Orienteering race 1:04:58 [4] 7.0 km (9:17 / km)
shoes: Icebug Gryllo

QOC Super Stumble Bumble. I must be truly out of it, because I never heard of a Bumble. Anyway, the course was good, and the orienteering was fun. The map updates were good. I'd like to do some more running on it, but one problem area, where the 4th window was, was much more comprehensible than I remember. I skipped one window, I think it was the third one. I made 2 mistakes. I'm not a huge fan of mass start races, and I always have trouble remembering to navigate, not just run.

The first mistake shows just how oblivious I was, and It's pretty comical. I decided to take the controls A-B-C-D. On the way from A to B I got off course and ended up at C instead. Still thinking it was B, I punched it and headed off in the direction that C would have been if I had actually been at B. Needless to say, things didn't work out too well, and I bailed out to the trail. I came back, took a careful attack to C and spiked that control good. No clue that I'd been there before, no recognition at all.

The other mistake was just after entering the 2nd window, where there were 2 controls close together, E and F. I got the first one and forgot there was another one. Headed off to clear the rest of the window, and realized after not too long that I'd left it behind.
