Orienteering 51:17  6.45 km (7:57 / km) +279m 6:32 / km
Bishop woods night.
Planned to orienteer aggressively, but an immediate climb curbed that idea because I was then tired.
An average run, generally okay with the navigation and quick to correct. Didn't know where along my bearing I was for the second half of the long leg, but the control was on the top of the edge of the hillside, so once I'd hit the steep descent I knew it was either up or down along the massive spur, and I worked out where I was so it was down. I was disappointed after navigating to 3 really well, that it was in fact control 13, and 3 was in the opposite direction. I hardly saw anyone the whole way round, someone was just behind me at the top of the map, then I punched 13 (the second time) with another but didn't go their route to 14, I should have done. I eventually got to 16 and saw a stream of people descending to the finish. So in an effort to get fastest split I bombed after them but too quickly got ahead, not having looked at my map I didn't know where I was going other than downhill, but I went the wrong way, hit the fence at the bottom and ran along the fence away from the finish thinking I was on the other side of the corner. I lost up to 1.5 minutes and 4 positions, but it was still worth it.
I could tell I was losing concentration for the last section (13 onward) but didn't really have the drive to get my head thinking 100%, no major mistakes in this bit but just a bit slow and sloppy.
