Orienteering (Bumble - Red - 4 windows) 2:47:03 [3] *** 14.0 km (11:56 / km) +204m 11:07 / km

why did I do red and actually finish it-

Ok so I did fairly well overall. I did my four windows essentially in order from hardest to easiest, and I got all of the woods running done in the first half. Plus, my overall route choices were good. And I tried to run and was able to for a lot (I'd even say it was 50/50 with running and walking, which is rare for me). With the exception of getting lost and making about a 15-20 minute error on H and a tiny bit of confusion costing me a minute or two on F, I ran pretty clean. Oh and going to N I got out on the wrong trail and didn't realize for a few seconds, but I caught it and fixed it pretty quickly, so it maybe cost me 30 seconds.

My order was:
J -> I -> G -> H -> F
K -> M -> L -> O -> N
-long running bit I absolutely hated but i had to go through-
V -> W -> X -> Y -> U
T -> R -> P -> Q -> S

Isn't it interesting how I can go from less than 100 steps per day to cranking out a 14km orienteering course under 3 hours.

Biking (Beach Dr) 1:09:48 [3] 17.6 km (3:58 / km) +108m 3:51 / km

I had to change up my route because of the snow, but I was glad I got to go biking. Unfortunately I had to bike on the busier part of Beach Dr, since the pedestrian-only part wasn't cleared out. It was still nice to go biking again.

welp I'm 17 now-

Anyways, I wanted to mention that I know I've been slacking a lot on my running more than usual recently. I've just been struggling with my mental health for a while now, and I know I probably still will for a while. But at the same time I really want to get back into running, and I want to try to work on everything. I know that as an athlete I should be better at this stuff, and this year I really want to work on just getting better both at orienteering and on being an athlete.

Orienteering (Seneca Creek - snowy) 1:26:37 [3] 6.0 km (14:26 / km) +122m 13:06 / km
ahr:85 max:106

The snow was nice - everything else kinda sucked, I just genuinely didn't feel like running much, or orienteering for that matter. I think I did a total of like 4 or 5 controls before I just went back, I don't know what was up. I couldn't get myself into the orienteering mindset, and I couldn't focus on the map at all so yeah.
3 PM

Walk 1:25:00 [2] 6.5 km (13:05 / km)

My mom had the keys and when I got to the car she was on the other side of the map so I was walking to keep warm

can't say I really stayed warm, but at least the trunk of the car was unlocked so I could reach in to get my jacket and change into a dry top, but I still kind of froze because my hair was wet and my feet were soaked (also my o-pants don't realy hold much heat)

also the distance is an estimate from the map, I forgot to track this because I didn't realize I was gonna walk that much
