Orienteering 1:30:00 [3] 12.0 km (7:30 / km) +550m 6:06 / km

Glen Tanar Training. Good session with only one big mistake due to lack of concentration. Compass work between controls with blocked out legs. Good challenge. Drifted of bearing to feature on one leg resulting in the mistake and was slow in the circle on a couple.
Microsprints, ran off the map on the first and took 10.5mins, second one I nailed and only took 5.5mins! Good for trying to create a plan in a short amount of time.

Analysis taking into consideration that legs were blanked out unlike this map.
Course 1

First control fine small pause 100m early. Second one, let control on bearing which was a few degrees out but halfway along the leg (circled in red) i headed off towards an enticing reentrant, ignoring my bearing.
Rest were fine and pleased with my execution of the leg after the mistake

Course 2

All good to 1, good straight bearing to 2 bu dithered in circle. Ok to 3 as well although not as straight. Contoured to 4 and was pleased with how accurate i was. Straight-ish to 4, thought the gps trace may have been more of a straight line as i felt in control the whole time. Acceptable to 5 but a bit all over the place back and forth.

Aim for next few weeks is really good clean compass work instead of just acceptable.

Running hills 38:20 [3] 6.4 km (5:59 / km) +275m 4:56 / km

Dark, cold, snowy and end of the week, little motivation to head out in such grim conditions but I did. Three times round the classic knockfullerfree steep loop ( about 70m of climb at 24% each loop). Taking it nice and easy whilst trying to stay upright in the snow.

Running 1:28:50 [3] 15.1 km (5:53 / km) +560m 4:58 / km

Snow day so had the time to do one run instead of two shorter activities. A bit of snow at home but nothing much so headed out towards Corrennie. Probably just enough on main tracks to ski but would be marginal. Took in a few trails before heading up through 2ft snow drifts on main track to reach top before having fun bounding down the deep snowy heather.

Orienteering 1:04:00 [3] *** 8.0 km (8:00 / km)
spiked:9/13c slept:8.0

DNC Potarch. Remove the first two and last two controls and I would have had a near perfect run. Controls 2-9 was the best night o have have ever run, smooth, fast and accurate. Horrific mistakes at 2 and 10 but I will take away the positives from the good orienteering in the middle.

Turns out i was fastest from 2-9 by 90s, quite pleased with this as it shows when I am concentrating i can be quick.

Rest was shocking, should trust compass more.
