Orienteering 1:50:00 [4] 10.25 km (10:44 / km)
shoes: INOV 8 Muclaw 330 -old

Ran Blue today - first time ever at an A meet. Proved to be challenging mentally. After problems early on it was hard to keep going, knowing that I was most likely going to get my butt kicked anyway, and then with mistakes... but this is something I'm working on. Not a stellar race. Even pace the whole way. I brought two gus, but only needed to take one. Trouble early on with 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6. Actually ran off the map on 5. 2 was disappointing, because I was so sure of where the control was that I was reading ahead and actually ran right by it. I ran into the saddle, and... no control. Saw Wyatt running by above me which prompted me to run up and realize that I ran right by it! I dropped a contour after going over the cliff when I shouldn't have. I see it now. I decided to take the trail to #7, only cutting the corner that sticks out. Very careful when I attacked through the green, but saw the large hill behind it and found it quite easily. Off on my compass and made a bad parallel error on 11. The end of the course was much better. Although I didn't have great speed, things were making sense most of the time. Good long distance training :)
