Orienteering race 36:05 [5] 5.2 km (6:56 / km) +190m 5:52 / km

A real shame that both the long and middle champs this year have been a fell race rather than a test of navigation. I enjoyed the run and worked hard after the first part in the slight technical area. I dropped about 20 seconds (mostly on #9 through hesitation on the RC and not reading my control descriptions) on the whole course so am happy how that went but I would never have troubled the podium. Pleasing to still be able to push myself at the end so i'm not in bad running shape.

Orienteering race 12:40 [3] 2.2 km (5:45 / km) +30m 5:23 / km
shoes: Asics ds skyspeed 2

Took this as just above the pace of a steady run and tried to get the nav right. Made an error near the end going into the last area but knowing that Rog hadn't caught me up, stayed nice and steady to the end.
3 PM

Orienteering race 12:08 [5] 2.0 km (6:04 / km) +30m 5:39 / km
shoes: Asics ds skyspeed 2

I thought this was a great course on a good area, it kept you on your toes for the first half and i couldn't plan ahead as i would have liked to at times.
Almost got caught out at #1 only dropping about 10 seconds. Lost a bit more time navigating towards #5 rather than #4, it was still a feasible route but not the optimal one.
Generally ok for the next few before i was able to flow nicely and work hard just before the spectator control. Hit it hard to the end and managed to get myself on the podium.
It was nice to be able to race and be tired from working hard, rather than being unfit.
