Orienteering race 24:54 [3] ** 3.6 km (6:55 / km) +110m 6:00 / km
spiked:22/27c shoes: Icebug

Nice sprint course. Goal achieved - just run to get a nat'l sprint result to erase the NAOC not punching the spectator control debacle. Goal not achieved: clean run. Tunnel visionsed the mandatory crossing point / busy road crossing...became so fixated on making sure I crossed properly that I passed 8, crossed street and almost hit 9, then realized I passed 8 so had to recross road, punch 8, then go back across road to 9. On 20 I read clue sheet that it was under bridge, so I ran down hill under bridge, only to realize I didn't account for the fact it is on the other side of the road that I can't cross due to the course restriction, so then had to run back up hill, cross over bridge, then back down hill on other side. 21 I just went to wrong control...very close to other one, so I got sucked in. That was a dumb mistake. Most of rest of course was pretty clean but felt sluggish the whole run, and looking at the pace I confirmed I was sluggish. Probably something to do with 4am wake up to catch the flight, but I also could have prepared better. Other goal not achieved (I assume): 70 on Blue. Th 68.5 on Middle Blue at Flying Pig gave me hope I could pull it off today, but doesn't look like I got the job done. Perfect weather, great course, lots of fun, and I was really happy to be out there after a tough week at work with my successful checkride Wed. Looking fwd to some snow-O tomorrow.

Orienteering 30:56 [3] ** 5.25 km (5:54 / km) +25m 5:45 / km
spiked:11/13c shoes: X-Talon 212

Self-made course on Parker permanent course map. Was feeling hugely out of breath for 1st 3 controls, don't know why. But felt mostly good for rest of run. Some new construction and features popped up since map was made.

Tomorrow is my attempt to redeem myself from the infamous NAOC Sprint on Dartmouth where I ran & nav'd really well, but didn't punch the stupid spectator control. So goal tomorrow at MNOC sprint is to just run a clean nat'l sprint at a decent pace to erase the NAOC fiasco. Not that I'm bitter or something...

CY17 control goal count = 414

Orienteering 44:43 [3] *** 6.58 km (6:48 / km) +80m 6:24 / km
spiked:14/17c (sick) shoes: X-Talon 212

Bear Creek Lake Park, Green from Apr 2015. Better than yesterday but 1st half of run was still hacking up flem and got to a few points where I was bent over painfully trying to cough it up. Still felt pretty weak too, but a lot better than yesterday. Couldn't cut it short due to the "I'm going to get my $ worth" motivation from the astronomical $10 fee just to go in for an hour, ugh.

Lots of gulleys that were pretty difficult to cross weren't on this map so hopefully the updated version accounts for that. Rest of map was still great.

If I feel the same on Thurs as I do today I'm going to have to axe the MNOC Sprint. Tomorrow is the usual Sunday rest day so re-check myself on Monday.

CY17 control goal count = 374
