4 intervals with Ian and Kas. First hard session since coming off the plane. The result...Epic failure in the first interval. Climbing the hill to control 3 my heart rate spiked (absolutely fucked) I then proceeded to miss control 3 and the finish. Got really frustrated and a bit down after trying to relocate on the way to the finish. The unfamiliar feeling of "I have no clue where I am" crept in. Soon realised and corrected. Second interval was a little better but still had some compass issues. By the third I guess my brain and body kicked into gear. Navigation was perfect and I felt really good (still smashed but I felt better than I did in the first two). Last one we did as a mass start. Really got some speed finally in the legs. So a big learning experience today and I am starting to get to grips with the nav. I think Jetlag has had a huge impact on my orienteering...I am finding it difficult to read the map but that will disappear in a few days time.
