Orienteering race 51:17  6.6 km (7:46 / km) +267m 6:28 / km
Latvian World Cup Middle Distance.
Started well enough. Took the track to the left on #1, and got quite pushed around by the green on the way to #2 but found the control cleanly. Caught the French girl who started before me.
Took the track on the left to #3 to avoid the green, but then allowed the French girl to push me off course on the way to #4 and went way too wide. I knew I was doing it, too, which was the worst part. Got caught by the girl who started after me.
Went around to the left of the hill on #5 to avoid the green, but then was too low and missed the control. Found a Ukranian girl coming back from the men's control.
Clean on #6 through #11, but then on #12 I decided to follow the pack down the wrong gully (again I knew I hadn't gone far enough, but I doubted myself). Relocated fairly quickly once the control didn't appear, and caught up with one of the Hong Kong girls.
Clean through the rest apart from a daft route choice to #15 where I wussed out and went all the way around a track instead of just straight down the slope. Managed to get #18 cleanly because I came at it from the track - seems like a lot of people lost time there.
Overall not a great run. Just drives home how I lack confidence and concentration.
