Orienteering 46:20 [5] 6.8 km (6:49 / km)

JK Middle.
Thought I was passed this stage, conked out at 8. Breathing awful, cruised it back trying not to make mistakes. Not putting myself through tomorrow as after much experience of doing things for the sake of it, I’ve realised mentally and physically it does me no good.

Tough to take, really working hard on my confidence at the moment and this is testing it. Training hard and everything was going well. Less than a week ago thought I was fitter than ever, right now no idea. However you don’t suddenly become unfit in a few days, bad timing but I had a chat with Sarah Rollins today with some ideas.

I’ll be back!

My boss from work also came along today I see what my sport was all about which was a nice touch and really committed to helping me.

Friday Apr 19 #

Orienteering 7:29 [4] 1.47 km (5:05 / km)
shoes: Asics GT-1000 7

Felt a bit laboured, hopefully just the morning. Brain warmed up.

Running 39:58 [3] 6.83 km (5:51 / km)
shoes: Asics GT-1000 7

W/u usual inc. trying to feel confident in punching system (haha), drills and strides to open out. Struggled a little to get going but stayed positive as thought I’d be fine with buzz of racing.
W/d frustrated so took myself away but found Lydia who totally understands my situation so was perfect at making me feel better.

Orienteering 17:10 [5] 3.74 km (4:35 / km)
shoes: Asics GT-1000 7

JK Sprint - I am so much better than this so understandably not happy. Physically my body did not turn up today (evident in splits as I’m poor all the way). I felt flat, no next gear and just had nothing when passed.

I do not train as hard as I do to feel so demoralised. I have had the similar feeling with a slight high followed by real flatness racing just after a b12 injection before (reversing out syndrome). I’m learning to manage this issue but still learning. After emptying myself last weekend, body is still recovering with regard to this. I need more help as if I was in a British Senior team in other sports I’d have access to have support. As Dad puts it...I’d be an interesting case for a sports scientist!

No disrespect to all the volunteers but event totally marred by punching system. How this event can be used as a selection race? Also meant to be a world ranking event and Britain’s premier event...sadly makes the sport look like a joke when we don’t even know for sure who went to all the controls. We’ve three more days of this!
