave me an edge and meant I finished third out of just under 90 runners, my best Street-O result for ages. I got one answer marked wrong (a parallel error) which was due to building work blocking a marked street - I assumed the street wasn't shown on the map, but it was.

Post-race pub (The Bowler) was very nice, even if it was >£10 for two pints of lager, especially as they gave us a free drink to say sorry for the food (which was excellent) taking so long to arrive.

Orienteering (Regional Event) 1:36:01 [4] **** 15.1 km (6:22 / km) +390m 5:38 / km
30c slept:5.5 shoes: Adidas Swoop 1s

SN Trophy at Frith/Old Windmill Hills. Running Black - quoted distance 11.9km. Forgot compass, so found the course a challenge in this tricky, technical area (army area - maze of paths, many curved!) although the latter half of the course was more straightforward, so picked up speed here. Poor route to No. 1 (set off too fast, not following map closely enough considering no compass) and struggled to find No. 3 while in the circle. Also big (90 degree) mistake to No. 10, again would have not happened if I had had a compass! Finally, a few too many bingo controls for my liking - hidden in small deep pits, which themselves were often well away from other features. But, pleasant day (blue sky, cold, damp on ground), nice course, great area, just about justified the exorbitant EOD fee (£14).

Extra bonus is I (narrowly) beat HWW.
Lots of blisters from running in new shoes.
4 PM

Cycling (From Station) 35:30 [2] 12.26 km (2:54 / km)

Tired.
