VOC - Race 3 - Vienna University (Prater Campus) - 1st Ahh loved this area. Really fast flat running interspersed with little technical bits. I think I nailed the route choices & really went for it on the nice long legs. Apart from taking a slightly dodgy direction leaving 3 I don’t think there were too many more seconds to save - chuffed with that

Sprint relay - absolutely knackered, had major leg burn already like 1 minute in :,-( Really top weekend though. Would 10/10 recommend for sprint fans.

VOC - race 2 - Türkenschanzpark - 2nd Another really fun area. Super tricky control pick to start (came out of this 10s down on Ursula), then into the park for faster route choice legs. Missed some of the microroute choices & died on the steep banks, but managed to pull back up to equal time by the run through (2/3 of the way round the course). Struggled physically in the last 5mins though (it was a long sprint) dropping some seconds on the hill & also when I got stuck in a bush 25-26! Pretty satisfied though. Starting to see similar themes with the areas I need to work on technically which was the aim of the weekend.

Vienna O Challenge - Race 1 - Donau City / Park - 1st Really cool area with lots of different parts requiring different orienteering techniques. Aim was to read my descriptions and not set off anywhere without a full plan & I’m pretty happy with the execution (although I had lots of small 2-3s time losses where I wasn’t fully on top of planning ahead which frustrate me, but I’m glad I’m no longer satisfied with a ‘good’ race). I definitely bleed time in these twisty stair-filled areas. Did have one big mistake when I was knackered at the end & missed the passage way to 16. Knew the control was on the floor below but there was no way down from where I popped out & I wasn’t sure what I’d done or where I was. According to the splits I lost 40(?!!) seconds to Ursula Kadan on this leg, eek. Not good. Need to focus right to the end. Luckily everyone else made some big errors too & i was running just a tiny bit faster.
