Orienteering 1:15:00 [3] **** 5.7 km (13:09 / km)

I set the course for today at the very last minute. Three butterfly loops and then some nice long trail runs (downhill!) towards the end. legs felt slow in the beginning, but then we lost Loki and I went runnign back to find him, to no avail, decided he had gone with K, so I sprinting down the trail to catch back up with him (skipping the second loop) and Loki came dashing up to me from who knows where. hmph. Then on the third loop I lost the dog again!! This is getting frustrating. Again, thought he went with K, so I went dashing up the trail again, faster than race pace probably (legs were feeling good at this point), grabbed a few controls in my race to catch up with kristoffer, then skipped the very last one, on my sprint back to the car to make sure that K had the dog. Nope! He was lost in the woods. Just as we were goign to head back out to call for him, he came running down the trail and back to the cars. What a good tracker dog! Who knows where he was. Probably chasing the moose that K scared up (twice!) or perhaps the porcupine that I ran into (though he had no quills stuck in his nose.) So, I didn't end up doing the whole course, but had a really good training run anyway.
