Orienteering race 1:28:05 [5] 5.8 km (15:11 / km) +190m 13:03 / km
shoes: IceBug Olx 4

Classic Champs Day 1, Green X. This is fine orienteering terrain, with open woods and plenty of features large and small. With the exception of one control I had a decent run, navigating well but traveling slower than necessary. The exception was #5, which was simply wretched. I had no clear plan leaving 4, just trying to avoid the green and stay to the west side of the marsh. When I hit a trail, I took it, figuring it for the one that ran down the west side of the green. But it wasn't, it was on the east side of the marsh. It didn't take long to figure out it was wrong, but it took forever to figure out where I was, because I never thought I was that far east. 15 minutes lost there, and it kind of sapped my enthusiasm.
