Orienteering 1:20:21 [3] 8.91 km (9:01 / km) +466m 7:09 / km
ahr:139 max:164

What a total balls up. I now know racing with people isn't my strength. I either over cook it or slow down to wait for other peoples help.
Number 1 total cock up. 8mins
Number 4 I should have run harder but I was just pissed off by then. I caught Andis Vitolins at the control which gave me a reason to try again (he started 2 mins ahead). From then on myself, Andis and Sydney Fisher (W21) ran together but it didn't help me.
Number 5 2mins. Wrong knoll.
Number 8 I tried to breakaway and didn't see a footpath on the map. When I got to it on the ground it completely threw me. The results show 5mins of mistakes. I think over 6.
Number 9 I was 50m short of it and just walked about frustrated. 3-4mins.

Ultimately, I was too worried/ distracted by others and should have just gone it alone. The start didn't help though. That was all my own doing. I approached 1 great but then didn't run far enough off the footpath and came up short looking for it.

Orienteering 30:41 [3] 3.71 km (8:16 / km) +138m 6:58 / km

Cool down. Stupid idea. Went looking for dibber. I could have been there all year and never have found it. I should have re-run the days course.

Running 1:05:28 [3] 8.0 km (8:11 / km)

Good run, terrible result!. Lost my SI card between 7 and 8. Ran clean until 8 (3min mistake at 6). Then when I went to 8 I realised I'd lost my dibber. Manual punched the rest of the course but still DQ'd. Very happy with the performance came 5th with 6 mins of errors and I'm nowhere near fit. Looking forward to tomorrow.

Stayed in Acton. Didn't want to face the drive over to Mt. Tom just for a 2k model course. Getting there early tomorrow to do it.

Running 54:04 [3] 12.13 km (4:27 / km) +35m 4:24 / km
ahr:152 max:179

Threshold session on White Oak. 15mins, 3x3mins, 10mins. I changed it up a tad as I wanted to do the Egbert bridge Strava segment. Wanted to see exactly how far behind I am compared to January. Turns out a full minute. That's how it felt too. I lumbered around today. Jan. 14 I did it in 12:28. 13:34 today. Bit of a worry really. Still travel to Mark's tomorrow and get ready for Troll Cup. I just want a decent run on one of the days.
