running warm up/down 28:00 [1] 4.42 km (6:20 / km) +5m 6:18 / km

orienteering race 14:10 [4] 3.53 km (4:01 / km) +13m 3:56 / km

Sprint went well for the most part. Only real mistakes were on two where I went up the stairs to the north and then 13 when I popped into the forest too far to the right of the control.
I just feel like I haven't gone fast enough or pushed hard enough in a sprint recently. Maybe that's just a natural loss of drive/Adrenalin for the race?
Anyway technically I could improve on knowing my route more precisely

running warm up/down 6:00 [1] 1.0 km (6:00 / km)

12 PM

running warm up/down 21:00 [1] 3.55 km (5:55 / km)

orienteering 15:59 [5] 3.39 km (4:43 / km) +38m 4:28 / km

Decent run, had three 15s mistakes.

First, going to 9 took a crappy route through the slash and later ran past the control. Then, control 11 I stopped around the circle after just taking a bearing through the forest and getting distracted pushing through the falled trees and crap. Then 15, I left my line after spotting an easier path through the forest and ended up stopping too early, eventually remembered that the path right behind the control would help judge position. Overall, just a bit too much running in the forest at times and needed to read the map a little more.

Since it was in the forest for a fair portion I felt I pushed harder in this race since I at least felt I had something to push against.

running warm up/down 9:09 [1] 1.59 km (5:45 / km)
