Race Evaluation

OOC Kingsmere, Gatineau Park: Long advanced


1. Having completed short course, I was tempted by trail-run leg 8 & ran again. Changed shoes and socks.
2. Not wanting to lose the SI results from my 1st run, I punched manually & used stopwatch which only has 8 lap memory.
3. Ran too fast
My pace through CP3 was strong, having already visited sites. From CP2, S to TransCanada Trail then N on parkway & ran beyond CP3, as I did in 1st event.
4. My pace lessened as next controls required actual orienteering.
5. I plodded alongside John Ranson, lost sight of John & was about to double back when Cherie flew by, straight to control.
6. Trail running but soon encountered many controls from some other event.
7. Followed remnant trail to road but then had to jump back over barbed wire.
8. +00:30Messed around leaving 7 W to trail for long long trail run on NW & N paralleling trails. This may be first time ever on these trails which were hillier then expected. S on parkway then into woods across from cliff & follow wide along creek system. Slowed at control as Cheryl was looking for lost dibbler.
9. Will be interested to compare this leg with short course result.
10. Pushed brain too hard & had trouble w/ bearing leaving control 9. This time I avoided the freezing water looking for dry crossing. Deer and orienteers crowded the crossing place.
F. Bad compass work
I then blew the finish leg heading too far S & missed cart path. My first finish leg was best of all but I blew this one by pushing faster than I could think.

Total Time Lost - 00:02:30
