Great! Better to navigate cleanly and let your speed catch up. Some fast runners are still learning they need to slow down to navigate.

Definitely will remember that Janet! :)

As an extreme example- 3secs to let your compass fully settle is very much worth it to save a few degree barring error and then control searching in the wrong place! If you watch WOC videos the top runners will stand still if needed! So taking the time to get the nav right will always surve you well.

It took me about 2 years to really settle down so that I was navigating and recognizing features as I went. I came from a running background so even after that I tended to overrun my ability to read the map.
