Orienteering race 1:04:05 [4] ***

SOL1 Dalrulzion
Short Brown
1 - Got a bit confused by scale, unmapped green and the lack of feature for the control
2,3 - Took these slower after getting confused at 1
4,5,6,7,8,9,10 :)
11 - Not good... first of all followed the strip of green to the SE of the strip of green that lead to the control; then came across too high and ended up above the windblow instead of below it, and even once I'd got to the right side of the windblow still took a while to find the control as was a bit too high up the hill on the lower edge of the windblow. Lost c4mins.
12 :)
13 - Think the change from forest to open got me a bit, contours were different to what I'd visualised
14,15,16,17,18,,19,20,21,22,F :)
So a couple of wee blips and one which wasnt so good, but apart from that was fairly steady and I quite enjoyed the course despite it being pretty physical.

Scottish Sprint Champs
North Muirton, Perth
Had a fairly clean run:

4 Overshot whilst preoccupied with planning ahead
5 :)
6 Couldnt deciper from the descriptions which side of the fence it was on, and inevitably I went to the wrong side
7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,15,16,17,18,19,20 :)
21 Slight concentration lapse made me hesitant approaching the control
22,23,24,25,26,F :)
Could possibly have saved just over a minute.
Came 2nd in W20, 20seconds behind Bex

Running intervals 30:00 [5]

1km - 3.39.79
(85s rest)
1km - 3.37.72
(85s rest)
1km - 3.44.41
(105s rest)
1km - 4.04.39
(60s rest)
1km - 4.05.26
(60s rest)
1km - 3.57.96
Started off way too fast! Then somehow managed to do the 2nd one faster...! Managed to keep the 3rd one fast but realised I would probably die if I kept that up so took a longer rest and took the pace down considerably. So I didnt manage my six sub-4min splits this week but I think I'll try to be more sensible and start slower. Quite pleased with the first 3 splits nonetheless since I didnt expect I could manage 3 in a row below 3.45, considering that getting below 3.45 for a single split was rare for me a few months ago :)

*Edit*: Just checked back over all the the weeks I've done intervals at Edinburgh, and it seems that today is the first time I've ever achieved a sub 3.45 1km lap during intervals, let alone achieving three of them! That makes me happy :)

Then we had an interesting talk about preventing injury in orienteering, was good since she used the data from our physical screenings so it was really relevant. They're going to set up some exercises in the gym for us to improve on the highlighted weak or inflexible parts.
