Leinster Orienteering Championships 2014
Carrigmeal Forest

Started off by uploading my routegadget, nice miss of 13 however I managed, gps says I ran right past it, and really stupid for 27, especially due to looking at splisbrowser next, I was winning until that stupid mistake!!! No wonder I wasn't pleased afterwards.

1. (1:37, -0:16) (1:37, -0:16) Fastest split, didn't think it would be, wasn't sure about the light green, but hit the pit which had a control and was grand from there.

2. (2:14, -0:16) (3:51, -0:32) Just down to the path and ran.

3. (1:42, -0:15) (5:33, -1:02) Struggled up the hill.

4. (2:27, -0:07) (8:00, -1:11) Didn't like the climb, found the tracks confusing somehow, and again later when I was back here for 24. Also a small bit hestitant before the control.

5. (3:40, +0:01) (11:40, -1:21) Found the hill tough going.

6. (2:30, -0:22) (14:10, -2:47) Likeed the forest here.

7. (4:55, -0:33) (19:05, -3:41) Went left to the track, then around before cutting up to the wall and onto the path beyond it.

8. (2:01, +0:11) (21:06, -3:30) Slow running but got the control ok, helped by someone coming in from below.

9. (1:47, -0:17) (22:53, -4:00) Nice contouring leg.

10. (3:59, +0:34) (26:52, -3:28) Climbed up the hill but got confused, figured it out and crossed the wall and followed the small path. Followed it along and realised the forest looked familiar, had overshot by a small bit.

11. (1:09, +0:11) (28:01, -3:42) Ran downhil and cut in parallel to the control.

12. (1:54, -0:00) (29:55, -3:51) Easy.

13. (8:52, +2:51) (38:47, -1:46) Had some thinking done earlier about this leg. Was debating left or straight. Ended up going straight. And ran right past it. Balsed it up.

14. (0:48, -0:07) (39:35, -2:14) Pushed to make up time and realised maybe I was going downhill too fast.

15. (0:47, +0:06) (40:22, -2:15) Got this ok.

16. (1:23, -0:04) (41:45, -2:19) Found my way through the rough stuff.

17. (5:17, +1:05) (47:02, -1:48) Used the track and then climbed by the wall. Went too high and got caught in some tough crap before dropping down to the control.

18. (1:56, -0:09) (48:58, -2:10) Around by the path. Happy with my line out of 17.

19. (1:29, -0:00) (50:27, -2:17) There was a small path unmapped before the control which confused me for a second.

20. (1:12, -0:10) (51:39, -2:39) Uphill, hard.

21. (3:16, +0:24) (54:55, -2:43) Missed this a bit, didn't realise my control was on the spur, so ended up in the re-entrant first.

22. (2:25, -0:11) (57:20, -3:07) Along the path down low, lad on the track in front of me slowed me down a tiny bit. Bit rough getting into the control.

23. (3:08, +0:02) (60:28, -3:20) Climbed up and across to the wall again. Not easy running until the wall.

24. (2:12, +0:16) (62:40, -3:06) Nice running here again but got confused by the tracks somehow.

25. (1:29, +0:07) (64:09, -2:59) Rough running near the control.

26. (2:00, -0:02) (66:09, -3:06) More uphill but these woods are nice.

27. (10:22, +4:25) (76:31, +1:19) AHHHHH. Just path running but ballsed up the control. Came down over the hill and hit the crags, turned right and kept on going. Didn't help that it was really rough. Threw away the race.

28. (2:21, +0:17) (78:52, +1:36) Dropped low to avoid the stones then climbed.

29. (1:40, +0:25) (80:32, +2:01) Climbed to the road and dropped back down. Surprised to be 25 seconds down.

30. (0:37, +0:04) (81:09, +2:05) Control was below where I thought it was going to be.

31. (1:39, +0:08) (82:48, +2:10) Tired at this stage, legs starting to give up.

32. (2:12, +0:09) (85:00, +2:19) Cut back across to the path and ran around the green on it.

33. (1:28, +0:06) (86:28, +2:25) Cut up slightly early and had to go around, wasn't really sure where I was.

34. (0:52, +0:06) (87:20, +2:28) Down to the finsh.

Phew, that was a lot of controls to talk about!

Nice little area, would be happy to run there again, hills are tough though.

Threw away the race on 27 essentially, silly error that could have been prevented. But i'll take losing this race by not making mistakes on others. I was tired near the end, so lost some speed. Looking at my early splits I started very well, but certainly didn't feel like it, especially on the hill to 5, good god that hurt. I consciously tried to increase my effort in the butterfly, and came out of it 20 seconds better off than I did going in. Anyways there are some positives with my running, but not with my mistakes. Splirs near the end show the affects of tiredness but nearly 90 minutes of running is a lot for me considering I do how many long runs a month?
