A very lazy month for orienteering, characterised by either not bothering to get out of bed for events, missing crucial trains, or turning up on the wrong day for the event… I also lay low to nurse a minor injury – my chest muscle, believe it or not, got strained in the Yellowcraigs event in December, causing much worry and needless concern (the pain was in the region of the heart!) As with most muscle injuries, staying indoors and taking it easy was the cure. I did however finally get around to going to the company gym that I had signed up for in November. And very nice it is too. I overdid one of the exercises though (often happens for a first time in comfortable surroundings) and felt it the following day.
