Orienteering Meet race 1:16:54 [5] *** 3.9 km (19:43 / km) +110m 17:17 / km
ahr:147 max:177 shoes: Ice Bug 1

Middle distance North American Champs or chumps for me. Could be one of the worst meets I have run in years. Started out taking a trail around to no.1 and then could not read the map very clearly for most of the rest of the meet. Actually no 6 and 8 really bad, had to relocate big time 22 min control.
So put this one away and move on to the next meet.

Orienteering Related 1:30:00 [3] *** 6.0 km (15:00 / km)

Training map 4 polebrook mt. The training was intervals meaning you went to start And did either 3 or 4 controls and then go to another start. Well Harriman can chew you up and spit you out. I messed up 6 of 30 controls, losing a bit of confidence and a pair of pants getting ripped up. But there were some good navigation spots and some poor. It really is the way I read the map of course. Perfect weather today and the colors seem to be getting better in just the short time here. Chris and I found a great place to camp out .

Westmoreland Sanctuary training map 9. This was an awesome map and cool course. First mistake was being at 16 and thinking I was at 17 going to 18 woops. Then looking fro 17, I run into Chris who started 3 min before me. 17 seemed to be missing tape. Then my other big flounder was trying to be tricky on 20 and losing 5-6 minutes and having to relocate.
Overall a very nice day after pouring rain yesterday.

Training on the Blue Mountain map. Seemed like a bit less rock than yesterday and really nice area for O. We did 13 controls on the 12.4 k course. Slow walking with a bit of jogging and only one big mistake early that I had to relocated on.

Orienteering Related 1:32:00 [3] *** 5.4 km (17:02 / km) +240m 13:56 / km
ahr:130 max:161 spiked:9/10c

Round two at Blue Mountain, to finish the 12.4 K course. Chris and I decided to kind of stay together and meet at each control. Good thing we did since Chris needed lots of help on our 2nd control...started raining and things got slippery in my trail shoes. So 3.5 hours on blue mountain today and now it continues to pour rain out. So we pass time at a nice pub and diner drinking IPA's and nice atlantic salmon here in Cold Spring NY.

Training event in Harriman. There were 30 controls with an average of 300 meters apart. This was some tough orienteering training. This is such a tough area compared to everywhere else in the US.

Orienteering Meet race 1:33:56 [4] *** 6.4 km (14:41 / km) +250m 12:17 / km
ahr:133 max:168 spiked:7/10c shoes: Ice Bug 1

HVO local meet At Ward Pond somewhere in NY. I ran the red course from some major championship from 1993??
It was a great course, but I was not so great. I missed the first one low trying to get into the map. Lots of climb and No 2-8 were good. Then came 9 and I missed the easy trail to turn into towards the control. 10 was easy, but I miss read trails getting to the finish losing about 5 minutes. Great weather and it's time to get into the rocky terrain of eastern orienteering.
