Middle. This was not good. One major mistake on 4 when I saw a control directly south of 4, assumed (wrongly) that it was 19, and proceeded on my line for 100m or so until I realized that I was looking in the wrong reentrants. Rats. The rest of the race I made a TON of errors in the control circle, results of getting slightly off my line/not checking my control descriptions/not reading the map closely enough. It's frustrating because I choose specific process goals to focus on for a race based on what I struggle with, but then I end up struggling with other things. How do I make my orienteering good in all aspects? idk

Long at Deer Creek Hills, was overall decent but lots of route choice mistakes where I picked a bad exit, ran for 20s or so, then saw a better route and bent around. Got a little off in places as well. That being said, it's easy for me to look at all the mistakes I make in a race, but I've come a long ways in the last year, and I still have a ways to go. Just gotta remind myself that it's not gonna be perfect yet, and making mistakes is just a fact of the process of improvement.

Sprint at Sierra College. Pretty good except for rc to 10, didn't check the description. My goal was to have a plan before leaving each control and not sacrifice my running speed, and I think I did both. Checked codes for traps on all except 10 RIP, made some rc decisions that were the slower route, some I considered the alternative, some didn't even see it. i felt like this went by extremely fast. Meh?

During a family Costco stop I tried to find the oyster bay regional shoreline or whatever it's called, the road that Google maps claimed went through was blocked by train tracks, crossed them and ended up getting all my mileage in industrial truckyard crap

Stage 4 at Mills College. Fine except for #3 when I got confused halfway that I was going to #2 and had passed it, doubled back, stopped, stood around, realized I just punched 2, lost a good minute and a half. Small bobble on 15. 50-50 in terms of flow/smoothness leaving a control. Legs were kinda tight

Using QuickRoute to analyze my races I'm realizing I'm losing more time when I make mistakes than I thought. To me this means 2 things - when I don't screw up, I'm pretty fast, and when I do screw up, it takes a while. Gonna spend the next few months figuring out how to deal with this.

orienteering race 27:47 [4] 4.6 km (6:02 / km)

Stage 3 at Point Pinole. Tried to push more today. Went well for the most part, but I lost all my time on 10, 12, and 15, when I lost focus, got off, and ended up standing around. Lost ~50s on 10, ~20 on 12, ~55 on 15. Other than that I was running fast and flow was good (mostly), some hesitation here and there tho

Forgot to start my watch AGAIN so only have gps from halfway to #6, up until then I pretty much went straight tho
