Latvian World Cup Relay. Running 3rd leg in a composite team with Anina Brunner (Switzerland) and Amanda Falcke-Weber (Denmark).

My first leg runner came in 3rd, and my second leg runner was around 10th, so I was extremely nervous at the beginning. I went off way too fast, and #1 I compassed in the complete wrong direction from the saddle and was searching in the green next to the wrong gully with the girl from Lithuania.

Went fine to #2, but then on #3 I chose to approach the control from above instead of going around the spur to the left, and of course I missed the control to the right. Found one of the other gaffles then relocated to my own.

Went OK from #4 to #8 other than being slightly high on #6. I had run past part of the bobsleigh track on the way to #8 and assumed that was where #9 was located - but it was actually on the part of the track several contours up. Should have read the map instead of just assuming.

The last loop went fine, but I'd already lost too much time. Disastrous run - could have gone much better if I'd slowed down and got #1 cleanly, then I wouldn't have been so rattled for the rest of the race (and might have had a chance of holding on to some of the pack).

Latvian World Cup Middle Distance.

Started well enough. Took the track to the left on #1, and got quite pushed around by the green on the way to #2 but found the control cleanly. Caught the French girl who started before me.

Took the track on the left to #3 to avoid the green, but then allowed the French girl to push me off course on the way to #4 and went way too wide. I knew I was doing it, too, which was the worst part. Got caught by the girl who started after me.

Went around to the left of the hill on #5 to avoid the green, but then was too low and missed the control. Found a Ukranian girl coming back from the men's control.

Clean on #6 through #11, but then on #12 I decided to follow the pack down the wrong gully (again I knew I hadn't gone far enough, but I doubted myself). Relocated fairly quickly once the control didn't appear, and caught up with one of the Hong Kong girls.

Clean through the rest apart from a daft route choice to #15 where I wussed out and went all the way around a track instead of just straight down the slope. Managed to get #18 cleanly because I came at it from the track - seems like a lot of people lost time there.

Overall not a great run. Just drives home how I lack confidence and concentration.

Orienteering 38:20 [2] 3.64 km (10:32 / km) +150m 8:44 / km

Walk / jogging around the model event. White bits of forest are really nice, green bits are thick but not impenetrable. Contours seem to make sense.

ahr:136 max:164

Slightly easier turbo session. Lots of frustrations because the trainer wouldn't connect to Zwift, so I did half of one GCN session and then when I ran out of gears and couldn't adjust the resistance on the trainer I gave up and did another session entirely.

Jogging long 2:45:01 [3] 31.1 km (5:18 / km) +524m 4:54 / km
ahr:143 max:166

Full loop of Ladybower, Derwent & Howden reservoirs. Cut the corner between the western end of Ladybower and Derwent by going over the top of the hill past Hagg Farm. Ended up having to do an extra 10min at the end, so maybe should have cut down a bit more sharply.

Beautiful day for it. Ran a pretty casual pace today, didn't feel quite as strong as the last two weeks, found the hills a bit more challenging. Felt OK though, until about 2:20 when I hit a little bit of a wall. Got through it though!
