Orienteering race 30:35 [4] *** 2.6 km (11:46 / km) +60m 10:33 / km
spiked:9/17c shoes: Integrator

Best way to sum this experience up is not-quite-ready. I was set for a late start after working the finish for a while, but in order to be available for the YNN videographer, I ran just before the event was to start.

It was the right decision, but it left me not quite prepared mentally. Too many errors to note, though the one thing I realized well into it was that the flags were mostly hanging at ground level, and my "spot the flag" technique doesn't quite account for that.

I felt good about a few of the controls, and was happy with some of the decision making, but not overall.

Orienteering race 54:20 [5] *** 4.6 km (11:49 / km) +220m 9:32 / km
spiked:14/17c shoes: Integrator

Much better outing on the middle distance event. Five minutes lost on control 6, and I'm not in love with that bit of map...-) Since I was later, there wasn't a lot of activity around it that might have helped.

Bobble at 10 as I lost focus.

Thought I picked a good line (around the meadow hill to the right) to 15, but then popped into the field for 16 at a spot slightly off form where I was - lost a 20-30 seconds there.

Felt much better about it overall.

Exercises 30:00 [3]

Was able to get out on the water and try a bit of windsurfing again with my brother's equipment. Fun, and tiring.

Morning Run (pavement) 14:53 [4] 1.9 mi (7:50 / mi) +20m 7:35 / mi
shoes: New Balance 479 - V2

So this might be my last run before the weekend, and it felt like a good comfortable 2 mile pace. Too bad it's a bit slow. I can push faster, but think I've done better lately by easing back on the running and not making errors... (and I do seem to find new ways to make big errors and learn lessons at A meets) 6:48 / 1:01 / 7:04

Morning Run (pavement) 15:18 [3] 1.9 mi (8:03 / mi) +20m 7:48 / mi
shoes: New Balance 479 - V2

Short run to keep loose for the weekend. Legs felt good. 7:02 / 1:03 / 7:13
