Orienteering 35:00 [3] ***

A few controls on the model map. Here's what I've discovered:

White is ok, definitely not as fast as harriman, but faster than some places I've been. The visability is good.

Light Green is slower, but you can make your way through. Generally good visability.

Dark Green. No.

Yellow. Either nice, or not. Some places you can run just fine, usually knee-high gass. Other places are not nice and have a lot of crap and you can't run very fast, and you would probably wanna go around. for the most part, though, the yellow seemed alright, although tiny clearings can be tough to spot (since they could be anywhere).

Green slash (this is what I've been told) wide lines mean deadfall, close mean crap.

Orienteering 40:00 [3] *** 4.0 km (10:00 / km)

O-intervals on polebrook. Ran it as a course, though, and cut from 10-20. Ran easy, just trying to have good flow and be clean.

Orienteering 43:45 [3] *** 5.0 km (8:45 / km)

NAOC training at saxon woods. Ran with the GoPro. Pretty decent time out there. Had a few mistakes and a few of the streamers were miss-hung, but it was good for the most part.

I really wanna use the AP pro features, so when I find my garmin, I will put my training up.
3 PM

Running warm up/down 19:00 [3] 2.7 mi (7:02 / mi)

Nice quick warmup with the running star William who was to be my training partner for the day.

Running intervals 30:00 [3]

400, rest, hill X 2 then 4x400 i think. 400s were at 80s pace and the hills were about 95s. I managed to average under 80 I think. Rest was 1 minute after the 400 then 100s after the hill. I took a 3 minute rest after the second hill, before the last 4x400.

Running (Drills) 5:00 [3]

Running warm up/down 5:00 [3]

very easy cooldown.

Orienteering 30:00 [3] ***
10c (injured)

Not sure what to call this. It was like a control pick, except the area between some controls was whited out.

Orienteering 20:00 [3] ***
5c (injured)

short course. Started at 6 so I would be fresh for the contour-o

Orienteering (Contour Only) 35:00 [3] ***
6c (injured)

Flew through this course, but I hung most of the controls. The first one I went to that I didn't hang, though, I screwed up because I wasn't exactly focusing on map reading.
2 PM

Orienteering 45:00 [3] ***
11c (injured)

Pretty good course. I was fast for most of it but there were a few areas where I was unsure. I hung 2 of the controls, and on one of them, I was really unsure of because I was almost certain that I had hung it in the wrong spot based on how I was approaching it that time. Ethan thought it was right, though. Used my magnifier a lot on this course too, and it definitely helped a lot.
