Alex gave Juanma, Violeta, Vilppu, and myself a red course in Prospect Park. Pretty sweet little park. My compass kept acting funny for the first half of the course. Initially I assumed I was rushing too much and not taking good bearings, but on the way out of #10 I saw it do a 180, and then another 180. After that I stashed it in my pocket and continued on. I don't like orienteering without a compass, but something was strange about it last night. Really enjoyed getting back to forests like these.

Orienteering 2:40:00 [3] **** 26.58 km (6:01 / km) +510m 5:30 / km

The plan was to do a 20k corridor through Casa de Campo for my last day here, but after about 15k, I ran into Luis who was in the middle of the woods.

So what do you do when you run into one of your best friends who happens to be in your 40 meter-wide corridor at the same exact time you are in the middle of the woods on your last night in Madrid? Well, you say forget the corridor and go with him.

Surprisingly tired, a good way to enjoy the park despite the sketchy mapping in a few parts.

12 PM

Running 1:26:07 [3] 10.86 km (7:56 / km) +817m 5:46 / km

A run up El Yelmo with Richi. I was still tired and he's not in shape yet, so we went slow and took breaks. Chilly and very beautiful up top. Going to miss these mountains.

Vetting the orienteering part of the adventure race Escondite will be holding at the end of September in Altos de los Leones. Beautiful day out.

Orienteering 26:28 [3] ** 3.78 km (7:01 / km) +131m 5:58 / km

More vetting but this time on the 1:15,000 section. A group of cows were blocking the gate I wanted to go through. Had to find another gate.

Rough Translation of some good advice received in Spain.

TEN BASIC MENTAL ASPECTS OF ORIENTEERING
1. Your SELF-ESTEEM does not matter to others, only your results. Value your effort whenever you do things well and whatever the result may be.
2. If you make a MISTAKE of any type, it is not anyone else’s fault, only yours. Learn from them and apply what you have learned.
3. FOCUS ON THE TASK AT HAND, not on the result. If you improve these tasks, the results will come by themselves.
4. The relationship between training and results is not always fair. GET USED TO IT.
5. DO NOT UNDERESTIMATE anyone. Everyone can beat you.
6. If you always do the same thing, you will make the same mistakes. DO NOT STOP LEARNING, EVEN WHEN YOU WIN.
7. Always do your own orienteering in races. DO NOT THINK ABOUT OTHERS.
8. You are the one who best knows how to do your best. SELF-CONFIDENCE.
9. You must always THINK POSITIVELY.
10. Have fun training and competing. MOTIVATION is fundamental.
