running warm up/down 8:00 [2]

agility warm up/down 20:00 [3]

Before pre-start and at last-minute warmup

running 6:00 [1] 1.1 km (5:27 / km)
shoes: Saucony Liberty

To last-minute w/u area and handoff zone

orienteering race 19:31 [5] ** 3.6 km (5:25 / km)
16c shoes: Saucony Liberty

Ridiculously easy sprint in the hottest part of the day. Despite how simple it was, I still managed to make one huge mistake and one less huge mistake. Going to 5, I got really excited about how things were going and then overshot the control, going off the map (RIP). A 1:43 mistake, completely lost any and all lead I had over China and New Zealand. Super frustrating. Next big error happened going to 14, made a 28 second mistake when I thought I went into an embargoed area... turns out it was just some people setting up for some sort of concert and I freaked out over the wrong color tape. Other than those two stupid moves and 8 seconds of hesitation going to 1, race went technically smoothly as it should have. If not for all that I would have run 17:12, which would have put us in 18th place. I also was absolutely dead by about 1.8km, and just could not run fast, I guess with the combination of racing at JWOC, the high heat, upset stomach, and a sub-optimal warmup (much too long between beginning and handoff).
Plan right now is to take the middle as a practice course for the long and save my energy for the sprint on Wednesday. Hopefully I feel better and more rested by then.

running warm up/down 9:30 [1] 1.0 mi (9:30 / mi)
shoes: Salomon ||v|| X 4

agility warm up/down 10:00 [3]

orienteering race 38:30 [3] *** 5.8 km (6:38 / km)
15c shoes: Salomon ||v|| X 4

First leg of the JWOC relay. Very solid navigationally, except for a few bobbles, but I was absolutely beat from the past week of racing and just could not keep with the lead pack. All in all though, this was the race I feel best about, even though my placing wasn't the greatest at the end of it. Wish this week could have gone a lot better, but it is what is, and I'm super glad to have been able to experience international racing for the first time. I've found that my desire to keep on training seriously for orienteering and to go on and compete (not just participate) at WOC has been rekindled, which is incredibly exciting (as well as frustrating, considering that the Army will limit what I'm able to do for the next 5+ years). Guess we'll have to see where my career takes me, and hope that things work out for the best.

For now, though, on to WUOC!

orienteering race 1:08:14 [4] **** 3.1 km (22:01 / km)
12c shoes: Salomon ||v|| X 4

Well. That was a shitshow. Two huge mistakes on 4 and 7 that added up to 37 min of error. Rest of the controls were ehh with some small bobbles, but those two damn controls killed me. Pretty freaking pissed off about this. Wasn't in the right mindset that I'd been in during the quali, and seriously overestimated my ability to navigate in the terrain. Gonna analyze more later when I'm not so angry at myself; for now I gotta focus on running fast and clean in the relay tomorrow.
3 PM

running 19:32 [3] 2.5 mi (7:49 / mi)
shoes: Saucony Liberty

Getting angry energy out.
9 PM

Note

So it turns out that I probably had only around 33 minutes of error total (4 and 7 actually only contributed 18:58, according to Winsplits), I could have run around 35:14, which equates to 22nd place in the B final. Main issues: underestimating the course, not being careful enough in the green, losing map contact in the green due to the previous error, et cetera. Also noticed that I was too relaxed, and not in "racing" mode, if that makes any sense. Definitely think that contributed to messing up so badly.

Middle quail—made the B final by the skin of my teeth. Mostly clean with some dumb bobbles here and there, idk how much error, was too tired to calculate it. Excited to bring my A game and use what I learned today to run even better tomorrow, hopefully!
