Running warm up/down 40:00  5.3 mi (7:33 / mi)
Run to session - bit faster than I wanted because I was late. Ran back via the shops to get the papers and some bacon and eggs for my second brekkie.
Was late meeting Mike, thought we had lost him, but some youths still out from the night before who were playing on the playground came to my rescue and told me where he had gone - phew!
Orienteering long 14:00  2.4 mi (5:50 / mi)
6.43 (av HR 152) , 7.32 (av HR 153). 2 x a mini sprint course that Clare had planned using some GPS gadgetry that Gareth had.
My first course involved a route with a shut gate which was frustrating. Made another 10sec route choice error. The second time I ran the course head to head with Mike and was 45 seconds quicker, running the same route choices minus the route with the shut gate.
Good session - time will tell what I learn from it.
Running warm up/down 25:00  1.5 mi (16:40 / mi)
Lots of warming up, not so much warming down (think of a number between 0 and 0). Lots of stretching as well as back was really tight.
Orienteering race 36:00  3.5 mi (10:17 / mi)
FCC Middle race - started aggressively, not too tired from the morning's efforts. I was clean through till number 10, where I had not planned my route clearly enough and missed it slightly, then tried too hard on 11/12 where I was trying to run too hard. Missed 16 and 20 as well. In summary not a great run. Pleased with the "technical bits" but failed to keep my concentration going on the easier sections. Got my arse kicked by a few juniors.
