Orienteering (GO Bananas) 1:00:00  6.0 km (10:00 / km)
GO Bananas training in Farley Heath. Good terrain training as I was constantly running through bracken and brambles so pretty scratched by the end. Set out and collected most controls as well as some running in between.
Orienteering race 59:50  7.55 km (7:55 / km)
PIOM Long Distance.
Pretty fed up with the unrunnable terrain and seemingly infinite green that was marked as yellow! I lost a total of about 9 mins to the winner by bad route choices (going straight) whereas I could have easily gone round on a path. I didn't know how rough it was so I went straight but was not a good decision. Bust my knee open, hobbled found and ended up in First Aid tent.
Disappointed with my run, as I could have done much better today. But heyho, still came second on the day & overall, so got a nice medal & flowers at prizegiving, so that was good.
Orienteering race (Middle) 39:30  4.4 km (8:59 / km)
Penmacor International O Meeting Day 1 M16 - 2nd place
Today's middle distance was on some excellent, rocky and varied terrain. I got thrown off transitioning from complex rocky areas into simpler, flatter terrain (#9). I lost my concentration as it was towards the end and my use of compass wasn't great. Good thing to work on there, how to stay in control.
Orienteering race (Urban) 15:13  2.9 km (5:15 / km)
Penamacor Urban Night Sprint - 1st place
Pretty good race all round, feeling nicely warmed up and no problems with stitches or anything. No mistakes around a fairly difficult sprint urban area but flow definitely could have been better through the really short legs. Lost total 20 seconds from hesitations. Now ready for battle at the Long Distance tomorrow!
Orienteering 1:15:00  5.0 km (15:00 / km)
Morning was some very technical orienteering in boulder covered, pathless terrain, used as the model event for Penamacor WRE O-Meeting. Getting my head in gear for the weekend ahead, getting used to the area & mapping.
Afternoon was just walking around the second model event in a simpler area, studying the different rock features and the variety of terrain.
