Orienteering race 1:54:38  6.2 km (18:29 / km) +180m 16:09 / km
Overall the race was fine. I felt okay physically and the second half of the race was solid. However, the first half is another story.
Start to 1 was abysmal. It took me 22 minutes to find it. I was too quick to start moving and jumped off the trail too early, ultimately ending up 6 contours below where I wanted to be. I got caught in what you could call a parallel error, but probably not. There were 3 different spurs and I thought there were only 2, so I ended up wandering around, being extremely confused as to why nothing was lining up. Eventually, I finally realized what I should have realized right away and went up to the spur my control was on.
1 to 2 wasn't terrible, but it wasn't good. I was moving really slowly because I was afraid of blowing 2 as well, but I still can't tell you how I got there. However, I ended up at it even though I was a little high.
2 to 3 was also bad. I was too high and I was unsure of where exactly I was so I was moving really slowly.
3 to 4 was good.
4 to 5 I was right on, but I let myself be pulled off to a southern hilltop by someone even though I was in the circle.
5 to 6 and 6 to 7 were good.
7 to 8 was good, but I almost messed up by stopping at the hilltop before it. I also lost 10-15 seconds trying to free my leg because I stepped wrong and got it caught between 2 rocks and a log.
8 to 9 was okay. I was right on, but I was way too hesitant in getting there.
9 to 10 was good.
10 to 11 was good except for when I almost got pulled down into a reentrant which I didn't want to take.
11 to 12 was fine and I managed to not mess up the finish.
