BKO Star Posts Brown 5th +8:30 on Tom
Last time here in 2014, I had one of my two ever Did Not Finishes. Fortunately finished this time! ... Realised it's 3 life DNFs, two orienteering (here in 2014 and Scottish 6 Days 2015 final day) and one mountain marathon (LAMM 2014).
Found the area quite tough and physical off path. Unsure if I nailed the long route choice, decided to go for as straight as possible but the paths were very wiggly in the middle section (then a small miss in the circle, a bit too high). +2:02 on Tom but that may be a fair amount down to running speed! Lost a bit of time on a few other controls

MLS Fritham Brown 2nd +6mins on Tom + WU/WD
Nice afternoon off work, not as good weather as it had been! Damp and cold. Worked a long half day then headed over, drive was really quick. Most people had started earlier so had a lot of the Forest to myself. Lost 80s to number 13, couldn't cross the stream were I wanted to and then was in an area of broken ground and lots looked like they could be small pits. I looked around a bit then decided to bail out and reattack. I usually take a long time getting to this stage. On the way out, I found the control. Felt a bit tired at times, could have been straighter on a couple of controls. Maybe being a bit more precise with my rough bearings?
Plan had been to practice distances and saying out loud how far stuff is away, but got a bit in the racing zone when I knew it was fast. Happy to beat Dave and Nick.

Wessex Night League Andover
Hunting for another 500! Decided to leave work early to try and avoid the traffic. Using an urban ISOM map was a bit weird. Planned to roughly do the top loop first and then get the park done early. A bit indecisive off the start then settled into a rhythm. Decided to run down the road, not across the park so crossed the stream 3 times! This may not have been the best decision. It was knee deep and my legs got pretty cold. A couple of tricky controls in the middle that I couldn't decide when would be best to get them. Worked my way round and was running hard when I could. Saw Nick and realised I'd done enough to beat him so kicked for home. Happy to get my 6th win and almost the League wrapped up (depends a bit on what happens in a tie).
