Orienteering race 1:18:54 [5] 9.7 km (8:08 / km)

Easter long distance. a little cooler today, which I hoped my help my running, although I already felt like I'd run a classic before I started. navigated reasonably well - just a few wobbles in control circles, but never had the speed I needed for a race like this. really great area, and would have been really fun with speedy legs!

Orienteering race 37:24 [5] 4.7 km (7:57 / km)

Easter middle distance. another hot day, and felt pretty crappy after yesterday in the heat. felt like I was cooking before I even warmed up.
started the course ok, but felt like I was getting really pushed around in the fallen trees - most time lost due to getting pushed off line or stuck rather than mistakes, but still managed a few wobbles in control circles. saw vanessa about 1/2 way around, and she caught me a few controls later. ran a few good legs together, but managed to stuff each other up a fair bit as well, particularly the second last.
pretty unimpressed with the run in general, really shouldn't be struggling that much physically.

Orienteering race (Easter prologue) 14:05 [4] 2.2 km (6:24 / km)

hot day, not enough sleep and legs felt pretty ordinary warming up. I was also a bit concerned about adjusting to the scale as our attempts at training on granite sprint maps had been thwarted by maps that were so bad they were useless. The first control proved be exactly what I had feared, and I only just figured out the scale before I ran over it. that sorted out the scale issue though, and I was mostly ok from then on. I saw kathryn and sarah around number 4, and ran a fair bit with kathryn from then on - she was a fair bit faster running, but wasn't finding the controls too cleanly.
really fun area, and happy to get around without any stuffups.
