Orienteering race 1:20:00 [4] 10.0 km (8:00 / km)

Easter Day 3 - 64min
Pretty early start because of Fridays mispunch meant I was lonely out in the forest.
Made some silly errors around the first butterfly. Apart from that I just struggled to push the pace in the mid section.
Had a lot of fun out there though. Rock formations were crazy and had some nice oringen feelings over the weekend.

Orienteering race 1:45:00 [5] 17.0 km (6:11 / km)

Easter Day 2 - long distance 93min
Didn't go in with high hopes, but I had an open mind and decided pussying out on the pace wasn't an option.
Started pretty steady with not much trouble. Took the wide route right along the track on the long leg.
Started to lose little bits of time on the return journey not being precise enough.
Must have got tired because I didn't watch my compass carefully losing ~ 2-3min on the coughs stuff.
That's my only disappointment though, and am pretty pleased seeing a result after pushing myself the whole way.

Orienteering race 55:00 [4]

Easter Day 1
A relatively smooth race, but didn't have the strength in the terrain.
Lost 1min on 9(?) overrunning on the cliff line above. A frustrating error after identifying this as the thing to avoid doing.
Another chunk of time lost running past 12(?). Just misread the map and was looking for a small crevice in the ground.
Had a lot of fun on course though. A bit disappointed with the result but I can't ask for much with my forest srength at the moment.

Event: Easter 2014
12 PM

Orienteering race 40:00 [4] 5.0 km (8:00 / km)

Easter prologue
My curse strikes again: 13.15... Mispunch
Punched the women's control on the dam near #2.
Not too unhappy with the result - I was quite smooth and felt like I had another gear in the legs, just couldn't unleash in the forest. The splits are encouraging as well.
As for the mp, after my last 3 big sprint races resulting in mispunches I need to do some work on the technique.
