orienteering race 36:15 [5] 7.7 km (4:42 / km) +30m 4:37 / km

The highlight of my orienteering year despite the not so good result. Amazing experience, lining up with forty other people, some less fit but the vast majority just as or fitter than me. Most undoubtedly all more technically competent... Set off hard and with the short gaffle was immediately in the lead tailing the long legged Swedish jwoc winner:L after control three I had two different baffles but was amazed to find myself not too far off at six. Caught up at seven when he made a slight miss and was once again in the short leading group of three. This was short lived however after a ~30 second mistake put me right down into fifteenth or something... Where I could normally run through people I was making up no ground on most after this and a couple big mistakes put me well off the pace. The high pressure racing was so enjoyable though and has got me totally psyched for the winter and next year:L

orienteering race 1:25:00 [5] 13.0 km (6:32 / km) +50m 6:25 / km

A very poor long race, first couple clean and then was just making minimal sense of the map. Furthest I have ever been down on a course:L not proud but was a great race to be a part of and some good things to take from it.

OK up until through spectator just some big hesitations. Then big 180° error which cost a minute and a half:L From there I lost a bit of motivation and just got back in. Didn't feel like I was pushing really hard at any point though and feeling good for tomorrow!!
