Orienteering event race 47:00 [3] 5.4 km (8:42 / km) +150m 7:39 / km
shoes: Inov8oroc280

Not happy with my race, finished 7th. Pretty disappointed with my overall carnival results. Not sure if I'll go to Europe now and just do the public jwoc races or if I'll give it a miss all together.

Orienteering event 1:16:00 [3] 7.2 km (10:33 / km) +150m 9:34 / km
shoes: Inov8oroc280

Probably too soon to start thinking about the negatives of today but may as well get them out of the way..
Mistake 1 was letting stress get to me and affect me
Mistake 2 not controlling my thoughts out on the course. Lost focus and couldnt regain it.
Mistake 3 not reading the detail in the control circles because I wasn't focusing
Mistake 4 not sticking to my bearings and panicking when I couldn't find the control
The only positive I can take away from this race is that I finished. A year ago I would have given up after number 9 (my nearly 25 minute mistake) but today I stuck it out to the end.

Orienteering event 35:36 [4] 4.3 km (8:17 / km) +170m 6:55 / km
shoes: Inov8oroc280

Much better race. Was smashing it at the start coming first until the fifth control. Lost 30 seconds on controls 5 and 7 and then lost a minute on number 8. Beside that was okay. Not as clean as I would have liked and I need to work on my flow a bit but I'm pretty happy with 5th today (two minutes behind lanita who won). There's always room for improvement but even with my mistakes it's nice to know I'm not far off the pace :)

Not happy with my run at all but just have to be positive and make sure it doesn't happen again. Finished 9th.
