Pretty good today. Actually felt worse this morning at the start than I did yesterday (very congested and warm) but felt better as the course went on, perhaps after my vitamin-I kicked in. Not coincidentally, that's about when we started coming back down after the climb in the beginning. I was definitely sluggish, but not too many mistakes. Silly boom on #1 (ran by it without seeing it) and totally "spiked" 10 (I was on my way to 9...).
I did manage to do a much better job of looking ahead and checking things off, though that's probably a never-ending learning area. Did not, however, pay attention to distance, with the exception of one leg (and that wasn't very successful).
Last weekend I orienteered so sloppily that I jokingly wondered why I bothered to do any physical training. Today, though, I definitely could have been moving faster for much of the course without sacrificing accuracy. That's good motivation. On the other hand, I constantly felt like I was NOT smooth. I want to be smooth! (Practice, practice, practice...)
