Event: Djouce Woods
12 PM

Running warm up/down 4:15 [1] 0.6 km (7:02 / km)

Orienteering 39:22 [5] 5.8 km (6:47 / km) +300m 5:24 / km

Djouce local event.
Raced hard, and tried to treat it like a middle distance.
Started hard, and felt I was moving well. But started struggling from 7 on, as expected with the fast start.

Lost a bit on 3, deciding to stay a bit high and go left, but quickly decided the open wouldn't be very crossable, right decision in the moment, but then climbing up from the trail I was just a little scrappy - 20s.
Lost a bit of time to Ruairi descending in general it looks like, would explain 4 & 5 which felt good, no mistakes there.
Caught & passed Aonghus at 5, and was strong up to 6, decent to 7, but not quite as fluid as I'd like.
Struggled a lot on the straight climb to 8, based on Laurence's route, maybe around would have been better, or some in between.
Hesitant on 9 as I wasn't confident it was the right track, maybe 10-15s but not more.
Good to 10. Lost a bit on 11, just cut up too early, kept confident and moved along, but lost maybe 20s in shite that could have been avoided. Small hesitancy on 12, and rough final climb, but in general the rest was fine.

Decent run, but not exactly the trickiest, can't take it too seriously.
Was behind roar at 5 which surprised me after the hard start, but do think I lost time descending in and out of 4. May need to be looked at a bit, but ankle tape would give a lot more confidence to start.
Strength is good, but need a few more races and still some work to do.

Running 7:20 [1] 1.01 km (7:17 / km) +50m 5:50 / km
