Orienteering 1:30:00 [2]

'Map jogging' at Babler - parked at Dr. Babler's. Hadn't been on MO's ridge reentrant maps in a while - felt good. Variety of legs, map reading, minor features, etc. Paw paw leaves mostly down, but still limited pace and visibility - hope it felt like Nationals next week.

Orienteering 1:33:42 [4]

Long course as 3rd event, 4th run, in 3 days - Maintain focus and some pace was major goal. Legs felt better than expected - minimal climb really helped. Only bad error was 5-6 - wandered into dark green (ouch!) and took 5-6 minutes to get out of it to field well north - 2 more minutes to get back on line. Lost time on 7, 8, 9, but stayed in contact with map and relocated well. Curiously, I used #9 to attack 1 and later used #1 to attack 9. Smoother finish. Ran second half of course of and on with Paul Clattebuck and CAOC junior. This usually causes me to 'run away' and make errors - not today.

Excellent course - lots of route choice and most of green could be avoided. Very well-mapped.

2nd on M55; 6th on course both days. Tough courses for lots of us.

Running warm up/down 6:00 [2]

Just enough to get heart pumping - knew that course would warm me up very quickly.
