Running warm up/down 10:00 [1]

Gentle warm-up. So nice to see people I haven't seen in a long time!! Tom took Sylvia to the finish to make friends. Tom's parents and sister and brother-in-law all came to spectate. Not the awesomest, but think they saw me twice from the distance before finishing at least!

Orienteering race 15:40 [4]

Well, cool! Pleased to run decently fast and pleased I remembered how to sprint orienteer.

1 - Didn't even see the woods route. Not sure if it would be worth it to Red's first control, looks like it was to Blue's.
2 - Took right route. Wasn't terribly yellow along fence, but not slow either, so ok.
3 - Left route. Small error, didn't take stairs, which saved distance.
4 - Left route.
5 - Left route and took stairs this time, but now looking I kinda like right more.
6 - Right route. But eep! Construction! Saw the Blue control first, remembering the instructions that the control was supposed to be inside was outside and marked on the map. But it wasn't the right number. So looked up, saw the actual fence and control I was looking for and continued on to them. Think this confused most runners on Red.
7 - Right route. Feeling like I'd like to be running faster.
8 - Right route. Now maybe like left better. At least would have been more fully in the shade.
9 - Fine.
10 - Right route.
11 - Happy to run under the shade canopy!
12 - 1st small mistake: almost ran down hill the wrong direction (E instead of NE). 2nd small mistake, came out into the open quad when I meant to run N between the two rows of dorms.
13 - Fine, flipped map on way there to see what was up next.
14 - Fine, definitely feeling more tired!
15 - Choose left. Now like right more.
16 - Left route, still more shade-running under canopy.
17 - Fence helped not stop to early to check things out.
18 - Fine.

So yeah, only small mistakes. Perhaps some non-optimal route choices, but all of the route choices to me seemed like fairly close calls.
