Running 10:00 [3]

Orienteering 44:39 [3] 6.2 km (7:12 / km) +160m 6:23 / km

Relays at Summer House Knott, first leg for UBOC on Men's Premier
Obvs the boys are quicker than the girls so for the first 6 controls, I was just hanging on and navigating a little bit (enough to take some shorter micro routechoices thank god) . Control 6, Tom Fellbaum went lower down the slope than I expected the control to be so didn't follow but actually it was there so I lost a few mins. Next few were okay then took the contouring-around route to 9 whiich was fine but then everyone was in the circle searching and I didn't find it either until I saw Ben run up the hill and punch it.
Ben got away but I managed to keep with Ewan and some other guys for the next ones to spectator, where it turns out I was ahead of Ben again! (Cracking under the pressure of his girlfriend beating him ;)) sadly I made a small miss at 18 and he got ahead again. Still, had him in my sights for a few controls in the open and then he made another mistake and i got there first wooohoo! Ran together for a bit but he ramped up the pace and got away a final time ;) fun
Matt and Abi had decent runs and brought UBOC back 13th :)


A final walk up gummers how while alice was in a meeting, beautful views and saw Alice (leake) there too :)

Running 10:00 [3] 1.5 km (6:40 / km) +100m 5:00 / km

Orienteering 1:23:12 [3] 11.04 km (7:32 / km) +300m 6:38 / km

British champs long distance at High Dam
A strange one - had a bit of a mental battle in the first half to keep going when it didn't feel like it was going well, and picked up in second half.
Started nicely to no1, through the open and down into reentrant. Control 2, I lost time by coming out too far right at the lake then generally hesitant until I was on the nice bit of slope leading down to the control. Caught Kim here but next few, I kept losing time in the circle, unable to read the detail at 1:15. Long leg to 7, Kim was strong up that hill and I saw her disappear into the distance (also started thinking about not racing the rest of the course - 'should I really push if I'm not feeling great and have exams and estonia coming up?' - and took a really, really long time to get up the hill).
But to my surprise at control 8, I caught both Kim and Julie. Led for a couple of controls and got away after 10. Catching them perked me up a lot and despite losing time in circle at 11 and 12, the orienteering felt a lot more flowy, probably because i could read the map better here. Felt fine through spectator and only had a short loop left so didn't take my gel. Except for a small mistake at 18, the rest was fine and was nice to see Rona in the last loop :)
2nd, 3:30 off Tess
Looking forward to doing more long races in future :)
