Imperial College park race
Another good race on this tricky map. I think I had different attitudes for the first and second half of this race. I started quite steady and focused on planning ahead for the complicated section over the first few controls. That meant I could go clean to #12 climbing to 2nd place.
Then I have to admit I got a bit vain as I went past a couple of colleagues and thought I should put the hammer down through the easy 13-17. It didn't work out for me. I ran past #13 and got #19 wrong, thinking it was high. Those mistakes dropped me down to 7th place. Will try and learn from that.
Felt like I was running properly for the first time since April, although I really started to fade on the last few around the park.

Jukola 6th leg
well it never disappoints. What a competition. Loved the F-18 flyby start and the atmosphere generally, helped by some exciting races and GB performances at the sharp end.
Initially I was a bit disappointed with the run having hoped I could set adam off before the cut-off. But actually I don't think I had it in me to go 10 mins quicker on the day. The terrain was very tough and rocky, not the sort of place for ankle rehab, and I struggled physically. Although on the plus side - no complaints from the ankle at all so I think I can start being a bit less tentative.
Technically it was hard too and I made one big mistake on #5. Classic parallel error. It was an easy mistake to make but actually there were a couple of clues and it should have been possible to catch it. By the time I did work out what had happened I was only a few hundred metres from the control, but had to traverse a boulder field to get there so it was a big one time-wise.
Other than that it was fairly minor stuff although I probably did drift away from the best route at times.

Just went very steady round a few of the controls trying to cherry pick the nice parts. No major problems.

Orienteering 35:00 [3] 4.0 km (8:45 / km)
shoes: Icebug

Jukola training area
Trains with Team Monday. Good session, pushing to the limit (and some way beyond) of my navigating ability.
I was blowing quite hard from lack of running recently and also running quite tentatively so others were mostly quicker. But when I concentrated on my own nav for the last loop things got a bit cleaner.
