Trail/woods running 38:00 [2] 3.9 mi (9:45 / mi)
shoes: Loco training

Decent DP. Another balmy day in the making with a nippy start. Got Sno present as usual. To my great surprise, found a control resting on a small hemlock bough by a dirt road, #972, looking battered & old. Prob from last 11/1 meet - not sure how it would up in that particular place. Always amused/surprised/maybe made to feel guilty by such discoveries.

Orienteering race 54:41 [3] 4.6 km (11:53 / km)
shoes: Teva

UNO meet & club champs at Beaver Brook. Mild day, perfect conditions. Arrived late, was in a hurry, did a number of things that proved irritating, eg, did not number all circles & ran off with map case but no map - for some reason sitting on table. Looked down about 30m out & returned, a bit sheepish, started the next minute ETC. Ran right to #2 but it came up a bit soon. Wondered what could the feature be - I was looking for a depression. This appeared to be a bit of rocky ground, almost a knoll. Found something similar on map - knew reasonably well where I was but, upon proceeding, the depression did not show up - it was on the edge of fairly thick green. Did a whole bunch of antics, finally went to path, up to within sight of rock face, back down path & to same control, third time. Control appeared to be on a bit of rocky ground but was really just outside the south edge of the depression. It was staring back at me as I stared at it. Left out the fact that I checked code the first time - saw 520 on card but this was 536. 520 was the first control, go figure.... Time for leg was 11:10 - probably lost about 7' as the leg appears to be of 4' length & difficulty. Rest of course pretty good - nice woods, good detailed orienteering. Needed another control at the end to avoid the long run in. Jim Arsenault was 50+, tp 57 - did not see him to hear what fun he evidentally had. BP ran red. No falls or aches & bruises to speak of. 4 consecutive weekends with a local O venue.

Club mtg after. Offered a score O at Nottingcook 4/24. Some nice winter activities. Beth along for company.
