I had 1 mistake & only 1 mistake today. I passed by the control at end of spectator lawn without punching it! Even saw the control ahead of me, looked at map to check, and for some reason I surmized that it wasnt on my course...which for a picosecond or two seemed strange to me, but then on I went bolting past it. Hugely deflated after getting the printout. Words can't describe the internal outrage. Would have been my highest scoring event the whole week and it was my 1st perfect national sprint navigation-wise, but I blew it. I think its been years since I MP'd on a course as that was a problem for me when I first started the sport. That all said I obvioisly need to work on building my speed back up too as my normal sprint times were in the 5 to 7 min/km range back in the ohio summer fast-o days on comparable courses circa 2009-2013 and today was at 8/km. On the positive side I had a 100% clean course, I would have given anything to run 8/km just a few months back, let alone orienteer at a NAOC, and it was a very fun course on a nice campus on a beautiful day and it counted for military points credit, so I wont be complaining.
