Running warm up/down 10:00 [2]

Back from the finish. Also went for a lovely walk up to Killicrankie with Freya, but not sure that is good enough for fitness improvement...
9 AM

Running warm up/down 13:50 [3] 1.92 km (7:13 / km) +221m 4:35 / km

Orienteering race 52:29 [4] 6.49 km (8:05 / km) +197m 7:01 / km

Today was not like that. Well, ok, it was a little bit. In reverse. In slow motion. Or perhaps like I was on a planet with a denser atmosphere. And less oxygen.

My battle with Rob Lee and, latterly, Big Jon, was fun, but it was sad to be watching them - and everyone else I saw - run away from me. I consoled myself with thinking, "If I just hang in there until the Micky Mouse section at the end, I'll be able to put the foot down." How wrong I was:( I trailed in, as Roger said, a shadow of the man I used to be...
