NGOC Regional - Blakeney
Fun course - struggling with ankles and right glute after run last night, so was feeling very sluggish at times and struggled on down hills as usual, especially on muddy/slippy parts.
Concentrating on technique, which generally worked, especially attack points (following watching Megan's video yesterday).
Lost confidence on 6 as everything seemed to fit, having crossed the horrid gully, but just didn't see control in lovely open bit of wood, but it was further down than expected, hidden behind a tree from my approach angle (Matthew said he saw it from a long way off!!!).
No. 8 - missed my attack point! which should have been easy to spot, path crossing, so wasn't sure on exactly where I went in off path and was looking too early, mistaking an unmapped crag for one just above control
Otherwise reasonably clean.
Miles behind all the 21's as expected, but also Pete W who got amongst them and Clive
Popped to Moseley Green after to check out whether there had been anymore forestry work. Some clearing has taken place in finish area and a muddy large extraction lane appeared near last control!!! All a bit worrying.
Also, extremely disappointed to find out this week that BUCS takes place the same weekend as the Southern Champs, which is a National Event. This degrades the event somewhat, so not sure why that has happened.
Although it did mean I has someone running my M21E course, beforehand to get some very useful feedback - just hope I get some M21E runners in attendance!!!
Orienteering race 56:32  10.5 km (5:23 / km) +9m 5:22 / km
WNL - Uraban/Park Race around Taunton inc. housing, college campus and park.
Knew as soon as I punched first control I got tactics wrong, which is par for the course for me on score events. Also, watch stopped after 14 minutes and did not notice, so had no idea how long I had left.
