Orienteering 2:29:55 5.8 mi (25:51 / mi) +74m 24:52 / mi
ahr:132 max:211 spiked:23/24c shoes: Inov8 Roclite 319

Day of flags. Someone stole one of the water jugs. I did eventually find it. Popular spot, those cairns on yellow.

McDonald's drive through was, like, seriously 20 minutes, which put me a bit behind, and then the gate was locked so I chased down the ranger to ask about it, and he said he'd get to it after a few more things, but that was a 10 minute detour (well that and grabbing the game cam for the boulder control), so about half an hour behind which would show up later as I was still in unusually scruffy attire at the start, and also I forgot to drink anything for about 5 hours which didn't feel great.

Looks like people had fun. 54 starts which is slightly below target of 75-100, but the 20 person lesson was not reflected wholly in that count and was a nice attendance bump.

Hanging the west flags w/ BNM, good times as always. Tweaked a few for maximum enjoyment.

Voting for the Pig to be April 7-9 rather than 31-2, so I can go.

12 PM

Running 7:41 0.74 mi (10:23 / mi) +12m 9:53 / mi
ahr:147 max:159

warming up, because corn mazes are serious business. As much as Coop wants the night owl, I want a corn maze win.

Orienteering 40:19 3.59 mi (11:14 / mi) +6m 11:10 / mi
ahr:169 max:222 15c

I had a good, mostly clean run. A few inevitable bobbles, and perhaps one or two less efficient routes.

If you want to win and are at my level, I think you'd be best off to measure and mentally mark off a set of halfway points, so you know whether to go cw or ccw on the tricky legs.

Got pretty winded at 2.5 miles, took a leisurely break to pass a family and catch my breath. Otherwise okay.

Super fun event, and great weather

Orienteering 13:39 1.49 mi (9:10 / mi) +6m 9:03 / mi
ahr:165 max:178

Corn maze sprint! I tried to drop the hammer, but didn't have the top end on the straights. Two minor mistakes, and a couple less efficient routes, on the whole okay I think.
6 PM

Walking 53:20 3.29 mi (16:14 / mi) +2m 16:12 / mi
ahr:108 max:158

Wife hoped for another Turtle prep jog, so we took the dogs around the block and then 1600 m easy, 400 rest, 800 easy, 400 rest. I will ice later as a precaution.
