Orienteering warm up/down 40:00 
Was probably about 40mins warm up and down for the two races, including jogging 2km to the first start.
Orienteering race 18:54  *** 2.3 km (8:13 / km) +55m 7:20 / km
SHUOC chasing sprint Prologue - The Edge Campus
(obv. the distance is more because i didn't go straight line!)
Had the 5th fastest time on the womens open which i was quite surprised about considering my run was a bit of a disaster. I compared splits with Sabine and found it was the long route choice legs i lost the most time on. I did well on the shorter more technical parts of the course though, and was quite shocked to have some similar times on legs. I think i'm improving at that 'changing direction ultrasprint' style of o'ing. Lost about 1:30 mins i think - something like that.
4-5 was awful and i didn't realise there was an uncrossable wall until i got there and then i went back the other way when i should have continued down the hill, but i didn't see there was a gap! so i ended up going all the way to the top of the road/hill :(
11-12 i went down the wrong little path because i wasn't counting them off
12-13 more of the same, didn't count the buildings off and got confused where i was
20-21 whoops started to run to 22!
Realised that when i make a choice to stick with it even if i see a better route after i've set off, and to always be in contact with the map!!
Orienteering race 23:28  *** 3.0 km (7:49 / km) +80m 6:54 / km
Final - University of sheffield Main Campus
Set off much too quickly i think! Felt really sick as well because there wasn't enough time between the races for my food to digest properly. Annoyed that i couldn't catch Jess up and that i got caught up myself, my legs just felt dead. Was going as well as i could have until 18 when i got really tired and lost concentration and made some pretty stupid mistakes in the last part of the course. I didn't enjoy this race as much, but it was proably because i was running too fast to be able to navigate, and that is what i like best. I think i needed to read my descriptions for control 25 too! whoops, went all the way up the steps when it was at the bottom of the hill!
Need to do some longer interval sessions i think, so that i can sustain my pace because i just couldn't keep running, and it is frustrating to be slow in a sprint race!! :)
