Governor Dick Score-O. Picked a route that visited what I knew were nice parts of the park and a handful in a section I had never been to before that were a bit rockier but looked doable (translation: a good trail network that would get me close to them).
Skipped two near the end that would have involved a good bit of climb and I didn't think I could get them in the time I had left. Might have been able to get them for 100 pts and skipped one for 82 points but decided not to try. I had had a nice hike around - only jogged a couple times on some nice soft trails - and gone to some great controls and had accomplished what I intended so decided to be happy with that.
And it was good enough for the win! Well, top female. Due mostly to the fact that the faster women didn't show up.
Controls: 31-37-3241-51-49 (so pretty much straight up the hill) -72-33 (and back down to head over to the NE section where I'd never been) - 54-80-38-84-75 (then back the way I came by 33 to get water) - 61-52-42-62 (the other section I'd never been to - so nice over there) - decided to skip 44 and 56 and did 82 and in. Might have had time to go get 85 but didn't want any pressure to run.
Class. The Saturday morning crowd is much bigger and much younger and so the workout is tougher, which is good. She really likes ballet moves though and in particular second position plies which are not kind to my knee. I keep experimenting with modifications but haven't found something I like yet.

Felt pretty good for most of this and was really enjoying the beautiful day. Had planned a little more but developed a shin splint in my right leg and decided not to push it. Hopefully a little icing and ibuprofen will fix it.
