Orienteering long (Tollymore) 3:46:56  *** 15.7 km (14:27 / km) +870m 11:19 / km
Irish Long-O Race 3.
a great course to finish a great series.
it was all about endurance, enjoyment & navigation after yesterdays efforts, as there wasn't much running left in the legs.
splits might be a bit here or there, found it tough going up to controls 1 & 2 but navigated well. 3 was a nightmare as i overcomplicated the navigation & spectacularly failed (relocated at least 3 times & still had to come down onto track &then back up)
4 & 5 were grand but really had to dig deep to push on to 6 knowing that i was only going higher &further away from start/finish. i wasn't going to have rtd after just these few controls. 7 was v.slow, little running, 8 grand.
concentration went on the short legs, overran 9 badly, mind &map were playing games into 10 & wasn't clean into 13 (11 & 12 were fine)
a long walking leg over to 14, finished bars & gel (could see flag from long way out) went high to stay above the wet &dropped down on to 15.
rest of the course went fine, no walking but maybe down to about 50% pace.
Really enjoyed the course & the series, Big thanks to all involved.
