Running warm up/down 2:12 [3] 0.22 mi (10:00 / mi) +4m 9:28 / mi

Quick warm-up before going out on blue.

Orienteering race 1:45:22 [4] 6.56 mi (16:04 / mi) +297m 14:05 / mi

Ali, Brendan and I went up to Nottingcook Forest to do some orienteering. The meet was organized by Bob Lux and UNO.

I first went out on the blue course. I did pretty well orienteering wise, but I was tiring at the end. Ali caught up with me to 12, and I was happy to be able to keep up with her for the next 6 controls. We were still orienteering on our own, with a mix of who found the control first.

1: Stopping too early. There were plenty of suttle hills before the right one that confused me, but I realized in the end that I need to continue until I can see the drop-off after the last hill.
3: Not doing any mistakes, but the uphill was too much and I walked most of it.
4: Started by trying to avoid the hill side, and ended up going the trail around.
17: Getting tired, I went the path around. Surprisingly, I got there faster than Ali going straight.
20: Too far down on the spur. I think the control was a little bit higher up than it should have been.

Pretty happy with the outing. It was a fun map and course.

It was also great to beat my nemisis JJ by 6 minutes.

Orienteering 20:40 [4] 1.88 mi (10:59 / mi) +24m 10:34 / mi

Ali wasn't sufficiently tired after the blue course, so she was heading out on the yellow one. Somehow, I thought that was a good idea as well and I went out 2 minutes before her, adding the extra motivation of trying to keep her from catching up to me for as long as possible.

Control 3 was in the incorrect location, but it was set really visibly so I could see it from the right spot. It is shown clear on the QR, with the control being hung at the turn around point on the track to the left.
