Orienteering race 1:42:51  10.91 km (9:26 / km) +300m 8:17 / km
US Long champs. Didn't have a great start to the day. As I was walking to the start after the toilets, I dropped my compass and didn't realise. Thinking I was going to have to do an 8km course without a compass wasn't the most comforting thing before I started, anyway I found it. Walking up to the start, was up a hill, legs felt pr tired, which also wasn't great. Took control 1 way too fast....made a big mistake, had to relocate to the road. The first half of leg 2, I didn't hold my bearing, ended far to east, once I crossed the stream it was clean. Going to control 5, didn't manage to hold my bearing after the stream, ended up seeing my control 13, I then followed the edge of the hill to 5, wasn't the plan, but worked out pr well. On the way to 8, I was reading ahead while running along the path, tripped on a root or rock and face planted, my right shin just below my knee, hit a rock or root first, taking all the impact. I then walked to 8 as it was pr sore, small navigation error here, had gone about 15m too far west, but I was a little bit distracted by my leg. Had a clean run from then to the finish. I also hesitated on a couple of controls.
