Orienteering race 1:07:38 [4] **** 6.8 km (9:57 / km) +110m 9:12 / km
spiked:16/18c shoes: VJ Falcons 2

NAOC Long Green Y on Klondike State Forest map. More glacial terrain with another excellent map and course. Overcast and humid, but no rain today.

Best run of the weekend. Clean through 8 except for some small hesitations on 1 and 3. Got stung on the ear by a bee coming out of 3 but pretty much ignored it. Saw Charlie S. coming into 4 as I was leaving (he started 6 min ahead), but never saw him again until the finish. Bad route choice to 9 when I decided to take the trail to the right. The area mapped as "open with scattered trees" was logging slash with ferns and the trail through the swamp wasn't particularly fast. Cost me about 2 minutes. Hesitated a bit going into 10 and then was the caboose on a train of M50/55's to 11. Left 11 with Rick Breseman and then punched just ahead of him at 12 having taken a different route. Rick and I flip-flopped for the rest of the race. Lost a minute on 17 by drifting too far right of the line and not correcting until I was almost at the road near the finish. Second fastest on the course (3:15 behind PG). First in M55 and fastest three day total time (so I won a Herkimer diamond!).

Excellent event put on by CNYO with excellent maps, courses and organization.

Orienteering race 48:13 [4] **** 4.1 km (11:46 / km) +98m 10:30 / km
spiked:11/13c shoes: VJ Falcons 2

NAOC - Middle Distance Green Y on Salmon River Fish Hatchery map. Complex glacial terrain with an excellent map and course. It was raining at the start and for most of the race. Fortunately it was fairly warm.

An OK run. Missed on two controls and had a bad route choice on another costing 6 - 7 minutes total. Was distracted on 3-4 by another runner and got pulled off to the left (3 min). Took the trail to the right on the way to 7 which cost 2 min. Went straight across the marsh to 10 but was off to the right. Also had hesitations at 8, 11, and 12. 10th overall on GreenY, 3rd M55. PG was 41:09, coach 43:32.

Orienteering race 12:27 [5] *** 1.8 km (6:55 / km) +50m 6:04 / km
spiked:11/11c shoes: VJ Falcons 2

North American Champs - Sprint Preliminary Course 2 (OGB) at Green Lakes SP. A good run with about 30 seconds of errors - 20 seconds by not seeing the ride as a route choice from 3 -4 and 10 seconds changing my plan to go to the right rather than left on 5 - 6. Was the third starter (Phil B. was first) so didn't have the benefit of herd paths which probably cost another 30 seconds or so. Had Phil in sight (or "in the sight") off and on from the 3rd control to the finish but never caught him. 8th overall on the course, 1st in M55. Overcast, showery and in the 60's.

Orienteering race 15:18 [5] *** 2.3 km (6:39 / km) +40m 6:07 / km
spiked:14/16c shoes: VJ Falcons 2

NAOC Sprint Final - Course 2 (OGB). Not as good a run as the prelim. with about a minute's worth of errors. Went through the rough open for 5-6 and followed the wrong herd path for a 30 second loss. Around on the road was faster. Came out of 11 in the wrong direction and hit the main road, costing another 30 seconds. 13th overall on the course, 2nd in M55 and got nipped by 5 seconds by Charlie S. for total time for the two sprints. Fun sprint courses except for the small inequity caused by herd paths in the rough open vegetation.

Road Run tempo 34:25 intensity: (27:25 @3) + (7:00 @4) 4.1 mi (8:24 / mi)

Road Run 38:48 [3] 4.53 mi (8:34 / mi)
shoes: NB878 - #8

Syring, Albany Turnpike to the gas pipeline and back (uphill out, downhill back). 60 and clear. Negative split by about 2 minutes, more because I was sluggish on the way out rather than fast on the way back.
