Orienteering race 1:38:25 [3] *** 5.5 km (17:54 / km)
25c shoes: Icebug olx 2nd

UNO College Woods Red (Sprint 1+Sprint 2). Crikeys, what a lousy navigator I am. A bunch of bad legs and one really terrible one (in which enough time went by that I forgot which control I was going to). I'm having a lot of trouble matching up the terrain to the map. If I go slow enough, I can mostly keep my position, but all is lost if I try to run. In the areas of intricate small detail, I can't see the difference between mapped and unmapped hills, knolls, rocks, and reentrants, so it's all just kind of guesswork. Go slow enough and I can correct, but not going fast.

The SW part of the map across the river was a lot easier -- not so many features packed together, so when I saw one I knew what it was.

The forest was pleasant. I imagine it's going to green up a lot in the next month.

Kayaking 50:00 [1] 3.0 mi (16:40 / mi)

Late in the afternoon out on the river. A tandem kayak on the way out and a canoe (the pair looking highly disciplined) going the other way. Plus some fishermen on the bank near the put-in.
