orienteering 45:00 [1] ***

Very low intensity O' technique at Clinton Overlook. Mary arranged some sort of intermediate training (for folks who'd orienteered a little bit and wanted to learn more). I worked with Julia, Jack, Erin and Dave. We did some technique stuff in the woods and snow. It was fun and it seemed to be well received. It'll be interesting to see if the things we worked on help

I gave a little thought to doing another session today (maybe just a West Campus run), but I think I'll rest.

Misty rain falling the entire time.

Night line O' on West Campus. This was fun. I don't like to do much line orienteering. But it was fun tonight.

My effort was very gentle.

orienteering 10:00 [2] ***

Night sprint course on West Campus. Lots of fun even if it was a very short course. Fun.

My legs felt more dead than I had hoped.

We had a mix of rain/sleet/snow all day, but then it stopped when I got home. I had to shovel the driveway to get rid of the sleet. The temp was above freezing.

At the end of the run I spent some time chatting with our neighbor Jerry. I got a little cold.

orienteering 51:18 intensity: (23 @1) + (59 @2) + (2:50 @3) + (47:06 @4) 5.83 km (8:48 / km)
ahr:159 max:172

Map and track:

Green at Hard Labor Creek.

My legs and running felt ok. I was pleasantly surprised that my calf was ok.

I saw Nathan Jones from West Point off and on.

One small-ish boom when I misunderstood the contour interval (I was thinking, "climb a line" but forgot that a line was only 2.5 m). Also one mind-wandering-but-didn't-cost-any-time.

Note to self for the next time we run on this map:

Ditches and gullies were no trouble to cross. Some ditches were really small. Having 3 levels of ditches isn't necessary. Treat ditch symbols more like indicators that there are some ditchy-things, don't try to use them to really navigate.

Rocks - there are some legit rocks. But there are also lots of very small rock features mapped.

Just focus on contours.
