Was at some dodgy casino last night playing poker and seem to have suffered from second hand smoke inhalation. Looks like I'll have to hit the asthma drugs this morning, lucky i submitted my A-TUE to.... myself! Seriously though had a great night especially taking all of Fish's chips off him.

Fun little park and street orienteering, got confused on some sand dune terrain with a depression on top of a hill. First event i have done in a long time where the amount of time you take to mark up your map is included in your race time! Wish they told me before I started mrking up the map and i might have done 32 minutes instead of 34!!

(rest day)

In hindsight I probably got a bit excited last week and did too much, just didn't feel right today so had a rest. The upshot is I will be raring to go for night orienteering, watch out!
