Shadowing 28:24 [1] 1.75 km (16:14 / km) +40m 14:34 / km

Shadowing Stephen Koehler on COCC White course. He spazzed and started to cry when he first turned the map over, not understanding the parking lots, but things got much better once he was in the woods.

Orienteering race 16:24 [4] *** 2.7 km (6:04 / km) +60m 5:28 / km

COCC Sprint (Bend, OR). My best sprint point jackpot for the year.

Orienteering race 41:44 [3] *** 4.82 km (8:40 / km) +100m 7:51 / km

Arnold Ice Cave, middle distance. Far from perfect, but good enough for 1st in M40. Actually grabbed the wrong map, and was confused when Jim Baker caught up in the butterfly. Until I realized I had grabbed the opposite fork, I thought he had caught up 4 minutes on me.

indoor gym equipment 6:22 [4]

Running on treadmill in the hotel weight room. I don't think I'd ever been on one before. I had it up to 16 mph(?), but at that point Nancy was yelling that I was going to fall off the back and crash.

Running in terrain 43:43 [2]

Running in the dark on trails in Town Forest. The hatlamp now has gone about 90 minutes since I changed the the low-beam batteries (Manitou and tonight).

Ordinary people might be afraid to head out onto unknown trails, for fear of getting lost. Particularly so in the dark. But not me! I'm an orienteer, and have no fear of getting lost. The other thing that would intimidate some people about running around in the dark is the possibility of encountering wild animals. I did scare up one varmint that crossed the trail and hightailed it out of there fast. I wasn't quick enough on the switch to get the high-beam on it, but I'm guessing it was probably a coyote. Looked kind of tawny-colored so I guess it could have been a bobcat, but a coyote seems more likely. Much too timid to be an attack badger. But at least I haven't had to deal with the one critter that I do worry about: skunk. (Also no more FDFs out there it seems -- hallelujah!)
