Orienteering warm up/down 25:00 [2]

Orienteering race 1:10:00 [5] 10.3 km (6:48 / km)
shoes: Yellow Inov8

So dissappointed in myself. The one important weekend of the year & I have let myself down big time. Needed a lot more compass work today. Was just little sloppy mistakes. On the positive I felt I was running well & aside from the errors I was very happy with my confidence in the terrain & my contour visualisation. I am going to do a lot more work in the sandunes, since I know I can do them from my Gullane result. Determined to get back to that level *& not let this result put me down, i know i am better than it.

Orienteering warm up/down 30:00 [2]

Orienteering race 40:00 [5] 5.2 km (7:42 / km)
shoes: Yellow Inov8

Gutted doesn't even cover it. Was having an amazing run & made one tiny error (20secs or so) which just threw me, then tried to go too quickly. No. 14 found a control which must have been on the rootstock next to mine, paniced & then dropped a lot of places.
Really really angry at myself. I know i am capable of running a similar speed to everyone else, I just do stupid things like this. It has never been a problem before so I don't know why it has begun now.
