Yepsport is now on the WordPress CMS, having been on Movable Type up until now from when it was first started earlier this year. The key difference (other than the look) is that WordPress pages are generated on the fly for every view.

The Back is Back (and more)

As expected, I’ve bounced back very quickly from Monday’s low back injury, and was back at work today. I didn’t make the event tonight though. Assuming the pain continues to decrease, Sunday’s event is looking good. My parents must be reading all three of my weblogs like every 10 minutes.

Sometime last I was actually planning to plan this (no pun intended) race but as events transpired OUOC chose Luke M to plan the event, and I’m glad I had the opportunity to run at least part of his excellent course.… Continue reading Event: Longmoor, Haslemere

I’ve launched this site today – most of the previous entries you see here are copied from my main weblog. My orienteering articles will all appear here going forward, as I look to split out the O content and increase my output.

Injury Worries

My knee injury, which happened this time last year after I plunged my foot down a rabbit role while racing in a National, has recurred. The timing is unfortunate, as I’ve really come into fitness in the last few weeks, and seen my speed steadily increase.
