Warm Up/Down 15:00 [3]

Orienteering 43:33 [3]

First of all I don't feel guilty because even if I had brought the team back in first fourth is probably where we would have finished and we still did really well mixing things up.
Saw Duncan coming in first and nearly shit myself haha
Jamie was on my tail but luckily I had a nice gaffle and nailed it still leading the relay and got my confidence back.
Then immediately fucked it up, basically not thinking and not reading the map losing so much time on 2.
3 again was shit and everyone caught me up but that included Will Gardner he lead me into the control. Then between 4-8 we were together. I actually led him for quite a bit and we had two different gaffles that I safely found and bridged back to him.
Sadly 9 cost us the race as I led Will into his gaffle and teh couldn't find mine at all.
9-12 all really easy
13 messec it up taking the high route
14-16 easy nailed them all
17 slight mess up but nothing too bad

Matt had a really great run as Edinburgh and Cambridge could have really caught him, I actually think even though Duncan's run was great Matt was probably the standout.

Again mixed bag as I proved I can handle a relay nailing my gaffles at high speed against good people, however, at the same time made some atrocious mistakes. I think the area played a big role tough as the technical rock was so easy to get lost in, in open moorland for the JK shouldn't be such an issue.
