It was a middle distance event today and I didn't have a very good run.
You can see my course and route on RouteGadget here
. I was 14/27, the winner did 25:05 somehow.
#1 Rushed it and ended up in wrong reentrant, soon relocated. Lost 30s.
#2 Drifted south to wrong reentrant. Lost 30s.
#4 Followed river up ok but wasted time looking round the wrong clump of trees. Lost 1 min.
#6 I was a bit hesitant and could have gone a bit faster. Though going fast caused earlier problems. Lost 10s.
#7 Aimed between hills straight to control but somehow ended up on wrong hill! Weird. Lost 1 min.
#8 Drifted off bearing, got confused when hit fence. Should have realised quicker where I was as hadn't passed powerline. Lost 45s.
#9 Mistakenly climbed up hill to NE rather than one to N. Then turned right at end of hill and ended up further from control. Relocated off fence. Lost 1 min.
#10 Went round path to S of green hill then climbed up to #10. Should have gone straight. Lost 2 mins.
#11 Hit control at crag W of control before #11. Lost 15s.
#13 Wasted time exploring green hill W of #13. Lost 1 min.
I had a good run in with Simon.
So lost approx. 8 min 30 sec which is quite poor for a middle distance. I wasn't being careful enough and started too fast.
