Orienteering 45:00 [3] 3.8 km (11:51 / km)

Wee training session at Airds Park collecting the Scotjos markers from about 3+ months ago.......

Hands down the wettest and marshiest run I’ve ever had with the water/mud never below my ankles, knee deep in places this really not being helped by the 1-10cm of snow on the ground. Felt ok going round spending about a minute at each trying to undo the markers (where they still existed) definitely the wettest i’ve been without fully swimming.

Running 15:00 [2] 1.5 km (10:00 / km)

Wee jog up the track (stream) to the start then back at the end.

Orienteering 57:00 [3] **** 6.0 km (9:30 / km) +250m 7:52 / km

Wee training run at Arisaig with about 10cm of snow despite the fact we were only about 100m above the sea.

Started off with a line course up part of the hill then down and along into the further section of the map and nto a control pick. Felt good until then, a bit slow but fairly accurate. Decided to cut short because of the rather dark black snow clouds pouring in from the south. ended up going pretty much straight line on all of the legs anyway simply because there was nothing but more bog, contours and rock.

Note to self: good compass - still need to work on it in circle however

Running 25:00 [2] 2.0 km (12:30 / km)

Wee jog to start and back from finnish

Orienteering 48:51 [4] 6.4 km (7:38 / km)

Event at Loch Vaa

Started off ok (if a bit chilly) along the track then into the forest. Drifted left across to far and got a bit confused by the 'semi open' so had to double back and go in about 2 mins lost. Straight to 2 nailed it on a compass. went to the hill on the track then into the forest by the large wide hill. took a bearing to the large re-enterants and then another bearing in. Came a wee bit the far west but almost perfect. Nailed #4 straight. Went along the edge of the open then next to the hill before cutting past the open to #6. Took a rough bearing to the open and then ran along picking up the detail felt good, came in a bit low in the circle V minor though. Across the open and up to the little bit with the depression to #7. Came out a bit to the left which didn't help but thinking the control was on a hill contributed to a large part of the mistake as I could probably see it but was looking for a hill. Went to far west and bounced back off of the green blobs back in to #8. Nailed #9 on the compass. Nailed #10 along the line of hills then below the boulder and down the side of the tiny ridge. Too #11 stright. Up the re-enterant to 4 then above 3 and into the re-enterant to #12. Went around the side of the hill leading me nicely along the side of the marsh and in to #13. cut to the track and up it for a bit, giving my legs a rest if nothing else. contoured around and got #14. then straight down to #15.

Note to self: try and hold baring a bit better possibly slowing down a bit to stop drifting.
