Orienteering race (US Champs Red 1) 1:53:24 [4] *** 8.7 km (13:02 / km) +130m 12:08 / km
spiked:5/10c shoes: 340 ORoc A

Running trails has made me soft. The soft and often wet ground underfoot was really tough to run for me. Also I haven't run on a 1:15,000 scale map in a long while and my old eyes have a real tough time reading the fine detail. Generally had to come to a complete stop numerous times during a leg to remove glasses and consult map.

Never found trail headed towards #2 but got there without too much time lost. Was a bit low on #3, but hit trail and bounced back pretty quickly. Got off to the R on #4 and wandered down the spur to the N before figuring out that it went on too long- still struggling with scale issues. #6 was pretty straightforward but a slow jog up the hill. Missed #7 a tad low and wound up searching a reentrant a bit further W. #8 was a long, slow leg, couldn't match up stone walls at all (same area Anna failed to find orange #4) and was uncertain of my position once out on dirt road. Even at a complete stop studying the map I wasn't 100% confident. Struck off into the woods at a cautious pace and eventually hit the control without searching, but was a very hesitant, uncertain approach. Straightline but slow to #9, then bailed to road to go around to the last control. No major booms, but terrain speed and ability to read a 15k map contributed to a very slow overall pace and finished well down the list.

decided not to race it hard tonight with a week of O on tap. Even still, managed to stay in top 10 through the turnaround, then let some folks go by on the way back up. Kind of nice to just cruise at a hard pace without feeling the need to catch anyone or hold anyone off. Will get official time/place later when results post. (16:21, 16th place, 1 pt)

An article & photos from last weeks race came out in the Reminder this week:

Headed to NH this AM for work. Don't plan on getting a run in, so we'll call it a rest day. Not sure how that differs from most other days lately though.

Run - Trail (Bald Mountain Loop) 1:40:00 [3] 8.25 mi (12:07 / mi)
weight:166.4lbs shoes: old 285 Roclite A

Early AM group run - Ginny, Regina, Dave S, Ken, Matt, Norm, Dom & I headed off for an easy sojourn to Bald Mtn and surrounding area. Light showers at the start and very thick humidity. Nice run, but a hellatious number of FHF's today, a few FDF's mixed in the but the big boys were out in force. My back is covered in a nice array of red welts - thankfully they don't hurt or itch, but it ain't pretty...
