Really glad I went to Estonia. Good trip and my orienteering was an improvement on the JK (not hard!). Wasn't running as fast as I wanted but at least I felt good running which was great change. Sprint was fun. Would definitely liked to have performed better in the middle and been solidly in the GB pack. Longs for me seem to go depending on the mood I'm in - need to get better at psyching myself up for them with more confidence. Wrong descriptions and barbed wire fence incident weren't ideal here!
Overall was off the back of the GB pack (and just behind Pete!) in every race, but getting in it and in the mix for selection doesn't seem unfeasible. Obviously quite a few people weren't there.
Dodgy knee over winter hampered my training until February. Running with Birchfield has been good to push me, the sessions can be quite long so often need to pace myself to finish them properly - just need to stick with it. Seems that for work reasons I haven't managed to do double interval sessions in a week.
Signed up for this
with Abi starting at the end of July, need to do some training for that and also make sure the Shropshire Summer Fell Race Series is secured. Also a bit bored at work so need to mix things up.
