Looking forward to getting out for some Sunday orienteering. The weather was perfectl Autumnal weather on the drive down. The area has some interesting contours for the South but is definitely physical and tough underfoot in places! Was in a bit of queue at the start with people either side of me, was catching my minute man fairly well.

Got dragged to control 20 on the way to 3 (+1min), didn't trust the veg mapping, maybe not using my compass well enough and maybe a bit of following.

Rough bearing to number 9 was poor (+1min) Could see a building but it wasn't the one I thought it was.

Final control lost 3:30. Should've gone up the reentrant. On the ridge I was confused and kept doubting whether I was in the right place. I thought the control was on the top of the slope, when I got there realised it was in the reentrant way below. Completely hadn't realised there were contours behind (maybe obscured by circle/green veg). Who knows!

Pretty happy with my run, was only 6s down on Nick before my big mistake. Felt tough going at times but it was rough and I was moving fairly well compared to other people. Felt tired after but I think it was a good post orienteering kind of tired, rather than fatigue,

Cycling 1:41:31 [3] 41.37 km (2:27 / km)

Autumnal loop of the Forest
Out via Eling to Ipley Cross Roads up to Beaulieu road station then Lyndhurst, north, then back through Bartley
Had been aiming for 90 mins but my original route was going up through Emery Down to Minstead. Things with my gears are definitely not right post service. To start, had cold wrists (normal cycling top + blue overlayer + thin gloves left a gap) and had cold toes. Going to take some figuring out what layers and clothes to wear if I continue doing some cycling over the winter. May need to buy some new bits.
Really into the wind all the way across the heathland, sapped all energy out of me and I was really struggling. Had a break at Boltons Bench for some food. Almost came straight back but looked at the map and decided to explore a new bit north of Lyndhurst. Linked up quite well actually and is a good option for another time.
