Orienteering race 44:47 [4] 5.0 mi (8:57 / mi)
shoes: Innov8 X-Talon

Day 5. Chasing start 6.7km in forest very like Epping.
Never saw anyone the whole race. Held on to 9th despite small miss at no 8 (7th fastest time of the day). Narrowed gap to 36s. Overall pleasing result and calf survived which is the main thing.

Orienteering race 51:19 [4] 5.0 mi (10:16 / mi)
shoes: Innov8 X-Talon

Day 4. 6.6km.
Late start but failed to take advantage. Very tricky first 5 controls and I messed up two of them. Biggest loss was 4 mins at no.3 but another minute went at 5 and I then went walkabout at no.6 as well (2 min). Surprised to be only 6.5 min down but somehow clung on to 9th overall (13th on the day). Big gap in front though for tomorrow's chasing start. Will need to do better to stay in top 10. Second fastest split of the week; particularly pleasing that this was on a long (9 min) leg too.

Orienteering race 30:28 [4] 3.0 mi (10:09 / mi)
shoes: Innov8 X-Talon

Day 3. Middle Distance on sand dunes, 4.1km.
A couple of big mistakes: 1.5 min at 6 and 3.5 min at 10. Finished about 6 min down. Particularly frustrated with miss at 10 as I must have run right past it at first attempt. Frustration resulted in the fastest split to no 11.
16th on the day, down to 9th overall (20 min down).

Training on terrain relevant to days 1 and 2. Easier than yesterday but still managed one big miss. Hopefully getting over my rustiness before tomorrow.
Tweeked something at top of left leg/groin striding awkwardly at one point but calf fine.
