Control clearing/setup 20:00 [3]
shoes: Inov Oroc 280

Orienteering race 51:59 [3] ** 5.73 km (9:04 / km) +95m 8:23 / km
shoes: Inov 340 Pair #1

The day was nice but damp and I had an on-and-off run. Slow on the first few controls probably losing 50s and 20s unnecessarily on contrils 1 and 3. Control 9 took what should have been a good route tending W of the line over the end of the spur. I learned that on some maps white and green are actually the same color. Honeysuckle and fallen trees to 2' in diameter made this slow going (>1 min 30s lost?). My big mistake was a directional problem in some open forest exiting the grove W rather than S right at control 12. The added loop ate 4 min and 12.5 m of climb.

Orienteering race 34:28 [3] ** 4.13 km (8:21 / km) +71m 7:41 / km
shoes: Inov 340 Pair #1

Mostly decent running and simple navigation as the second run for the day. One ridiculously big error on control 4: on compass through green and got to the trail but went N instead of south. The choice seems inexplicable except that I had thought that I had mistakenly cut across the linear grove. After getting back on track my irritation unleashed a second abortive attempt for the control before getting it right. Argh!
