Orienteering race 43:03 [4] 6.6 km (6:31 / km) +220m 5:35 / km
shoes: VJ Integrator (8.5)

I just went and completely f**ked this up. Started off not too bad, a little hesitant through 4 and 5 in the first technical bit, but then drifted right on 6. Ended up in the wrong block of forest and couldn't relocate. By the time I'd worked it out and found the control, my 6 minute man Neil was right behind me. We then ran the rest together until I blew another minute on the penultimate control. Was pushing hard when running with Neil and we seemed to be going quite well, but by then it was too late for me.

Finished 57th, which says it all really. That may be my worst ever JK elite middle race result. It's pretty gutting when you're feeling in good shape and you go and screw it up big style.

Running warm up/down 20:00 [2] 3.0 km (6:40 / km)
shoes: VJ Integrator (8.5)

Warm up. No warm down because I was in a massive boo.
