Orienteering (SEJS) 30:00 [2]

Control Hanging
I got a lift with Keith & Sue so had to do some control hanging
Hung 5 controls.

Orienteering (SEJS) 30:00 [3] *** 3.4 km (8:49 / km)

Was training with Helen so practised map readign while running
I planned the route for next control while she was running the route I'd planned for that control and I had to follow
I'm not v good at explaining it!

Orienteering (SEJS) 20:00 [3] 2.2 km (9:05 / km)

Attack Points
Did the same as with the routes, but I had to have a def attack point to my route aswell
I think doing these has really helped with reading the map while proper running, but now i need to add the navigation factor too!

Orienteering (SEJS) 25:00 [3] *** 2.2 km (11:22 / km)

Control Pick
This time I was doing like a proper course with Helen following me
Focussed on keeping my flow on it
was a bit eurgh with 5,6 & 7

Orienteering (SEJS) 40:00 [3] ***

Hanging Exercise
You had to go hang your control, then do the course from your contol, finish the course at your control and take it back to the start
But my control was furthest away cos I was the oldest at this training, and Richards control was like infront of mine on the way to it (if that makes sense!) so he was with me all the way and he can run really quick cos his legs are long so it wasn't fair.
And my control was on a depression and in the control circle was 2 depressions and a knoll and I couldn't see the depression so hung it on the knoll...

Running (Hill reps) 40:00 [4]

So not actually with D&T because its Polly's party so I went earlier
Did a 10 minute warm up run
For my reps I then went up finch around Orchard Ave and back down Finch. This took between 5:15 and 5:30 mins
I did 4 reps with 1:30 min rest in between
It was icy on the pavement which slowed me down a bit, and i didn't do as long a warm up as we do at Tring.
