Orienteering race (Royal Score) 44:30 [3] *** 6.78 km (6:34 / km) +155m 5:53 / km
ahr:170 max:188 spiked:17/17c shoes: Inov-8 Mudclaw 333

Score event, 4th with 750 pts
[EDIT: the first control i visited didn't register, so i should have had 770 points and 3rd :(]
almost didn't go out for a run, as was feeling pretty crappy,
wanted to see how i felt and take it easy if my legs were still in St Helens.

decided to skip the hills for the first control, #1 there were 2-3 people in front of me that went that way and i don't like to follow, #2 I didn't want to struggle up a (small) hill to start the run, I think this was a good idea as i was able to do an easy running pace in the first 10 mins.
hit an easy control 103 first, had to wake it up then followed a stream of people 108,92,88,82,84,85,100,102
decided to breakaway and go down to 101 and was able to run to the last control alone, walked up some hills but felt much better than yesterday.
101,97,109,118,115,104,105, had time for 117 then decided that was all, had 30 seconds to spare so was well timed.

only navigational error was a 5-10 second hesitation on 115, may have had time to pick up more points if i grabbed 104 and 105 on my way out but was very happy with the end result.
