Orienteering 1:23:36  8.1 km (10:19 / km) +340m 8:32 / km
Woo! A good enough race to make the team! Super-duper psyched! =)
It started pretty miserably, I took the through-the-gap in the green route choice to 1, which I think was probably a pretty good one, but I wasn't patient and didn't wait to get to the obvious cliffs which marked when you should turn and head south to the control. I got scared I went too far (because I was slow up the hill? or not into the map scale yet? or just nervous?) and turned south probably 100-150m too early... Then was very puzzled when nothing added up... was finally putting things together for really when Cristina came by (started 6 min back). Not a good start!
But things went pretty well from there on, some I was straight on, some slightly bobbly, but really not bad. Saw no one else out there, which is a good sign, since I started first...
The two long legs were perhaps not-optimal. 14->15 I snaked around both green bits, probably quicker to not bother going around and stay straighter. 15->16 I didn't even see the trail+road route, and I think I was running fast enough still that that would have been faster. Especially as going up to the top involved some crawling = slow!
I think it's been good for me to see how my orienteering accuracy improves when I'm not running quite as fast as normal. Really need to balance the navigating and running sides of things, even when I get my full running speed back!
