Orienteering race 1:19:00 [3] 18.0 km (4:23 / km) +675m 3:42 / km
shoes: Inov-8 X-Talon 225 #2

POM day 4 chasing start long (20th)
Another good performance. My legs were so knackered I could only manage a relatively steady pace.
Felt very out of place in the start lane with Andreas Kyburz starting 13s behind.
I was slow to start, taking a sub optimal route to 1.
Got caught by 3 guys or maybe I caught them, who knows. Gradually broke away on the long leg to 8?
Caught again by Ville? after some hesitation on 14
And spent the rest of the race gradually working away again to finish just ahead. (and Andreas never caught me!)
Really pleased with my races this weekend and hope to return next year as its such a great competition (and the weather is perfect)
Also need to come back for Megan to run without blisters.

Note

Up all night being ill, must have over done it..

POM day 3 - Middle (24th)
Pushed the pace today.
A couple of errors again (~60s) but overall a much better performance than yesterday and way higher on the results list!

Orienteering 13:52 [3] 3.5 km (3:58 / km) +90m 3:31 / km

POM night sprint - Portel (6th)
Legs feeling tired now but still managed a good run - 1 careless mistake.
The race wasn’t quite as inspiring as Monsanto ‘13 but still good fun.
