Orienteering race (Scottish 6) 48:28 [5] 6.32 km (7:40 / km) +205m 6:36 / km

A huge big fell, 6th position in this race... dodgey start overan control no.1 but then ending up getting back into the the flow agagin and hitting all controls well to no.6 where i hesitated and read a stream as another one recovered from this mistake and started to speed up all good apart from two dodgey controls at the end where i was distracted by the amount people going a different way! lost about 4 or more minutes in this race!


First ever scottish 6! Good banter and 3 average races and one i was really pleased with! finished 7th out of 75 in the end 2 first year m16 just got beaten to 6 th place by dane (1 point) beat him 4 times but he got two 4th's so he had me in the end.

Orienteering race (Scottish 6 day 5) 52:59 [5] 6.18 km (8:34 / km) +175m 7:31 / km

really scrappy race went well to start with hitting most my contols well was in 1st after 2 controls ...soo to end as i was a bit shabby on 3...i was on the right hill but because of the bracken i couldn't see it, got back into it making a mistake later on where i got distracted by a train of people going to one control when mine was 200m to the left this made me look at the map a bit more and i lost like 1 minute just standing there. toward the end of the race i made like 3-4minutes of mistakes misreading a contour line how high up it was and then the last control running up a hill when i simply could of ran around it. 8th out 75 ...(still top ten at least)

Orienteering race (Scottish 6 day 4) 59:29 [5] 7.0 km (8:30 / km) +350m 6:48 / km

Although the map said there was 260m we roughly counted the contours and there was more like 350m.Really happy with this race although i made a few early mistakes overruning no.1 and then taking a bad route choice to no.2-that was about 2-3 minutes lost I felt i orienteered well and ran well! only a little mistake later on where i went to check a control even though i knew it wasn't mine lost about 20 seconds and i did the same on another control. Considering i was an early starter it was unfortunate as i had to bash down all the bracken, I think i lost about 3 minutes from this ontop of about 3 minutes of mistakes. Best race of the week.
