Practice at Clinton. I drew a series of controls where I had to leave the trail at a certain location, and follow a straight line to the control. I often have difficulty heading in the correct direction when I leave trails. I did pretty well on this exercise. I had difficulty with 6 because I always get confused at this trail and stream crossing. Plus I didn't want to go through the nasty vegetation near the stream. But I should have been more conscious of the contours.
I did not go all the way to 7 either. But that was because I saw a beautiful great blue heron in the water right there, and I didn't want to scare it away.

Mike and I drove to Clyde MO (about 2 hours) to visit my aunt, who is a nun. Very interesting to visit a group of elderly nuns. My aunt is getting frail, but her mind is still sharp. She easily beat us in a game of Scrabble.
We stopped at Smithville on the way back. It was nice to run in an area I don't know well, but my mind and body were not into it today. Ran an old Green course backward, since it was more fun to be in the woods rather than the fields.

First 5k test run of the season. Nice that I had a tailwind to push me up the hill. Also nice that I'm 2 min faster than this time last year. A good position to start my annual 5k training.
jog/walk warm up/down 20:00 
aerobics 20:00 
My "Map Monday" posting on the OK page is not generating the conversation I had hoped. Anyone on AP wanna guess where Mike and I were born (which maps)? Check out the March 20th posting at facebook.com/OrienteerKansas/
