Warm Up/Down 10:00 [3]

Orienteering race (Welsh Champs Methyr Mawr) 40:00 [3]

Yeah it was a shocker!
1/ good
2/ slight hesitation but good
3/slight miss but good
4/good and caught my 2 min man ifor and 1min man
5/ lost contact and couldn't work out the veg so they got away
7/missed but saw it poor compass work
7/took the lead good
8/ really nice got a distance now and nailed it
9/miles the wrong way as veg just couldn't make sense of and went too far south
10/ hit 10 before 9 so easy
11-13/Ifor had got away again and so legged it to catch him up and nailed them all in some hard legs

14/ Basically I got ahead of Ifor again but couldn't work out what to do as I couldn't see if there was some good route choice, looking at it now I should have followed the fence and come across.
What I actually did was run probably about 1.5km the wrong way just trying to hit the river, I hit the estuary and then found control 19 before anything made sense!!!

15-28/ Gave up as had so little motivation that I probably would ahve messed the others up so just ran the last couple of controls, still messed them up lol

Overall great training and glad I went, I am not even that annoyed by how I did as I don't think competition was really on my mind today :)
