Orienteering - Urban race (Glasgow Uni Indoor) 27:24 [2] 1.58 km (17:24 / km) +113m 12:49 / km
ahr:115 max:153 shoes: Pegasus 39

As usual, amazing fun. More successful than previous exploits - 11th and only 4 mins down.

Main issues were forgetting what control I'm on, and picking the first route I think of rather than considering it's definitely best.

For example my biggest time loss was 19-20 where I needed to get from Staircase D, Floor 8 to Staircase D, Floor 1.

The obvious route would be seven floors down staircase D; whereas I went down three floors, transitioned to staircase E, went down the remaining floors and then transitioned back to D again. The only rationale for this is that I knew control 20 was near staircase E, and I knew you could only transition on floors 1 and 5. This is useful information in general but useless for this leg specifically.

Great fun nonetheless, anyway. Looking forward to SIC one year soon!
