Orienteering race 27:35 [5] *** 3.05 km (9:03 / km) +105m 7:43 / km
spiked:8/11c shoes: VJ Falcons

Sprint #1 at Forest Park (Springfield, MA) on courses set by Phil. High humidity, forest wet from rain overnight. Generally small mistakes totaling 2 - 3 minutes. A bit long but a nice course with a good mix of wooded and park-like legs.

Orienteering race 33:20 [4] *** 3.47 km (9:36 / km) +115m 8:14 / km
spiked:11/13c shoes: VJ Falcons

Sprint #2 at Forest Park. Even warmer than for the first sprint. Another nice course by Phil. Ran fairly cleanly with only about 1 minute of errors. May have done better with some different route choices. High temperatures, physically tough woods legs and longish course with plenty of climb made it tough to go at "sprint" speed.

Road Run 26:55 [3] 3.0 mi (8:58 / mi)
shoes: NB 878 - #5

Rt. 66N, Shaker Musuem Road to T'way bridge and back. 67F and humid. Felt sluggish due to humidity and 4 days of sitting in meetings and not getting a chance to run.

Orienteering 2:02:03 [3] **** 7.3 km (16:43 / km)
shoes: VJ Falcons

Blue course at HVO event on Moneyhole Mountain map. An exercise in relocation and adjusting to the map. Map is 20 plus years old and is missing a few details - like the Appalachian Trail which runs across the whole map! And much of the map could be vertical green (blueberry). The vegetation often obscures handy navigation features like stone walls. Actually did fairly well with the relocation part, stopping and being able to read the features to determine where I was whenever I lost contact. A real confidence builder when you think that "the control should be right over there" and it is. Probably could have been 15 - 20 minutes faster. Started to sprinkle about halfway through and was raining by the time I finished.
