Normal Orienteering race (Middle Race) 44:03 [4]
shoes: Inov 8s - Oroc 280s

Not a great race - started 8 mins behind Ollie and 1 min in front of Richard Guillamme - got caught by Richard by No.1 as has happened on numerous occassions in the past and would usually lead to a fair bit of towing - but no energy today and couldn't hold the pace, got dropped when I went wide to 5 and overshot onto 6 and had to go back. Caught a glimpse of Ollie here crossing the fence - so an insight into the dramas he was having.

Fairly scrappy through the next three - probably as was tryign to push it to catch Ollie. Finally caught him at 19 where he was walking and had been fairly clean if slow through the rest.

Overall not a great placing 49th out of 58 but looking back, this time last year I was nervous of even running elite and now am happy to run at this level even if badly at the moment.

Sprint Orienteering race (Heat C) 17:47 [5]
shoes: Lunar glides 2 1st pair

Poor start - couldn't fit the map to the ground as had just watched the previous starters to get the direction and the line went out due west from the start and direction we needed to go in to get around th ebuilding was north and struggled with this.

Also ran full pelt into a lad on the way to No.2 which shook me up a bit and meant that I hit the wrong side of th ehedge into 2 and then went straight to 4 instead of 3. Settled down after this a bit and was runnign fairly well but navigation was scrappy, really not getting into the map and made a couple fo major wrong side of the feature decisions.

Again a poor result coming in 29th out of 39 a good 5 min down on the leader.

Sprint Orienteering race (B Final) 14:26 [5]
shoes: Saucony Peregrine

B Final was better got into the map much more quickly and was off a minute after Ollie, clean start and nearly caught him coming out of 4, but a bit hesitant on 5 let him get away and then made an error coming out of 9 and dropping into a dead end losing 40seconds. But happy with run overall.

Again 29th but this time out of 87 and beat some decent runners.

Street O Series race (LOK Street O) 56:48 [4] **
shoes: Lunar glides 2 1st pair

Good, well planned race - legs not turning over quite as well as I'd like - fuelling and hydration very poor this week - need to focus on this.

Think came in 2nd to Paul C 100 points down as didn't realise scale was 1:7 not 1:10 so tactically left too many early on thinking wouldn't have time for them and then ran out of controls at the end, also left one 50 point cluster stupidly.

Still won the inaugural North London Street O Series! Woo
