Orienteering 59:25  5.62 km (10:34 / km) +301m 8:20 / km
First (and most likely only) event on a new map at Neath.
Thought it was really challenging - it went from quarry type terrain, to cliffs, to pine forrest, to scrubby Newcastle bush, to complex erosion gullies and then cycled through various times.
The only one i wasn't real happy with was #5 as i went up the wrong gully and forgot that rocks can be classed as high points. Lost about 1min here.
After that i was slow - didn't help that i stepped on a rock funny on the side of my foot, causing my ankle to then be super sensitive when put into the same position throughout the rest of the course.
Coming into my second last control, i was in a train with one lady, Jenny.E and Andrew.H. The other lady and Jenny overshot the control but somehow i spiked it. Andrew said he thought i was just hesitating until he looked past me and saw the control, then he's like "good girl, Sal". Then he ran with Jenny and i out of the control and then got confused when we ran over to another control as our second last one was his last one. Then I turned my brain off and Andrew and I let Jenny lead us to the finish, which was a mistake as we drifted too far right, meaning that we got caught between the string course and the finish flag. Jenny picked her way through the string course but Andrew and i just decided to run around it.
