Orienteering race 56:22 [4] *** 5.7 km (9:53 / km) +574ft 8:34 / km
spiked:15/23c shoes: Inov-8 Mudclaw Red

Middle Distance regional O race.

A number of factors combined to result in my usual slowness. First I forgot my own O kit (compass, SI unit, control description holder) and had to borrow them all. As a result I had an unfamiliar compass that I never really got used to in this shortish race. Also, due to the compass I was way off on my bearing to #2 ending up at #3 first. Then when I went back to 3 I couldn't find it. A few more similar mistakes and very quickly the motivation to push and run fast totally left me. Near the end Lea Müller passed me like I was standing still... :-D
