O 1:31:06 [3]

Was running well for this. My 2 midweek runs were strong too. Maybe my mojo is back after getting ill in November again.

Overshot the counting to #3 and then struggled to relocate with lots of pits. Sloppy to #4 after I made a mess of #3. Again lots of detail on the ground.

Had a good bearing to #7 but as I approached the control. What was on the ground looked nothing like the map. I was looking for dark green to my left and scattered trees ahead. Saw a patch of what looked like dark green to my right but must have just been mapped as trees. I adjusted my bearing. Even relocating a couple of times, I only found the control by a search of the area.

Made a mess of #13. As I crossed the paths, I saw what I thought was the shallow, marshy, re-entrant that the control was in. That re-entrant wasn't mapped as marshy though and so I was one south of where I wanted to be. Was very confused. Finally found it by marching back up the stream. Only after I finished did I realise what I'd done.

Charlotte passed me here and she led me into most controls after that.

Really struggled matching the map to what was on the ground. A frustrating run.
