Orienteering race 34:59 [5] *** 5.61 km (6:14 / km) +170m 5:25 / km
spiked:17/19c shoes: inov8 ORoc 340

Irish Relay Champs on Leim Oirthair, 5.1km course. Was running first leg in the mens premier, first time I had ran the mens premier before. Was good to be running in the pack. Orienteering was relatively easy, more of a physical test really. Ended up about 50m or so down on the pack when I got a bit confused at 14 but other than that I was with the pack the whole time. Really fun race though. Handed over to Dad and then Harry ran the third leg, to make the Millar team!

Orienteering race 1:18:01 [4] *** 9.76 km (8:00 / km) +245m 7:06 / km
27c shoes: inov8 ORoc 340

Irish Long distance on Lough An Cogair, course was 8.5km. Really wanted to have a clean run on this course more than anything but I didn't have a great start, which seems to be a regular occurrence these days.. One was good but then going to 2 I got a bit confused if I was in the right re-entrant losing about 30s. Lost another 20s going to 3 when I went to the wrong boulder. 4 was good was able to bomb it down to the pond. Lost about 30s going to 5 when I went to the wrong depression filled with boulders.. Going to 6 I must have ran within 5m of the control as I preceded to head to a different re-entrant, lost about 3mins! 7 was easy but my nose started to bleed on the way to it and continued to bleed until 11, which was a bit distracting. However, my orienteering started to get a bit better now, 7 was good as was 8, then bombed it down the hill to 9. 10 was handy enough. Bombed it across to 11 for a cheeky spike. 13 through to 17 were clean. 18 and 19 were clean. 20 was good then got a bit confused on the way to 21 so was a bit hesitant. Spotted Cillin on the way to 23 so that was a bit of an incentive to push a bit harder. 24 still chasing down Cillin on the way round the hill, could also see dad heading over the hill too. Then dropped down and got a nice lead into the control from Dad, but was still a bit hesitant on the approach to the control. Caned it across to 25 went to the wrong side of the boulder which was a bit annoying but didn't read my descriptions properly. Across to 26 was a bit of a pain going back up the hill, then bombed it down to 27 and finish. So had a real nice end of the course but before that I was a bit crap really. Was just really scrappy and doing stupid things.. My fitness isn't the problem anyway because I wasn't feeling tired really. Definitely could have pushed harder. Overall lost about 4 and a half minutes overall..

Orienteering race 28:20 [4] *** 4.39 km (6:27 / km) +90m 5:51 / km
spiked:9/13c shoes: inov8 ORoc 340

Irish Middle Distance on Cnoc Mham na mBo, course was 3.6km. Went off a bit too slow wanting to get it right. 1st control was nice, 2nd was alright went past it a it but lost maybe 20s. Going to 3 I probably could have pushed harder, with the massive re-entrant pretty close to the control. Then I was a bit too high losing about a minute. 4 was grand then there was the long leg to 5 which I realised straight away that there wasn't much to guide you into the control. However I managed to pick up the weird boulder/crag and the triangle of boulders going for a spike until I stopped 5m from the control to look about there... Lost a minute. Then bombed it to 6 because of the mistake only to make another mistake which cost me a minute and a half on a short leg. Then bombed the rest of the course, Niall caught me at 7 so I was going for it trying to drop him. Had plenty of energy left at this stage because I sprinted the rest of the course. Suckish performance.
