Orienteering race 1:08:19  5.75 mi (11:53 / mi)
S6D1 - Auchingarrich.
Started off steady and was using compass well to keep on line. Spiked first 10 controls. Longer leg to #11 caught outside of knee on rock and started to really hurt - difficult to put weight on.
Came across flag whilst being very distracted.
Slowly across to #12 but managed to spike. 1min lost due to speed.
#13 also good but half way towards #14 saw Fay Walsh (coach at Deeside) and this distracted me. Rushed final element of leg without checking compass or setting map and then floundered around for 3mins.
Again rushed away from flag and although checked compass was slightly offline. Surprised to find track. Then rushed my turning off as not part of Plan, didn't check compass and another direction error. Relocated quite quickly but another 2mins gone.
Spiked #16 and good line to #17, just couldn't make things fit at the end. Stood for 30 secs working it out.
So good first half and then 7mins binned during second half of course.
