orienteering race 57:08  6.4 km (8:56 / km)
GreenY course at FLO event. Good race but got sloppy leaving two controls. One was minor, hitting a trail further south than I intended so I took the trail route to the spectator control instead of going straight. But the other could have been disastrous. I crossed a trail, checked for the bend which I could see and continued on. And hit another trail which I was definitely not expecting. Totally flummoxed I slowed down and realized I had been heading at right angles to my intended direction and the trail went the way I wanted to be going. So I started running down the trail. I had been pretty much just going straight to every control and had never even noticed that this trail was there since it wasn't the most direct route and the trails in general didn't give you any better running than through the woods. I figured out what I had done pretty quickly though and the trail was actually pretty good footing and I knew where I was when I left the trail and went right into the control. So a small time loss but not too bad and pretty much nailed everything else. Woods were a bit thicker and my legs were a bit more tired so harder to run.
