Constance Bay race in pouring rain. A couple of control mistakes, and slow due to a lot of fallen trees making running really hard in some parts. The mistakes was due to not having a plan for how to take the control and not slowing down and read the map enough.

w/u run to track
10 x 400 with 1 min rec...with a twist
Each person had ten map snippets, slightly different and in different orders, at 1:10000. (I used 1:5000)
During each interval, each person could look at the relevant map snippet for 5 sec every 100m, also trying to thimb along the snippet.
At the end, during the recovery, without looking at the snippet each person needed to identify wihich snippet out of a possible 16 they just ran (presenetd on a master chart as lettered snippets) and indicate it on a mock "control card"...at the end everyone would score themselves out of ten as to how many they got correct.
w/d 1 lap of the track plus the run back
The "twist" did the 10x400m feel easier because concentrating on reading the map and memorizing details. It was quite difficult to spot the differences between the map snippets and identify the correct one in the 1min rest period between intervals. Good practise.
