Running warm up/down 20:00 [2] 2.0 km (10:00 / km)

New WU routine
12 PM

Orienteering race 36:27 [4] 6.16 km (5:55 / km)

Good long distance around a typical Belgium, flat area. The course had some nice long legs, as well as some technical-ish, short controls. Executed all legs pretty well, only hesitating a bit into #13 not seeing the veg-boundary. Solid race overall, feeling pretty good and splits showed I held good pace throughout.

Overall Results

The week was enjoyable training with the result not the main focus. Fitness on track, now need some super technical training in the spring!

Orienteering race 31:40 [4] 6.22 km (5:05 / km)

Day 4 today was a typical, fairly long urban around a large housing estate and intricate town centre including some steep Dutch dykes. Good course with some detail but couldn't read half of it due to the rain and the plastic bag around the map. No big mistakes and flow was pretty good throughout. #4 I made a bad route choice and overshot a street I was supposed to go down, losing 30 seconds or more.

Orienteering race 45:34 [4] 7.0 km (6:31 / km)

Day 3 out of 5. Not great race today however felt physically great but bad navigation as well. Good start to the race but approaching our butterfly, I kept on over-shooting controls. Map scale 1:7,500 !
#12 I overshot by about 200m without knowing, not seeing a path at all and ran vaguely until I hit another path completely past the control!
#20 was also messy as I overshot a big clearing and mistook another one for it so was running round like a headless chicken and should have sensibly relocated.
Untidy day but some good technical navigation in the middle of the race.

Orienteering race 38:00 [4] 6.0 km (6:20 / km)

Day 2 of the Sylvester 5 Day. Nice middle distance in a sand dun-ish area with some vague but small bits of contour detail. Good course with only a minor error at number 2, overshooting due to not being used to the scale of 1:7500. Overall pretty satisfied with my race apart from the fact I MPed on a very unfair control site. Simply the two controls were on an exactly similar feature with in 100m of each other and similar codes, just not careful enough I guess. Good lesson there.

Orienteering race 41:48 [4] 6.78 km (6:10 / km)

Day 1 of the Belgium Sylvester in nice, sandy and rough terrain. Ok run all round but some scrappy controls, number 1 being one of them. Only lost around 45 seconds but enough to be annoyed about. I circled around the control due to bad vegetation and brashing. Fairly nice terrain only complaint is that I was getting whipped in the face by branches every few seconds!
