Running 15:00 [2]

Orienteering race 1:21:07 [4] 12.8 km (6:20 / km) +370m 5:32 / km
shoes: VJ Supra 2014-1

US Classic Champs Day 1

Underwhelming performance from me, both technically and physically. Not enough respect for the terrain in my brain, and not enough oxygen in my lungs. Mikell, Sergei, and Matt were impressive today. No way could I be in the same league.

Running 30:00 [2] 6.0 km (5:00 / km)
shoes: Yellow mizunos

A run around Garden of the Gods with Ian. We had a nice chat. I felt very sluggish, probably due to jetlag, travel, and the hives I broke out in overnight.

US Classic Champs model event at Round Mountain. Alli and I went around together and looked at the mapping details. The terrain is so much faster than Slovenia! It will be an interesting transition and a fun weekend of racing.

Orienteering race 58:48 [4] 6.3 km (9:20 / km)

OO Cup Day 5

Much simpler terrain this time, pretty open. I had an ok run, but had no power on the uphills. Neil had a really good race to finish the week well. I ended up 21st overall, Neil 22nd.

Really fun two weeks of orienteering and hanging out with great people. Slovenia is an awesome country with beautiful nature and friendly people. I would recommend it to anyone for a great orienteering vacation!

OO Cup Day 4

Beautiful, detailed terrain, very tough running. I didn't have it today - never really got into racing mode and didn't navigate well, either.

OO Cup Day 3

Middle distance, my friend! We had a short race in a small, technical area with lots of trails and depressions. It was hot and humid at the start, and I tried to stick to the shade as much as possible before starting.

The race went well - the best I've felt racing this year, I think. I am still not fit enough even for just a full middle distance race, but I am getting better. We had 21 controls for 3.7km, so this was mostly control picking, and I had to be careful with direction leaving controls and detail in the circle in order to keep good flow. I took a number of trail routes to simplify the attack, and that paid off. I made a couple of mistakes in the green in the middle of the course (30 and 15 seconds), but finished well and ended up 15th on the day, better than 29th and 22nd the first two days. I moved up to 19the overall from 24th.
