Running 15:00 [1] 2.0 km (7:30 / km)
shoes: Inov8 Oroc 280 (July '14)

Orienteering 50:00 [2] 7.0 km (7:09 / km)
shoes: Inov8 Oroc 280 (July '14)

Oringen E5 - H21L.

On the way to the start today I had absolutely no energy.
Jogged to the start kite, and began walking already. Walked to the top of the hill then ran ti number 4. Waited here for Conor, then followed him to 5, which he missed, and I tried to relocate but couldn't really and lost Conor too. Started walking again but picked Conor up on his way to 7 again and followed him to 8.
Then jogged back, but picked up Stina on route and navigated for her to 1 control, then went to the finish.
Less tired as it went on. Woops, maybe should have run it all.
Needed the energy for the football game anyway.

Running 20:00 [1] 3.0 km (6:40 / km)
shoes: Inov8 Oroc 280 (July '14)

Orienteering 1:42:57 [3] 14.0 km (7:21 / km)
shoes: Inov8 Oroc 280 (July '14)

Oringen E4 - H21L.

Still feeling very bad physically.
Started well through the tricky controls, but was looking in the long re-entrant for 2, misread the control location with all the detail. and lost 90s.
Fine through the tricky stuff, but slow, wary of my ankle. After this, I battled along the around route for the long leg.
Got tired and ended up walking 2 or 3 controls. After that it was mostly downhill, so I strided out through the forest a bit and enjoyed the orienteering, but not very fast.
In total maybe lost 4mins today in mistakes, surprised at being anywhere close to people though, legs were empty.

Orienteering 41:50 [5] 6.88 km (6:05 / km) +115m 5:37 / km
shoes: Inov8 Oroc 280 (July '14)

Oringen E3 - H21L.

Skipped day 2 with the ankle, but got back for the middle distance.
Still crazy heat. Nicer map today too, detailed sand dunes, forested in places.
Started well but still energy was low in the heat and the tough sand, camping has tightened many of my muscles too. That ain't great.
Blew 90s on 5, lost a bit of conecentration, then a couple of 30s mistakes further on. Not great navigation, but alright.
Physically struggled around, but so did Conor. Was 6s ahead of him - running the same speed basically.

Oringen stage E1 - H21L.

A full week of running before this, which included a bit too much binging and in particular partying. As a result legs were not in good shape, and with help from the extreme heat, I had no energy to give.
Struggled round the first section and got past by Gene slightly later than I expected given energy levels. Twisted my right ankle shortly afterward, not too bad, kept going. Going into 18 (?) I went over my left one. That was worse, walked back.
