Running warm up/down 10:00 [2] 1.0 mi (10:00 / mi)
shoes: O-Icebug - Black Spirit II OLX

Only a few minutes - when 20-30 would've been better - of warmup before the Sprint. Good atmosphere in the chilly quarantine, but not good focus before the start.

Then, closer to 10 minutes of warmup for the relay - in the quarantine - mostly running plus a good bit of stretching out. Legs feeling well used, but had enough gas for one last go round.

Orienteering race 16:22 [4] 3.0 km (5:27 / km)
shoes: O-Icebug - Black Spirit II OLX

Got my head in the game for the first control, but then fell behind on reading the map and took to many safe routes around - missing a few short-cuts, one good around route, and not realizing until Boris mentioned after in our relay prep., that straight through the woods was best.

NAOC Relay, 1st leg, and a great race for me.

Trounced out the start chute - as I expected (though I was hoping it wouldn't have been that bad... ;), but 1st to # 2 by virtue of tight, compass-following navigation (per a Boris suggestion I realized worked great for me in the AM Sprint.) Through the arena on the way to #4 - in 2nd ahead of both Canadian teams was absolutely great - with the roar of the crowd and the redemption for being there, even though I was so slow out of the start :)

The rest of the race was similarly hard pushing, and really, really clean - the 1:4000 map, plus focused compass + contour reading worked excellently, so the faster Canadian 'kid' - who I watched run away from me in the 2nd (common) lap didn't get too far ahead by the end of the course (where I never saw him, due to different forking.)

Biggest mistake was about 5-10 sec, 2nd biggest was under 5 sec. Super clean.

Very proud to score some points, helping team USA win the overall cup!
