Orienteering race 50:52  7.2 km (7:04 / km)
shoes: Icebugs Spirit OLX 2
CST Tankersley 6.7km. Not my type of area. Never felt like I got going but steady was what I needed to do today, wasn't a day for going really fast. I thumbed my map like crazy and basically just ran around path to attack point to every control. JT told me to think of it like an urban. Never felt like I properly got going. Had a strategy and stuck to it and got best points realistically could have though. Actually did better than expected on course but should have been closer on time to those ahead. Time loss on 9 where I was slightly further across than expected, 15 there was no path to follow....I was really hesitant, slightly off and looked on wrong feature. 17 I went round the high fence but there was a gap. 24 forgot which control I was at. Just before 28 I was stung by multiple what we think was bees (stings left and painful, not removed until after finished) which wasn't pleasant and proceeded to lose concentration and ran out of control wrong way losing a min on probably easiest control on course! Annoying but didn't make a difference to result. Mentally good as didn't put pressure on myself, stress or worry about fitness or ability etc.
