Orienteering race (Club Meet) 35:34 [4] *** 7.73 km (4:36 / km) +135m 4:14 / km
ahr:175 max:189 spiked:20/21c shoes: Asics Gel-Trail Attack 3

COO Event - Ohio State University Campus, Columbus, Ohio.
Long Course: 6.4km, 20c, ?m (1:7500)
Course Setter: Alexander Preobrazhensky
~85F, clear, sunny, some breeze.

Essentially a very long sprint around the campus of OSU, except there were a few things not up to sprint standard. Map was 1:7500, though I didn't know because none was listed, nor were there contours and N-lines. I dealt with those just fine. It was the lack of specificity in the control descriptions and flag placements that had me frustrated throughout the race. #2, 7, 8, 11, and 18 weren't quite where I expected them. Lost significant time at #8 (saw the flag hanging in a tree just as I was giving up) and #13. #18 was more of a map reading error on my part, but a better description would've helped. I guess I've just been spoiled by the higher quality A-meet setups the last few weeks.

Overall, this was still a fun course. Would love to see a real sprint map in the future. I enjoyed running around the campus. Because it was such a nice warm day, lots of students were out playing or just laying about. So there were plenty of distractions along the way :) Pretty happy with my concentration, planning ahead, etc. I pushed the pace to test the knee on pavement running, and it held up just fine!

Orienteering (Club Meet) 16:46 [2] ** 3.05 km (5:30 / km) +35m 5:12 / km
ahr:162 max:173 spiked:11/11c shoes: Asics Gel-Trail Attack 3

COO Event - Ohio State University Campus, Columbus, Ohio.
Short Course: 3.0km, 11c, ?m (1:7500)
Course Setter: Alexander Preobrazhensky
~85F, clear, sunny, some breeze.

Jogged the short course (same as #1-11 of Long), mostly on memory. Had to take a peek a couple times. Some slight variations on routes, but still picked a bad one to #11 - fail to take the bridge to save unnecessary climb.

Running warm up/down (Mixed Road/Grass) 30:00 [2] 3.0 mi (10:00 / mi) +140m 8:44 / mi
ahr:146 max:167 shoes: Asics Gel-Trail Attack 3

Walked/jogged through campus en-route to the ice-cream place to hang out with F, K, & Buddy the Greater Swiss Mountain dog. Turned out to be much farther away than expected, so I got a ride back 2/3 of the way back afterwards.
