SLR round the hill and down to haslingfield with Henry, blacker and ed. Lovely chat and the easy pace was much appreciated - legs still feeling a bit shot after Friday.

Some wee exercises on a comedically out of date map out in Thetford with James. Part of the world I've never visited - sunny weather gave very French vibes imo.

Peg race with cuoc and drongo. Was always going to be a shuffle but lots of carnage to spectate whilst in the race. Again the map was causing a healthy dose of chaos - fun fun. Jogged it in after about 5k.
6 PM

Note

Real event of the day was the world's inaugral voi-rienteering e-scooter sprintO race pre-50th anniversary dinner.
Embraced my inner 12 year old and quite simply thought this was just about the most fun O exercise I've ever done. Control flow went out the window since I never got the hang of map reading on the move, and then got caught by some steps which I had to lug my 40kg scooter up - brutal.
7:36 for 1.63km with an average speed of 12.9km/h. Respectable effort and so much fun. Good invention from Lachlan

WU. Wore the next% which was an excellent idea.

Battersea 5k - 14:25
Some days things just go to plan eh. Was feeling buoyed before the race after Grace’s awesome time and was a little hyper after having to dodge two particularly officious volunteers trying to snip my race chip off before I’d even started.
Felt decent on the WU and knew I wanted to start near the back and hit a 2:56 first k. I actually surpassed even my own standards of being wide at starts by semi head butting the guy in front as we went off the line to push him along. Worked well, will do again. Call me zinedine.
Start was pretty cagey - lots of guys in a small space but managed to carve a position out and slotted in beside macgregor to go through 500 in 1:28 and 1 in 2:56, just as planned.
Felt fantastic and continued as such to up until around 3k. Started overtaking consistently from about 2.5k onwards when people inevitably started popping.
With a mile to go, as expected, I was really starting to feel it but the pace was solid and I managed to slot into the main chasing pack. Having successfully navigating the bollard which nearly rendered me permanently infertile on the first lap, we had a very cagey 4-4.5k when I got rather boxed in.
From this point it was just a fat gurn for home. Really went for it and even then I must have lost about 4 or 5 places in the last 300. Tried to remind myself that I was in fact trying very hard and it doesn’t matter too much that I have the finishing speed of the manchester airport security queue.
And with that it was done. Massive YASS after we crossed the line, cos you gotta celebrate these moments - they don’t come often. Overall, the ideal race. Felt strong and didn’t fade. Can’t ask for more. Delighted. Orienteering really is the only valid 5k training strategy.
Someone call the fire brigade. A barn just got burnt down.

Slightly overestimated run out to the american cemetery. Worth it though for the yellow fields and good vibes. Got slightly attacked by a vicious hound called, ironically, Rosie. Some dog owners are beyond parody.

Up to North Cam for some O. James bailed to save the legs so a bit of a lonely warm up but I'm sure I'll forgive him some day.

First course. Loads of barriers slapped down and I did get caught out for a few secs once. Felt like I was getting everywhere very quickly - maybe cos the last time I did urban orienteering was at Caerwent on a 1:10,000

Orienteering 5:58 intensity: (12 @1) + (10 @2) + (5:05 @3) + (31 @4) 1.5 km (3:59 / km)

Second course - all smooth and sighting/planning ahead well which was nice to see.

Hareys sesh
Supposedly 1000,600,800,400,600,300,400,200
But this corresponded as much to reality as me winning an oscar for best sound and lighting in a feature film.
Were doing some laps of the cricket pitch at churchill so it mainly related to that. Insane recovery lengths which quite frankly belong to the streets but this wasn't half fun. It felt great to be running fast and feeling strong so I think this abomination of a session just about be forgiven.

Back from the gym past the llamas. Used high levels of genius to solve potential nipple chaffage before it really started to bite - exquisite.
