Orienteering race 34:29 [4] 4.4 km (7:50 / km) +85m 7:09 / km
ahr:185 max:193 (injured)

Distance ran: 5.87 km

Woke up with some discomfort in left hip and decided not to run this last event of the Park Race Series. Saw on the event website that British Orienteering ranking points were available and changed my mind (despite not knowing what British Orienteering ranking points are). Turns out you need to be registered with BOF to gain points so as of this evening I am a member of SLOW.

Enjoyed the race. I felt like I knew where I was on the map between controls more than in previous races. Ran past #12 but didn't lose as much time as I did on #17 where I left the road too early and had to go forward and then back through nettles. I should have pushed harder on the long stretch to #23; #24-F was a series of short, zigzagging legs that needed a bit more concentration.

Right knee pain post-race (see injury report).

As for the series as a whole I am disappointed to have only managed to take part in 4 races but feel I have improved in both fitness and in using the map. %Δ from race winner in chronological order: 61%, 53%, 55%, 44%.

1 PM

Cycling (road) 44:10 [3] 17.13 km (2:35 / km) +64m 2:32 / km
ahr:167 max:183

To Hammersmith Hospital to see if commuting by bike will be viable in October. Elapsed time of 49:23 quite a bit faster than the 75 mins TFL predicts using public transport so this looks like a good option, even when considering heavier traffic in rush hour. Slow through Wembley.
2 PM

Cycling (road) 43:00 [3] 16.83 km (2:33 / km) +99m 2:29 / km
ahr:164 max:180

Back from Hammersmith Hospital. Elapsed time 45:02.

New route out to Chorleywood and back via Chalfont St Giles, Harefield and Ruislip. Really enjoyed this.

Swimming (sea) 10:00 [2]

Quick dip in Bournemouth.
6 PM

Cycling (road) 1:01:00 [4] 22.0 km (2:46 / km) +169m 2:40 / km
ahr:173 max:184

Got a GPS/HR monitor. Both working well but I am still to figure out how to use it properly. It seems the 'climb' I have been putting for rides over the last few months from runningmap has been wrong. Plan on finding out max HR in the next few days.
