Running warm up/down 9:39 intensity: (15 @0) + (1:16 @1) + (1:03 @2) + (5:32 @3) + (1:14 @4) + (19 @5) 1.52 km (6:22 / km) +52m 5:26 / km

When I pulled into the parking lot today my first thought was that my best next course of action would be to immediately pull back out of the parking lot and drive back to Altamont. I just really couldn't imagine going out and running 90+ minutes. I was too exhausted and had too much wedding planning on my mind. Luckily I decided that it was okay to run a shorter course, because orienteering is fun and I should do fun things, and finishing a shorter course would be more fun than no course or DNFing a long course.

Orienteering 45:49 intensity: (34 @1) + (9:11 @2) + (18:43 @3) + (14:56 @4) + (2:25 @5) *** 4.94 km (9:17 / km) +45m 8:53 / km

Brown at O in the Pines

After I recovered from seriously overrunning the (should-have-been) trivial first control I had a good time. Discipline improved throughout the course and I enjoyed the contrast from yesterday, flatter terrain with lots more low-vis areas. Far less rocky but some areas were pretty junky on the ground. The combination of the two sides of the road makes for a good test of many different orienteering skills.

Running warm up/down 10:00 [2] 1.67 km (6:00 / km)

Red at O in the Pines.

Had a little trouble getting into the map for the first few controls. My nose was bleeding and I kept thinking, "why do I ever think this is a good idea?" (orienteering so soon after trans-Atlantic travel) but I snapped out of it and got the hang of the map. I think I could have done without all the indistinct trails cluttering it up but I was mostly making sense of it. I wasn't super disciplined in my orienteering and the result of that was taking wide hooks into each control. At least I was finding them.

Then, on the approach to 9, I got lost. I can't figure out what I was seeing, even after I found the control I couldn't tell where I'd been. Probably a nice 5 minutes lost there. Finished stronger.

I liked the terrain. From the sounds of it I am in the minority. The visibility was good, and though the ground was rocky at least there wasn't anything growing on top of it and obscuring the view, making it quite manageable. Nice day in the woods, though I did not perform much better than survival.
