Orienteering Sessions on long run. Analysis to follow.
Areas were as follows; Corsearder and Tom's Cairn, Shooting Greens(the good bit!), west end of Glen dye and Woods of Easter Clune
Focuses was on compass work, mostly went well, and pleased how it is improving.
-All good except mistake on way to 3, was on a good bearing but for some reason peeled of to turn down slope, still not sure why i did it as my bearing was fine.
-Got caught up in gorse at far end which made bearings impossible.
-Not running real quickly but was in total control, a few good bearings but was often having to avoid trees/bracken so a bit wiggly.
-Got into the flow of things hear had had some nice straight bearings :)
- A few pauses but mainly to look at my tiny map as got the print scale wrong, oops!
Woods of Easter Clune
-Started accurately, but lost concentration a few time, regained it for leg after but 2 bigger mistakes.
-First was in open, bearing was too far off, ended up at a boulder, but no the right one! Should have seen from contours that i was off line.
-Next was to 8 where i overshot and was slightly left. Feeling tired and lost concentration after a good leg to 7.
-Leg to 9 was way off due to not being at 8 and a poor bearing. Missed 10 but 11 to 13 i tried to put my self under pressure and things went really smoothly.
Overall good session which tested my concentration.
Next steps are to keep working on accurate compass work and a bit more visualisation for end of leg accuracy.
