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.
