Well, as was pointed out by a certain Swiss orienteer lots of people have been getting new PB's and Sheffield is no exception: Kanye, Danger, Komodo, Cuddles - all running sub 16.15 in the 5km Parkrun (it's a British thing). I would love to think that I could have joined them. Unfortunately I broke my foot on March 9th - which is one reason why you haven't see a write up of either the British Sprints and Middles or the University Championships.
Fractured 3rd Metatarsal Left Side
So, I am injured. This has of course allowed me to focus on the spectating element of the orienteering season; I got on the commentary team for the British Sprints and Middles. This was a lot of fun, even though my prediction skills are not really perfected. The Sheffield boys were largely disappointed by their sprint performances but Kris pulled out a great run for 2nd place in the middles.

In the University Championships I was their in an organisational capacity, a very rare role indeed. Sheffield placed 2nd in the overall competition with some great runs by Anwen and Laura in the individual race. In the relay we ended up in 3rd in the Men's (upgraded to 2nd in some controversy (nopesport it)) and the Women's 4th. Both teams were disappointed, especially the girls.

This lack of running has allowed me to get on with my Independent Specialised Study (Dissertation) of 7500 words on Health Inequality in Britain. I am actually getting interested in some parts of it which is very nice. Hopefully though it will all go away soon and I get back on with the running.
