Orienteering race 1:06:24  *** 9.37 km (7:05 / km) +100m 6:44 / km
14c shoes: VJ Bold 9
Not great, need a bit of a break for my head + body.
Mentally, needed to push myself more but also need to get back into good orienteering habits/new technique after reverting back to the old over the weekend. Generalising and simplifying then visualising, reading the contours, exit features and working backwards with routes.
Physically, knees were sore from about 10mins into warm up, and just got worse and worse as I kept falling on them. Fell about 3 times on the way to the first control and it didn't stop there. Maybe I let this distract me a bit but also I think I just need to let them recover properly. Need to build up strength through the terrain.
But basically lost time in the circle for most of the first half, and over ran #4 by a bit, then was behind and thought I was way further than I was, let myself get into a slow speed then actually got super far behind.
But as always things to learn from this, though I am going to make sure I recover properly before the weekend.
