Nationals Sprint

This was a really fun course! Really challenging!
I actually was not very happy with my race, but there were some good things about it.
felt like I took a while to get into the map in the first few controls...stuffed up #4 as the sides of the stairs had huge walls on each sides, and I just got soo confused and lost 30sec!! :( After that, I was just trying to orienteer a bit cleaner...I was just so hesitant and couldn't see some of the controls around corners etc...stuffed up 12 as i thought i was maybe to early as it was behind this tiny corner on the building... then #19 i went down into the stream, then realised it was up above, although there was a huge impassable wall which was marked as passable, so had to go all the way back around to get to it...Apparently I lost 6 sec to Greta just in the finish chute, which is really weird as i went real hard and pulled away from tessa and mace, although they have faster splits than me?? so weird?? possibly both the finish controls were not in sync, which is terrible for a sprint!!! Some of the dead heaters may have been faster than others etc... bit dodgy :/ at nationals, surely u would make sure this is right??? oh well... :/ If I was only a few seconds behind Greta, then maybe I would have something to really complain about, but it doesnt effect me that much, but for some maybe??? :S
other than the mistakes and average flow, I was happy with a few quick route choice decisions, and my overall placing of 2nd in my first year of elites... :)
Bring on'll b tough!!! 7.2km with 480m climb!! sheeesh!!!

warm up to the start of the training

Orienteering 50:00 [3]
(injured) shoes: X-Talons 190 (red)

did a head to head middle training session...had 2 middle loops. I went with Imogene and we did opposite was in all the felled tree part near potluck...i was pretty useless at running through all of it, and funny niggles started to flair up a bit :/ navigation was ok...bit average in places though...

Running 26:00 [3]
(injured) shoes: X-Talons 190 (red)

just went for a jog around the sand dunes and did a bit of map reading and the last 2 controls of the 2nd training...ran out to the beach and checked it out too :P
Didn't want to do the next training, as I felt like the first one was enough for me, and I was not keen to go back into the crap body was a lot more happy with me running on some even ground :)
