Orienteering 1:39:00 [3] 4.4 km (22:30 / km)

I walked the Brown course with Jennifer Laughlin to help her get acclimated to East coast orienteering. I think it's quite different from Houston!

As we walked along, she would say how she would take the next control and then I would suggest a few options. We talked about aiming off and catching features, and a few other tools. I had a good time...I hope she found it helpful.

Also, Jennifer and Jordan have been a godsend when it comes to OUSA's technology. I thought I knew some stuff, but they blow me away. They stepped up and volunteered to take on cleaning up all of the systems we use, move our website to an easier to use platform that doesn't require hiring a contractor to maintain it, get us on more secure servers that are cheaper, and so much more. And...all of this is volunteer work. OUSA is saving money and getting a better tech environment. Honestly, all of the volunteers in OUSA are so incredible!

Running 33:28 [3]

Running Group. We did "cut downs" where we ran 1200m at threshold pace, 800m a little faster, and then 400m even faster. And, again, we ran in the direction where there's a hill at the start of the run.

The first two parts felt fine, but at the top of the hill on the 400m, I felt it in my quads, big time. Probably was a bit too much after the races this weekend, but I was glad I got out.

Orienteering 1:08:25 [3] 6.32 km (10:49 / km) +113m 9:56 / km

Jr. Nationals Day 2.

Another great day. I made a less than stellar route choice to #10 -- I got flustered going through the spectator control in the field. I also missed #11 by a bit...I was on the wrong side of the dark green clumps, so I didn't see the control until after I passed it and looked back.
