Orienteering race (Long Green Y) 2:47:20 [3] 5.52 mi (30:19 / mi) +863ft 26:24 / mi
slept:8.0 shoes: Salomon Speedcross (2014)

This was just pretty much awful -- I haven't gotten so totally lost or wandered so much in years. :-\

On top of that, my slow pace is magnified over such a long course.

#1. OK.

#2. I overshot the trail I had intended to take, and therefore I deviated way off the straight line.

#3. OK.

#4. Ridiculous, demoralizing wandering.

#5-6-7. Sloppy.

#8. Since I'm not used to this type of map or terrain, it never would have occurred to me to take one of the trails so far to the right or left, like everyone else seemed to do. I was never fully confident of where I was along the way, so I went very slowly, trying to match up features. Ugh.

#9. TOTALLY lost; bailed back to the trail to try again.

#10-11-12. OK.

Sigh... At least I had a leftover lobster roll waiting for me when I got back to the cabin, along with a serendipitous beer in the fridge.

Orienteering race (Middle Green Y) 59:18 [3] 2.68 mi (22:08 / mi) +240ft 20:24 / mi
slept:8.0 shoes: Salomon Speedcross (2014)

I was having trouble interpreting the contours on the way to #2, and therefore I proceeded very tentatively. Whew -- found it without any wandering.

Bobbled #3, but the rest was OK. I used trails as much as possible, for easier footing. I was a little bit confused getting from #14 to #15.

Was very happy to finish 4th of 8, but would love to someday finish closer to the F50+ pack (Kris, Clare, Mary, Barb).

Had a nice dinner with Kris.

Cycling hills 1:01:23 [3] 9.28 mi (6:37 / mi) +551ft 6:16 / mi
shoes: Safire


One lap around the arboretum to warm up.

Six laps on the Tyler Ave hill loop. I was hoping to get the same total elevation gain as a loop at the MAC, but it loos like I was 100 feet short.

One lap around the arboretum to cool down.

Not feeling sick anymore -- yay.
