Orienteering 19:15 [4] 4.0 km (4:49 / km)

NAOC Sprint - Was excited for this as I'd been doing quite well with my technical sprinting at SART. Was tired from the long though and didn't quite have my full speed. Also the course was disappointingly easy. But then I also made several mistakes so what's up with that?
Not stoked on this performance but oh well.

Orienteering 14:58 [4] 2.7 km (5:33 / km)

NAOC Sprint Relay. Made a minute mistake here :(. Ran the whole race by myself. Disappointed in my sprinting again super fun though!

Orienteering 2:27:32 [3] 13.7 km (10:46 / km)

NAOC Long. All the long. Made a couple bobbles on 1&2 as i went out too hard. but got into it and was solid till 9. Chose poorly on the long leg the blew 12, started to die on the way to 13 and was full on walking on the way to 15. I've never been too tired to run in a race before. I was way way too tired. I couldn't think straight by the end and was hobbling along like an old man.

Very disappointing and embarrassing. I've been doing well in the longs lately and thought I was in good enough shape to handle it. Perhaps I didn't taper correctly. Oh well, I didn't want to be a long guy anyway :p

The TG effect strikes again. Two years from now we'll have to do it differently.

Orienteering 35:41 [4] 5.5 km (6:29 / km)

NAOC Middle. As always fast and steady wins the race but I suppose sometimes slow and steady is good enough for second :D. My first forest NAOC medal and first as an adult (I got bronze in the sprint in 2008). Needless to say I'm pretty happy.

This race still could have been cleaner, I bobbled in the circle a fair bit. And faster, I only came in the top 3 on 3 legs.

I doubt it would have changed the result but I'm still a bit disappointed by the TG effect. Wish they'd started him in a fair for everyone spot.
