Orienteering race 48:15 [5] 5.65 km (8:32 / km) +185m 7:20 / km
shoes: VJ Sports Bold

NAOC Middle

301 controls

2: Identified ridges as the easiest route with the least physical work.
3: Not steady on my direction but I hit the open by the road and things got easy. Entered too early.
6: I was actually going to take a more direct route but went too far left and hit the road. Realized that was a good thing.
8: Bad compass but realized immediately and decided to continue and hit the two hilltops.
10: Didn't make a good plan and ran too quickly at the beginning on a bad compass, should have put more effort towards a good compass. When you see my route go red, I'm not actually that far off but I thought I was, so I aim to hit 13 and try from there. Stop short, although I should have realized that I should keep running until I'm going uphill again. Lost a bit of time there, poor.
11: Went down the wrong spur, couldn't figure it out at the time so went back and tried again down the green spur.
12: Hesitation off of two awful controls.
13: Again, hesitation, but I think this time it was warranted. It helped me fix my direction.
14: Parallel error with the clearings.
15: Good grief does it ever end, just run to the ridge. Even better, run straight, drop down the reentrant, and run along the side of the hill.
16: Ran up the hill only to learn it was at the bottom of it.

Overall a pretty poor race in the second half that reminded me to reduce speed to allow for clean running, like I did in the beginning.

Orienteering race 1:17:53 [5] 10.43 km (7:28 / km) +237m 6:42 / km
shoes: VJ Sports Bold


283 controls


1: Wasn't mentally in it yet. I went between two depressions and the one on my left looked pretty deep so I thought I was by the lake. Turns out I've just been running on 2.5 meter contours in Hungary and Finland and suddenly everything is massive. Oh well, lesson learned.
3: A very clean leg. I could have stayed further to the left of the line but the second of the leg and the approach is well executed.
6: I missed the control by a few meters but turned around. Still good orienteering for an open spur by using the vegetation boundary and staying aware of where the downhill is.
13: Not good enough, wasn't keeping close contact and was extensively using Leif and Michael. Was punished when I didn't know where I was attacking from.
14: Immediately changed my strategy and split off from Leif and Michael to use a different route. Significant improvement in my navigation and arrived at the control at about the same time. Used obvious features (open hills).
17: Didn't make a good enough plan. The cup depressions in the "flat" area by 17 were massive and hindered good navigation because I kept looking for big depressions on the map. If I did it again, I would go left because there's less detail.
18: Hesitated because I thought I recognized the area.
19: Compass
