X-cntry running 20:00 [3]
shoes: Adidas

Just enough time for a nice trail run through the park, under the natural bridge, and past the cliffs. Glad the clouds came to temper the hot temps of the South. Also got to watch General Conference and Michigan football. What a play, Jourdan Lewis, Hail!

Just realized I was only 3 min's away from a 70 score (OUSA, not AP) on the NAOC sprint (had I not flown past the spectator control of course). And my NAOC Long was counted as OT (basically would have had to score in the 70s just to not be OT on that one). Double ugh. Back to training after the TDY craziness.

(rest day)

Rest day. Reflected on the past week. Totally awesome time and it really helped me expedite getting back into the game per say. Huge thanks to Coach, other Armed Forces development team athletes, Thierry, and event organizers for an incredible week. And so nice to spend some time w/ the fam. Nice to see fellow Armed Forces orienteers plus wonderful people that I've met from various parts of the country. And tremendous scenery in NH/VT/NY. Eye is healing after Saturday's branch collision. Also decided 2 things this past week. 1- I like Middles better than Longs. 2- When the time comes to get out of the M21E business (hopefully that's not anytime soon) I will start doing soaring (gliders) as a sport. They have a navigation component to some of the competitions too. Racing, cross country, altitude records, etc.

Orienteering race 26:12 [4] ** 3.3 km (7:56 / km) +70m 7:11 / km
spiked:23/23c shoes: X-Talon 212

I had 1 mistake & only 1 mistake today. I passed by the control at end of spectator lawn without punching it! Even saw the control ahead of me, looked at map to check, and for some reason I surmized that it wasnt on my course...which for a picosecond or two seemed strange to me, but then on I went bolting past it. Hugely deflated after getting the printout. Words can't describe the internal outrage. Would have been my highest scoring event the whole week and it was my 1st perfect national sprint navigation-wise, but I blew it. I think its been years since I MP'd on a course as that was a problem for me when I first started the sport. That all said I obvioisly need to work on building my speed back up too as my normal sprint times were in the 5 to 7 min/km range back in the ohio summer fast-o days on comparable courses circa 2009-2013 and today was at 8/km. On the positive side I had a 100% clean course, I would have given anything to run 8/km just a few months back, let alone orienteer at a NAOC, and it was a very fun course on a nice campus on a beautiful day and it counted for military points credit, so I wont be complaining.
