British Long Championships M21L Winterfold
Unsure what to make of this. Small and largely average field on the Long this year. I finished in 2nd, 1:24 down on Iain Stamp in the end.
#3 Poor direction out of #2 and small miss in the circle (20s)
#5 Round was evidently better here (1m)
#10 Wobbled twice here (15s)
#12 Hadn't planned this long leg, direction out of the control forced me to take this route which probably involved more terrain than necessary (1m 30s)
#14 Ran straight over the small gully without seeing it but did realise upon hitting the larger gully beyond the control (30s)
#15 Poor direction out of #14 initially, then fell flat on my face when running down the path on the spur. Gashed my knee which hurt for the next couple and threw my concentration, overshooting. Never saw thickets to south of control either (2m)
#16 Had no idea how far along the small path I was as I crossed. Quick search speculatively but had to go beyond the control to the bigger path before heading back in (1m)
#18 Poor route (didn't even see path option at the time; concentration gone), calves cramping up at this point too so stopped to stretch. Once in the vicinity I started looking too far south (2m)
#19 Overshot by miles (1m 45s)
Just over 10m of errors right there. Orienteering is such a frustrating sport.
