Running 10:00 [1]

Orienteering 1:27:12 [3] 9.2 km (9:29 / km)

NAOC WRE Long @ Burnt Mountain

Wow, that was impressive terrain. Felt very challenged by it, went slow and carefully. Felt a total turtle to the first 3 controls, just going slowly and staying in contact. Had some misses in the control circle, but generally clean. Strung together trails basically the whole way on our longest leg and think that was a good choice for me.

After the long leg, could tell Louise had gained, but was actually encouraged she hasn't yet caught me, so kept up the fight. But on the next medium-long leg, I lost a contact to a hemlock or pine branch. I hoped for a little bit that it was just squidged somewhere funny in my eye and I might get it back, but nope. The whole world was funny looking after that. For some reason, things looked sparkly, especially in the first 10 minutes as my eyes adapted most rapidly to the new situation.

Louise caught me a few controls after that, and then I kept up the chase, which wasn't that hard as mostly thereafter a road run and a bit of a control pick. Happy with the result, would have liked to see if I could have stayed ahead if I had kept 100% vision.

Running 5:00 [2]

Orienteering race 39:00 [3]

NAOC WRE Middle @ Storrs Pond/Oak Hill

Neat to be where I spent so much time in college skiing. Not a great race. Very control-picky and my compass work and orienteering wasn't up to the task. AP thinks I only made 30s of error, but it was more like I made 10-20s of error on nearly every control, and so consistent. Ah well.

Afterwards, got to chat with Putt Blodgett, who was my canoeing coach when I was on the woodsmen's team at Dartmouth. He's a legend and I was honored he came out to watch me and happy to get to catch up with him a bit afterwards.

Traverse pre-run, Norwottuck edition. Have fun all! =)

Gave my talk at UMass Amherst afterwards at Star Formation lunch. Was a good turn out and great questions throughout, glad I opted to give even thought it meant more stress preparing it!

So much awesome orienteering today! Sprinty-focus with sprint relay at Mountain Lakes, NY and lots of Corn Maze in Sunderland, MA.

My orienteering wasn't awesome, many mistakes made, but hopefully getting them out of my system and brain more tuned for orienteering the sprint at NAOCs!
