Orienteering race (Corn Maze Champs) 35:06  ***
29c shoes: 212 X-Talon 2012
Total time for Classic, Sprint & Relay Leg 2 combined. Distance - who knows, its a corn maze so its well beyod a straight line value and rather meaningless anyhow.
Didn't realize until too late that my R contact never made it into my eye, which explains why things were fuzzier than usual...
Lot of route choice errors in classic, mostly from losing track of which control I was supposed to be heading for and wandering off toward a different one - its damn tough to concentrate on multiple levels when decision are coming at you so fast - opportunities to run hard without thinking lasted all of 12-15s and that was just on a couple long non-intersecting paths.
Sprint was better, good speed but some hesitation partway through choosing best routes. Sprints are no place for hesitation errors.
Relay was a blast, I was first out in the 2nd leg mass start by design, slow into maze reading course and realized first 5 controls in trickier NW section so elected to jockstuff - followed Giacamo & Ian early, then in with Ben for a bit. Switched to nav mode after 5 and had a solid long leg to 6 only to misread map and get totally trapped on 7. I could see flag, but fumbled figuring how the hell to get to it. Then a train with JJ and others heading for the exit and kicked
it to overdrive leaving maze and finishing.
Then off to the banquet @ Bubs. Excellent time all around...
