Orienteering warm up/down 19:10 [2] 2.81 km (6:49 / km) +20m 6:35 / km
shoes: Inov-8 OROC 280 2016

AM Warm up run on the warm up map. Shouldn't have got sucking into doing Raphael's mini wu course and shouls have done my own thing... Also the warm up map was terrible so got sucked into running around loosing all my confidence and almost missed my start.

Orienteering race 42:19 [5] 6.0 km (7:03 / km) +225m 5:56 / km
shoes: Inov-8 OROC 280 2016

AM/PM WOC Middle at Vitipalu at 1:10000. Pretty decent result for only a few hours in Estonian forest... 45th place (I think that is the best Canadian result in awhile) Arrived at the call up with right at my time and wasn't fully warmed up yet, so had to do some leg swings in between lines. I think I managed to deal with it well and just tried to calm down and forget about it. Started off alright to #1 just being a bit cautious, was going well to #2 and then I started to doubt myself and lost confidence so had to bail losing 1:45-2min., #3 couldn't see the control so had to make sure I was where I thought I was as I was unsure-35sec, #9-10sec-cautious and didn't take a direct line, #16-40sec, didn't go far enough along the ridge but it seemed to me like there was a lots of re-entrant along that slope that weren't on the map but should have known I hadn't past the huge one so should have kept going, probably should have gone straight to #21 but wanted to play it safe. There were a few other minor bobbles too. Happy to say I won two splits haha. Also hit my knee pretty good (on a log I think), it didn't really affect me during the race but I definitely felt it after and had to ice it after. Nice running weather 15C.
