Orienteering 1:21:00 [4] 6.4 km (12:39 / km) +340m 10:00 / km
shoes: Roclite 280-2015

Fountainhead training Red (Course 3). Cloudy and 80, with some humidity, o.k. conditions but not great. I made a mistake on 5, ran too far south, and it's not clear to me exactly where I went wrong. Coming up out of the larger creek the hillside seemed to be sloping the wrong way, and I assumed I was too far north, so that explains why I went too far south in correction, but I don't know what I could have been looking at that caused the problem in the first place. Anyway, at least 5 min lost there, relocated reasonably well. Other than that, I was just out of gas by about 8 controls in. Not moving very fast after that. A little disappointed in my time, only 15 min faster than last time and no fooling around with streamers. I can do better.

Someone was out hanging pink streamers alongside my yellow ones, but not all controls (maybe they did Course 1). I didn't need them today, because you could see the yellow pretty well in the overcast conditions.
