Orienteering race 1:45:37  **** 9.2 km (11:29 / km) +300m 9:52 / km
Red 1 WRE (first world points for me, hopefully)
Pretty bad race overall. these woods were awful, green and deadfall everywhere. got caught in those thorny vines quite a few times acquiring nice bloody battle wounds.
about my orienteering;
started out positive but already making mistakes on 1, 2 b/c i'm not reading the map as closely as i should have. Meeting up with Sam on 2 who started 8-10? min before me. I know I prefer O-ing by myself but it was hard to resist running harder to stay with Sam. So more mistakes followed 6, major blow on 7 (going too low but thinking i was already in the right ditch). i probably gave up mentally after that and was tired of fighting through the green so not orienteering well for the rest of the course. bad route choice to 9 going straight (so stupid), past 10, confused on 13....
anyway, its been a while since i was soo glad to be finished with a course. I honestly did not enjoy these woods.
Strength + Stretch 5:00 
my ankle was hurting quite a bit after i finished (front left side); i don't remember twisting it majorly on the course, but maybe some minor twists plus bad footing accounted for this bruising and swelling, which only appeared after day 2 run.
