Orienteering race 3:11:14 intensity: (44:23 @1) + (56:01 @2) + (1:12:31 @3) + (18:19 @4) **** 9.68 mi (19:45 / mi) +2246ft 16:12 / mi
ahr:149 max:177 spiked:8/15c shoes: Salomon Speedcross 3

This was an absolutely horrible race, starting on the first control. The start was at a 3-way intersection. I didn't orient my map, took a quick look, and said, "I don't want to go right," so I took the trail to the left. Big mistake! The trail that I rejected on the map was the walk up to the start. The trail to the right in the terrain is the one I wanted. The trail to the left is the one that I took. And what was worse is that the features on the wrong trail lined up with the features I was looking for (at least, they lined up in my head). When I missed the control, I assumed I had made a parallel error, and adjusted accordingly. When that also failed to find the control, I was completely lost! By the time I finally figured out where I was and got to the first control, I had been on the course for 35:41 already (almost 32 minutes of lost time), and almost 1.8 miles. Once I found myself, I stayed found, but I had a strong tendency to veer too far right all day long, causing more significant time losses along the way.

The only saving grace for the race was that I didn't finish DFL. One person even had more time lost than I did

Orienteering race 26:44 intensity: (1:35 @3) + (21:12 @4) + (3:57 @5) *** 2.42 mi (11:03 / mi) +337ft 9:46 / mi
ahr:174 max:186 spiked:22/23c shoes: La Sportiva C-Lite 2.0

I navigated cleanly, but lost some time on 10. It was behind a house, and I hesitated as I approached, because it didn't feel right (it felt like it should be off limits as a private residence). I had good route selection, and didn't fall for any of the "gotchya" routes.

NOTE: I started my watch late.

Well, my cross country skiing goal for the year has been a miserable failure. Try again next year.
