Anderwood Blue
Plan was to really savour each control as it would likely be the last proper orienteering for a while.

1. A bit hesitant, knew someone would be 1min down and the reentrant was quite vauge. Control lower than expected
Going pretty well, ran with 2 Stags for a bit which was great. Really felt like I was going nicely.
6. + 15s milling around a bit in the ditches and bracken. Probably should've use the ride/open as an attackpoint
10. Lost 1:09. Drifted a bit right and got confused by the open areas (thought it was a path ahead) and slightly offput by the proximity of the car park. Tried to relocate quickly
12. Probably should've gone for path route. Went direct and it was a bit rough. Then just couldn't find the control (at least 11 mins searching), potentially needed a bit attackpoint and plan going in. Then I relocated and attacked 4 more times in different ways. Ended up giving up. The only angle I didn't attack from I could've found it...
16. Poor route choice +1:27, should've stuck to path and execution. I decided to cut the corner and ended up in massive tussocks and decided going straight was the best.
F. Lost 2:50. Got dragged round the control site and then didn't take a bearing out to the path. Got to a ride and thought it was mapped weirdly but again didn't use the compass. Just lost concenttratiom and was thinking of the end.

shoes: Mizuno Paradox 5 2020

Wessex Night League Hatch Warren & Beggarwood Park 2nd
7s down on 1st and 2s around of Nick (who made a big mistake near the end). Never had an after 8 for post run refuelling before... Need to find some perfect shoes for 50% tarmac & 50% mud wet grass conditions!
Pretty wet conditions again, some rain and some wet grass and some mud. The Night Leagues often have this weather! Horrendous drive up in rain and darkness and traffic.
Didn't quite get the right route, went for a controversial out the back through the start which was a good choice. After the Southern estate I stopped and couldn't decide whether to go into the park or not, then hadn't realised the next control was on the other side of the hedge (+1min), maybe should've done 9 and 30 later on when coming back (as didn't realise 5 was in a big dead end).

OSR Handicap
Cycling to work there and back in the dark after work is a weird experience. Not done the commute for a while.
