Orienteering race 1:10:06 [3] 6.7 km (10:28 / km) +360m 8:15 / km

QOC local event at Patapsco Glen Artney.

I did the Red course and ran quite tentatively, especially on the downhills. My back is in a state of "tolerable, but unpleasant". I am not sure whether to push for further treatment or hope that it will get better by itself. My doctor seems to think this is not a case of a burst or bulging disk, but rather just some inflammation that will resolve by itself. But it's been a month now. Ugh.

The orienteering itself went ok. This is not QOC's nicest area, but Ted Good did a good job of accurately mapping the green, so you could at least try to minimize the damage. Still, I came back nearly as bloody as from the cactus wars of last week. I won the red course, but was consistently slower than Joe and Sam, and a little slower than Wyatt, on the common legs between Red and Blue.

Running 15:00 [2]

Running to the start of the Cat Rock Score-O.

Orienteering 55:00 [3]

Score-O at Cat Rock. We had to get to the airport right after orienteering, so I had a pretty tight deadline to get all the controls. I managed, but it was nice to have the extra pressure to keep me moving. This is a visually spectacular area, nestled on the other side of a saddle between two massive rocks. Lots of cactus, as usual, and the orienteering consisted as much of navigating, as of trying to avoid being speared by a cactus. I had four stops to remove jumping cholla spikes from my feet, but all of these were successful.

The orienteering went fairly well, especially in the beginning, but then I lost a couple of minutes in the circle over the last few controls. Tricky and challenging terrain, but I wouldn't want this to be my regular home terrain. Too spiky.

Orienteering 14:33 [2]

Sprint training at University of Arizona. The first part was a corridor. I did this with Alli while grandparents took Inara.

Orienteering 30:28 [2]

Sprint course. Alli and I ran together, splitting up to test route choices. It was very fun. A nice course designed by Cristina.

Orienteering 1:00:00 [1]

A walking Score-O in Bisbee, AZ with Will and Alli. Really fun time.

Orienteering 38:00 [3]

Cholla Chaser at Catalina State Park. I got a handicap of having to find six bonus controls, compared to Will's seven. This was enough to let me get the win. I had a lot of fun orienteering and felt surprisingly strong physically, especially for the first half of the course.
