orienteering race (Red-middle) 48:06  *** 4.6 km (10:27 / km) +150m 8:59 / km

ROC: Middle distance champs. Letchworth SP. Red course. 11:08 am. Solidly in the middle of the pack on M45. Could have saved a minute or two here and there but still would have been in the middle of the pack, just a little closer to the front. Blister on the left heel is mostly better and was not much of a problem during the race. The extended rest over the last 2 weeks to get it better was a problem as I had no speed on the hills, and not energy on the flat or downhill either.

ROC: Sprint at Letchworth SP. 2:17pm. Hoping for a nice sprint in spite of my non-training. Thought I ran well but again had nothing on the hills. Exhausted going to 12 but the rest was downhill or flat so ok. Happy with my time, but less happy when I saw everyone else's times and that Marcus was under 12. 44th overall so after the women are removed I may get a point or two in the sprint series.
