Event: ELO SoSOL
11 AM

Orienteering warm up/down 20:00 [2]

Orienteering race 1:10:00 [4] 9.0 km (7:47 / km) +220m 6:56 / km
shoes: Yellow Inov8

Meant to take this race a bit slower as it was a long run but i just got so into it & was enjoying myself too much that i ended up racing. Nice to do some navigation at race pace. A few sloppy bits where i didn't have APs and came into the dunes too early but mostly very good. Picked out the significant countour features to use & the vegetation. Need to make sure to use compass and visualise a bit more. Loved it.

In so much pain, my back is in a bad state
2 PM

Orienteering warm up/down 30:00 [2]

Orienteering race 17:22 [5] 3.45 km (5:02 / km)
shoes: Trainers

Resonably pleased with race - wanted to run it as if it were a selection. Focused on reading descriptions & knowing what would be around each control site so could flow better. Stupidly this meant I didn't pay attention on 1-2 route choice and ended up in the dead end losing 30secs. The rest went well though. Some small hesitations and silly things like being on the wrong side of walls losing a few seconds here and there. 8-9 also 90degrees wrong.

Basically I felt i was running strongly but need to just sharpen up. Longer legs i need to have planned a route in advance and shorter ones just use my descriptions still and be more aware of directions.
7 PM

Orienteering race 1:06:00 [3] 6.5 km (10:09 / km) +240m 8:34 / km
shoes: Orange Inov8

Slightly hated this race. Was in totally the wrong frame of mind from the beginning, not concentrating or ready to race at all. I knew the routes i wanted to take but never really got there, lacked motivation to push hard and was just wandering around.
Will put this behind me, not my kind of terrain & don't need this negative result to be on my mind.
