Orienteering (Middle) 56:49 [3] 8.31 km (6:50 / km) +205m 6:05 / km
shoes: Inov8 oroc 280

Not really sure what my head was like going into this...but it definitely wasn't into it...

3: Forced to relocate off the road, had tried to use the vegetation going in but it didn't work.
4: Went way too far to the south of 4 and ended up on the other road. Huge mistake...
5: Little bit confused in this area...
7: Thought that I had hit the ridge perfectly and used it as an attackpoint into the control. A lot more green here and vegetation is everywhere. Ended up using Brad coming out of 8 to find 7.
10: Too far south and placed around there a bit...
11-12: Should have taken these a lot slower and focused on the orienteering.
13: Too far south and confused the ridges.
14: Stopped too early on the hill and then relocated from there.

Overall a pretty terrible race. My head wasn't in it and I haven't been able to concentrate while orienteering for a while. It is quite worrying... I was definitely able to concentrate a lot better on sunday while doing the red course and a bit of the blue course.

Worst of all I rolled my ankle again... not very much colour coded orienteering planned for the next few months. My base training starts this week and I need to start working on my speed. With world games only 14 weeks away I can't afford to be an idiot...

Running race (Time Trial 3) 9:47 [3] 3.0 km (3:16 / km)
shoes: Inov8 Flite 195

Spent an hour and a half in traffic and so had to run the 3000m in the dark with the aid of Sarah's headlamp :P. Not the nicest track with very thick grass and I struggled to see the outline (it was red on the green field).

Was an interesting experience ;). Not as fast as last time, but I haven't done very much speed training at all because of my last block (had to make up time for when I went away to Portugal). I am now back into base training and will slowly build up to World Games (hopefully) in August.
