Orienteering warm up/down 15:00 [2]

A bit of a rush

Orienteering race 31:00 [4] 5.2 km (5:58 / km) +45m 5:43 / km
shoes: Yellow Inov8

BUCs relays.
One mistake again, on the leg I had identified again. Ran along a path when i thought i was in the ride & so ended up in the wrong block of forest & got caught back up by the pack who I had gotten away from. Once again I was having a beast of a run until that point. I need to solve this navigation issue quickly - plan plan plan. I cannot just run at any point, especially not these more difficult legs.

Orienteering warm up/down 30:00 [2]

Orienteering race 1:03:00 [4] 9.5 km (6:38 / km) +280m 5:47 / km
shoes: Yellow Inov8

Not sure what to make of this race. On the one hand I am so dissappointed with my result because looking at the splits I was 3rd until almost the very end, but on the other hand I now have that confidence to know that I can physically do it if I cut out these silly mistakes. I am so pleased with myself that I was doing well over such a hilly course, where as last year this was my major weakness :) Improvements!
Aah it is so frustrating, I had identified no. 19 as the control I needed to be careful on & yet i still ended up in the wrong gullies. I know it is because I had stopped too short on the previous control & then tried to run too fast for this leg.
Also that was the first point on the course that i had really come into contact with any other runners.
At least there are plenty more important races to come that I can improve for. Feeling really good & positive for the next few weeks ahead, bring it on :)

5 x 1.5km ish courses on Gullane run as trains with hollie, jet & chloe. Good for some added pressure. Felt like i was running well & mostly hitting the navigation, good confidence booster & preperation for the JK. Took some good route choices i think. Then ran back along the beach in the glorious sunshine :) was amazing views, i loved it. An awesome training session.
