trail run (/ hike) 20:00 [2] 1.4 km (14:17 / km) +200m 8:20 / km

up, up, up to the start. didn't give myself enough time. got up there and they called my name. didn't have time to exhale.

orienteering 1:10:20 [3] **** 6.9 km (10:12 / km) +250m 8:38 / km

When knowing what to expect from the map and the terrain I changed my strategy and went more straight on instead of standing around thinking about route choices.

1: Slight right side of the line, cut out to the trail, went up on the hill to depression on the left, followed depression down reentrant, along the cliffs to the marsh
2: Slow and hesitant, followed the trail for a while, stopped a lot to check where I was. "Got lucky" and crossed the 2nd trail right by that little yellow spot, nice and slow to the control from there.
3: Went to the right of the line, again many stops, didn't notice when crossing the trail, understood where I was as I went down to the right of the row of cliffs, crossed stream, up in between hills and to the left
4: Checked another boulder before I saw the control
5: Loong leg. Planned to go straight on and use the trail in between the marshes. I veered off too much to the left and had to correct to avoid crossing the 1st big marsh. Found the trail just before the 2nd big marsh, stayed on it for a little bit and then set my compass. Now I'm having a black out, pretty sure I attacked 5 from north, but don't understand why I crossed the hill and how I got there from the trail..
6: Straight on
7: Straight on, but veered right and checked out the little marsh SE of the control first
8: Tricky one! Started out okay but lost count of the cliffs and went too far left, corrected.
9: Hmm, cliffs.. wanted to go to the right of the line where it looked "cleaner", afterwards Balter pointed out the trail to the left. But I went straight, down through the cliffs, crossed the 1st stream and the 2nd right below those cliffs, hit the trail, found the trail junction, compass.
10: Straight, noting the trails, contours etc, slow cause I figured this one could be tricky
11: Right side of the line
12: Straight
13: Straight

FR 8.162km

Again not that tired when I finished.

trail run (/ hike) 20:00 [2] 1.5 km (13:20 / km) +150m 8:53 / km

from where the bus dropped us off to the start

orienteering 1:12:43 [3] **** 6.8 km (10:42 / km) +240m 9:05 / km

Car ride up Friday night was not pleasant while the sitting hurts.

I had decided to take it easy and stop if it was hurting. It was uncomfortable with the hunched over type running, under trees etc but otherwise it felt surprisingly okay. Not too many rocks in the terrain. I did take it really easy when sliding down cliffs or if I needed to go across rocky grounds.

So with no pressure, just enjoying the beautiful woods! And where it was nice and runnable I couldn't resist to speed it up!

1: Went a bit to the right of the line
2: Right, to the trail, hard to follow the trail, lost it a couple of times, went to the trail bend between control 3 & 4 and attacked 2 from there. Samantha was just leaving the control as I got there, think she started 5min after me.
3: Before I was ready to head to 3, Sam was way gone
4 & 5: Slow and steady. At 5 I saw Marie-Kat.
6: Marie-Kat & I took different routes. I kind of got lost to the right of the line, couldn't find the trail. But we met up at 6. Off course I was on the wrong side of the control-marsh, didn't check my definition.
7: Took off thinking "this is a tricky one", was moving in the right direction but couldn't locate the green. As I was over shooting the control, going down the hill, I saw Samantha leaving it, still kept going downhill. Made a loop and came back to find it.
8: Went left of the big marsh, checked feautures but stopped too early, took me a while to figure it out.
9: Straight on
10: Right side of the line, crossed the trail and then went a little left of the line, down to the lowest point and just followed the hillside to the control.
11: Downhill, tried to avoid cliffs and rocky grounds. Saw Marie-Kat again.
12: Straight on
13: Followed the trail until hill on the right flattened out and cut across
14: Trail
15: Trail, got off it and crossed two steams, was too high, relocated when I saw the open area (red lined on the map)
16: Down the hill, hesitaded by the trail but went down the reentrant and had to climb up the powerline to the last control. Sigh!

FR 8.443km

So, slow with a lot of stopping, a few mistakes, was able to speed it up when I felt like it. Not really that tired afterwards.

Felt similiar to the terrain back home.

run 5:00 [1] 0.8 km (6:15 / km)

jog from the finish back to the assembly area

run (elliptical) 5:00 [1]

pilates 1:00:00 [2]

Sad last class with Rosalie. I had to hold back my tears when hugging her good bye. She's been great. Two years ago, this group of ladies were some of the first people I got to know in New Haven, so they mean a lot to me.
After class we had all brought in cookies and had a little gathering. I had tried a new recipe "pumpkin/cranberry cookies" which turned out more like scones - they were a hit and so were the "chocolate balls" :)

orienteering 50:52 [2] *** 5.54 km (9:11 / km) +120m 8:17 / km

At Ansonia with Will & Boris. I was at the wrong place looking for my first control, went back to the right place on my way back.
Scared and a bit uncomfortable when running over rocks but felt alright on the soft ground.
