o-race race 53:02 [5] 2.5 km (21:13 / km) +205m 15:03 / km

oh my god! that map was really technical. I messed up going to 3 got stung and tried to hit the wasp with my map and lost were I was and tried to relocate and find the control and I eventually did. Going to 5 I didn't notice I passed over a form line and went to the wrong side of a spur and thought I was somewhere else and finally found were I was. The rest of the race was good I just went slow and made sure I knew where I was at all times.

o-race race 1:22:09 [4] 5.4 km (15:13 / km) +145m 13:25 / km

This is the first time I have ran in a dessert and I hate running on sand! But I still did. My first control was bad I didn't know I hadn't gone far enough and I was looking for it and then clued in I hadn't gone far enough. Going to 3 I messed up and lost some time and 5 was pretty bad but I relocated and found it. The rest of the race was slow but no mistakes.

o-race race 23:37 [5] 2.3 km (10:16 / km) +45m 9:21 / km

Today was the coc sprint at Robinson roadhouse, It wasn't my best sprint. I made errors that were stupid and shouldn't have happened but what can you do. I lost 1 minute and 30 second on control 3 think The one I saw wasn't mine and going west to find mind and not finding and going back to check the other control and it being mine. lost another 2 minutes going to control 9. i started off really good and then I went to the wrong knoll then climb to find out where I am then noticed I was one knoll over. 12 I lost 20-30 second just went off to far but caught myself and headed back.

o-training 30:00 [1]

So for practice today it was aiming off. The first part was pretty good I ended close or dead on to were I wanted to be. I could do the first have but going to the second half my ankle was hurting so I did 3 controls and went and stood in the lake. and didn't do the fun relay later

o-training 45:00 [3] 3.7 km (12:10 / km)

So we got maps with just contours the road and the lake. It was a lot simpler to read and I went a lot faster then usual. I didn't have any real problems made a small mistake going to 8 I was just one depression over

o-training 25:00 [3]

so after about a 20 minute break we went back out to do relocation. Lousie just ran through the woods and we couldn't look at the map and she would stop and then tell us to relocate and when we have it go to the closes control. I had a lot of trouble for the first 3 relocation I just was doing it right but I caught on after

o-race race 20:00 [4] 3.0 km (6:40 / km)

so we had the hop relay were we got auctioned off. I was the second runner and I did pretty well no big mistakes a bobble here or there. I got the experience what it is like having a train of people right behind you and you try and not mess up or let them pass you and they didn't which I was happy about!
