8 AM

Orienteering 17:55 [3] 3.22 km (5:34 / km) +78m 4:58 / km
ahr:149 max:166

Really enjoyed this. Nothing daft, clever or tricky. Just normal fast racing. (Except for the map flip!!) The map flip completely threw me. Not sure why, but it did. Andis re-caught me and shouted at me for not recognising 7. But I’d already done that. That wasn’t the nonsense that was going on in my head. Our interaction wasn’t even brief. He flew past in disgust and I just tagged on for one second. Then boom I was with it again. (Funny thing that 1/2 a second is all we’ve ever engaged with each other over 3 years ) Then another 20 secs lost at 10 running around a building next to the actual control. Again Andis caught me, but this time he recognised a Dotard.
Best part of a throughly disappointing weekend. Bairns loved it. Kendal was 2nd. Eadie trolleyed around with her new friend. Best thing was Kendal recognised ineptitude and was livid after the Middle. Nice to see that kid motivated.
12 PM

Orienteering 22:42 [3] 4.4 km (5:09 / km) +62m 4:49 / km
ahr:140 max:169

This was excellent. Was crapping over the fact I’d miss my flight but instead Denver was closed and the crazies are off another day of school.
Jordan briefed me over the spiel and I was ready. Only mistakes came at the butterfly....which I knew immediately would be an issue. First I missed the Universal control (I saw you chuckle Jordan). Then coming out of that control for the second time I made the huge 3 min mistake. I went 13, 15,14,15,16. That totally pissed me off. Ultimately this was full on fun though. Hope it didn’t affect OK’s overall result. They were unbelievably accommodating to my needs in the end.

Girls did great. Two happier campers.
10 AM

Orienteering 1:18:57 [3] 9.04 km (8:44 / km) +469m 6:56 / km
ahr:148 max:180

Close to bailing this morning and taking the girls down the beach, but they wanted to go run amazingly. I was still fuming.
Much improved experience, even though I got to the start with 1min 15secs to spare thanks the prompt bus service......
Generally I’m very happy with the run. Probably lost the race on the 1st leg. I went right and got caught in some terrible green. On leg two I was stung 4 times by something. Having read Jordan’s log yesterday I’m assuming the pain I’m currently experiencing is from Yellow Jackets but I didn’t see what was actually attacking me. 6 was a 2 min mistake. 9 was another 3mins. At 9 I bonked. I ran straight to the cliff on M21E. But it was under the circle so I couldn’t identify where I immediately was. From then on I jogged In exhausted.
Very happy with the navigation and the effort. (Paying for the effort now, terrible stomach issues). Calf is very good. Not sure about tomorrow. I don’t like multi level sprint maps.

Orienteering 1:01:40 [3] 5.66 km (10:53 / km) +275m 8:46 / km
ahr:125 max:158

Three thumbs down from The O'Callaghans. Think the summer spoilt us. The terrain and scenery was fantastic. HR was ridiculously low, but never really broke a sweat. Calf is extremely sore. Hope all the logistics are ironed out tomorrow.

Running 17:12 [3] 2.91 km (5:55 / km) +68m 5:17 / km
ahr:141 max:160

Calf is totally knackered. Well pissed off. Now the dilemma. Run on it and be out for 8 weeks. Or skip this weekend. Apart from the cold I was really looking forward to these races. See what tomorrow brings, but it's hurting like a Sunderland Netflix subscriber.

(rest day)

I feel rough as a badgers bum. Cold's getting worse. Ears wouldn't equalise going down to Montrose.

3 PM

Running 34:19 [3] 5.82 km (5:54 / km) +129m 5:18 / km
ahr:157 max:180

6 x 20 secs strides......ended up being 4 x hill reps. Felt shite, but I think I've broke it. Terrible night's sleep too. Rest tomorrow.

I think the Valley Floor would make a great map. Wish I knew how to go about it.
4 PM

Running 32:37 [3] 6.49 km (5:02 / km) +50m 4:50 / km
ahr:150 max:173

Easy w/ Camp McKee map. Felt wretched today. Caught Kendal's cold. Ran in the Valley Floor. Back on Hike and bike.
