better!! still not perfect with a 3 min loss at #2 just not picking up the path in the green and hesitant in the circle and a silly minute loss near the end racing another girl (she followed me tho so all was fine). Didn’t feel very confident so wasn’t running as hard as i should’ve but big improvement today!

Fin5 #4
Made sure i concentrated to #1 and thought i was too high but then crossed the path by a boulder (wasn’t mapped) and the only boulder on the path was right on line for my control so was buzzing. Then took a good bearing from it as well but then couldn’t find my control in the green and was so confused? turns out my dad did the same thing lol. Took 15 mins to find it after lots of wandering round trying to relocate off all these boulders.

Decided to just walk and jog the rest and got them all fine. Actually focussed on my nav and i’m not even bothered about number one because i did alright for the rest even if it was just jogging. It was good training and i’m happy with it.

After yesterday I was just glad to even get out of bed and get orienteering in the sun and i couldn’t care less at this point that i keep messing up. Like obviously i want to do well but lately my heads not been in a good place so not surprising i can’t concentrate at the start of any race. I know it probably won’t make sense to many people but i’m just trying to stay positive and i’m just glad i got myself out of the door, to the start and eventually to the finish!

Fin5 #2
set off steady as to not blow 1 again. Then made sure to take a good bearing to #2 but took me forever to reach the path (not used to the scale - 1:15000) so assumed i had drifted too far left and was by the reenrrant to the left of the control when actually i was perfect, lols. 3 mins lost here but i actually relocated pretty well but faffed about a bit getting there. Literally was dying going to #3 and was a grind round because leggies are tired AF.
