Orienteering race (Red M-20 8.1KM) 2:05:08 [5] 8.1 km (15:27 / km)
shoes: Speed cross 3

Look. I'm not proud of this. I wanted to hit this course under two hours a failed by a little bit. What killed me was a 1308 point 3, and a 2145 point 12, and a 1021 point 16. If these went better I could of shaved off 15 minutes which would of brought me around 1 hr 50 mins. A LOT of climb which tired me out for sure. By halfway I was dead. I need to work hills and get in overall better shape. My biggest navigational errors are parellel, so working these is a necessity. Second best go control tho so that's what matters.

Orienteering tempo (Team O Place and Find) 1:00:00 [4]
shoes: Speed cross 3

Me and Riley teamed up. There was 9 spots where one person would run and place and O bag and then come back. The partner would then run to the spot where they placed it on the map and go and put it on the second point and then come back. This occurred for all 9 points. Meanwhile each member was doing 150 push ups, air squats, and crunches while they waited for their partner to finish.

Orienteering (Woods run and workout ) 1:00:00 [3]
shoes: Speed cross 3

Ran through the woods at a pretty fast pace - would estimate 6:40 pace for about 35 minutes. Then we stopped and swam at a pond and got into abs. We did 26 ab workouts for 30 seconds each for a total of 13 minutes. I got a PT test coming up so I need to work abs and push ups more.

Orienteering (Course practice ) 50:00 [3]
shoes: Speed cross 3

We ran through an 8 point practice course set up by the legend will himself. There was limited underbrush and lots of climb. Very fun course in perfect weather and tempature. After the brutal experience of this weekend this course felt like a white. Good day and good practice.

Orienteering race (Red - 7.9Km) 2:50:32 [4] 7.9 km (21:35 / km)
shoes: Speed cross 3

Pretty bad day, but I finished in the time limit. point 3-4 took me 16.27, point 4-5 too me 29.33, and point 8-9 took me 38.17. Point 5 I don't believe was in the right point. After searching for about 30 minutes I discovered a group of 6 people also looking for the point, and everyone agreed they didn't think the point was in the correct spot. Point 9 I made several parallel errors in where I thought I was on a different trail or swamp than I really was. All and all I'm pretty disappointed in myself but I am just getting back into Orienteering. And I still beat a few guys on my team. Goal for next week race. Red course in 2 hours.
