Middle Earth
unique terrains, maybe 6 different areas

Orienteering race (middle) 39:25 [4] *** 4.23 km (9:20 / km) +156m 7:52 / km
16c shoes: IBugs Python

middle distance in a unique karst area. fast slopes and slow woods. slips the whole way. open slopes were runnable, but I was not running so fast so lost time there. tricky rock outcrops and cliffs were intricate in the mapping and forced a slow approach. some sections were so mucky/muddy that running would definitely land you on your side.
no rain today during my race but there was some prior to starting.
0-4 on rain during my races.

Orienteering race (relay) 22:51 [5] *** 3.51 km (6:31 / km) +64m 5:58 / km
14c shoes: IBugs Python

first leg of 3 person relay (medium difficulty). pavlina running second leg (difficult), viktoria running anchor (easy). we were in the mixed open group and mass started along with several mw 10-12-14 teams.
had a good run, both effort and nav. were steady. side by side with a Finnish boy for all but the first two and last two controls. out maneuvered him at the end for fastest time on course. winning!
I then handed off to our foundation, our rock Pavlina and she blew 12 minutes on a not so difficult cp. viktoria had fastest time on her leg.
overall 3rd by 10 minutes plus.
the rain was once again on and off the entire time.

spent the evening in Auckland down by the "cloud", site of the WMOC registration. had dinner for Viktoria's 32nd birthday. Cake back at the house.

Orienteering race 1:10:52 [4] *** 7.59 km (9:20 / km) +194m 8:17 / km
22c shoes: IBugs Python

it was a great first half and then when the forest cleared up I neglected to use my compass. the technical contour area reminded me of Portugal WMOC long final. physical course, but I was feeling good. just need to hold my focus for another 20 minutes.
