Middle distance US-Orienteering Champs: felt so much better than the last 2 days, more confident and wanted to orienteer well now that I know that I can orienteer well in that area. It is very intricate, very much swedish-type in moraine-like woods. Today, there was even more deadfall than yesterday and it was hard to keep a rhythm up and the compass bearing at the same time. Did also follow much the contours (hills, depressions, shoulders, etc on a very small scale).
Was happy with the 44 min and practically no mistake.
All on at least 2300 m with gorgeous weather and the beautiful sawthooth mountains as backdrop.
Hey, just saw that I was fastest woman on brown ahead of F55, F60! A little proud ;-)
Orienteering race 1:46:46  7.05 km (15:08 / km) +69m 14:26 / km
Long-O US Champs: very tough, went slow, Rogaine-style with a water pack on my back. More later. won gold and am happy, of course. Was scared shitless of that difficult area in the wilderness.
Had somehow a breakdown before the start, just could not imagine orienteering and felt absolutely exhausted and worthless for competition. Luckily, Leslie, ran into me and talked to me and gave me some courage back and a plan how to proceed and to bail out if I could not do it at all.
Went out w a pack with water and granola bars and started out slowly, rogaine-style which suited me just fine for today. It gave me confidence that I was "safe". Already to 1 I felt that I could actually read the map, it made sense and I could see what I wanted to see. And on the long leg to 2, I was definitely back to my old orienteering self. The controls kept on coming and I went over the course in a training-pace style. Glad I finished and felt good about it.
Had a mistake to 9 but recovered which ended about being a 5-min mistake.
Hiking 11:30  0.89 km (12:53 / km)
Jog to the start
Orienteering race 21:56  2.95 km (7:27 / km) +1m 7:26 / km
So mad at myself, my head was just off today, very tired. Took 7 before 6 and didn't even realize it. Could easily have gone to 7 again after I punched 6, but no alarms went off in my head which normally they would/should have.
Very disappointed as I thought the sprint was my chance to do well.
I was not sure about the races up in the sawtooth wilderness near Stanley, scared of the terrain, the difficulty, the remoteness, no confidence at all.
