7 AM

Running 31:57 [2] 4.0 mi (7:59 / mi)
slept:8.0 shoes: Asics GT 2170

Really struggled this morning - felt sleepy and leg tired which is undoubtedly the effects of the 6 Day and long drive back. Around town and then back from Tesco.
6 PM

Running warm up/down 26:00 [2] 3.0 mi (8:40 / mi)
shoes: Brooks ST 5 Racers

Mile beforehand (with sharp strides) and then a couple easy afters including a swift trot back to Sloane Sq.

Orienteering race 27:13 [5] 4.4 km (6:11 / km) +40m 5:55 / km
shoes: Brooks ST 5 Racers

Battersea Park-race: really good course on an area that punishes sloppy O-ing at speed - and I was guilty of that tonight. Real hesitation at start as struggled to orientate self sufficiently do slow to #1 and then had to tie shoe laces (idiot!) on way to #2. Made real mess of #4 as was too high in the trees and lost over 40 secs on a 50 metre leg! Did complete circuit of building at #8 as hadn't read contl description. Another 10 secs. Picked up and passed Karen Poole but then went into the vegetation too early for #14 and she passed me again (another 10 secs). Was coming out of 14 when took a bad tumble and bashed forearm on a log. Winded me and was slow and hesitant to both 15 & 16 as a result (more time - 25 secs or so?). Went to wrong thicket for #18 and then chose wrong route to #20 (25 secs). Slight miss to #21 before finally getting clear of Karen. Think my route to #23 was also slightly slower than Dylan's. Another slight miss at #25 (wrong tree)- 5 secs. Overall I reckon to have made 2'30 worth of mistakes - not clever and was also struggling with my running tonight. Finished 11th and prob should have been 4th. Need both recovery and hard training!
