Tuesday Feb 13 #

1 AM

road run 15:00 [2] 1.0 km (15:00 / km)

Warm up
2 AM

orienteering race 59:20 [5] 6.8 km (8:44 / km)

POM Long S. Bartolomeu do Outeiro Ammonteio 64/94 CD 59.30, CK 51.47, MS 43.09, CH 33.37 2nd
Late start and a hot day the only bad performance of the week. Good run on long easy first leg, but map reading error at 2 (2 mins), then small mistakes at technical 4 &.5 (each 2mins), losing confidence. Got back into race going to 6 but missed control in diffuse area and panicked. Lost 5 mins on what should have been a simple relocation and left for 7 in wrong direction. Then all ok but quite slow. Really did not handle change of pace/ accuracy going to 2 well. Perhaps a race too many.
A shame as a bit of a waste of a very good day

Monday Feb 12 #

1 AM

road run 16:00 [2] 1.5 km (10:40 / km)

Warm up
2 AM

orienteering race 28:09 [5] 4.0 km (7:02 / km)

POM Middle S. Bartolomeu do Outeiro Ertuismo 30/99 CD 28.09, CK 27.46, MS 28.29 and CH 20.57 (winner)
Lots and lots of controls all pretty much on rocks, veered quite badly off compass line on only longish leg 2-3 through diffuse area but recovered quite quickly (lost 1+ min). Winsplit also shows another couple of errors but I was always going to make this in this type of orienteering
Complete contrast to Day 2 but another fun run
4 AM

orienteering race (Night, Urban) 14:46 [5] 2.4 km (6:09 / km)

POM night sprint Portel. Ran with big headlight so could read the map
21/51 CD 14.46, MS 15.44, CH 24.03 and CK 12.52 Third!
Very fast (relatively easy) and furious start. Lost 40 secs at control 10 -took wrong alley and had to retrace steps, perhaps a bit of a result from a struggle up the hill. Alas that was a lot of places
Quite suprised/ impressed by quite how much faster CK ran - I need a bit more speed endurance for sprint races

Sunday Feb 11 #

1 AM

road run 20:00 [2] 2.0 km (10:00 / km)

Warm up
2 AM

orienteering race 49:06 [5] 6.9 km (7:07 / km)

POM day 2 Long S. Bartolomeu do Outeiro 32/105 CD 49.06, CK 44.18, CH 40.24 3rd MS 38.12 2nd.
Coped Ok with a long and easy first leg. Just one mistake but 5 mins on a short and easy leg, went over, round better, got onto wrong spur and parallel rocks should have recovered quicker. Afterwards ok (did lose 1min + overshooting next control but hidden in splits as ran there fast.
A really delightful area to run in
