shoes: X-Talons 190 (red)

Day 3 of QB multi-long wknd...
today was a bit shorter, but still just as hard...quite a bit of climb, but not too sure what it was exactly...
Managed to have a really awesome start again :) was in the lead by 2min at no. 8, then managed to really stuff up my compass direction to #9 and lost at least 3min...grr!! this really did cost me the win... this was only really the only mistake i made today...the rest were just small hesitations etc... other than that one control, i was really happy with my wish i didnt do that though...grr... ahha
Got 3rd behind angela 1min50 ahead and rachel E 10sec ahead...
am happy as I had the most fastest splits by quite a bit and it was really fast terrain, so I am very happy :)
Overall a really good weekend for me :) never been quite that consistent over a wknd of races I dont think? :P

Orienteering race 1:15:24 [5]

day 2 of QB weekend..
was feeling a little bit tired in my legs today from yesterday, but tried not to think about it too much...
first 2 controls were steady and quite controlled...#3 was a long leg through the felled trees and out to the dunes...I was running really fast along the tracks, but got really confused by some unmarked clearings and came in too early and mucked it up by about 3min...after that, I just really didnt have a good flow and started getting my exit direction wrong on many of the controls...was very tired from the really long legs...managed to win two of them though :) was very tired in the last loop and just made sure i wasnt making too many errors...walked a lot!! :S
Overall I was 2nd which was ok...but race not the flashest
3 PM

Running warm up/down 16:00 [3]
shoes: X-Talons 190 (red)

6min warm up as they said they were going to start it at 3.30, but then they called us like 5min earlier...then did 10min warm down at the end with imogene and angela in the drizzle

Orienteering race 22:20 [5]
shoes: X-Talons 190 (red)

JWOC fundraiser event...2 person relay..also part of the superseries... I was with Ross...Girls mass started first...start triangle was straight up a really steep hill that everyone could see, so i tried to boost it up there :P
One was really far away, and the pace was quite quick...Angela, Amber and I managed to be a little bit ahead until the first pivot control where Amber and a few others and I stopped way too short and were looking on the wrong hill system :(...we lost so much time, and I am pretty sure almost everyone passed us then :/
After that it was ok.,..just fast and very technical, alhtough I kept flipping over the map to check the descriptions and kept reading ross's ones, so I was standing at a few controls going wtf a lot :/
think I ran in 5th, just behind 3 aussies...Ross went out and smashed it though!! So we were the winners :D

First day of QB weekend... ran W21E as I am in the NZ pinestars team, and to be honest needed the competition practice before i leave in just over 2 weeks! ahh :D
Anyway...was off to a really good start, just was reading my map perfectly to ensure i didnt have any mistakes early on, and it worked quite no.6 i had a bit of a stuff up..about 2min looking around this other system of hills :/
at 7, i caught angela and anna sheldon...angela and I were together until just after the spectator, when i think she mucked up a bit...I made a 1min mistake on 20 and then another 2 at 22...purely just on bad compass direction...saw angela again at last control... overall pretty pleased with my run as I won which was so cool :)

O'Hagens 5km series...last one tonight, so we had to do it! :)

Was a really nice evening! Perfect conditions, apart from when it rained half way through :/ ...i found it really tough at that stage, it felt like i was slipping back on every step! but it was still good :) did 8.50 at the half way...wish I could have kept that pace and gone under 18min, but i was pooped on the 2nd half... there were 2 sets of road works today too! not ideal...but guess it doesnt slow us down too much...just feel hesitant on the uneven ground and lack of street lights :P
Was a PB! yay! and the other JWOCers who ran all did PBs too! very impressive! we are on form for Poland! oh yeah! ;)
