Orienteering race (British) 50:38 [3] 5.5 km (9:12 / km)

One of my worst runs in a while. I couldn't get into it really and i was too hesitant & didn't have enough confidence in myself.
1)Was a bit hesitant but ran on my line and it went well
2)Was hesitant due to the change in terrain
3)Slowed down at clearing ready for it, but then just didn't see the control and went past it, had to fully stop to sort myself out.
6)Should have picked up a ride but didn't. Ended up a bit high
7)Didn't choose a route fast enough so I started going on one and then changed my mind to do the other. Then saw a diff control and even though I knew it was early went to check :S
8)DISASTER, i was slightly off my bearing then I saw a control that I thought could have been mine. Wasn't mine so then stupidly thought i was too left and ran and went to number 9 so had to go back to 8
13)Was too low down and couldn't see it even though I knew it was there got a bit confused.

2 Positives about my run:
1)Number 5 I was confident and did it well.

PE (Basketball) 50:00 [3]

Worked on defence stuff, put also played like it & stuff. It was a pretty tiring lesson but of course my team was rubbish! Which is alright but Amy gets in such moods cos we loose! Its just cos Harriet is so.. overwhelming! But yer it was lots of running about playing games and practising getting balls off of people.

Running (Intervals) 1:00:00 [3]

Did an 800m warm up jog then drills for about 30 mins
The we did 500m,1 min rest, 300m, 100m walk & 100m jog in 3mins. We did this three times at a xc pace. It was pretty tough. Also I have a bit of a coldy thing so I was suffering a bit from that.
Then did a 400m warm down jog.
and Bex drove me there :) exciting!

PE (Basketball) 45:00 [3]

Did basketball, mainly focussed on lay-up shots so was a lot of dribbling involved. I cant shoot to save my life!

PE (Badminton) 40:00 [3]

Lesson was a little shorter than normal cos had to do parents evening appointments. But badminton was pretty energetic.

PE (Badminton) 45:00 [3]

Did badminton in PE, its pretty tiring!

Strength (Austins Exercises) 5:00 [3]

Did normal leg dips, lunges and squats. Not for very long but its hard doing them for a long time. Will try to do more of them, but probs only for the 5 mins instead of 10/15.

Orienteering race (Burnham) 48:36 [3] 5.8 km (8:23 / km)

Overall okay, no big mistakes. It was my fitness that let me down-the terrain was too fast for me. I found there were too many long legs for me-I prefer shorter ones.
1)I took the long way round because I was annoyed at the map man, and its always good to play it safe to no. 1.
3)At the end of the leg was a bit confused
4)I didn't stick to my plan. I went down the path a bit and then around the hill instead of down.
6)I feel this went quite well. I stuck to my plan and didn't overthink my route.
9)I folded the beginning of the route off my map and thought I was going down the other road so I had to stop to sort myself out.
10)I didn't really have a plan so I just followed my bearingish. Luckily I didn't get lost but it made me very hesitant.
Finish)Good run in time:) my dacorum and tring training has helped with my speed

As requested I need 2 or more positives things about my run:
1)I concentrated well. I didn't think about what position I was comin or anything which always puts me off, or any un-orienteering related things.
2)I didn't make any huge mistakes and get lost.
3)Not really anything big-but best run in time:)

Orienteering (Control Collecting) 30:00 [3] *** 4.0 km (7:30 / km)

Collected some controls after running. Went out and did 6, map memoried the last 3 of them. So I went back and had a rest but then had to go out and get more controls. Went with mum and we split the controls to collect. Did some of them map memory too so that was good.
