Orienteering 1:30:00  11.3 km (7:58 / km) +770m 5:56 / km
EUOC Big Weekend Classic.
Nav was OK, one BIG mistake, a handful of substantial mistakes and some good nav as well.
Main issue was I wasn't fuelled properly. Had an all afternoon lunch yesterday at grandparents party which was far from ideal leaving me with no appetite last night/this morning and hence no energy in the legs. Ahh well, live and learn.
Needed dobs today to make any progress on the ice......
1-4 Nav fine, a pause into 3 to plan exit to 4, nothing bad. 4, chose over as i thought it would give a better entrance to control site. Very slow progress on path.
5-6 Good navigation, no issue.
7 - dropped to control early, lost a time relocating - 1mins
8 - dropped way to far down hill, easily 3mins gone
9-11 - Mostly ok, although questionable route to 11.
11-13 - Good navigation, a few pauses.
14 - Didn-t think my route was very good
15 - Stated feeling frustrated with the ice and not being able to run properly on it
16 - Good route to circle, then got very confused by map. Just couldn't interpret it properly. Only now sitting down and looking at the map do i understand it. Ahh well, this hasn't happened in ages. 10 mins, at least.
18- messy, focus going
19-27 nothing major, although feeling tired and pissed off from mistake (lots of pausing and small mistakes, atleast 4mins wasted)
28 - bad routechoice (4mins)
29 - good sprint finish
Never really got on with the map, and never found a groove after 7 ( i wasn't doing to badly at that point. 1:40- down on lead), after that i just lost the will to orienteer.)
23mins of navigational mistakes - very bad, time would have been respectable without these.
