Running (Warm Up) 15:00 [3]

Orienteering race (Middle) 34:09 [4] 3.45 km (9:54 / km)

I am really happy with this race! As advised, I didn't think about my speed at all and just focused on my navigation. It paid off big time. I made three bobbles (more detail to come after course review), but I am happy with my route choices and quick decision making. I also got a crown and a fall-themed bouquet at my first flower ceremony so that was pretty cool.

I think I took a slightly slower route to 2 (north on the trail than jumped over at the bend). I saw Emma at 4 so I lost focus (and time) going to 5. I chose to go north of the lake on 6 to avoid the gross yellow/green. I think I took the slower route choice to 7 also. I went between the two lakes and then looped around on the trail. I thought it had a nice approach though... I was with Addie at 8 and we both were on the wrong hill but figured it out pretty quickly. I went to the more northern green patch on 9, but again, not a huge problem or waste of time. 12 and 13 weren't perfect but I only lost a few seconds on each one. I need to work on visualizing the control circle to cut down those lost seconds.

So... looks like I had more problems than I thought, but none of them cost me over a minute. I'm aware that the seconds add up though.

Running (Warm Up) 15:00 [3]

Orienteering race 28:33 [4] 3.3 km (8:39 / km) +105m 7:28 / km

It is rare for me to have two good races in a row, but that's exactly what happened this weekend. I had to yell at myself in the beginning to stay focused and have confidence in my navigation and distance estimation. I spent too long figuring out which side of the marshes to run along on my way to #4, but I think I made a good choice by going south. I caught Will who had started two mins ahead of me at 5 and nearly had a heart attack (he seemed a little upset... :D). He booked it out of the control and after trying to keep up for him for a few minutes I decided focusing on my own navigation would be best. I saw him briefly on the trail to #7 (I think I had a more efficient exist from #6), but after that he was gone. The last loop was hard on me physically; there's plenty of room for improvement on that side of things. Overall a spectacular weekend, and it was great to see my O buddies.
