9 AM

Orienteering race (sprint) 25:26 [4] *** 2.1 km (12:07 / km) +63m 10:32 / km
spiked:18/20c shoes: Jala Jukola Spider 6 #3

England-Idlewild map, Burlington, KY. Temp about 50, cloudy

Ran F21/Red. No sense running Brown/Green sprints as I'm not a runner. So my philosophy is just run the slightly longer one and get more practice.

I was an early starter; the first control at a field edge had the wrong code; another control 40 meters away (and on the opposite side of the road(!) had my code; I punched both. Lost about 30-40 seconds in bafflement. So split to 2 is actually from the tree control to the SW. Fixed for later runners. Small time loss for me so didn't bother to protest.

Good through 7, then bobbled the exit to 8 and took the long way around.... Slipped on hill between 14-15 and got muddy but not hurt. Fun. :-) No FR.
1 PM

Orienteering race (middle) 1:12:12 [4] *** 3.8 km (19:00 / km) +130m 16:13 / km
spiked:16/21c shoes: Jala Jukola Spider 6 #3

Ugh. Last in F50; I can do better and will try to do so tomorrow.

Good starting out and through 8. Glen caught me around 6 but then had errors on the next two and passed me again to 9 where I was confused by the vegetation in the field. This is also where I stopped checking my compass consistently so something to work on tomorrow. Misread veg to 10 (1-2 min), okay to 11, disaster to 12 with a lousy plan. The FR will show the sad story (relocated twice from trail to east). Good to 13 despite lack of white woods where mapped so I used light green instead. Lousy plan again to 19 and 20 got me stuck where I shouldn't have been.

Tomorrow: plan, compass, keep head in the game. Forecast high temp of 75 tomorrow but only 50s early.

EDIT: Added FR data. 5.679 km / 116 m climb
