Last WCOC meet of the year... I am sad that I missed some their best terrain this year, but perhaps there will be other opportunities in the future. I basically did what I wanted to do today: I wanted to run slow and really treat this meet as training (how I should treat all local meets). This has been a problem for me... I get caught up in the race and my competitiveness grabs me and I run too fast, get tired, and make too many mistakes. I was pleased that my mindset has changed (for the moment).
I only had a couple of small errors in the circle and other than that I was pretty clean. My compass seems to be getting a bit better, although I am not nearly as comfortable using it as I should be. I am glad that I will not be too tired for running next week.
Orienteering (Control Pickup) 30:00 
shoes: Da Integrators
I went out with a nice fellow who just moved to RI and was getting back into orienteering after a 6 yr absence. We walked around and picked up a bunch of controls on the flatter part of the map. I was probably out for about an hour and 15 minutes but I will claim 30 min of training.
The pick up was so low in intensity that I don't think it will have an adverse effect on my training next week.
