volleyball (practice) 1:50:00 [2]

Moving for nearly the whole practice since there were only eight people.
Lots of jumping and quick movements, ended up being good cardio.

orienteering race (green level) 52:43 [3] *** 2.75 mi (19:10 / mi) +80m 17:35 / mi
12c slept:8.0

A fair rap-up to a great winter season. I made a couple mistakes that I should not be making at this point, so I'll be paying extra attention to those things in my next courses. My usual strength of navigation and usual weakness of running kind of seemed to swap; I was running alright but mislocated three controls and made a very big route choice error. The navigation is where I lost so many minutes. Honestly the running probably was because I got stuck in some vegetation and had a chance to catch my breath.

Takeaways: A sloppy race but it did the job. I think that I have been taking for granted my navigation skills and haven't been practicing them as much as I need to. I need to drill the basics back into my brain and be more precise. And, as always, I need to (and will) train physically and bring up my speed and stamina. Also, some armchair orienteering couldn't hurt; I need to refine my techniques for precisely locating controls.

**Note that the distance is me manually going through my route on the map because I never take my phone with me on races to actually track the run.
