orienteering 2:02:00  17.0 km (7:11 / km) +600m 6:06 / km
Bit of an epic long distance today.Long,lonely and brutal! Really fun and a great challenge, yet so frustrating - orienteering is so fucking annoying!
Was physically pretty good today. And I'd say for about 29/35 of the controls were pretty alright. Yet I managed to fuck two of the controls i made mistakes on really,really badly - one 7min mistake and one 5min mistake and then some other shitey ones. Both coming from some poor compass, yet i can use my compass well for the majority of the course? Time loss totalled about 15-20mins today, Shite.
Compared splits with Arnaud (who went on for a solid race for a junior) after and we were both on 49 just before the butterfly and just before my mare.
So still quite motivating to see I felt physically quite good and had a solid start to the course which was my goal after yesterdays bad start, and a lot of the course I was actually quite decent!... but at the same time it's just a bit shit I can't put one completely stable race together atm, meh. Something needs to change! Analysing my races a lot atm which is going well so for next season I can try and work on my weaknesses. Can't tell if it's just from loosing concentration or just bad technique, probably a bit of both.
At least I checked my codes today...
