It appears that some people feel that having Orienteering events on Saturday and Sunday means too much time being self indulgent and not focusing on hearth and home. Therefore I will apply the principle, happy wife, happy life, no meet today.

O-MEET race (Hills and thorns) 2:56:00 [5] *** 6.0 mi (29:20 / mi)
spiked:21/21c slept:6.0 shoes: Salomon Spikecross

Hills and thorns, Need to remember to save my stick number until I get around to buying my own.

Anyway, the good things;

Found all the controls in the time limit.

The bad things;

The long travers, particularly between 10 and 11 cost me at least 20 minutes, I made a huge mistake. I got to 10 no problem but it was down a rocky hill, I hit it and somehow convinced myself it would be better to go along the road to catch a trail I knew skirted around the hill and would drop me on to the road. The route was longer, too long and for some reason I thought it would be easier to catch the trail behind the stable and follow it around, why? I have no idea, in my head that was the path of least resistance. Terrible choice, wasted so much time it really killed my result.

Lessons learned, shortest path first, always.

Read the map, even if I have been there and think I know where I am going, really look at it and make sure I understand the terrain.

Spike shoes, in some sense they are fantastic, going from 17 to 18 I was able to move right up the hill even though it was loose and eroded. on the other hand on rocks the spikes are like walking on ball bearings, on paved surfaces the pikes drive into the bottom of my feet. Leaving 18 I slipped when I stepped on a pile of leaves hiding a large rock outcrop. I'm pretty sure the club frowns on members plunging to their deaths during events so I will try to avoid that in the future.
