I love what I'm seeing with your new focused approach to training. Don't forget that some of your runs / training sessions have a purpose other than improving physically or technically. You need recovery runs (physical and mental) that should expressly be taken slow, easy, and relaxed as much as you need intervals and other quality sessions. These allow your muscles and your mind to recovery. Sometimes it's also very beneficial to just relax and have a session that your purely enjoy that reminds you why you love orienteering and how that makes it worth pushing through the rest of the time.

Yes haha! I'll try and add that in more meaningfully! I've just got this habit now that if I can push at the end, then I do. Im just trying to kind of steer my running by how I feel. Like tomorrow, I'm going to do a long run, and get on a map, so I'll take most of it easy, (I'll probably push a bit on the map if I can) and then take it easy back home.
