Orienteering race 31:16  *** 3.03 km (10:19 / km)
Quite an inauspicious start to the 1000 Day. I can only attribute it to not being ready to race. It was like one of those O nightmares where you're not ready, but you have to go out soon. I was not focused from the beginning and it just got worse. I bobbled 2, 3 and 4; did okay on 5 - 8; and totally blew 9, a pit. I had to go out to the big field south of 9, see the 10th control and backtrack from there. I'll hope for a better day tomorrow.
