Middle distance, Boggs Mtn. Actually pretty good. No huge errors, but several bobbles, one bad route, and one 3 minute overrun, trying for a safer route, when just going straight would have been fine, and safe wasn't as safe as it looked.

A beautiful day, and fine courses.

Generally satisfactory family outing, as Rhonda finished the yellow and Kathy, Chris and the girls the white at about the same time I did.

Brown course (long) at Boggs Mt A meet. Mostly pretty good, with some lapses toward the end. Spiked 1, 2 and 3. Not bad on 4, but a little right and had to correct. Too far R on 5 and got on the wrong small trail, which cost a little. Back and forth with Sharon a lot. Got well ahead of her on the long trail run to 6, but then I took the trail,all the way to the yellow clearing 100 m south for the easy attack, except there were two unmapped clearings before the one with the control that stopped me for a while, and Sharon caught up again contouring. Got ahead again, but stuck in the green across the trail and had to back out, so just caught up again at #7. Overran 8 with Sharon and had to come back, and she got out much quicker. Took a long time to catch her on the small trail above 9, and then I missed the turn off, as the bends in the trail seemed a lot more subtle on the ground than on the map. Ran almost to the finish and was pretty disappointed to find myself there, so back to 9, losing about 5 min. Contour and compass to the rocky ground at 10, but there were a lot of boulders there and had to check all of them before I found it. Then easy to find the finish again. All I had to do was hang with Sharon the last few to run a 53, but moving too fast for my own good.

Orienteering 18:36 intensity: (16 @1) + (2:03 @2) + (6:01 @3) + (9:14 @4) + (1:02 @5) 1.88 km (9:53 / km) +102m 7:46 / km

Brown sprint race at Boggs.

Climbing the hill on the trail to the first control was really hard. Seemed like I was barely moving. Then spiked 2, but misread the clue sheet and looking for a boulder on 3 instead of the cliff, wandered past for a bit, losing about a minute. Contoured around green on 4, but got way too low and another hill climb on a trail. Got on the ride and the unmapped extension of the ride below 5 for a while, until I figured I was just too low and climbed right into it. 6 was fine, 7 also pretty good, although I didn't see the gap in the green on the map and was a bit surprised by it when I got there. Went past #1 on purpose on the way to 8, then contoured a bit on 9, but the trail was close, so I dropped to it. More or less straight across on 10 and 11, others in the area, including Chris Brew. Trail most of the way to 12.

The other sprint course (course A), with my faithful dog. I had a massage yesterday, and while I still have some pretty significant back discomfort, this was the free-est my legs have felt in several weeks. Plenty distracted, blew by #10.

Orienteering 18:09 intensity: (8 @1) + (3:20 @2) + (12:32 @3) + (2:09 @4) 2.02 km (8:59 / km) +53m 7:56 / km

In between calls, tried Course B again. I like the newer configuration better.
4 PM


Distressed about the sorry state of my foot, I went to the podiatric guy for another opinion. He looked at the x-ray for a while, said, yeah, the toe is broken, and broken into the joint. Those things take a while, so no wonder it is still sore and swollen. Took some more x-rays, thinks he can do some stuff to improve it, and also to clean up the bone spur I've developed on the metatarsal. That's the area where I hurt it again at the BG. Not really eager to do anything about it right away. Too much travel planned next couple of months, so deal with it in the late fall or early winter, I guess.

One of the sprint courses, with Sassy. No map, of course, but also thinking about a lot of other things, and blew by #4, went back for it, then blew by #5. At least I remembered to go to the rest of them. Thinking about maybe moving a control to reduce climb. FR says 78 M, but based on the map I was thinking it looked more like 100.
