Orienteering (west point red middle) 36:52 [3] 4.0 km (9:13 / km) +170m 7:36 / km
shoes: O' Icebuds 2014

I had one of the last starts. I wasn't the fastest but overall was happy with my performance.
4 PM

Orienteering (west point sprint) 22:22 [5] 3.0 km (7:27 / km)
shoes: O' Icebuds 2014

I was tired but feeling positive about the sprint. I had a late start again. Joe Braughtingham started 2 minutes behind me. I messed up at control 5 and he caught me. We then ran hard together which really helped push me. I couldn't let up because Joe was right there. I took a better approach at one of the later controls and got back in front of him. Except for the one mistake I had a good run. I was totally beat at the finish.

Orienteering (red: troll cup) 1:05:44 [3] 6.2 km (10:36 / km)
(injured) shoes: O' Icebuds 2014

My calf is still sore but it didn't bother me to much.
I was doing ok until control 12. Then I mis-interpreted a large rock. I though it was mapped as a large rock but it wasn't. I went off in the wrong direction and wandered in the thick pine forest (white on the map) looking at all the 1m high rocks (none on the map), looking for 1.5 meter rock. Eventually, I ran out of rock and went back. I finally realized what must have happened then went right to the control.
Things were going ok until the last control where I apparently just spazzed. I hit the wrong trail and turned the wrong way. I realized what I had done and cut over to the correct trail, only it wasn't the correct trail. I ran do it a way until I realized everything was off. I finally went cross country and ended up confused past the finish near the road. Again I went the wrong way on the trail. Finally I took a bearing from the finish which I could see, figured out where I was and went to the control. I lost abut 5 minutes.
Basically a decent run turned bad. I went from 2nd to 3rd place as a result.
