Orienteering race 49:53  5.7 mi (8:45 / mi)
shoes: VJ Supra
SOL4 at Glen Nant.
Lovely new area on a lovely day. Asthma giving me a bit of grief so ran steady but suffered a bit on the hills because of it.
Ran virtually every leg straight and only a couple of mistakes.
Overshot No9 slightly and lost about 20secs.
Deliberately went to the right of No 10 so I knew to turn left when I came over the edge of the slope, however the spurs below the control were so obvious it would have been better to run straight and save a bit of time.
Main mistake was at No14 when I lost touch with the map 2/3 of the way to the control and drifted left. Was looking for the large crag on the hill to the NW of the control. Didn't see it but was beside the hill it was shown on and headed SE to the control. 45secs lost.
Didn't / couldn't really attack the course but happy enough with my run. I wonder how different it would have been if the cloud had been down and it was very wet and windy! A shame more people didn't come along 'cos it was really good - and the map printing was fine!
Easy week required now before the Scottish Champs on Saturday!
