Orienteering race 57:22  *** 7.16 km (8:01 / km) +61m 7:41 / km
First day of the Scottish Six Days!
I went into this race wanting to only focus on my navigation, and that's how I started off woohoo! But after nailing the first few controls I decided to pick up my speed a little bit. I was slightly off to the left on four but I was doing a good job keeping my head up and spotted the control before I got pulled too far off. Had a bobble on 10 when I ran to the wrong patch of green. I should've been looking for the contour feature the control was on, not the vegetation around it. The second half of the course was very physical, but I did a good job pushing through it and staying in contact with the map despite my oxygen-deprived brain.
I ended up 11/49ish ~7 mins back from the leader. I'm happy with that result but I will be looking for cleaner races the rest of this week.
