jog/walk 1:05:00 [2] 5.86 km (11:05 / km) +72m 10:27 / km

Finally got out the door to do some exercise. Like many others, I caught a cold at NAOC. But mine was very mild and I certainly could have exercised this week. The weather was perfect with sunny skies and cooling temps. yet I had no motivation to train. Every day I came home and said "Nah, not today"

Mike and I went to Clinton, and I started walking on the trails. But then my Garmin reminded me that it was still set for 4/1 repeats, and a little bit of vibration was enough to get me to start jogging on the trail. Kept up the 4/1 pattern for an hour.

Saw many hikers out today, enjoying the "free park entry" day. Also, one deer and one snakeskin.

orienteer 22:56 [3] 2.6 km (8:49 / km) +58m 7:56 / km

A disappointing day. But a wonderful weekend.

I'm really disappointed with all the mistakes I made today.
Punched 2 and just looked up and picked a building, The wrong building.
At 8, I have no idea how I miscounted pass-throughs.
16 was disappointing, because I was heading to the control, but other folks went there, didn't punch, and left. So I followed them

When I finished and heard that I was 16th in my class, I fell apart (inside)
I was so disappointed.
It ruined my good feelings of the whole weekend, which is too bad.
Took me while to get over this disaster (mentally)

Time lost = 18%
Consistency = 22.5%

Overall, I should be pleased with the last two weekends of racing.
My goal was to avoid huge blowups, and I did that for 4 of the races.
which is much better than I have done in recent years.
