Running warm up/down 15:00 
For both races, before and after.
Orienteering race (sprint) 18:23  **** 2.3 km (8:00 / km) +50m 7:13 / km
Fisbones sprint at Rockwood Park in Saint John. Rainy race from start to finish. Good prep before and felt good at the start. Hesitant and slow up to 3. :20 bobble going to 4 second guessing myself. :20 at 7...same thing...slowing down and making sure. :20 at 8, came out at the clearing too far north and made my way back. 1:00-1:30 in errors/bobbles. Spiked most controls and finished well. Need to go faster on the easy legs and run-in....way behind on these.
Happy with my result....6th out of 15.....less than 4:00 behind Patrick and and :34 out of 3rd.
Orienteering race (middle) 1:12:37  *** 3.9 km (18:37 / km) +150m 15:37 / km
Middle @ Fishbones. Good start to one. Problems started at 2. Wasn't sure where i came off the trail at and couldn't pick out exactly where I was. Bailed to hydroline quickly and came from the north and got it. Slow but OK from to 4 and 5. 6 and 7 were disastorous. Didn't have a real attackpoint which hurt....wasted a lot of time being stubborn and wandering. Distracted by other competitors and controls....need to focus. Thought of bailing but decided to suck it up and get some practice. Likely 20:00 in errors at least. Some good and bad controls coming in. Tough footing and physically demanding all day. Visibility was poor...tough to see in spots. Need to do better at staying in good contact with the map. Totally different then what I am used too.....most of all.....FUN and challenging.
Realized I need to make sure to establish an AP, ignore others, watch compass/map more, and stay confident in what I am doing.
