running warm up/down 17:56 [2] 2.39 km (7:30 / km) +32m 7:02 / km
shoes: Inov8 Oroc 280


orienteering race 1:04:37 [3] 4.33 km (14:55 / km) +137m 12:53 / km
shoes: Inov8 Oroc 280

Wasn't in the right head space from the start to be honest, not really concentrating. Scraped through the first few with scrappy nav and then had bad mistakes at 5- just crap bearing and line and didn't read any of the ground at all, 6- got distracted by some people and didn't have a plan at all, just ran and didn't even read that I had to cross the path, then panicked once I realised and wasted even more time in the circle.
Decided I needed to calm down so took a good bearing to 7, crossing the path perfectly in line and then just couldn't find it whatsoever, it felt too far from the ditch and path but I just couldn't read the contours. I ran around the entire slope for about 10-15 mins, then started shaking as I was so nervous and knew that I had messed it up completely. Decided to walk up the slope thinking about missing 7 out, then found the path junction and then walked to 7 as I wanted to actually see where it was. Took me about 24 mins to find 7. Then walked up the hill to 8 but started shaking even more and started throwing up lots of water. I was mentally gone by then and felt so sick, so I walked back to the finish whilst continuing to throw up along the way.
Feeling extremely mentally drained at the moment. Now its time to assess what went wrong and why, and to mentally prepare for tiomila.

Did awful, wasn't running quick enough and messed up #9- took the wrong route choice anyways and then faffed around and got stuck in a courtyard thing and didn't know where I was. Awful written all over it... BOF chances and that are probs completely gone now :)

biking 15:43 [3]
shoes: Inov8 x-talons (blue/pink)

Biking down to the football pitches but it was packed cos about 3 matches going on so had to go in the field next to the river.

running warm up/down 5:11 [2] 1.01 km (5:08 / km) +4m 5:02 / km
shoes: Inov8 x-talons (blue/pink)

Ditched bike under a tree in the field and then tried to find the nicest ground to do my intervals on. Was quite wet and uneven and also had a constant flow of people with dogs. Stroked a cute dog and saw a lass miserable and smoking by the river and then the police took her... all happening today.

running intervals 6:31 [3] 1.26 km (5:10 / km) +4m 5:05 / km
shoes: Inov8 x-talons (blue/pink)

Was meant to be doing 5min tempo then 5x400m but binned the tempo cos ground was awful and would've ended up running shuttle runs on the flattest part. Ended up doing 3x400m (40s) cos was feeling sick after a heavy dinner and there was a lot of dodgy people hanging around, didn't want the bike to get nicked!!!
