Orienteering race 1:13:18 [4] *** 10.43 km (7:02 / km) +320m 6:06 / km
ahr:151 max:163 shoes: Inov8 Oroc 340

Midland Champs, Longshaw, M45
not a bad run, but very very slow, so far behind I think something must be wrong, average HR below 155 (but that may be due to the 2min time out, bit dehydrated before I started and overheated badly, working on the start from 9.15 didn't help, took a few controls to get focussed

#1 opted not to ascend the ridge so went round the back of the control, in retrospect this must have cost time [30]
#4 a little hesitant between the walls [20]
#8 paused to decide route (already fatigued!), hesitant in circle [30]
#9 thought my route was good, low around paths, but maybe with my lack of speed straighter would've served me better [.?.]
#10 disappointing error: the sight of many more boulders than marked encouraged me to bail out of my bearing and attack from the main cluster, GPS track shows I was bang on line and within 25m of flag when I did this [40]
#13 better to take high path and drop down, I took low and cut across the slope, hesitant when I saw unmarked gullies [20]
#20 decided to run up the stream, but there was a hedge between it and the narrow gully, which meant I didn't see the control from that side [20]

12th, 11mins behind Dave Peel, and 8 behind Paul Murgatroyd and his run was not much better than mine technically
