Lakes Day 4 - Helsington Barrows. Good weather again for the last day and no long walk to the start today ! Was my best run of the week I think, my navigation was the best, except control 8, but that was the only one I had a problem with. I felt good about my run anyway and wasn't last again !

Orienteering race 1:59:50 [5] *** 6.08 km (19:43 / km) +349m 15:19 / km

Lakes Day 4 - Caw Fell. Weather had improved again, thankfully as we had a monster 3km walk to the start. The area itself was also very exposed, so could have been really horrible if bad weather. The course was tough, the terrain also and very technical. I was very careful to ensure I knew exactly where I was at all times. On longer legs, I picked obvious features along the way and navigated one at a time so I stayed on course. Was very tough and lots of climb again, but I was under two hours and I wasn't last again !

Lakes Day 2 - Guards Wood & Tarn Hows South - spoke too soon about the good weather, today it was horrible. It was raining all day, then just after we started it absolutely chucked it down... The woodland was more what we're used to, but the slopes were steep and becoming more and more slippery with the rain. No real mistakes, probably as I was going so slowly due to weather and terrain. Didn't really enjoy it much and was relieved to finish.
