12 PM

Orienteering race 45:29 [4] 5.3 km (8:35 / km) +150m 7:31 / km
shoes: inov8 Mudclaw 272

Tankersley Middle Distance (or Parkin & Hesley Woods)
would've been a good run, but for a melt down at 25, attacked off the side of a clearing, but the angle wasn't right, didn't find the control, got confused, didn't help that I was looking for a re-entrant when the control was actually in a depression, close to 3mins gone there

I'm getting fitter and running faster and that means my technique, or my concentration and discipline has to improve

Orienteering 1:16:17 [4] 7.7 km (9:54 / km) +100m 9:18 / km
shoes: inov8 Mudclaw 272

British Night Champs, Tankersley
really good course, not a bad run, missed a few paths, lots of little hesitations - hard to read the map on the run, and the control descriptions while stationary - some short hesitations where I was close, but couldn't see the flag and had to check map, and two misses, notably over the road

7 - ran fast to the fence, attacked off the corner, took a bearing, missed, very vague contours in this area, came out at the path below and looped around to find it, I may have passed quite close first time (3mins)
9 - ran along the edge of the slope and would've hit it bang on, but I got pulled left by the direction others were taking, overshot and relocated on another control (I'd sensed that one was too far), flag was at the back of a hollybush, tricky one (90secs)
14 - couldn't make up my mind which way to go, in the end I stumbled down the slope, fell, rolled and fought my way to the road and went left, must've lost a minute in that period

9th of 20, 16mins behind Dave Peel (target 10th)

Mapping 2:45:00 [0] 5.0 km (33:00 / km)

wanted to finish surveying this section of Farley because next week I want to run around the bits I've mapped, checking the placement of the point features and above all to get a proper sense of the runnability, where the bramble becomes a problem and where not ...

found a nice boulder, definite control site

running (trail) 59:19 [3] 9.97 km (5:57 / km) +220m 5:21 / km
shoes: Inov8 Oroc 340

The Edges (White, Froggatt, Curbar
drove up to Curbar gap for my favourite run, cold, but hardly a breeze, the paths covered in a thin layer of ice, which meant I had to take care, even thought they turned out less slippy than they looked

felt a bit laboured at the start - but there's a fairly sharp climb - but then settled down, in fact, I thought I was going quite fast, however, it was about the same as last time (when I paused to take some photos!)

Mapping 2:00:00 [0] 4.0 km (30:00 / km)

a gig with rhodies on Farley Moor, beyond the rhodies I found some good patches of runnable and some point features, as well as a clearing, a veg boundary, and a ditch junction

6 PM

running warm up/down 17 [2] 2.7 km (6 / km)

around the park a couple of times expecting to bump into Becky and hang some controls, as warm up for intervals

running intervals 21:00 [5] 5.0 km (4:12 / km) +5m 4:11 / km

Hall Leys Park
intervals session: 5 x 1km, with 90secs rest: 4.09 4.07 4.09 4.15 4.13

started off steadily this time, but couldn't get much faster, heart was beating after the fourth, body wasn't really complaining though

running 40:06 [3] 6.7 km (5:59 / km) +130m 5:27 / km

Oker Loop
a bit sticky in the fields and lower slopes but the ridge was nice and that's where, coincidentally, I got going, didn't improve the pace much though

running warm up/down 5:00 [1] 0.73 km (6:51 / km) +30m 5:41 / km
shoes: inov8 Mudclaw 272
