British night champs, great tower. 2 big mistakes. One I thought I need to be careful, yet still started going down the slope without being 100% confident of where I was (3 min) 2nd got confused by a building and convinced myself I was in the wrong place when I wasn't. (5 min) Other than that ok, just a few wobbles here an there. Being a massive wimp down the slopes.

Snowy long run at Scolty. Legs were feeling a bit dead after the past week so went up the back way. Someone had made tracks so not too difficult till just before the top. Snow turned a bit sleety so was pretty much running along with my eyes shut + couldn't see very far anyway. Downhill was a bit sketchy as it was quite slippy and I had no clue what was going on beneath the snow. Path across to Goauch was not very obvious and managed to run off it at some point and again the rocks weren't visible. By this point I was making completely fresh tracks and the going was quite tough despite trying to go very slowly. Coming down by the fence the snow had caused the gorse to close in on each other making the path practically invisible. Shortly after the standard wet patch was beginning to ice over so went round. After that it was just standard ankle deep snow which isn't too bad but still found it quite hard work. Very thankful of some footprints around 10k. Had planned this as a day without any terrain running but the snow made it much harder work than planned. Will get lots of stretching and rolling done.

Bellwood night training. Everything taken off the map except for black and streams. Used it as bearing practise and tried to mostly just use the paths for distance judgement. Mostly went well but went offline a few times. Probably didn't go to the exact location a few times as there wasn't any controls out.

Middle - Carse of Ardersier. Should have stayed on the path for longer to 1, then faffed a bit in the control circle. Got confused with the vegetation to 3 heading into the control, should have headed into the white. Loads of gorse in the way to 9 so went round the path. Plan was to turn left at the junction but didn't take into account the bend in the path and when I got to the end thought I had already turned left. Therefore went straight on much to Paul's amusement. Even after that I was too hesitant in the circle, there seemed to be a few more depressions on the ground than on the map. 12 tried to navigate off the vegetation. Didn't plan 14 properly and temporarily thought I could get through the green. Really tired both mentally and physically. Going to have a couple of easier days. Navigation definitely seems to be becoming much more automatic and making much smaller + a different types of mistakes than before. http://3drerun.worldofo.com/2d/index.php?idmult%5B... HR monitor was falling down so not sure how accurate it is.
