Orienteering race (Strathfarrar) 46:20 [3] 3.85 km (12:02 / km) +145m 10:08 / km
shoes: Icebugs

The first part of the course was an open area which should really suit me, but I started off really slowly and was standing right by #1 scratching my head for what felt like ages. Faffed to 2 as well. Couldn't decide which crossing point was the best one to go through and then ,are the leg longer than I needed to. Lost a good 3 mins on those two alone. Then got my act together for the rest of the open. A small section of the forest just didn't make sense to me though and I messed up both times I ran in it. So lost time on 8 and 10. 10 was very bad. I didn't take the planned route and really paid for it. Lost another 6 mins on these two. Grr. I find green forests tough.

Orienteering race (Archagour) 47:02 [4] 4.6 km (10:13 / km) +70m 9:30 / km
shoes: Icebugs

A really good run. No mistakes at all apart from a bad route choice and 30s at the end where I lost concentration near the finish. Very happy with my run for a change and the result. Running 35s as with split starts long didn't seem doable. Would prefer to be doing long but never mind. I thought I had a lack of fitness but felt quite good running today.
