Orienteering race 1:09:01 [3] *** 3.7 km (18:39 / km) +65m 17:09 / km

NAOC Middle Distance (Course 7b)

Got off to a horrible start by taking the wrong trail from the start triangle. Figured out after about 250-300m and doubled back more than I should have before attacking properly and successfully. This set off a series of errors in the next three legs with me accumulating nine minutes of errors in the first four legs. After a clean #5, I botched #6 very badly (eight minute error) by crossing the stream bed then turning right instead of left and then flailing.

The rest of the race was fine, with small bobbles at 12 (left, but caught myself) and 13 (fine, but had to cross yucky stuff) and a questionable route choice to 15 and 16 (around both times instead of straight).

Not a great run, but I came in 29th out of 59 so achieved my goal of top half!
