Orienteering race 58:23 [4] *** +215m
spiked:12/13c shoes: VJ Falcons 2

Green X Day 2 at NEOC Troll Cup Revival meet on Mt. Tom map. Good run except for one control, # 3. Was too far SW of the control, relocated poorly (back to where I hadn't found the control) and fumbled around until I saw Janet punching at the bag further downhill from where I was. Lost 6 or 7 minutes. Pretty clean for most of the rest of the course, which was somewhat less technical than Saturday's and with some nice open fast woods. A very good course set by Jeff Shapiro (who also did a nice job as meet director). Weather was outstanding, 50's and sunny (warming into the 60's by awards time), after an inch or two of rain overnight. Was 3rd overall in M55, about 10th on Green X, and second for two day total time in M55.

Orienteering race 1:04:14 [4] *** 4.9 km (13:07 / km) +275m 10:14 / km
spiked:10/13c shoes: VJ Falcons 2

Green X Day 1 at Mt. Tom. Very nice course set by Phil with lots of technical stuff and good route choices. Started and finished up near the top of the ridge. Lost 3 minutes on the first control by trying to go straight rather than take the trail, then lost another 2 min on 2 and relocating where the stream hit the trail. Settled down after that and did OK except for losing map contact going to 11 and lucking out to relocate when I saw a bag on the stream junction just north of the beeline. Lost another minute or two on hesitations while executing various legs. Total errors about 8 minutes. 2nd in M55, 6th overall on Green X (M50, 55 and 60).
Overcast and 50's with a few sprinkles during the race.

Whacked my shin just above the ankle on the end of a log just after #11. Ouch!
