Orienteering race (JIRCS individual) 1:44:39  12.88 km (8:07 / km)
shoes: IceBugs- pair 3
Pretty awful result but to be honest I thought some bits were quite fun even though I was dead majority(all) of the course.
Set off way way too fast with the intention of catching Finn #sucess. 1- long leg good route choice good execution. 2- good again this is where I saw Finn; we split off but met at the control. 3,4,5 all good maybe on a couple some dodgy lines that took us 100m away from the controls but swept them up ok. 6 way way too high but corrected ourselves.
Control 7 was really the tp of the race because at this point I had really used all my energy stupidly and had a tiny bit left in the tank physically. Was going to choose the path route to this control which meant very safe but kinda swerved hesitantly with Finn to a part of the map we were unsure about and had crossed the track + climbed all the contours and more than where we needed to be without knowing. Mucked around a bit found the track again then relocated, at this point Laurence had caught us and my head was somehwere else tbh.
Ran far too low for 8 but felt like a complete robot just following.
Going to 9 Finn kept trying to pull me along but I just stopped and lay down for a bit and he went. 2/3 times on the way I took a sit and felt like fainting #pussy.
From then on it was just a walk/ jog when I felt like I could and quite a few more 18 boys and girls just passed me. Almost binned it after 9 but thought ile finish it to see if I can maybe go back to normal. Saw Finn again going to 13 having done the exact same thing as me so we just jogged it in.
Very Very bad fitness.
