17/18 Ranking Event 6, Attunda OK middle Rösjön, H21 4.8km (21/29)

Better than yesterday, less paths, more contour and rock detail, more interesting.

Ran ok-good technically but it was a bit lucky. Was struggling for focus, especially towards the end. No oxygen problems today but felt tired after running yesterday regardless of a rare, good night's sleep. Probably to be expected after 2 weeks of illness.

So after 6 ranking events it does seem like I have set myself a good target. It's certainly not going to be easy but certainly not impossible either. A few times I could have got 24 points or better by simply making less mistakes. Next up - middle distance on 30th Sep.

Today's ranking points - 36.97...

Back in the game!
10 AM

Running warm up/down (road/xc) 10:50 [2] 1.6 km (6:46 / km)
ahr:140 max:159

Orienteering race (forest) 56:15 [4] 8.7 km (6:28 / km)
ahr:169 max:176

17/18 Ranking Event 5, Attunda OK long Rösjön, H40 7.3km (3/12)

Really fast, residential forest with many paths. Quite detailed in places but still a massive contrast from last week's Tyresta heaven.

I missed 2 by 3.5 minutes, major bummer. I could have been concentrating more but also I think I relied on the paths too much. Nothing made sense from my path junction attack point and I made it worse by not reinforcing my guesswork with the compass. Searching around way West of where I should have been followed by a fairly lenghy reloaction.

Nearing number 8 there was a climb and some tougher terrain and I didn't get my breathing right or the last remnants of my cold or something. Anyway I spent 8-10 fighting off a stitch.

Otherwise a good run, enjoyable at times. Other than 2 a good focus which led to some clever decisions at speed. A bit like sprint orienteering what with so many little paths and junctions.

Today's ranking points - 36.74...
47.27 25/08/17 start
37.93 03/09/17 before event
37.07 16/09/17 after event
24.00 30/06/18 target
