Orienteering race (Sprint 2) 43:14 [3] *** 2.94 km (14:41 / km) +70m 13:07 / km
spiked:12/14c shoes: Inov8 ORoc280-B 2013-10

French Creek Central Wednesday Sprint Series sprint, last of the season. Nominally 2.5 km, 50m climb. Another sweat fest wth temps near 90 and high humidity at the start, though a slight breeze started up in the open areas. Map was last updated in 2012, so I was expecting inaccuracies especially since we'd used it a week and a half before at the Rogaine.

Didn't expect a mapped-as-open field to be rough open, though...on the way to #1, which I think was intended to be on a tree that's no longer there (there's one on the satellite view in the right spot but I'm not sure it exists now). As I waded through the shoulder-high-in-some-places grass I could see another orienteer in a blue shirt at a tree so I headed his way. He helped a bit on finding the right trail to #2 as well, then we parted ways to #3 but I turned the wrong way on hitting the ditch and he was there before me. I think I fell somewhere here and put a hole in my map, but fortunately it was through the lake and not part of the course.

Got ahead of blue shirt* for good on the downhill to 4. Stayed in the woods and was off to the left to 5 but I could see some larger boulders and the slope of the hill and corrected at the right time. Ate some really nice, ripe raspberries on the way to 6. ;-) The rest was pretty straightforward.

*After I was done he was at the refreshment table and laid his map and splits down; name is David Morgan.

Orienteering race (Sprint 1) 19:46 [3] *** 2.0 km (9:54 / km) +23m 9:22 / km
spiked:11/11c shoes: Inov8 ORoc280-B 2013-10

Nominally 1.9 km. This was more of a white course so pretty easy and a good way to finish. Not much climb so I was able to jog more than on the first sprint I did.

Thanks to Nate and Steve Orwaschel for all their work on these sprints (and Sandy F on the rest)... great way to motivate me to run in the summer heat. These were US Team fundraisers and they figure about $250/week was raised.

Yoga 50:00 [1]

With Glen and I the only class attendees today we did some more challenging poses, since the instructor has noted we do well with the stuff she usually throws at us.

Eagle, for one, and some Warrior variations. Warrior 3 with one foot on the wall was interesting...I'd almost rather do it balancing (better for ankle strengthening) but I guess this way gets you into the pose straighter.
