Orienteering 30:00  3.0 mi (10:00 / mi)
Jogging, warm up, down etc.
This was a target race, plan was to cruise the quali and race the final.
Unfortunately, stuffed up in a trap in the quali (-1min), then couldn't find a flag hidden in a map error (-30). would have been OK in either of the other heats, but not mine :(
Ran hard and fairly clean in the tricky B-final to win by 2min (1:30 over the M45s). Felt that run would have been worth a medal. Bugger.
Objectively, I ran in the race, stuffed up, and finished way back. In a sane format that would be that. But no matter how much I deserved to fail for sh*y navigation, the fact is I actually lost out on the 1 in 3 chance of being in the wrong heat, which leaves a sore taste.
maybe I'll get my reward in ranking points - but since they never managed to sort that out last year I won't hold my breath.
