Orienteering race 1:12:36 [4] *** 8.2 km (8:51 / km)

DVOA Fox Chaser - Red Course - Started out a bit on the hesitant side and stuck to the roads for the first control until I got comfortable with the map. I struggled a bit until Control #3, taking a zig zag route that was not close to direct. After tripping on a fence and banging my knee coming out of #3. I started to settle down. I had some trouble with #14 (came down the steep embankment too far) and #18 (I dropped into the creek bed - light green way too early). I ran fairly clean for the rest of the way and didn't go too hard so I would have some energy for Sunday.

Running 46:53 [3] 5.07 mi (9:15 / mi)
shoes: PI - SyncroFloat

Fleet Feet hill workout - Monroe ave to Cobbs Hill. Normally I wouldn't have run since I was up very early for work and was ready to call it a day - but we already had a sitter set up. Felt pretty bad the entire time. Will take it easy until the weekend.

Orienteering 50:03 [4] *** 6.32 km (7:55 / km)
15c shoes: Mudclaw O+340

Green Course - Mendon Ponds 2005 Icebreaker. This was about the last green course I ran before switching to Red/Blue. I was looking for someplace that was somewhat dry and the east part of MP is usually pretty good. It took me about 6 controls before remembering the course and I wound up finishing 15 minutes faster than 2 years ago. Pace was good but I am not sure what to make of it. The park/course were familiar but there were still a lot of hills. Anyway, it was good to get out before next weeks meet.

Straightline distance was 5.54 km so actual O-pace was more like 9.0 km/minute
