Orienteering race (Wimbledon Night O) 54:29 [4] 8.96 km (6:05 / km) +80m 5:49 / km
shoes: VJ IROC O-shoes

Shocker! This is by far and away my technically worst race I can remember. Far too many errors to go in to, but the numbers say it all... 11th in the results and 8.96k over a 6.1k course!
Looking back, I have mainly myself to blame:
A) I tried to run the direct aggressive style of last Saturday on a map clearly not suited to this... And when that failed, I only tried it even harder to make up time
B) At no point before/ during/ after the race was I truely focused. No flow at all and never felt "at one" with the map
I'm really mad at myself. Enough said. Moving on
