Orienteering race 1:02:21 [4] 11.4 km (5:28 / km) +320m 4:48 / km

Day 6 - Coulmony and Belivat

Thought I was going to hate it when the first few controls were entirely in marsh, but I actually ended up really enjoying the race. Made a couple of silly mistakes due to being massively knackered, but ended the week in 10th (4th British) which I am mega pleased about :) Even managed to sneak ahead of some GB girls again.

Now to let my giant ankle return to a vaguely normal size!

Orienteering race 56:00 [4] 6.8 km (8:14 / km) +285m 6:49 / km

Day 5 - Roseisle

Enjoyed today sooooo much more! Just feeling knackered and made some stupid mistakes near the end of the course - no idea how I will make it round tomorrow!! I think 3 solid weeks of orienteering may finally have caught up with me ;)
The ankle wasn't so bad, just a bit twingey and achy sometimes - but wrecked my knee again today. I am such a disaster.

Orienteering race 42:04 [4] 4.7 km (8:57 / km) +165m 7:37 / km

Day 4 - Loch of Boath

Omg I hated this area. Had such a bad attitude the whole way round but having to wake up the controls and be the first into the bracken is not fun. Walked quite a lot of it which is really bad but my legs would just not go. Was just generally too tough underfoot and too easy technically for me - need to work on my terrain fitness big style.
Also knackered my ankle pretty badly, so not sure how that will hold out these last two days.

Orienteering race 16:07 [4] 3.1 km (5:12 / km) +25m 5:00 / km

Sprint Race at Lossiemouth. Loved it :)
Made a mess of the quarry but was only 10 seconds behind some of the GB euromeeting girls so I'm pretty pleased.

Orienteering race 1:05:57 [4] 8.5 km (7:46 / km) +90m 7:22 / km

Day 3 - Culbin

Feeling exhausted now, but had another clean run - feel like I'm almost waiting for the mistake to happen but it's all holding together. These sandune areas definitely suit my orienteering much more than the tougher, hilly areas.

Orienteering race 32:30 [4] 4.6 km (7:04 / km) +10m 6:59 / km

Day 2 - Carse of Ardersier

Had another good run. Didn't really have any mistakes at all, a few hesitations but pretty much perfect. Just not fit enough to keep a high pace the whole way round and had to have a cheeky walk near the end. Enjoyed it and really pleased that my navigation is holding together and that I am remembering to have a plan and look up :)
