IOC Middle, Castle Archdale, 5.6km, 165m, 22 controls.
Wasn't planning on runnign too hard as I thought I'd be better of saving as much energy as possible for tomorrow and wasn't expecting the area to be enjoyable. However, got into the forest right away and wanted to run as fast as I could - which wasn't actually very fast. No real mistakes but quite a few wobbles, including twice on #6 where I left #5 in the wrong direction and then cut across the felled area into #6, which was okay in itself but then required crossing a combine ditch, hedge and two fences. Also made a mess of getting to the penultimate control. Finished 6th/7th but enjoyed myself.
