Orienteering race 1:23:35 [4] *** 9.5 km (8:48 / km) +530m 6:53 / km
23c shoes: Inov8 oroc 280

Scottish 6 Days - Day 3, Creag Mhic Chailein.
A tough classic in some great Scottish terrain. My race was mostly good but two mistakes let me down, both of about 1.20mins. c9 I didn't climb enough contours and popped out on a little hill but wasn't sure whether to go left or right. Dithered for a little while before deciding to go left. Hit a wall and realised I needed to go right, doh! The other mistake was right near the end, the second last control where I lost concentration for just a bit (while overtaking my Dad!) and then got quite confused, then relocated but still made quite a mess of getting to the control. Didn't show my dad how it's done - he said I looked like I had no idea what I was doing! Quite right :) Physically it went well until the last 10 minutes or so when I really started to struggle through the marshes.
We had to wear GPS, my route is here:

Orienteering race 30:53 [4] *** 3.7 km (8:21 / km) +140m 7:01 / km
16c shoes: Inov8 oroc 280

Scottish 6 Days - Day 2, Ardnaskie.
2 mistakes, the first on c1 where I ran close but to the wrong small gully and was a bit slow to relocate. Lost ~50secs and was pretty annoyed with myself. Really attacked the course from there and was a tiny bit scrappy on some but running hard and no big problems. Then I lost 1min to c9... decided to go left but didn't concentrate and stayed low, ultimately going around the side of the wrong hill (very small hill). Noticed I was still near a wall so corrected from there. Very silly! Ran well from there and was with Laura through the last few controls. Disappointed with my not-so-perfect race but ended up with 3rd (behind 2 Swedes) as it seems many others came unstuck and lost more time than me.

Orienteering race 1:01:31 [4] *** 7.0 km (8:47 / km) +350m 7:02 / km
15c shoes: Inov8 oroc 280

Scottish 6 Days - Day 1, Dunollie and Dunstaffnage.
Pretty steady run - finished 4th behind three Swedes. Pretty happy with the navigation although it was the least technical of the three days. I pushed moderately hard and tired towards the end due to lack of terrain fitness. Bit slow on the longer legs to c11 and c13. Was fun :)

(rest day)

I had thought that I would run today, but by the time we got to Oban it wasn't exactly early, the clouds were rolling in and I just felt no need...
