Orienteering race (middle) 51:05  *** 4.9 mi (10:25 / mi)
Open woods. I was doing pretty well at the beginning and I looked ahead to the first long leg 7-8 and saw that I could go around on a ride and a trail. Coming out of 7, I was just following the red line and it was open all the way along the red line. I was thinking to myself "why would I take the ride, it is fast running all along the red-line. Only when I got near the control did I realize that I was following the line from 12 to 13 ( 7 and 12 where the same control). What made the error fatal was that these two legs were the long legs. Made another error later (on the 12-13 leg ! ) when I lost focus and didn't see the 13 flag.
