Putting controls out for the Wednesday Night Training tonight which I can't make because of an Administrative Law class (yay...). Last night I felt like I could barely shuffle at 5:00/km but this morning I felt super fresh after a nice sleep and a big bowl of pasta last night.
Quite a hilly map, and I know this should be super obvious but all the running training I'm doing has made the hills feel super easy.
Also really feel like I made a breakthrough regarding how to practically fulfill my goal to orienteer with a high level of concentration and focus (because from my experience, just saying to myself that I want to concentrate and focus throughout a course isn't sufficient to actually achieve that goal). I feel like a lot of my navigational mistakes can be pinned on looking at a control as one unit, and over-generalising the way to the control, which leads to lazy orienteering where I don't read a lot of features, and often don't read warning signs if something has gone astray along the way. I feel like a piecemeal strategy to orienteering where controls are broken up into mini-controls along the way necessarily leads to a higher degree of focus in navigation and a lower degree of error.
