Orienteering (pic + direction courses) 54:25 [2] 5.81 km (9:22 / km) +272m 7:35 / km
shoes: Inov8 Mudclaw 300 #2

practised downhill running techniques while doing some complicated control description exercise that i still dont understand but somehow still managed to do it better than alex.
picture course was not nice, too many tussocks so could barely run and had to do the course backwards cos alex was doing it forward (not happy about that) which meant my first control was straight up the hill. learned on that course that dan cant navigate (sorry dan) but he can definitely run, also crunched my ankle near the end but ran it off on the path on the way back.
direction course wasn't too bad, ambled around it with daisy while we complained the whole time about how tired we were and how we didn't want to do the score, was also very hungry and didnt complete the course cos lunch > running.

Orienteering (45 min score) 42:13 [3] 5.03 km (8:24 / km) +188m 7:04 / km
shoes: Inov8 Mudclaw 300 #2

very tiring, went round with emma and daisy and i think we made a pretty good route by stopping still at the start and planning before running off. bit slow to begin with on the hills but gained speed along some of the paths especially at the end, emma decided to be a bit of a meanie and ran off halfway through leaving me and daisy behind for a few minutes but mine and daisys elite route choice (+ emmas bad nav skills) meant we caught her up at the next control. absolutely pegged it to the last control cos we weren't sure if we'd have time (rip to daisys ankle) but my genius decision to crawl through the dog gate at the end meant i didnt have to climb up the stile and waste more time - probably the fastest ive ever ran at a training session ngl but it was very fun
