Orienteering race (middle) 51:05 [4] *** 4.9 mi (10:25 / mi)

Open woods. I was doing pretty well at the beginning and I looked ahead to the first long leg 7-8 and saw that I could go around on a ride and a trail. Coming out of 7, I was just following the red line and it was open all the way along the red line. I was thinking to myself "why would I take the ride, it is fast running all along the red-line. Only when I got near the control did I realize that I was following the line from 12 to 13 ( 7 and 12 where the same control). What made the error fatal was that these two legs were the long legs. Made another error later (on the 12-13 leg ! ) when I lost focus and didn't see the 13 flag.

Jogging warm up/down 10:00 [1] 0.8 mi (12:30 / mi)

Orienteering race (classic) 1:17:07 [4] *** 7.4 km (10:25 / km)

Only major mistake was C11: went L around final green hill and didn't turn R enough and ran down to the wrong marsh. Should have gone R there.

Mark V leaves us with a cautionary trail (seen on MrWonderful's log); for C2 it looks like he tried to bounce off the field edge and somehow didn't go far enough W and went N and S before he relocated at the HQ property. I was slightly L of red line on C2. The areas in the woods mapped as open were useful for navigating, but too overgrown to help with speed.

I was literally on my last leg on the last leg. Apparently, my calf can only handle 75 minutes at a time. Do I dare sign up for Billygoat?

Orienteering (control pickup) 30:00 [1] *** 2.0 km (15:00 / km)

Stop to look for Morels on the way home. No luck. Is the season past?
