Orienteering 1:03:39  4.09 km (15:34 / km) +148m 13:11 / km
shoes: Orange Inov8 X-talon 235
Glendalough Orienteering Training Weekend
A contour only course and a ghost course (a map with nothing but the control circles on it). Pretty rough area with thick heather and rocks therefore was going pretty slow and just making sure the navigation was correct.
Both courses started off a little shaky however then got a lot better as I got my head into it more and started to concentrate. Realised I orienteer pretty lazily when I'm in GB/Ireland as I can mostly get away with it, therefore really focusing on doing things properly and leaving nothing just to it being an easy enough area. Ie making sure my compass bearings were accurate and that I had a decent plan for each control.
A large bubble has arrived in my compass which was affecting it quite a lot, therefore borrowed a str8 one for the day
Also new shoes they are vv nice (new Inov8 graphite grip ones)
