11 AM

Running warm up/down 8:30 [3] 1.0 mi (8:30 / mi)

Not this first time there has been no designated warm up area at a major event
Ran out the way we drove in but clear I shouldn't go past start, so laps of the car park it was, and I was far from the only one
Wouldn't pass the risk assessment I think
Why is this overlooked so often?

Urban Orienteering 14:10 [5] 2.1 mi (6:45 / mi)

One mistake but a very costly, and silly, one

Otherwise superb, would have been through comfortably, albeit in the weakest heat it seems

But the elite guys don't make mistakes
12 PM

Running warm up/down 17:00 [3] 2.0 mi (8:30 / mi)

Warm down, then back up. Car park tedium.
2 PM

Urban Orienteering race 13:19 [5] 1.8 mi (7:24 / mi)

B final, 11th

A lot of fastest splits (11)

and a few mistakes

#7 - exited and expected to see control, so ran to 1st control I saw, which was closer to 2 than 7

#10 - hesitated as wasn't sure if could cross ditch, so stopped to check. then tiptoed over it

#21 - wrong side of wall, tried desprately to figure out on way but failed

#26 - punched control on first tree out of woods. Luckily, somehow, something told me this wasn't right and checked control number, continued to correct one

Mistakes are getting fewer I guess is the good news, bad news is I still make big ones at times
3 PM

Urban Orienteering 10:30 [2] 0.9 mi (11:40 / mi)

Exploring where I went wrong, the closed bridge, and the unmapped tunnel with Richard

Running 31:30 [3] 4.0 mi (7:53 / mi)

Round Highroyds, easy run, set out with Charlotte so kept looping back so she didn't get lost.
Threw in 8 x strides on the cricket pitch to liven things up/get set for the weekend.

Running 1:26:00 [3] 11.5 mi (7:29 / mi) +90m 7:18 / mi

Fartlek not started yet, but run from the club with Mike B, Deak, Tesfae, Jack and Susan for a bit.
Relieved to see (except for Susan) no one is in decent shape at present.
Went through a very bad patch around the hour on the golf course but last 15 felt a lot better.
