Orienteering race 1:25:26  *** 6.06 mi (14:06 / mi) +420m 11:36 / mi
Bog Slog 2014. Managed second once again; removing the 18-19 split, ~3:00 behind Eric, 45s ahead of Jourdan, a handful in front of Peteris. I didn't have a particularly good run, although the first half of the course went fairly okay notwithstanding 1:30 lost at 6 and 30s at 9.
I then bungled 14 quite efficiently, setting off from 13 about 75 degrees right of intended direction for no reason at all, continuing merrily on for ~200 meters. Still can't fathom what I was thinking - did I even look at the map? This was the least happy I have been with my orienteering self in a long while. Called him all sorts of dirty names. Got quite creative, actually.
So that was almost four minutes lost, then another two at 17 after being accosted by a weirdly behaving trail. 19 was misplaced by ~100m, the fact of which I had been alerted to earlier on by Jourdan. Rolled my ankle pretty good on the way to 22, so had to ease off a bit for the last few. Feels okay now.
Overall, relatively happy with my fitness (11 top splits), but eight minutes of errors is just not good enough in any race.
