Orienteering race (Fair Hill Green) 55:03  *** 4.2 km (13:06 / km)
Okay, it is later...it was a goofy morning - at least that is what I told Sandy I felt like on the way to the event.
I was so distracted before and at the start - changed shoes because the insoles I wanted to use made my heel slip. Then put insoles into the wrong feet . Ran partway to start without my bib - didn't want to be one of those people without my bib - grumble, grumble. Then got to start only to discover that the check wasn't working. Decide after putting my dibber into the clear, the check, another clear, another check - that I would just start. Well, the start wouldn't work then. So, I run those back to the download. We figure out that the check was really a clear. Problem resolved and back to the start.
Get my map and start. Start is close to the edge of the map and confuses me. Sort that out and head into the woods. Visit all 5 other controls in the area before sorting myself out and finding mine. Goofy, for sure.
Fairly clean run after #1. Breathing was a struggle throughout - residual of the hard effort from the day before.
Very enjoyable day.
