Orienteering race (Green X) 1:28:06  *** 4.71 km (18:42 / km) +200m 15:26 / km
spiked:9/12c shoes: VJ Falcon - size 6
Lazy at the beginning, plus perhaps the start triangle was in the wrong place? I knew I was headed a little more SSE instead of ESE to #1, but hit ditches that I didn't expect to hit, and corrected from well to the west of my intended route. Sloppy to #2, having to relocate; and the same to #3. After that I settled down and, though not all my routes were optimal (even for me), I had no trouble finding the rest of the controls.
Oh, and those new shoes? Bad idea to wear them the first time at a race (where you can't go back and change them). :-) But you knew that. Two new blisters--ugh.
