Was supposed to be 2 sets of this but my legs are still pretty done-zo from the weekend and it was a huge effort to keep it under 4 mins per k. Just generally tired.

Two bigger mistakes on #1 and 2 because I wasn't fully into the race yet, and I didn't make a solid plan. On 1 I didn't know where I was on the hillside and went too far left instead of going right. Then on 2 I took a bad route and didn't have a strong attackpoint, and then went off on my compass 90 degrees. Quickly figured it out and focused on making a plan. Everything went really well from there on out!
10 was slow because of the green prickle bushes and was hesitant on 14. Other than that I really picked it up in the second half of the course and was orienteering faster than I have in a while! Felt great to be confident in the woods!
Great weekend overall, thanks to all the organizers!

Holy climb batman! Legs were deadsville even on the first control!
Clean race except for 1 mistake at 14. I ditched my OG plan of going to the trail and then cutting in and ended up getting stuck in some green. I then thought I was lower on the hill than I was so I climbed and ended up hitting the trail... duh. Recovered fairly quickly.
Small hesitation on 2 where I didn't read my description, and then on 4 where I stopped too early.
Other than that I used the trails a lot to run harder since I was dying on the hills. Was feeling confident and was able to look up and match things in the terrain easily. I could pick out exactly what everything was and where I had to go. Great feeling, and better with a big W :)

Buffalo Stampede Invite!
First meet of the season and coach wanted us to just cruise through this one so we don't burn out later in the season, plus it was super toasty. Legs felt pretty dead by the end but finished under 25min which was the goal!
Only room to improve!
