NAOC Middle Distance. I was cautious to 1 and having a bit of trouble staying on my compass. The extra start and people threw me off even though I worked hard to ignore them. Made a parallel error going to #2 and hit the pond. may have only been a 1-2 minute mistake, but then I compounded it by running off the wrong side of the pond and getting quite confused and lost. Wandered around and then found a control and figured out its feature. Was on the hill by the pond, again, and then cautiously went to my control, never quite believing I was where I thought I was. Cautious on the next few, which made me slower than usual, but I didn't have any trouble finding them. I think I was subconsciously worried about running through the arena so far behind. I did something funky in my brain and tried to run for #9 before #8, but then got confused. All there witnessed my confusion :) Was almost at 9 when I ran back for 8 and continued. Clean rest of the course but I didn't have the spirit in me. I have a rule of no giving up in orienteering, as you never know how others are doing. This was a hard rule to follow today and, although I didn't follow it perfectly with running speed, I navigated cleanly and smart through the last loop.

I wore my new ankle brace today and it gave me a blister on the inside of my foot which was rubbing the whole way. The blister means I will tape the ankle instead for the rest of the week.
