Orienteering race 37:42 [5] 4.2 km (8:59 / km) +220m 7:07 / km
shoes: Inov8 Oroc 340

British Middle Distance, M45
moderate, hesitant over the first few (tiny depressions, or pits), had to really work to get any pace going, caught by Billenicus at #13, which helped the pace, stayed with him thanks to him missing #17, but lost sight after the hill at #23, deranged coming out of the light green section and blew a few places :(

#1 couldn't see the flag or the micro-pit [20]
#2 off-line right [as usual], again hard to spot the pit [40]
#7 a better line might've been down the re-entrant, hesitant (slow) climing the spur [20]
#8 (slow) [10]
#10 found 11 first [20]
#12 slightly distracte by seeing Jon Cross going in an odd direction, turned off the 'elephant track' and wandered into some bracken, realised the spur ahead really was the one wanted [40]
#13 better line left to the crossing [10]
#19 cautious [10]
#21 stayed high, too high [10]
#26 like many, distracted by control in the niche/depression, continued left, attracted by a piece of red plastic [40]
#28 didn't really have a plan, should've erred to the right of the ridge with the fields in sight, but missed the veg boundary altogether and overshot [80]

total: 5mins

on 'times without mistakes' it's unusual for me to gain places, but today I would've been 5th (ahead of JD)

9th, 7mins behind Bill, and 1sec behind Jon Cross [I'd have been satisfied with 8th]

running warm up/down 10:00 [1] 0.8 km (12:30 / km) +10m 11:46 / km

some 'lunges' followed by a jog up and down the car park to warm up

12 PM

Orienteering race (spring) 16:20 [4] *** 2.2 km (7:25 / km) +40m 6:48 / km
shoes: Mizuno Wave Ascend 7

British Sprint Champs Heat, M45
no real errors, couple of sub-optimal routes, but just didn't run fast enough in either race, worked okay when qualifying, but not in the final (which, as expected, was easier after the courses had swapped), when I say I didn't run fast enough I mean I could've run faster, I left something out there, didn't reach the right intensity

maybe I'm in lacklustre form physically

5th, 95secs behind Martin Ward

3 PM

Orienteering race (sprint) 14:42 [4] ** 2.4 km (6:07 / km) +50m 5:33 / km

British Sprint Champs A Final, M45
(see above), too easy

10th, 2.5mins behind Logue, but only 40secs behind 3rd place

Stanton Moor, Rowsley, Lower Lindop, Haddon
nice loop from the Flying Childers, Stanton-in-Peak, on a beautiful evening, some views I hadn't really seen before, legs really feeling it after the weekend's urban racing, glad I could take it easy, the ribs were painful during the day, but after paracetamol not on the run
