Saturday Feb 22 #

12 PM

Orienteering race 2:07:00 [3] 4.54 mi (27:59 / mi)
shoes: Salomon Speedcross (2017-Turq)

Two-hour Score-O at Needle Vista.

It was hard to get motivated to get started in the rain...but I heard Sverre say he was only going out for an hour, and I thought that sounded like a good approach ("I can tough it out for an hour..."). I ended up staying out for the full two hours plus an extra ~seven minutes. :-P

I went clockwise and made a big, dumb error going up the wrong reentrant to #33 / OR.

Orienteering race 1:57:00 [3] 4.14 mi (28:16 / mi)
shoes: Salomon Speedcross (2017-Turq)

Two-hour Night-O at Needle Vista.

Counter-clockwise. I started & finished OK but wasted a bunch of time when I lost contact with the map on my way to #40...

Orienteering race 50:07 [3] 3.34 mi (15:00 / mi) +302ft 13:49 / mi
slept:6.0 shoes: Salomon Speedcross (2017-Turq)

Cholla Chaser at Catalina State Park.

Other than my bone-headed miss at the first trail junction on my way to E, this went well. (I powered up the hill to get ahead of some people, and I think I had brain failure as a result at that first trail junction...ugh.)

However, going down the super-steep hill to A -- and then climbing right back up again to B -- probably wasn't the smartest plan. E-F-B-A then trail back to the intermediate start control would have been better.

I lost a few minutes (and positions) on my way to #3, when I had to stop to yank out several cholla segments.

But, then I was able to gain a few positions by passing people on the run in from the GO control.



Run / Hike 16:00 [3] 0.84 mi (19:03 / mi)
shoes: Salomon Speedcross (2017-Turq)

Walked to the start.

Sunday Feb 16 #

Orienteering race 2:47:06 [3] 6.06 mi (27:34 / mi) +701ft 24:51 / mi
slept:6.0 shoes: Salomon Speedcross (2017-Turq)

Classic courses at Catalina State Park -- Red.

I executed #1 and #2 well, and then had a 45-minute disaster looking for #3. :-| I think I thought I had gone too far (when I really hadn't gone far enough), and then back-tracked prematurely. It was rocky and cactus-y, which slowed me down, too. I pretty much NEVER ask other people where I am on the map, no matter ow lost I am, but I resorted to that today and finally found the control. After 45 minutes.

The rest of the course went fine (minor inefficiencies here and there), and was fun.
