spiked:12/22c shoes: Salomon Contagrip Fell Shoes

*GARMIN- 9.1km, 524m climb

Good event and a great map
A lot of the mistakes were due to lack of confidence after yesterday + some more bearing mistakes (most of them downhill of the control)
So need to plan better and concentrate on compassing, also I didn't run very fast again to save energy but was fine.

2- Bearing off + overshot, didn't see tower (40s)
3- Overshot + missed tower (20s)
4- Was put off by early mistakes so saw a control and went to it, wrong one (45s)
9- I was looking on the wrong section of Crtl description (road crossings) so found it and went on looking. (1min)
(Jack caught me up)
11- Bad bearing (30s)
12- Overshot, bad bearing (30s)
13- Overshot, bad bearing (20s)
14- Couldn't find a gap in first fence (5s)
- Went too far up the path so had to double back (20s)
- Bad bearing into it (20s)
(Jack overtook me)
16- The veg boundary was deceptive so overshot (50s)
19- Tried to navigate by features but should have taken a bearing because they were very vague.

Total: 7min 10s (Bad again)
