orienteer race 53:15 [3] 3.4 km (15:40 / km) +158m 12:43 / km

OINK day 2, Camp Ernst

Day 2, trying to have another clean day. I was slow and befuddled a lot today, just not sharp. The controls kept coming up so fast and I wasn't planning well. Lots of little bobbles (leaving 1, stopping too soon on 5, missing 17, stopping too soon on 18) and one big route choice error (12) Used my plan to stop and think when things didn't make sense on 3 controls (5, 12 and 18) so that was progress. No major walk-abouts today. Just wish I had been thinking better.

Nice dinner tonight with Mike's sister Summer and her husband (they live in Lexington) at Farmstand Market and Cafe. Quite good food. The waiter saw us looking at an O map and asked about it, said someone had been in the night before, also had one of those maps, looked at it all through dinner :)

jog/walk warm up/down 15:00 [2]

Note: we started the day by visiting the Cincinnati Art Museum. Nice enough, couple of cool items.
This log entry is for my warm up before the race.
1 PM

orienteer 50:03 [3] 3.7 km (13:32 / km) +149m 11:16 / km

OINK day 1 at Waller-Stephenson Mill Park
Sunny and 50s

My goal was to have a clean race and I did fairly well. A 1-min bad route choice (13, had to go around some dark green), and few minor bobbles (10, 14) when I was getting tired. But the rest of the time I was able to concentrate and read the map well.

Mike thinks the woods were nicer than home (there was less underbrush) but I think the thorns were worse (lots of scratches on my arms).

Kudos to OCIN for getting some cool courses in such a tiny area. They also showed us the blank map one minute before the start, which was a nice touch.
