Similar distance and slightly less climb had me a little worried on tired legs from yesterday. However, it turned out the climb was distributed a little better so that I could keep up a jog on all but the biggest hills. Same focus areas as yesterday, and they worked again. This course was one of my favorites ever - some really cool control locations and I felt it was well planned out - it probably helped that it turned into one of my best runs ever too.

I would call this a clean run - I don't really consider anything a navigation or route choice mistake. AP calculates 3 mistakes 1 min or less each.
7 - no idea
17 - one of the really long legs, it went well, but I did stop for water
22 - Right as I approached 21 I heard my ankle snap on the trail. I think the only thing that got me to 21 was momentum. Then exiting i was pretty much paralyzed with pain and went in 3 different directions before i was able to refocus. Pretty painful, but not the worst twist i've had while orienteering, so hopefully it heals in less than 6 months.

Not only best AP score on a classic, but best EVER. Training regime is definitely paying off thanks to my live-in coach :D.
