PTOC event at Lexington Lake. Dean set the courses. In planning the courses he looked at locations used in prior events and only used features we'd never used before. We didn't have a control in the pit of despair.
Scott R was 17 seconds ahead of me. I wasn't surprised to see that I was ahead at the last control and he passed me on the run in. Scott runs faster than me. But I was a little surprised by how much fast he was on the run in.
Fun course and nice day.
Got home in time to have lunch and then settle in to watch the KU-Baylor game. That was fun, too.
Temp in the mid 20s and mist/drizzle falling. Pavement was icy but not a significant problem in O' shoes.
I saw more people out driving around that I'd expected. I saw two people blow through red lights on Clinton Parkway. They probably decided it was best not to try to brake on the slick roads, just blow through the red light instead,
Morning headlamp jog. The first time this year without any orienteering.
A few raindrops fell when I began.
My legs felt good. That surprised me. I slept a lot last night (went to bed around 8:30 and was woken by the alarm a bit before 6). When I got up this morning, but legs didn't feel good. But after about 5 minutes of jogging, my legs felt good. Strange.
I did 2 MTBO sessions. I did 2 moderately bogus sessions. One was working on a sprint map and the other was map hikes to/from a conference at KU.
The 31 sessions were spread out on 13 different maps (14 if you consider the West Campus sprint map and 1:10K map as different maps...but I don't).
No injuries. No illnesses.

Orienteering practice at the Riverfront. I figured it was the best location for tired legs (being flat and with nice forest). I took one pretty hard fall when I slipped on some mud. The temp was warm, so some areas were a little bit of mud on top of still-frozen dirt. I don't understand why, but my left wrist was sore before I fell, but fine now. My map got coated in mud.
In the middle of the orienteering I went out on a sandbar and jogged around looking for bones. I found a few, but nothing very interesting.
