Orienteering race 2:06:32 [4] 8.09 mi (15:38 / mi) +787m 12:01 / mi
shoes: Solomon Speedcross - Green

Flying Pig - Long - Red

So many hills. The route choice for this course was great! Not happy with how long it took me to select routes, I was so indecisive. And I definitely picked some poor routes even after all the deliberation.

1-4 were clean and it felt like I was moving pretty well. Went around on the road to 4. I think it was faster to take the creek - I didn't realize how open it was down there. On the way to 5 I took the creek and climbed up a ridiculously steep hill. I must have been in the circle when I decided I was too far S. Wandered for a bit. Then saw Igor punch, right where I had come up the hill in the first place...

Fine to 6 and then the next few didn't go so well. Decided to get to 7 I would climb all the way up a huge hill and then all the way back down instead of taking a nice flat road....what was I thinking? Went slightly too far down the spur and had to backtrack to grab 7. And then nothing like making the same mistake twice in a row. Did the exact same thing headed down the spur to 8. Looked at the map and thought 9 was on a hill. Great, I can just run that general direction and I'll see it! But it was actually in a reentrant...went up one too early and then hit the correct one. Smooth sailing after that.

All of my mistakes were minor, I always knew roughly where I was, but there were more than I'd like. Tough course - those hills were huge.

Orienteering race 1:39:41 [4] 6.74 mi (14:47 / mi) +87m 14:13 / mi
shoes: Solomon Speedcross - Green

Flying Pig - Night Champs - Red

Started off cautious after all the warnings of how difficult the middle was earlier. Small error on 3, cut in too far E. 4 was my favorite control. It was in a little room in the side of a hill, kind of creepy at night though. Exited 4 and didn't realize there was an uncrossable fence to the S. Slow going as I bashed around it. I then cut in to 5, but didn't hit it on and couldn't quite figure out what was going on with the map. Wandered for a bit.

Went pretty smoothly after that, just had to get warmed up I guess. So wet on the way to 10. Overshot 15 and hit the depression just N of the flag. It also had a flag. Turned around and hit 15 right on, I must have walked right by it on my way through. Saw W4J at 18. Then saw Brenda and Joe after 19. One more small error to 20. There was more green than I expected and I hit the water hole to the E before correcting. Fun finish zooming around the open area. Fun course! Legs felt good and pretty happy with my navigation.

So nice out! I was worried the dirt roads would be wet, but they were great - only a few puddles here and there. Way overdressed, had to pause after a few miles to take off my jacket.

KFish didn't want to go back inside, so we went for a short trot.
