Orienteering 1:05:14  7.0 km (9:19 / km) +50m 9:00 / km
SOL 6 Forvie
Felt absolutely awful out there today, could not breathe or get running at all. Don't know why i felt so bad, but i walked a lot of the course.
Was not with it at all. I think i messed up almost every control - really annoyed. I just feel like i can't orienteer at all anymore, which i know isn't true really.
Got myself racing & distracted once again & lost easily 5mins + in the first part of the course just wondering around trying to relocate. Then i made the decision that i didn't care how long i took but that i was going to get it right. I stopped myself for 1min to refocus & then jogged the next 4 controls making sure i had a proper route, & an AP & a compass bearing. It worked :) I found them all. yes slowly but idc!
Then i tryed to convey this into racing in the last tricky section && got them spot on - whoop!
So i really do need to work on the navigation side & not slip back into old alice techniques of running randomly & hoping. this is never a good thing!
