British Middles Leith.

I knew this would be technical but I had a plan of attack of trying to use thickets wherever possible as I knew the tracks changed and the contours are often very hard to see.

I set off well hitting one. Then awful compass to 2 so lost a few seconds but not major. Fairly clean through the next lot. Losing 4-5sec on most but I knew this is okay. 8-9 decided on nailing it round the tracks. Came off on the large track then it became about 15cm wide so was like oh I came off a path early on the small one and there was some green contoury stuff to my left. No worries just cut through cross the next track and you are in. Did this then couldn't find my thicket. Saw on ran over to it but it wasn't making sense. So I carried on and hit the semi open but couldn't work out where for about 30seconds. Then finally think I have it come back between 9 and 10 and see GG. By the time i get to 9 he is probably on his way to 11 so missed that tow. I lost 3min on this leg. Small overshoot at 12. Lacking confidence I decided to path it to 13 as I had already been along those paths. So I went to my same small path before the control then headed in. Unfortunately it was still the big path and was in the wrong patch again. Lose another minute.
From there on I was pretty much clean and pushed on managing to come from 11th to 7th and win a couple of legs.

I ended up at the back of the chasing pack behind GG and Kris.

I managed to lose 4min due to one misinterpretation of the map which is very annoying. It definitely should of been a small path as it was way smaller than many other small ones but I should of relocated quicker and maybe not trusted it the second time if i made a mistake on it the first time.

I had close to the speed of the leaders for large parts but again single large mistakes blow the run apart.

I think I ran here once on a contour only map and found it easier (got stuck a bit more) as there is definite features to use whereas I found myself mostly using paths and thickets as I couldn't see much else. Yet you can't emit the vegetation screen or paths as it would become unfair so I really don't know how this map could be done well.

British Sprints Qualifier. Heat 2

Was very easy to begin with and went off fairly hard. Then had to do some navigating later on but never felt troubled and relaxed a bit through the last few controls as I was feeling quite confident.

Won the heat just ahead of Murray and Dane.

Managed to keep fairly warm despite the torrential rain. Was fairly sure no.1 was underneath but was still looking left to check it wasn't on top. I passed Jamie on the stairs then took the same route to 2 as it seemed shorter. Was in fact nearly 10sec slower. Small miss on 5 like many people did. Ambiguous control sites in sprint are not great. Good route to 6 then fairly clean until 16. I had trouble unfolding and refolding my map and didn't see the lower route to 16 losing nearly 10sec again. 20 I cut through green too early saw a control on the spur and punched it before going up to the top to punch mine. Only a few seconds lost. Then clean to the finish.

In general it wasn't very technical but a couple of route choices were time could be lost. My race was good and I am happy with my finishing position. Need to get quicker for this type of sprint. Kris made mistakes and then proceeded to take chunks of time away when I was running well.

Red Moss Kips fell race.

Went off with the lead pack dropped about 10-15m by the bottom of the first kip. Managed to run them all and overtook Waldie but Peter, Murray and Fallas got a bigger lead. Forgot how painful descents were but loving it and got close to Fallas and Murray went the wrong way so we were together. Peter stopped and Waldie caught me up but my legs were a bit tired and was mostly struggling with my bowels. So just cruised in trying to not lose anymore places or contents of my stomach.

The two sprintelope events from Wednesday.

St Leonards and D'dykes 17:07- Miss at two where I got to an olive green dead end so had to detour back round lost about 10sec. Then just having to spend time trying to find the best route as it was a technical course. Felt pretty tired but pushing on well.

some jogging

Pollock halls course 6:41. Not very technical just pushing on and trying not to overrun things on the 1:2500 map.

Very enjoyable training. Looking forward to the weekend
