9 AM

Orienteering 1:33:56 [5] ***** 10.5 km (8:57 / km) +280m 7:54 / km
20c shoes: Oroc X-Talon 230 Flame

SO. MANY. CLIFFS. This race started off really well, and except for a minor bobble on #5 where I interpreted the map wrong, it was quite clean. Picked the ridgeline approach to #8 which I was happy about, and eventually found #9 after spotting the streamer. Then things started going sluggish, maybe partially because I wasn't drinking enough, and I started moving slower and making silly mistakes, like completely losing contact with the map @ #15 (found #17 first) and some other whacky stuff. If the race had been mebbe a mile longer then it wouldn't have ended so well, so I really gotta work on distance and endurance...

Orienteering 39:34 [5] ***** 4.3 km (9:12 / km) +150m 7:50 / km
10c shoes: Oroc X-Talon 230 Flame

MORE. CLIFFS. EVERYWHERE. Gave this race my absolute all, and apparently it still wasn't enough to beat Matej (by 1:21... salty 'bout that...). Picked a super weird combination of controls that wasn't distance efficient at all but it was fast and navigatable... Around the seventh control my body started telling me I shouldn't be pushing myself like this in the form of a bunch of leg cramps, but thankfully those relented until later. Overall, except for a 1-1.5ish mistake on #83, it was a clean race and even if I hadn't messed up it would have been tough to beat Matej...

Orienteering race 1:10:49 [5] ***** 10.21 km (6:56 / km) +255m 6:10 / km
20c shoes: Oroc X-Talon 230 Flame

Bleh. Double-layered compression socks plus another layer of socks to tuck my O-pants made the arches of my feet feel like fire, then turn numb. So that was fun... Enough excuses, other than that it felt a lot like a running race, and since yours truly sucks at running races, the result was somewhat to be expected. Gotta train more... xD

Orienteering race 19:50 [5] ***** 2.66 km (7:27 / km) +105m 6:13 / km
12c shoes: Oroc X-Talon 230 Flame

Gah. Much better race than the morning blowout even though the arches of my feet still felt bad. It felt good to spike controls consistently, but the flat part at the end when running on fumes was exhaustiinngg....

Nothing like running with a vendetta. Tired so I tried out some other music; not usually much of a TOP fan but Pet Cheetah by Twentyone Pilots really hit the spot today.

Right brake still acting up a little so I might go easy on it a for a bit.
