Orienteering 1:36:36  6.85 mi (14:06 / mi) +646m 10:54 / mi
Day 1. Pleased that my steady approach was proving dividends early on. Knew that I would be running much slower than the better guys but I was just happy to find flags where I was expecting them to be. All went tits up however at one control where I lost 13 minutes - it was a crag in amongst lots of other crags and I simply couldn't find it. Must have got within 15 meters twice during 2 sweeps of the hillside but ended up having to run 30 m up a hill to relocate (where I thought I was) and to come in on a precise bearing. Frustrating. Also I earnt myself a nice scratch across the face for my efforts. Fun but annoying at the same time.
