Running 15:00 [1]

The long was very tough. Very tough. Seperated the men from the boys and a worthy test. I misread the map to #1 and planned for #7 first, but I took the wrong route anyway. I took the trail that went NW from the start. It didn't save me any climb. I guess I was in denial. My body was tired today and Nick caught me to 5, and I had hardly done any mistakes, although going NE out from #4 was perhaps not the best route choice. Both Nick and I missed 6 and to 8, he was gone (I did see him miss that one though). To 10, I went left and took the trail just S of 23 and then straight on. After that I only did two mistakes: 12, I went straight N out from 11 and had to "back track" and Nick caught me again to 13. Jon caught me to 23 and I was now getting really tired, but still running. I saw Nick again at 24, and I punched just before Jon and Nick at 26, but they beat me with 45 seconds to the finish line.

Orienteering race 40:00 [4]

Running 30:00 [1]

AM: Made 20 seconds on the first one perhaps, my impression is that the re-entrant stopped much earlier before the control than shown on the map, but I could be wrong. I was lucky on the second control. Caught Chris P to number three and ran hard to 4, 5 and 6, but made 30 seconds on 6, I read it as a ridge, not a re-entrant. Got lost to 7, way to the left, lost maybe as much as 2 min, and I didn't catch Chris until 9 again. To 10, my shoe started to fall apart.No problem with 11, but to 12, I went right - should have gone left, and dropped off my sole. So running to 13 with practically only one shoe I caught Chris again, but we both made 20-30s. Hesitated 15 sec at 14, but the remaining two no problems. Not a stellar race, and I wouldn't have been surprised if Jon and/or Nick had beat me.

Running 30:00 [1]

PM: A bit easier than expected, and I did a good race. Went straight to seven and got stuck + had to go around parts of the out-of-bounds, so going right, using trails would have been better. I drifted slightly off to 12 and lost maybe 5-10 seconds there, but I was getting tired too. At 13, I didn't look carefully enough at the map and/or decription and ran around the northern building (however, my initial plan was to run between the buildings, but that was impossible. Junk). Very impressive run by Jon anyway.
