Orienteering race 1:03:48 [5] 5.1 km (12:31 / km) +280m 9:49 / km
shoes: Nike Air Terra Humara

Knew I'd be in a bit of hurt after Saturday - this green was longer than Saturday's red, and twice as hilly... Decided that I'd not press on any of the hill climbs (in the beginning at least) and ended up following that throughout. Don't think I had more in me.

Did find some routes that minimized the climb at the expense of some distance - and think I made good tradeoffs to do so. 3-4 I followed the road and turned in and up the trail system past the second swamp, and even if I didn't avoid much climb, it was a good navigation effort. 4-5 again, I went down the trail right after 4 and came to 5 from the back side - and missed both the huge climb and intricate hills. 10-11 I used the trail system to the left and think I missed a bunch of ups and downs along the straight path.

One specific error 8-9, I got mislocated on the hills. Recovered in a way I don't know that I've ever done - realized that I could leave the hills west and at the very worst reach the trail to the south - and be well positioned to head north to 9. Ran out the spur I was on and spotted the trail. Turned and hit the right spur and was back in action. The plan worked;-) I lost a few minutes in map checking and then the re-route, but didn't lose a whole lot.

Felt good about the run - have to see the splits when they get posted, was unable to get them at the event (and that's ok;-) Think the 13 point team did reasonably well, Happy to have teamed with Dayle, Rick, and Laurie;-)
