Needed to find a toilet so formed part of the warmup.
Delayed start, had planned to train earlier but due to very heavy rain we moved forward the reconnaisance of Nairn & Forres. Worked out well as rain had cleared by the time we got to Elgin.

Course Brits used for their selection races.
Started ok and was happy with the first part of the course on Map 1. Not running too fast though so didn't have that pressure of making decisions really fast. And was able to see the streets.
Then swapped to the second part of the course which had a lot more controls on it.
Could probably have done 10 and 11 better along with the exit towards 12.
Went a long way to 13 as the control circle covered a gap that if I'd seen I would have used.
Also went the long way around to 21 as on the map I received from the organisers had the area in between 20 and 21 in olive green, so just went around. Had also noticed at this stage that some of the control sites still had tags on them.
Didn't really have any issues on this course but not moving fast enough.

Euromeeting 2013 Course
DNF, missed a control
Start was into the housing estate which I enjoyed, tricky orienteering. Again not moving too fast, legs tired. As i'd looked at the map a couple of times before I had it in my head that once at 11 it was out to the open and run along the edge of the field towards the quarry. So didn't realise that 12 was in between 11 and the quarry, oops. Not happy with this afterwards. Thats twice recently i've missed controls on a course, a new habit that I don't want to keep.
The quarry was difficult without controls as some of the single trees weren't that distinct. Missed 17 slightly direction wise after turning left off the path. Was moving very slowly in the quarry.
