Running (Warm Up) 10:00 [2]

Jogging around Sebago before the sprint qualification with map. A nice day for orienteering.

Orienteering (Sprint Qualification) 21:51 [4]

I had an alright run, with some errors in the green and also in a detailed boulder field. Still need to work on having good plans as well as planning ahead. My legs were a bit tired from a large volume of training earlier in the week. Didn't look good for the upcoming highlander.

Orienteering (Sprint Final) 23:38 [4]

Felt good going out, and was cruising through the terrain, I had a strong run and tried to slow down in the terrain transition but apparently didn't make the adjustment and had a couple of stupid errors involved in the lack of planning and the inability to follow my control taking plan. Cost me first by twenty seconds. I felt like I could have run a couple of minutes faster if I would have made the transition better. I believe that this showed a major aspect of my orienteering that needs improvement. I have made mistakes in speed transitions before, and I feel like I can improve greatly in my execution of the transition. Will definetly work on the transition in the coming months. Begining to wonder if I should have gone to school out here in the first place. I guess that is nothing to think about now, I can always work to get around going to school in Montana, i.e. exchanges galore!

I have been quite excited about the improvement in my orienteering abilities, even in the short time that I have spent in the East. I will continue to train and learn as much as possible.

Orienteering (Control Pick up) 30:00 [2]

Slow walk/ jog control pick up/ map walk. Looked/ analyzed the legs during the sprint final. There were some portions of the map that I felt could be improved, but overall had a nice walk in the woods.
