Orienteering race 1:31:45 [5]

Another typical average classical race for me: Started with a broken compass (I should have known..), which cost me around 4 minutes at the first control and took a lot of confidence. Other than #8 no real mistakes anymore, even though 2 controls didn't match with what the map showed, but then I broke down on the last 4 controls. I should have eaten more before the race...
Final thought to the whole weekend: Races and results to forget, the prettiest girl in US orienteering to remember. If only I'd had the chance to talk to her...

Orienteering race 43:34 [5]

Not my terrain, not my weather, and I don't like starting last especially in this weather (there is not even a single advantage in going last...). Considering this I did alright. Typical mistake to control 2: came out of the deep gully, didn't consult my compass and ran off in the wrong direction: at least 1:30. 12-13 was mapped totally weird, but I didn't make too much of a mistake. Worst ever: missed the finish! But how was I to know that these two controls in the mud were supposed to mark the finish? That cost me approximately 10 seconds, so I'd still be in the same rank...

Orienteering race 16:58 [5]

Felt terrible, just couldn't run. It might have been the injury of the last few weeks or just the almost 9 hours traveling to the meet. I couldn't handle the map either, didn't expect these deep gullies which I don't like at all. I probably should have got this map in advance instead of East Fork Park which didn't help at all.
