Up at 6:30ish and out the door while Sylvia and Tom stayed in our AirBnB. Headed out to Lava Butte to train the motala as o-tervals. Ok, but my compass work is definitely not spot on. It's not that hard to run straight in these woods (lots of low brush you have to dodge, but nothing un-get-through-able), so I should have been able to do better.

Bend mini-training camp! I missed last year's smoky Deschutes Daze since it was the weekend I was due with Sylvia, so figured I could run the courses now for some good training!
This was the red sprint at COCC. Felt pretty good, but it's very different than either the qual or final will be in Riga - very hilly, at altitude, college campus with sparse high-desert woods. But at least good training to push it and be on a sprint map!

And Red course at Witch of Many Boulders (Dutchman Flats - lower). Good to be running through the woods - not too thick, but in places lots of fallen logs to skip-hop over. Controls weren't set to trickily, so easy to be sure I was at the right place always.
