orienteering race (Brown course) 55:19 [4] *** 4.1 km (13:30 / km) +150m 11:24 / km
spiked:9/10c shoes: O' Shoes

Boomed the first control! There was an obvious attack point, but I thought the feature was large enough that I didn't need it. Got the hang of it during the rest of the course.

Goals for tomorrow:
1. Stay in very close contact on the way to the first control
2. Instead of immediately simplifying out the ditch systems, look for distinct features to use like gully junctions.
3. Continue to read ahead on the first part of each control.

Running (mostly trails/soft surfaces) 9:00 [3] 0.95 mi (9:28 / mi)
shoes: O' Shoes

Part of this was with Izzy. We took my map from yesterday and memorized legs and then talked the other person through them without looking.
Also talked about strategy.

orienteering (Confusing-O) 9:17 [4] *** 1.4 km (6:38 / km) +23m 6:08 / km
spiked:9/11c shoes: O' Shoes

Ran this head to head with Izzy. Good practice! It was really really hard to find the next control on the map sometimes. We both stopped too soon at 8 when it was on a farther building, and then I got stuck in some green on my way to 11 and ended up too low. But overall, I did a good job reading ahead and staying in contact under pressure.

orienteering (Spri t) 22:44 [3] *** 2.5 km (9:06 / km) +45m 8:21 / km
spiked:17/18c shoes: O' Shoes

Jogged the sprint. Izzy caught me on the second control bc I hesitated, but I dropped her again at the end by focusing on clean exits. I also hesitated a few seconds on 7.

running drills 4:28 [3] 0.15 mi (29:57 / mi)
shoes: New Mizuno wave riders

Abbreviated drills with Izzy. We skipped lunges and the other hard stuff:)

running drills 7:00 [3] 0.23 mi (29:58 / mi)
shoes: New Mizuno wave riders

Drills after I got done with the model.

Orienteering (walking) 7:41 [3] *** 0.85 km (9:02 / km)
spiked:6/6c shoes: New Mizuno wave riders

Model event. What I noticed about the map:
1. It was easy for me to read the steep-sided gullies as index contours and be very confused. On control 5, I didn't realize I had such a great catching feature!
2. There's some flat, featureless terrain with point features in it. A good opportunity for some tricky controls tomorrow!
3. Rootstocks: very visible from far away. They can be tall and filled with bright orange soil.
4. A green O is a deciduous tree, and a green X is a pine tree. Good to know for those featureless flat areas and hillsides.
5. Downed treetops are really distinct and good to avoid. The oblong shape goes roughly in the same direction as the tree trunk.

orienteering 7:30 [3] *** 0.85 km (8:49 / km)
spiked:4/5c shoes: New Mizuno wave riders

Ran the last 5 controls of the model event. Focused on reading the clues and tried to visualize myself as a moving point on the map. The first was easier than the second. My one mistake was on 7, where I aimed left and hit it dead on. I hesitated maybe 5 seconds. I did do a good job with exit direction and reading ahead. Can't wait for tomorrow!
