Orienteering race race (Urban) 22:33 [4] **** 2.7 km (8:21 / km) +85m 7:13 / km
ahr:161 max:174

Urban race #2 at Wilds. My first race since last year.
Very few places I felt like I could run hard other than the finish. It was watching my footing (especially down stairs/hills) and trying to read the intricate paths . So got very little flow in planning ahead and I didn't always make the best route choice. Also decided to try stick to the line as much as possible (as I wasn't moving that fast) which wasn't always the best choice. Typically so took some time to get into the map for the first few controls. Lost some time on 2 going to left of the line and also having to dodge newcomers on the path. More time lost on 7-that area always confuses me. Let myself be distracted by the control before 8. Over the bridge was just slow on hills (up and down)

Setting out courses and cone grids

Coaching (Delivery - Brescia school) 45:00 [0]

Started with a 4x5 cone grid, girls then had to 'pick' their best choice attack point for a specific leg on a pre-marked map, run back, jot down their choice and then do another cone grid. Next exercise was map memory single point to point orienteering, with a focus on map legend and route planning, with AP. Advanced had to do two controls at a time. Ended with a discussion of yesterdays OSL courses. Seems girls are all doing well.

Coaching-preparation 1:00:00 [0]

Preparing for tomorrows school session. Prepared some new attackpoint map games using the next 3 events. Tried to avoid my own obvious answers this time & threw in some poor choices to elicit better discussion. Then did a 9 control 'score' event map, each on a unique feature to help practice map features. Yeah for Purple Pen -it nicely includes text next to IOF control symbols which I can give to the teacher who will be helping me
