Flying Pig Blue Middle

My first middle. went so-so, no huge errors but lots of small/medium ones that stacked up.

1-8 went pretty well, slightly overshot 6 but quickly corrected. Was moving pretty fast and feeling good.

9 was my biggest error, had to re-attack 3 times. I think i was close every time, but i kept ending up on the N side of the thicket, and the flag was barely visible through it. Several other people were wandering the same area at the same time.

10-12 went well

13 I wasnt as deliberate as I needed to be in that no mans land. missed it and had no idea where i was, so i went back to 9 to reattack, and had trouble finding 9 again... Once I did find it I hit 13 well.

14-17 went well.

Last bigger error was 18, again I wasnt careful and missed S, and wandered a bit before stumbling on it.

19-20 good.

21 I hesitated at the right feature because I didnt go down it far enough, did a small circle looking for another option before committing.

22 - twisted my ankle and hobbled for a bit.

23-24 good

Went the wrong way around to the finish i think.

A fun race, very technical and a learning experience. I would look forward to middle in the future.

Orienteering race 1:30:01 [3] *** 6.89 mi (13:04 / mi) +114m 12:26 / mi

Flying Pig Night O Recreation Red

Wanted to save my legs a ltitle so did red instead of blue.

Race felt really clean, and I jogged almost the entire thing. No big mistakes.

1-4 good.

5 - failed to identify an uncrossable fence, that was slow going around.

6-7 good

8 - missed one of the fences so i way overshot. Probably my biggest error.

9 good

10 - so muddy! executed well though. saw Tom and Tim on their way out as i went in.

11 good
12 - passed tom and tim

13-14 good

15 - slowed down to a walk for this one. Thought I was cutting N from the point of the field, but I was farther east. Realized when I was going up the hill, but decided that was a fairly easy attack so i kept with it and hit it well..

16 - took slow until I saw the reflector from a ways out

17-19 good

20 - got pushed way east, but corrected from the well

21-22 good

23 - had trouble seeing so i did a small little loop

24-F good.

Really happy with this result. Proof that if I slow down on the hard stuff and hammer roads and trails I can minimize mistakes... Now its just the mental hurdle of executing that plan.
