Orienteering race (Nobscot) 1:09:03 [3] 6.1 km (11:19 / km)

Much better performance than yesterday. Before going into it, tried to visualize greater success. Did a much better job maintaining map contact, checking features en route, planning ahead, double or triple checking my bearing leaving a control.... Gotta work on efficiency on that last one as I realized my initial bearing out a control is frequently way off and it takes several seconds to converge on the right direction such that everything make sense. Didn't hurt that that woods were more open, the map arguably more accurate, and control placements seemed easier to find. Still, had some trouble distinguishing trails from stone walls and boulders for buildings...

Orienteering race (Estabrook Woods) 1:41:33 [3] 7.0 km (14:30 / km)

Disastrous run on a hot humid day. Spiked 1, the flailed badly to 2. trouble with 10. then ran out of steam from 13 on. Course played to a major weakness which is keeping a bearing through thick stuff. Head wasn't really into the game, and wasn't focused enough on the orienteering to make it work. Nevertheless, kept moving the entire time so bugs where a non-issue. And I finished under 15m/km.
