Orienteering (BUCS Individual Burbage) 1:08:23  10.5 km (6:31 / km) +365m 5:33 / km
The first race I've taken seriously for a while. Poor out of the start and got on the wrong path above the rocky slope - don't rush. Good to 3 and ran past 4 without seeing it - distance judgement. Thought I got a good line 5 but was well down and Lewis caught me back up a little. Not enough respect for the tricky 6-10 and had bad compass on the first before slowing down, Willy reeled us in. Again on 10 poor compass. Was surprised to have been caught as I felt I had been running fast, plan was then to run away.
Aimed for a heather-lite route to eleven but was a little tired over the hill. Hit it okay and seemed to have lost the others. Treb helped me massivel to 12 then got in front by 15. Lost a little time on 16 (bad looking) and 17 (should have realised the vegetation wouldn't be helpful and gone safer round the ditch).
On the way to 18 could see a long line behind so knew I wasn't getting away. Turned up too early to 19 (should have looked for a near-path attackpoint) and then should have been more careful into the vague stuff. Pretty much caught by all. Twatted my knee on a rock on the way to twenty and needed a lie down for a bit, got going again a good while behind Willy with Treb and Vokes inbetween. Beasted it until I caught back up at 24. Nice and steady and careful throught the boulders trying to lead. Didn't read the description to 28, looking for a pond not bare rock, much faster straight-ish anyway. Pushed to beat Willy into the run-in. Good running, average nav, great race.
