shoes: Specialized Rockhopper

Wee jaunt out to Alloa, around and back. Managed to miss the worst of the weather.

Orienteering race 48:01 [4] *** 6.8 km (7:04 / km)
33c shoes: Asics Gel Cumulus 15

Well, it's official. I'm past it. A disappointing 11th and 3 minutes down on Grump. No solace in major misses or epic hill races this time. Not even in the horrific conditions I "competed" in; at download I was 4th out of 8!

Good fun course, but struggled in the outrageous downpour; tentative round corners, tricky to read map, no acceleration, shoes too comfy for racing and too big for steps...

Running warm up/down 5:00 [3]
shoes: Asics Gel Cumulus 15

To start, but not a warm up...

Orienteering race 23:12 [4] *** 3.4 km (6:49 / km)
30c shoes: Asics Gel Fuji Trainer 2

Fun course, bit slippy, not fully certain how grippy these newish trainers are. Solid run, no major issues.

Orienteering race 59:55 [3]
shoes: Inov8 X-Talon 212

Hahahaha HA! Comedy hour with Ridiculous Rosco and the Floundering FVOers. What a joke! It's no laughing matter.

Horrific performance, absolutely all over the shop. Very distracted by others. Amongst other issues. Frankly unable to believe the extreme sloppiness of the whole affair.

Need to recall that wise mantra of my youth, my yesteryear, those dark days of yore: "You, young padawan, are in control, in control of one thing, one thing only; you are in control of Your race, your race Alone, no others, not a one." (This may have been slightly embellished over the years.)

Great fun of course. And very yummy tea after.

Wee warm up and collecting some flags.

Cycling 40:00 [5]
shoes: Asics Gel Cumulus 15

Spinning at the uni. Better this week - the wumin has sorted out her beats so they coincide with effort and - perhaps more importantly - so they are based on awesome dance hits of the nineties:) Sweaty.
