Orienteering (Model) 20:00 [1] 1.6 km (12:30 / km)
slept:10.0 shoes: North Face Gore-Tex XCR

Flying Pig Model at Rentschler Forest. Light rain but warm outdoors. Flat training section but gave a good idea of the terrain. Ground was saturated with water after the night showers. The light green was quite passable though dense in sections. Route choice was important.

Orienteering race 45:50 [4] *** 3.7 km (12:23 / km) +120m 10:40 / km
spiked:16/19c shoes: Adidas ADZ16

Short Pig WRE. Started good but overshoot 3 and reached it with Bash who started 2 minutes behind me. Ran to CP 4 with tail. I was there first so took the clearings rote to CP5. I knew Bash would take another route as tandem racing is not our thing. Got to CP's 5, 6, 8 and 9 with no problem. Completely lost it at CP 10. Nice easy house line in the distance as a hand rail but went south west instead and hit stream. Getting more confused I bailed east and hit 9 again, followed house line and hit 10 readily. CP 11 was straight forward and back on track, hit 12 and 13. On CP 14 went a bit wide to another course's control before going to the correct one. I still swing by wrong controls when I should not, costing time. Hit CPs 15, 16, 17, 18, 19 and finish readily.

Lost about 12 minutes or more with 2 costly errors. Need to be more focused. Running legs felt good though.
