NAOC sprint

Seconds would have really mattered in this run. Still satisfied with result and ended up in 6th in M-20 in a field that i know is much faster than. Trying to change that and hopefully start more speed training heading into the winter sessions of training.

Overall view of the weekend is that I know that I am improving but still a long road ahead...

NAOC relay

Very interesting relay to say the least. With the results ending in US and CAN tied in the over future cup competition. Started strong with Ethan and Alex but on the second control both me and Alex made a huge mistake for it being a sprint/relay. Both led each other 150M down hill of where the control was. It felt fine for me to make the mistake in relay situation as my competitor make the same mistake and from the second control on I led Alex from there. Even though I did beat him the strong canadian was right behind me in the finish chute. Felt good after being beat by him all weekend. Shows he has trained more.

NAOC long

Final starting to enjoy longs and understanding how to be successful on them. Need to do more long activity to improve my endurance since towards the end I got too tired and started making mistakes and tripping over myself. Following route choices was good but don't know if they were the best routes. I do know that they were pretty close to the line. Overall i could say navigationally i was fine and physically I need to improve in order to be ready for the ultra long champs coming up.

orienteering 40:12 [3] 4.3 km (9:21 / km) +160m 7:53 / km

NAOC middle

Really felt my training and experience's in Europe help me a lot in this race. Felt fast and in control almost all the time. Even though i made errors they became minor due to me paying more attention to the map and correcting them fast. Next best thing is to not have those errors but today it seemed like everyone had the same problems.

Oh also joined the 90 point club by getting a rank of 96 on this one. #ballin
