Orienteering race (Day One ISVM-Green) 37:40 [5] *** 6.1 km (6:10 / km) +235m 5:11 / km
spiked:10/13c slept:6.0 shoes: Flame Waffles

Felt really focused at the start; knew the direction i was going by watching other runners start. I had a soggy start, (almost losing my shoe in the mud) but the first two controls i hit right on, then i lost my focus and got a little lost going to number 3, (and ended up face-planting myself after tripping on a barbed wire which diden't help my focus). I found the next 4 controls with no trouble, but my mind still wasen't fully engaged (and i tripped and fell over the same wire coming back over the bridge, lol). going to # 8 i started looking ahead one control, and kept on doing that the rest of the course. I started to feel exhausted on my way to eight, and took a really bad route through prickerbushes. I slowed my pace a little at #9, and ran the rest of the course with no mistakes except for going up the wrong stream at number 10. Felt tired at the finish, but knew i had a great race with less mistakes than i usually have. (however, i feel that i must work on my endurance and speed alot more, but hopefully i'll be peaking with those by JWOC)

Orienteering race (Sprint) 18:09 [3] *** 2.7 km (6:43 / km) +50m 6:09 / km
spiked:9/12c shoes: Flame Waffles

I shoulden't have run this sprint, because i was only planning on jogging to conserve my energy and i ended up hurting the arch of my foot by hitting a rock. I hit the first 4 controls with no problem and then i just wasen't focusing hard enough and i ran right past #5, and made a 3 min mistake on #8 by being to far to the left. after 8 the rest of the course was relatively easy.
