orienteering 14:50 [4]

My first race did not good too well, I got thrown off in the beginning of the race because I wasn't in the right mind set (also didn't help I forgot too put my compass on). The only major mistake I had was to number 3, where I went above the cliff instead of below, because of these two factors I felt I had to make up for these mistakes and catch up (even though I know I shouldn't think this), and didn't regain my composure until around control 9/10. Up until this point I made a quite few dumb route choices and really just wasn't thinking. On the bright side I did manage to regain my concentration in a race, and orienteered well after that.

For the second race in a row I forgot my map case, but other then that it started out fairly well. However I do think I should have ran harder in the beginning legs of the race. I lost a bit of time on control _, where I just didn't see what I pictured and slowed down, so I need to remember to visualize and simplify even in sprints (especially forested sections). I also need to work on running harder through the forest. Then I lost some 10 seconds or so, going through some thicker vegetation, and a marsh. So I just need to work on spotting a quick way through the forest in sections like that, not just running straight through. Other then that my race went pretty well.

running intervals 30:00 [4]

We did 7 pump house loops, on every 2nd one we did a cardiac hill with the loop. We had about a minute rest between each one. My left knee hurt (on the third knee) during the run but that was probably due to a lack of strengthening it recently.
