Orienteering race (COC Long) 1:25:32 [4] **** 7.3 km (11:43 / km)

Second place at COCs M20 Long! Felt really sick this morning and contemplated not racing but I decided to go out anyways. I was a bit worried before I started because I was having a really hard time doing my mental prep, going through my race plan and visualization. Once I got running however I focused in pretty good on the map, taking it really slow and just staying in contact at all times. I was a bit shakey to 1 and 2 but once I got a feel for the map I aced almost all controls. My one mistake was on #6 where I mad a slight parallel error which cost me about 2-3 minutes. Over all, besides feeling pretty sick I feel really happy with my race. Slow and steady did me well today.

Over all this COCs was beyond expectations. The radio controls/music/announcing/finish shoot/amazing banquet really put the icing on the cake. Now its time to rest....

Orienteering race (COC Sprint) 17:35 [3] 2.8 km (6:17 / km)
shoes: Saucony Grid Tangent 3

Had a good race today with no errors but my lack of physical training definitely showed through in the results. The sprint was a supper fast and navigation was minimal so I suffered pretty bad, but over all I had a good personal race. Just need to get faster. Much much faster. One thing I noticed today was that I'm not quite pushing as hard as I could. When I finish I still have a bit of energy left. When Im out there I feel like Im dead but really I feel like I could go faster.

Orienteering race 16:29 [4] *** 2.0 km (8:15 / km)

First leg of relay at COCs felt really good up until 9 and 10 control where I then lost about 3 min due to two bad parallel errors. Good and bad race. Stoked for the real COCs races starting tomorrow.
