Scottish 6 days - Day 6

Some of the most fun orienteering all week. Started steadily and then was ok through to 7, slightly poor line out lost some time to 8 and then was a touch unsettled on 9 leading to my biggest mistake, losing contact and drifting right (+1:30). Then took some aggressive lines and felt I probably got a little lucky to hit some flags but kept contact better at the end before trying to turn it up on the last few. Reckon 30~ was doable with some clean orienteering, quite a few misses or uncertainty in some circles but on the whole stayed way more settled than day 3. Won the day but couldn't claw back the time to Shminty, still really happy with 2nd overall!

Aim for the week was to enjoy it and stay relaxed with the racing. Generally did so and pleased to see that I have the fitness to race for 7 days. Navigation is far smoother and more controlled when I'm relaxed so I'm going to continue with the attitude of just enjoying it for now, really having fun when I'm out in the forest at the moment. Happy to have gotten some good results, especially having 2 early starts, but more pleased to have had a pretty consistent week of good orienteering. Good point to start looking forward from and building for next season.

Scottish 6 days - Day 5 WRE Long (Craig a Barns).

Really fun course. Maybe a bit more in the open than expected but otherwise just as promised, a big grindy slog around a really cool area. Lonely throughout, moved steadily through the woods, caught sight of Ali at 9 but took different routes and moved past him to 10 then didn't see anyone until catching a big pack on the last couple of controls. No real major errors today, some caution and one bigger miss on 15 but overall pretty happy to have kept plugging on my own throughout. Smashed by GG as expected but maybe on fresher legs could have gotten a little closer, really pleased with 2nd.

Scottish 6 days - Day 4

Ok run today, not helped by the early start meant more battling than it should have been. Some poor navigation in the plantation dropped some time and then maybe just being a bit lazy on the easy area meant some more small pockets lost. Nice enough run out though.

Scottish 6 days - rest day sprint

Fun little park for sprinting and some nice routechoice in the streets. Didn't feel hugely aggressive but picked routes and stuck with them, reasonable flow throughout and cool to get the win.

Scottish 6 days - Day 3 WRE Middle

Fairly messy run. Had a good start but then didn't concentrate at the far end and felt rushed through the low vis at the end. Just never really settled as often seems to happen on middles. Not a bad run I suppose but could and probably should have been better. Enjoyed it though and a well organised event.

Scottish 6 days - Day 2

Felt pretty settled from the off and found a nice rhythm. A few small misses but generally a pretty good run, cool to get the win!
