Orienteering race 51:17  3.5 km (14:39 / km)
West Point Middle Distance. Not a great race, especially the first half. Looking back on it, my main problem was that I kept mistaking one feature for another- for example, #2 I attacked off the wrong rocky hilltop. On #3 (definitely my worst control) there was a control on a dot knoll about 100m north of where the Green control was- I was so stubborn and convinced that I was at the right control that I must've gone around that area for 5min before I decided to drift south and then I saw it. Other stupid mistake was following the east side of a pond instead of the south side of the pond going to #5. I can't even explain this- I must've lost contact with the map. I don't know. Second half of the race was better... Overall just much more technical orienteering than I've done in a few months.

West Point Sprint... Argh this was even worse than the middle distance, a little painful to write about. I was overrunning the controls in the beginning, most notably on #5 (I lost contact with the map around here too, so that didn't help). Then I literally skipped #8, which I realized once I had gotten to #10, so I had to run back down the hill to #8, punch that, then repunch #9 and #10. Even the end wasn't good, I ran to the wrong building... so messy.
