Still feeling stiff from the weekend orienteering - not expecting a great time.

Orienteering 1:16:57 [4] *** 9.22 km (8:21 / km) +265m 7:18 / km
spiked:16/25c shoes: VJ Falcon

TVOC Chiltern Challenge - Short Brown
Driving rain and only just above freezing - needed to keep moving to keep warm. A challenging day logistically for taking the family to O.
Map seemed reasonable, but many controls stuck into pits which were difficult to spot unless you were right on top of them. Passed within 3m of one of the control sites without seeing the flag at one point.
Lead-legged after yesterdays SOG. Didn't get a shower until bedtime - perhaps that part of the reason? Forest was generally runnable (in spite of a bit of bramble in places), but a day for those runners not too phased by hills - my heavy legs didn't enjoy that aspect much! Missed more controls on first pass than I would've liked - need to concentrate on getting bearings accurate and being more disciplined on attackpoint selection. Had to do without glasses due to the rain - might be time to invest in a visor of some sort.

10 AM

Orienteering 44:30 [4] *** 5.2 km (8:33 / km)
shoes: VJ Falcon

Abbot's Wood SOG - Blue

Area much improved since I last ran here (1999?).
1:10000 map showed much more useable detail than earlier 1:15000 version.
Lots of good work evident by the planner/mapper.
Enjoyed the course in spite of the widespread bramble cover (and a course design that made it difficult to avoid) and mud. Ran early today, with A taking second split. Didn't have chance to take B & E on the Yellow course due to a bit of a misunderstanding on childcare, but also put off by the half km each way to start and from finish. Childrens play equipment at the carpark was extensive and a good alternative to the yellow in the circumstances.
Very nice to be able to retire to T & A house for a main meal. Hospitality was such that we didn't manage to leave until 6:30pm!

Was all set to be away in good time, then (as I wheeled the bike through the house gate) found I had a front tyre puncture. Replaced tube, but consequently 20mins later than I wanted. Provenance of replacement tube unknown - hoping that I dont find a flat when I head off from work!
