orienteering race 1:21:08 [4] *** 7.1 km (11:26 / km)
10c shoes: Jalas hi-top 2010

BGR meet at Wildcat Mound near Black River Falls WI. Fun meet in interesting terrain, although some recent new logging really fouled up one leg, with a lot of newly clear cut area covered with slash.

A little sloppy on a couple legs. Started off with a ninety degree error out of the start (duh) from which I quickly recovered but probably lost 30-60 seconds. Over ran 5 and lost a minute, went a spur too far right on 7 and lost another. Hesitancy on 3 (partly blame that on a new clear cut) and on 4. Straightish line on short seven to eight leg should probably have been executed a little faster too.

After the run, gave Peter Laraia a ride back to Madison, with a shortstop at a WalMart in Tomah to fix a leaky valve stem on a new tire.

First time in years that I have used EMIT punching. I found the lack of feedback (no flash or beep) disconcerting and probably held it in a second or two longer than I needed to at each control.

road running 34:28 [4] 4.26 mi (8:05 / mi)
shoes: Starter Excel

Boyd's Rd to Hwy 70 and back. 4 miles in 32:10 then last quarter at a slower pace. Miles 7:55, 8:02, 8:18, 7:55. Third mile time might be a bit long since the Garmin watch always seems to lose just a little distance whenever I do a 180 turn. It recorded 2.18 miles outbound but only 2.08 returning, so there could be a small loss at the turnaround early in mile 3. Paved road with a few gentle rolls.
In the past I had always counted this road as two miles each way based on car odometer. Nice to know that the GPS finds it just a hair longer.

Fairly brisk evening walk around the old airstrip. Thunder showers prevented running earlier in the day.

trail running 1:00:34 [3] 6.2 mi (9:46 / mi)

Deer count 103. Cooler weather brought more deer out to the old airstrip today, so this was the first time this year that I broke 100.
