Orton Bradley. Had little enthusiasm about this (it's a nice place to visit but not exactly fun orienteering) but figured if I stayed home the plan B of going for another park/road run was unlikely to happen either. Lived up to expectations, although the course on paper wasn't too bad. Physically wasn't at all interested in the steep hills, orienteering brain never fully engaged (I think most mistakes were down to lack of focus), then on the legs where things would have otherwise gone well issues with the map or other external factors came into play. Case in point, I think I executed 4-5 almost perfectly, but probably lost the most time on that leg - as executing my route choice perfectly included close to 100m crawling through thinnings knee+ deep when nothing on the map indicated it would be any worse than the mid-green forest that I'd already been through to get to 4. Oh well hopefully that's all my negative orienteering experience over for the year!
