Orienteering race (Scottish 6 Days - Day 2) 1:05:44 [4]

Came 12th at Strathfarrar. Not much fun to be had here - just as much bog as yesterday but on a steep slope with bracken bashing thrown in for good measure once you'd run 2km to the assembly after sitting in traffic for an hour. Holiday orienteering this was not. Had an ok run except for drifting wildly off the map on a long leg through climbing too much on an unmapped walking track. Good job it was open moor as I could relocate off the big features on the map way below. Bit annoying as result would've been ok otherwise.

Running 40:00 [2] 6.0 km (6:40 / km)

Orienteering race (Scottish 6 Day - Day 1) 1:08:21 [4] 12.0 km (5:42 / km)

Came 9th at Achnagour. Pretty satisfied with that as no idea what to expect coming into this race. Went badly off line as soon as I left the first path but got into the map a bit better after that. The first bit was nice forest and I was able to run quite well. Then hit the bog at about 1/3 of the way round and urgh that felt tough. Rest of the course was basically a long flat bog trudge. Kept running but it was a slog. Lost some time (2 mins?) at a weird control in amongst some shooting targets. Looking forward to the rest of the week if my legs can acclimatise to non-spur gully and if the terrain gets less boggy.

Running 15:00 [2] 2.5 km (6:00 / km)

Run to start plus a bit.

Longish run from the cottage to a trig in Rheindown Wood near Beauly. Mainly roads and big tracks. Forest seemed quite nice where not logged.
