Scottish 6 days analysis
Physical fitness is there, this I proved on day 5 on the 2nd half, and on many long legs, and also on uphill legs where my leg position is well above my average leg position.
However sometimes I don't push as hard as necessary and plod
Technical: Very rusty, I can do the basics but often don't even do that and just wing it.
Repeated errors: - not simplifying in complex areas and picking out key features, just running in and hoping
- poor compass bearings, often off to the left/maintaining too much height but not always.
- Not regularly following the routine or talk-o
Very pleased with physical shape but need to do more level 5 sessions to find my limit as don't really know how hard I can push.
Need to go back to the basics technically, and really work on developing a routine so that I can recognise when I am no longer concentrating.
All in all a good fun week, vastly increased my motivation to improve my orienteering and come back in May 2018. A bit gutted that i'll never go to World Uni's, but oh well.
