Orienteering race 43:08 [4] 6.5 km (6:38 / km) +150m 5:57 / km
shoes: O shoes

British Relay champs. 1st leg for the SYO 2nd team. After his quality run yesterday, Neil's dad promoted him to the first team with Craney and Oli. I was with Rob and Nick B in the second team and was let loose on 1st leg. It was a completely manic start with loads of classes starting at once, but I ignored everybody else, got the first control spot on and settled into a nice rhythm. Had what seemed like the longer gaffle at the start, and missed slightly at 5 so was a bit behind Craney on the track run to 7, where the gaffles changed. Hit the first control in the green spot on, but then dropped too low on the next one and lost 90 seconds. That left me on my own, and I ran the last section well (apart from trying to go straight on 15 and getting stuck in a load of green crap). Came back in 6th, just over 2 mins off the lead. Rob and Nick had great runs to bring us in 4th, just 1 (one!) second down on Edinburgh Uni in 3rd.
