orienteering race 1:04:28 [4] 6.2 km (10:24 / km) +230m 8:46 / km

S6D day 2, Strathfarrar.

Queued for an hour to get into the car park but still made it to the start in time for my 2pm start time. Lost a bit of time at #3, first of all by climbing too much out of #2, then by going to a crag in the open a little above the one with the control on it. (which was in the forest, not in the open where it should have been). Most of the rest was just following the big elephant track until we got into the green forest at the end. A clean run from #14 to the finish gained me 7 places.

30th place, not bad, benefitting hugely from a late start time.

orienteering race 1:11:31 [4] 8.0 km (8:56 / km) +160m 8:08 / km

S6D, day1, Achagour

Started off into the lovely white forest with 3 good controls, then let myself get distracted by Roger Goddard at #4 and lost a minute going round in circles. After that everything was a bit ragged until #8 where I lost another minute not turning into the re-entrant and going down to the next one with the path in it. After that everything improved, although winsplits claims I made a mistake at 16 when I was just slow running uphill through heather.

44th for the day, maybe 3 minutes of mistakes. Could have been better.

Neither fast nor slow. Legs still work.
