Event: The OMM

ORIENTEERING race (OMM Day 1 - 10th Place) 4:41:00 [5] *** 27.0 km (10:24 / km) +990m 8:48 / km
shoes: X-Talon 212

1st OMM Day, Felt good at the start after an annoying fire alarm at our B and B at 6am!
Starting late there were quite tracked areas and some not as we were on the score and lots of people hadn't gone our way...
After a quick glance of the map we'd not knowingly sealed our fate to get less points than the leading teams at the end of the day by heading south to collect points in quick succession rather than head towards the high scorers... still we breezed throught the first 10 km in less than 80 minutes and trundled onto the toughest terrain i think I've ever seen. Knee high tussocks, raging wind and a lovely layer of waterlogged mud underneath to top it off.
Got knackered in the middle and managed to pick Jon up at the end as his legs had given up over the most waterlogged bit near the finish!
Still a good day and sort of happy with the run but not the points!
