Orienteering race (Wisconsin practice Hepcat) 1:40:28 [4] *** 5.0 km (20:06 / km) +160m 17:19 / km
14c shoes: Black regular street shoes

Kettle Moraine State Park, friday.

This is my first race in this terrain. I didn't make any mistakes longer than a little over 5 minutes (surprise!).

The first control was missing, so I spent about 5 minutes looking for it.

I drifted waay off on #4. I made everything match perfectly until I reached a powerline/trail junction, and the junction didn't match where I should have been. I stood at the junction for a long time trying to decide if I had really drifted that far or if the junction was mapped wrong. It probably overall cost me a little over 5 minutes.

On #6, I ended up at #10, which is about 30 degrees off. I fixed it quickly once I checked the control code.

Out of #6, I drifted again. This time, I knew that I must have drifted, because it took me forever to get to the power line. I felt myself slowing down around when I should have reached the power line, and at one point I thought I might have ran past it without noticing. When I did get to the power line, I had to stop for a while to figure out where I was, especially since I could have been off the edge of the map.

Around #8 and #9, a pack started to form. Me and another person were pretty much within sight most of the time for the rest of the course, and 2 other people pulled out ahead of us. I think we prevented each other from making any medium to large mistakes.
