Orienteering 1:15:00  5.0 km (15:00 / km)
Well today it was either rest or orienteering and orienteering won! Just couldn't bear thought of doing nothing. I went to Leg of Mutton, making an effort to keep off tracks, pay attention to terrain/map and also "jog" (although that was impossible in places with slippery piles of logs etc.) Rain held off but left leg played up on the many awkward cross slopes. I ended up abandoning after 3km due to leg.
Start to 1: good, I managed to go around the 'green' and cut in at the right place, although I found 2 lumps of bare rock and ended up clicking both.
1 to 2: good, down track, cut in along creek, followed up and found cliff.
2 to 3: poor, tried contouring round but only went about half as far as I needed to. Then I clicked wrong rock and headed to track. Realized I had been in the wrong place but decided to carry on rather than go back.
3 to 4: good, realized leg was really bothering me but navigated well, leaving track, going along creek then up a bit, picking up a boulder, crossing another creek and then to cliff.
4 to 5: poor, I got to track junction, counted paces down and headed off thinking I'd be able to find the pit based on contours and aspect of the hill. Didn't. Went to track and looked for irrigation ditch to lead me in. Didn't find the ditch. Cut in randomly and used the junction of a creek and reservoir. Still had trouble. Was looking for small patch of green to use as final attack point for pit but the pit ended up being in the small patch of green (presumably a different patch and the 'real' patch was missing!).
5 to 6: uncertain, I may have ended up on edge of control circle at a different cliff, but otherwise all was good, I had followed track, left in right spot, gone about far enough and found a cliff!
6 to 7: poor, I was getting tired and leg hurt. I didn't go far enough contouring round, realized I hadn't found saddle but there was a spur that might have fitted! So I made it fit!. Was also sucked in by a gully that COULD HAVE been the main gully marked, but wasn't. In fact it didn't show up on the map at all, although was a really distinct gully feature. Wandered a bit to find track, then decided to abandon due to leg. Jogged back since keeping leg stable on flatter surface was possible. Think I need to massage it etc.
Orienteering was probably better than doing nothing but didn't feel very satisfied with navigation, a bit irritating having apparently hurt left leg on the awkward slopes and would rather have run! Also starving hungry and a bit 'weak' (extra food before and after isn't cutting it! But improvements in other areas, mainly digestive, so will keep going with experiment!)
