Orienteering race 48:15 [5] 5.65 km (8:32 / km) +185m 7:20 / km
shoes: VJ Sports Bold

NAOC Middle

301 controls

2: Identified ridges as the easiest route with the least physical work.
3: Not steady on my direction but I hit the open by the road and things got easy. Entered too early.
6: I was actually going to take a more direct route but went too far left and hit the road. Realized that was a good thing.
8: Bad compass but realized immediately and decided to continue and hit the two hilltops.
10: Didn't make a good plan and ran too quickly at the beginning on a bad compass, should have put more effort towards a good compass. When you see my route go red, I'm not actually that far off but I thought I was, so I aim to hit 13 and try from there. Stop short, although I should have realized that I should keep running until I'm going uphill again. Lost a bit of time there, poor.
11: Went down the wrong spur, couldn't figure it out at the time so went back and tried again down the green spur.
12: Hesitation off of two awful controls.
13: Again, hesitation, but I think this time it was warranted. It helped me fix my direction.
14: Parallel error with the clearings.
15: Good grief does it ever end, just run to the ridge. Even better, run straight, drop down the reentrant, and run along the side of the hill.
16: Ran up the hill only to learn it was at the bottom of it.

Overall a pretty poor race in the second half that reminded me to reduce speed to allow for clean running, like I did in the beginning.
