Big Jon:
can be hard when you've spent the past month grinding yourself down. Don't be hard on yourself (mentally) and make sure you get plenty of recovery before starting winter training.

True it’s been a tough few months but I think I’m not very good at using all my energy in a race, especially running but a bit orienteering too.

Thats probably why you orienteer so cleanly and consistently - you aren't going balls out with massive oxygen debt - its a real bonus to learn to do that while still a junior :-) Took me a long time to work it out!

Well said, Jon.

I’d agree, definitely don’t want to go as far into the red when orienteering as you also need to be navigating. I want to experiment with being closer to the line though.

Overspeed training is some of the most effective you can do. If you never cross the line you won't know how close to the line you can safely get.
