Orienteering 59:29 [4] 7.9 km (7:32 / km) +320m 6:16 / km

QOC Pohick Bay Blue - I left some time out there with small errors, notably on 2,6,13 and 14. 6 is the most aggravating one - I should have figured out I needed to look up higher than the steep-sided part of the reentrant much sooner plus my route choice was poor - I should have stayed high longer and attacked from the trail to the southwest rather than descending into the reentrant below the control unnecessarily.

Dan ran white and yellow again, the former in about 22 minutes, the latter in somewhat over an hour (she thinks 40 minutes if she hadn't lost a lot of time on her second and third controls, partly due to getting ambitious and trying to go straight through the woods). Apparently, I'll be asked next time to go into compass technique beyond the basics of orienting the map which was all I showed her before she started at Bowie.
