Run 30:00 [3]
shoes: XTalon212-1

Various running to/from at York Uni

Orienteering 16:02 [3] ***
19c shoes: XTalon212-1

Qualifier 2B: we had arrived much later than I normally like to - on-time rather than ridiculously early.
Steady start, nearly stepped across narrow OOB on way to #5, lost count of fences to 15 (15s) and concentration to 16 (10s). Surprised to win heat comfortably although TT pulled up.

Orienteering 15:05 [3] ***
21c shoes: XTalon212-1

A FInal: thought the first section would be tricky so began steadily. Hesitated a couple of times (ex 3, ex 6) and about 15secs off pace by #10. Then lost 35secs on left/right choice to 11; thought right was a trap but it turns out left was the trap and had to take a long detour.

I do think that the standard of performance in sprints is going up, in our age group anyway. Perhaps it's the number of urbans nowadays. One second per leg makes a big difference to the result. Special credit must go to Nev for the planning and particularly for precise hanging controls. Almost always, the feature came up before the flag was visible, just as it should be.

Had to spend two hours in the evening queuing/driving in medical facilities.
On Friday, I probably got a secondary infection to an insect bite on my right hand. Gardening is very dangerous you know. During Saturday the whole hand swelled and the CLOK medical contingent of pharmacists and GPs politely advised me to get it seen to. First antibiotics for 25 years .....

Orienteering 58:00 [3] ***
ahr:153 23c shoes: XTalon212-1

HALO Pillar - simple orienteering but good to have a fast run before next weekend's races. Not sure when I last ran 5.6m/k in a forest.
Managed to lose 30secs on first short leg, banana on #6- clean otherwise.
Easy week coming up.
