Orienteering race 14:55 [4] *** 3.65 km (4:05 / km)
shoes: Inov8 x talon 212 #2

NOL sprint. Bad preparation, was rushed and spent my warm up time in a toilet queue that I never got a chance to reach the front of. Made a few small errors that were really rookie and was only in the last few controls that I realized I wasn't even tired, so perhaps I should have pushed harder. Was well off the pace and a little disappointed really
1 PM

Orienteering race 33:42 [5] **** 6.0 km (5:37 / km)
shoes: Inov8 x talon 212 #2

NOL middle. Was determined for a better result after this morning. Cautious start but picked up and was coming 2nd for a period of controls until I stuffed up #11. Went right which was rocky and slow and didn't recognize my attackpoint so ended up past the control. Lost 70 secs. Next few legs and really the rest of the course were a bit slower as I tried to limit any more mistakes and get my head back into it. Ended up 5th, with olle beating me for 4th place in the finish chute. Happier with this result but would have been stoked with a time 70 secs quicker

Running warm up/down 10:00 [3]

Orienteering race 20:34 [5] * 4.68 km (4:24 / km)
shoes: Inov8 x talon 212 #2

park 3 at blackbutt. super muddy, was slipping even in talons. nearly axed myself so bad on one of the wooden bridges it was that slippery. really pushed hard on the hill legs as i thought that was where i could gain a time advantage perhaps. slowed down alot on the muddier single track out to the north as it was super sketchy and i didn't want to hurt my ankles. felt pretty stuffed in the last controls though. won by about 1:40, hopefully i can perform in the final now!

Running 10:00 [3]
shoes: Inov8 x talon 212 #2

control collecting. felt good in the legs just jogging, so thats promising. travelling tomorrow evening straight after uni so not sure if i'll get to run tomorrow

Running intervals 44:08 [4] 7.6 km (5:48 / km)
shoes: Inov8 x talon 212 #2

sprint ints. legs really sore in a weird spot, and again felt pretty slow. however the times weren't terrible and whilst i got tired quickly i felt like i was running better towards the end. times were all 33 except for 2 which were 32. pushed my recoveries a little quicker today too.
Average: 32.9.
only a little slower then last time, so thats not too bad.

Running 24:25 [3] 5.0 km (4:53 / km)
shoes: Nike Lunar Eclipse+ (blue)

bit of a recovery run. trying to get back into the swing of things after last weeks deviation from my training program. felt really terrible running though which was disappointing. hopefully i can get my feeling bad running out of the way early in the week and feel as good as i have been recently by the weekend.

MTB Orienteering race 1:12:38 [4] * 18.55 km (15.3 kph)

Last boss event. Felt pretty good riding but took a little bit to remember mtb technique. Anyway was going for them all when I decided to get a 1 pt before a 2 and then decided I didn't have enough time for the 2 and raced back. Turns out I had plenty of time, and would have won if I'd just bitten the bullet. Oh well
3 PM


got called to fill in for my friends netball team at uni. we won, but in no way was it because of my efforts which were pretty terrible. was so confused at the start of the game!
