Orienteering race 1:23:36 [5] *** 5.88 km (14:13 / km) +205m 12:06 / km
spiked:8/12c shoes: VJ Falcons

Green Day 2 at West Point. An even worse performance than yesterday but on a much better course. Lost 10 minutes on the second control (drifted left, made all the parallel features match but there was no parallel flag with a parallel code). Lost another 5 minutes on 4 and then climbed over the spur getting to 6 which cost at least another minute. Good thing I did OK on the sprint because it was 0 for 2 on the A-meet runs this weekend.


Noticed after my run on Sunday that the sole of one of my o-shoes was mostly detached, so it may be time to break in some new ones. 430km in about 18 months seems like pretty decent performance, considering that over half of my orienteering is in rocky northeast US terrain. An endorsement for VJ Falcons I guess, although I have made several repairs with Shoe Goo over the life of the shoes.

Orienteering race 1:18:08 [5] *** 5.49 km (14:14 / km) +275m 11:23 / km
spiked:8/11c shoes: VJ Falcons

Green Day at West Point. Good terrain, good map, and a course which didn't take advantage of either. And not a very good run. Substantial mistakes on 3 different controls (3, 7 and 3 minutes). Two of them were parallel errors, the other was due to a flaky map and questionable control placement. Course was quite physical with lots of gratuitous climb, epecially on the last two controls. Nice day in the 60's with some sun. 7th in M50, 10th overall on Green (which surprised me considering the mediocre-at-best performance).

Orienteering race 19:05 [5] *** 2.2 km (8:40 / km) +60m 7:38 / km
spiked:20/22c shoes: NB 804 - Size 9.5

Team Fundraiser Sprint at Camp Buckner. Fun event on a very fine course by PG. Bobbled #13 and #21 for about 45sec of errors. Lost another second or two coming up the wall in the finish chute.

Orienteering (Field Checking) 2:15:00 [1] *** 8.75 mi (15:26 / mi)
shoes: NB 804 - Size 10

Finishing up field work for Billygoat and Sprints. Actual time was about 4.5 hrs but a lot of that was moving very slowly if at all. Visited about 10 of the BG controls to update codes since we inserted an additional control. Changed the first few controls of one of the sprint courses and made a few map updates (so the route choice through the unmapped medium green doesn't look so tempting). Checked control locations for the rec courses on BG day. Surprised by the distance I covered just wandering around - trusting that the Forerunner is correct.

50's to maybe 60 with some breeze. Found some patches of snow remaining at the higher elevations. Quite a few downed branches and some trail erosion (from the April 15-16 storm).
