Orienteering race 1:37:12 [4] *** 5.2 km (18:42 / km) +215m 15:29 / km
spiked:8/12c shoes: VJ Falcons 2

Green course on Buttes Pass Map at Anza-Borrego SP. Good weather, good terrain, good map, really bad orienteering. Not a good debut on M55. Made a bunch of rookie mistakes - distracted by other people, didn't relocate as soon as I should have, wandered aimlessly, etc. Two major errors, a couple of small ones. Could've run about 55 min. Bleah.

Orienteering race 27:25 [5] *** 2.7 km (10:09 / km) +125m 8:15 / km
spiked:12/14c shoes: VJ Falcons 2

Sprint at Anza-Borrego. Fun course in technical terrain. One big error (~4min) one smaller one. Had my first "cholla experience" on the way to the first control, then a few more later in the race. Those things are nasty. Ended up 14th male.

Walking 1:00:00 [1] 3.0 mi (20:00 / mi)

Several short hikes at Joshua Tree NP. Sunny but fairly cold and windy. Temps in the lower 40's/upper 30's depending on elevation. At Key's View (a must visit location) we estimated the wind at about 40mph and it was about 35F - we didn't linger, even though it was clear enough to see the mountain near the Mexico border 85 miles away. It should be warmer at Anza-Borrego since the elevation is lower and I hope the winds will die down by Saturday. Really interesting terrain at Joshua Tree, but the rocky stuff is a bit too gnarly for orienteering.

Road Run 28:06 [3] 3.32 mi (8:28 / mi)
shoes: NB 878 - #6

66N to Pitt Rd and back. 28F and with off and on snow flurries throughout the day, there were a few slippery spots. Off to the desert southwest tomorrow for the Anza-Borrego meet.

Trail Run 1:19:34 [3] * 8.1 mi (9:49 / mi)
shoes: NB 809

Albany Pine Bush from the Discovery Center. Snow cover on about 1/3 of the trail (ranging up to maybe 6" deep, but generally packed or crusty). Upper 30''s with sun at the start. Covered most of the marked trails in this section of the Pine Bush plus a few of the unmarked ones. Lost my clip-on sunglasses (which I flipped up when it clouded up) and backtracked over a mile to the place where I suspected they had gotten knocked off, and found them!

AOWN: Crows, crows and more crows. Hundreds of them. A constant cacophony of caws.
