Orienteering race (Middle) 1:07:28 [3] 4.6 mi (14:40 / mi) +270m 12:24 / mi
shoes: Inov-8 330 Mudclaw

Nice hilly forested terrain. Realized at control 3-4-5 that my eyes weren't seeing the brown contour lines very well. Looks like it's time I bring either reading glasses or a magnifying lens. Overshot 6 and went downhill, only to realize it was uphill: painful climb back up to punch it. For 7, it was a disaster, and totally got wrong on my assumptions on where I was.

On the long leg 12-13, went uphill and stayed on the high ridge to then descend. Had some concerns about figuring which marsh to look into, and was careful in slowing down and reading the map and recognizing terrain features. Maybe going downhill to the trail and attacking from there might have been better.

Orienteering race (Sprint) 23:09 [3] 3.65 mi (6:21 / mi) +30m 6:11 / mi

What a fun sprint on a school campus. After the first control, wasn't sure how to get over the wall in direction SW, and just stood there for a few seconds, but got the clue by watching other competitors, and reached the steps leading to the canopy area.

After 15, started going clockwise around the fenced field, but then realized it was better to go counter-clockwise.

Wasted valuable time looking for 17. Definitely went into out-of-bounds after exiting 18. After 19, maybe should have gone straight W to the end of the fence, and then punched the Go control, located SE from the fence.
