Orienteering (COC Middle) 37:49 [5] 3.3 km (11:28 / km) +205m 8:45 / km

Really good but really bad race. Super technical!!!! Had an amazing first loop, nailing most of the controls and feeling mentally really really good. Unfortunately, as soon as I hit the spectator control I fell apart mentally. Lost my rhythm and made some very silly mistakes. Misjudged distance really bad and then completely lost focus on my compass work for the rest of the race, making a couple 45 degree errors.

Race over all mentally: 65% Physically: 90%

Orienteering race (COC Long) 1:12:08 [5] 8.2 km (8:48 / km)

Ok race. Had a couple good controls but over all I just couldn't get into the map and get any flow. Physically, I felt slow until my down the massive sand dune and then had a good surge of energy most of the way back. I think I should have done a longer warm up.

Orienteering race (COC Sprint) 17:15 [5] 2.3 km (7:30 / km)

Bad bad bad, but good race. Did the same thing again as JWOC Middle Final. Went from control 4 to 7 to 6 to 5 and then 6 to finish. Felt supper discouraged after my seriously stupid mistake so had a hard time running hard for the rest of the race. Besides my error from going to 4 to 7, my actual orienteering was clean and good.

Orienteering race (WCOC Sprint) 15:50 [5] 2.7 km (5:52 / km) +55m 5:19 / km
shoes: Adidas adiZero

Another pretty solid race. Made zero mistakes and felt pretty great physically. Lost about 20 seconds or so on one leg due to a poor rout choice. I need to practice expanding my rout choice ideas. I find I stick to much to the line.

Over all mentally: 95% Physically 95%
