Hiking warm up/down 18:04 intensity: (3:47 @1) + (5:16 @2) + (6:08 @3) + (2:53 @4) 1.05 km (17:13 / km) +70m 12:56 / km
ahr:117 max:141 shoes: 2022 VJ Falcon 6.5. GA

From Porta-johns to start of Middle race at West Point (Camp Buckner). Also walked about 0.36mi from the car to this area, but didn't record it. Low 70s, partly cloudy but enough sun that I sprayed on some sunscreen.

Orienteering race (Brown Y Middle) 51:30 intensity: (2:32 @2) + (17:09 @3) + (25:07 @4) + (6:42 @5) *** 3.06 km (16:49 / km) +50m 15:33 / km

2023 West Point NRE on Lake Popolopen map, Brown Y Middle course (F70+ and M80+, and all Brown open), 2.3 km, 30 m climb (after an 80m+ climb from parking) on a 1:7500 map originally drawn in 2010 so some vegetation was a bit out of date. Still, great visibility for the most part! Short sleeve weather... low 70s and a bit muggy (front came through later in the afternoon) but a decent breeze.

Started off relatively well, staying on the small intermittent trail until I could see the lay of the land. When I crossed the bigger trail (Bob Bullions crossed my path, on his way from 4-5 here) I knew where I was. Saw a flag on a rocky knoll and was pretty sure it wasn't my boulder (not far enough) but it was on my route so I looked at the number (it was on Brown X). Exited 1, crossed the big trail, went S of the cliffs to skirt around the N side of the green marsh, saw a dot knoll with small cliff, then headed east passing a larger cliff and stream...but then didn't end up where I thought I was and searched a bit before relocating and finding the bag. Several minutes lost there.

Leaving 2 I thought I headed far enough SW to skirt the marsh but misread rocks and hills ending up too far north and bounced off the big trail not far from where I'd crossed it between 1 and 2...d'oh! Saw a big enough rock for #3 (foot of 2m cliff) but some people around it looked confused so I went around it from above to see if a flag was on the next cliff up, which it wasn't, so I circled around and found it low.

The rest went well with time lost just on fighting through or otherwise not taking the optimum route between controls due to barberry which fortunately isn't at the really poke-y stage yet. Went a bit high between 5&6 because I'd spotted a bag on a boulder several contours above my spur but hadn't spotted the one on the spur until I went farther.

Third of six for the age group, well behind Linda K at 40min and Janet F at around 46. Not making mistakes would have put me close to Janet's time.

2 PM

Walking (paved roads) warm up/down 4:00 intensity: (8 @1) + (2:14 @2) + (1:38 @3) 0.29 km (13:39 / km) +5m 12:34 / km
ahr:118 max:133 shoes: 2019 Altra LP4.0 9 rspb

We'd moved the car between the earlier race and the sprint so we were closer to the start. This is the walk to porta-johns from the car. We noted several control flags in the terrain, some of which later appeared on our course. Starts were delayed 15 minutes (reason unexplained) so I didn't start until almost 3:30.

3 PM

Walk/Jog warm up/down 2:37 intensity: (3 @1) + (2 @2) + (9 @3) + (1:12 @4) + (1:11 @5) 0.23 km (11:26 / km)
ahr:148 max:156 shoes: 2019 Altra LP4.0 9 rspb

A bit of jogging around the field near the sprint start, to loosen up my knee and to see whether my right ankle would hold up, which it did. I'd worn a Don Joy brace on it during the middle race after feeling tweakiness in it yesterday in the grocery store(!).

Orienteering race (Brown Sprint) 24:08 intensity: (7 @0) + (6 @1) + (2:01 @2) + (3:55 @3) + (15:19 @4) + (2:40 @5) *** 2.04 km (11:50 / km) +16m 11:23 / km
ahr:139 max:166 spiked:16/16c shoes: 2019 Altra LP4.0 9 rspb

Sprint NRE on the Camp Buckner map at 1:4000. There was just one Brown sprint course, 1.9 km with 20m climb stated.

I started several minutes after Judy Karpinski, and was lucky to see her exiting #1, a ruined shack supposedly at the end of a white corridor surrounded by barberry/green. I might have lost time here otherwise. As it was I was hampered getting over the large tree trunk both going in and coming back out. #2's pit was barely mappable, and the flag was down in it (sitting on the bottom of it about a foot below the surrounding area).

Judy had a bit of a head start from there and I didn't see her again until #9. We both exited to the roadway north of the building, but I opted to run through the "tennis courts" because I could see a way out at the end that took me in line with the control. She took the road a bit farther south and around the building and I saw her coming in to #10 as I headed to #11. Stayed ahead in to the finish which was on the peninsula west of Barth Hall.

Results unavailable so far (8:30pm). I think a few boxes weren't synced correctly. A couple of my controls (time of day on the control) had me reaching them before I'd punched the subsequent control...I suspect there's some results massaging to be done to post splits, if at all.

We're staying in Ramsey, NJ (northbound side of Rt 17) and noted an Anthony's Coal-Fired Pizza just a few properties north so that's where we ended up for dinner.

9 PM


WinSplits shows me first of three in F70, 21st on the course.
