JEC Long - Fairy Knowe and Doon Hill
Course started with three easy path routes, before a bit of actual orienteering with some decent long legs. Took the obvious route choices on all the long legs. Coming out of 5, ended up fighting through shoulder high gorse, which wasn't fun, especially seeing Vegard Jarvis WestergÄrd springing out from a clearly much easier route through it. Stuck with him until 11, where he opened a gap along the path, so I didn't see him going into 12.
Lost a bit of time in the low visibility area for the phi loop, mainly on nos 13 and 15, just very difficult to maintain direction properly in there.
Took a bad route to 19, trying to climb under the crags rather than going around to the north, so ended up fighting through some quite bad windfall and then some high bracken.
After that, the rest of the course was pretty good, just flowing through and navigating cleanly
28th - Another decent performance, with just a few small slips, so going home quite happy after this weekend.

JEC Relay, South Achray, 1st leg
Started out with a mad dash across the field to get onto a tiny single track. Ended up at the back of the pack and punched the first control in last place. Reeled a few in on the leg to 2, then stayed with the group until 10.
Ended up on a different gaffle to 11 along with SUI 3, and lost a bit of time by going to the wrong control first - should have gone straight instead. Stuck with him a decent amount ahead of a big pack until 18 and the map exchange.
On the long leg over to 19, managed to break away on my own. Made a small slip going into 19, but didn't lose much time as it was on a good path. Another mistake to 23 - stayed on the path too long before coming off, and allowed the pack to catch up with me.
Pushed hard in the last loop to make sure I stayed ahead, and came in 18th, ahead of some decent teams, so happy

JEC Sprint at Stirling University
Started out in very runnable forest area, made a route choice mistake to 2 which lost a lot of time. 3-6 all still in the forest and fine, then took the high route on the long leg to 7. 8-15 all classic campus sprint type legs, no real issues there, although ran past 8 and had to turn around, losing a couple of seconds.
After that, it was across the lake to some rough open land with bushes scattered around, mostly fine here, except for 22, going to the wrong bush first and having to slow down to relocate.
Overall, happy enough. 2 mins down on the winner, and 30th place.

Lisbane road loop. Feeling really unfit, but think I was just pushing harder than normal, because that's a decent time for the route
