ESOA champs @ Riccarton, 5th on blue course. Felt a little miles-tired but otherwise generally good and had hoped to be a bit faster.
Definitely some rustiness in my orienteering, over 2 mins of clear error in addition to scrappiness (15" at 1; 25" at 9 (forgot right past 15 was blocked-ish); 45" at 10 (a bridge too far); 45" at 21, ran past) but looking at HR its notable my effort dropped off for the middle third of the race, HR was ave. 148 up to 9 (where I was 2nd), which is probably about right; then dropped to ave. 141 from when I made a mistake until I picked effort up again when a proper orienteer ran past me at about 15 making me feel I really should be a *bit* faster (145 to end). Ave. 144, versus ave. 156 in recent 10k.
Fun event though - some good challenging legs. Results
