Ran the green course sprint at the England - Idlewild Park....ran ok ... not great.... finished 28th had goofs at # 8,13, 14 and 16 most because of bad routes.... and over shot bag.... need to do more work with 1-5000 maps....
3 PM

Orienteering race (Green Middle course) 1:58:45 [3] 3.8 km (31:15 / km)

Lost my mind out there at the Middle Green course at the F. Pig..... at England - Idlewild....Map was a 1-5000 map got to 1 ok and then it went down hill from there... headed out across a to the southeast.... bad move should have headed up to road due south.... and it would have been cake..... got all turned around and turned back and then again went back through the field... bad move..... hit the control and the next 7 controls clean.... then at # 10 a whole lot of people were looking around ... saw a trail bag had to be here... No wrong ... an unmapped trail.... found it but had lost a ton of bag ok... headed off through a field with a big group of people....bad move needed to make a plan that would work for me ....should have headed north got on trail headed east to big re-ent....and then follow it south ....that how at last found it... as Glenn T. said with a 1-5000 map what looked long was real short.... but I got lost in the jungle and turned around again and again.... and it was so bad I thought about just finding a safe way home and the hell with the race..... I was able to find where I was and did what I should have done in the first place ... boy it easy when you open your eyes .....and have a plan ... I thought I was over these blow ups.... now behind in time on course and tired .... get through the rest of the course but with some bad routes..... But just was able to get in... and not DQ.....but placed second to last....# 52 nd ..... in talking to some folks after some good runners were saying the on this course you needed to use the Veg. as a way to tell where you were along with the trails .... there were alot not on the map.... This something I have never done before.... so I will have to work on that skill... so much to learn and so little time !!!!
