Good work today. I beat some people on the team for the first time today, which was a nice morale boost. I did not get completely lost at any point during the course, but a few of the splits could have been quicker. Being more intentional about rough compassing was very helpful.

I drifted quite a bit whenever I ran between trails, I should have been more careful with my direction. I veered way off course twice, so I need to keep better contact with the map. The last few points, which I assume were supposed to be easier, took me a very long time. The go control was a phenomenal sprint.

Orienteering at Round Pond with female LTC Campbell, CPTs Kohlberg, and friends. I ran the orange intermediate course 2.3k. I felt strong today but could have made a better route decision when I chose a longer route with roads instead of dead reckoning through the woods.

Orienteering by Round Pond with Female LTC Campbell and her friends. I had trouble identifying the "ride" that LTC Campbell suggested I take to get to a point, so I wandered a bit.

5 mile run with Dan. When I asked him questions he sped up to get away from me so I would run faster to keep up and that continued the whole way and led to excellent results for both of us. Good stretching and 8 minutes of ab work to close out.

Competition 59:54 [3]
shoes: Saloman SpeedCross 3

I was doing incredibly well for the first third of the race. I was confident, fast, and precise because I implemented new techniques after learning from the AAR of yesterday. I planned my routes in segments where I ran quickly between obvious attack points and didn't waste time looking at my map the entire time. Then I planned a route where I would hit a trail and make two lefts, but I misidentified some collecting features including cliff faces and the sound of flowing water. I ran in the wrong direction and took a while to figure out where I was, causing me to add over twenty minutes to my time. I was able to make it back to my last point and recover, after which I did very well again. I should have been much better than this.
