11 AM

Orienteering race 48:02 [4] 4.0 mi (12:01 / mi)
shoes: Innov8 X-Talon 212 (2)

Scottish Spring Middle Distance WRE, Bonskeid.
Blue course (same as Men's WRE) 5.6 km.
4th race in 3 days and really feeling it now. Thought I'd run OK but must have been plodding. 13 mins down on Pete Hodkinson.
A few hesitations plus a big miss (1.5 to 2 mins) at #18. Then maybe poor route selections for the two controls over the big hill at the end. In hindsight going round both times would probably have been quicker. Struggled to stay alive coming down the hill through fallen trees to the last control (1.46 min for 75m leg downhill!)
Time to rest for BOC.

Trail running 20:00 [2] 2.0 mi (10:00 / mi)
shoes: Innov8 X-Talon 212 (2)

Shuffle to/from start/finish.

Orienteering race 23:00 [4] 2.0 mi (11:30 / mi)
shoes: V J Supra (2)

JOK Chasing Sprint, Faskally.
Prologue course 1: 3.1km
Good clean run but still got caught by Will Hensman towards the end. 2nd on M40+ 1 min behind Dave Godfree but 5 mins down on GG.
2 PM

Orienteering race 27:22 [4] 2.5 mi (10:57 / mi)
shoes: V J Supra (2)

The Chase. 3.5km
Chasing Andy Llewellyn out of the start but gradually getting dropped. Then Roger Goddard caught me (20 seconds ) and gradually got dropped by him. Happy with my run though finishing 3rd M40+ behind two good M40s. 1 min behind Dave again but 6 behind GG. 2 min/km behind GG is obviously the new norm.
R calf a little sore towards the end of the chase probably as the speed increased through the caravan park.
Overall results:

Trail running 30:00 [2] 3.0 mi (10:00 / mi)
shoes: V J Supra (2)

Jogging to start of both prologue and chase plus good warm down after the chase.

Event: Dark Thistle
9 PM

Orienteering race 1:09:47 [3] 4.5 mi (15:30 / mi)
shoes: V J Supra (2)

The Dark Thistle, Craig a' Barns.
Short course, 5.5km
It was a struggle. Mainly map reading issues due to glare from the flimsy map case and glasses steaming up. It was great fun though and a challenge just to finish.

4 PM

Trail running 55:00 [3] 6.5 mi (8:28 / mi)
shoes: Innov8 Mudclaw(2)

Standard loop around Silkstone Common for the first time in a while.
Feeling pretty good but right calf was sore after a couple of miles. I think this is the same issue as what I had thought might be an Achilles problem. It is probably a hangover from the fell race a week ago. Hopefully will be OK for slower running in terrain at the weekend.
