Running 1:08:56 [2] 9.2 km (7:30 / km) +155m 6:55 / km
ahr:147 max:174 shoes: IOV8 - Roclite 290

Easy run in the sun with a 10 year old orienteering map.

Did 10 controls from an old blue course instead of the planned long run as I have only just got over the illness. 7

Vegetation had changed a lot in places but I enjoyed the challenge of using brown features in a fairly flat area. I also really enjoyed the challenge of no control kites or compass.

Managed to find majority of controls a couple on vegetation boundaries were impossible.

Seem to have come down with a rather awful flu. Probably explains why the event on Wednesday felt so physically tough!

Wednesday Feb 20 #

Orienteering Racing race 1:08:13 [4] 11.5 km (5:56 / km)
ahr:162 max:183 shoes: IOV8 - Roclite 290

MLS Bulford Ridge - Brown

Physically tough course. I felt pretty exhausted from quite early on and my navigation was not as good as it should have been. My main aim today was to focus on flow in and out of the control.

First error came at number 3 - over shot the area of wood and chose a rather green way back to the control.

Route choice was poor at 15 leading to missing the control. I thought it was in a shallow depression but was in fact on a path. Highlighted the importance of using the control descriptions.

19 to 20 I missed a small path marked on the map which could have saved me 2 minutes and lot of energy!

Some good lessons learnt. Definitely need to get the balance between moving fast into and out of the control but also checking the small detail on the map and improving my route choice.

Back in the lab for some testing

HIIT work out

3*4* ( 20sec hard, 10sec easy) 1min rest

HIIT was a bit short for me.

Intresting to find out my current body fat % - 6.59%. Slightly lower than I was expecting.
