Orienteering 58:28 [3] ** 8.0 km (7:19 / km)
spiked:20/22c shoes: X-Talon 212

A very long sprint course. Felt much more on top of things today, went much better, but very easy technically speaking. A runners course for certain. A runner I am not. A few route choices involving going around lakes and one involviving going around or through green. I went through it. Took south side of lake on way to 22, but I think north side may have been faster. A couple mud bogs. Wouldn't be flying pig without those. First one to start. Aiden passed me towards the end, but I don't feel too bad about that since he's probably going to win WOC some day.

Warm up run

Orienteering 49:32 [3] *** 5.9 km (8:24 / km) +200m 7:11 / km
shoes: Icebug

By the time I got to the 1st control I had already considered just walking back to my car and driving off. Totally blew the 1st 2 or 3 controls. Almost 7 min's to find the 1st one, seriously!!? After that it got better and more normal, but w/ my motivation totally sapped from doing so horribly on the first few I didn't really have much drive for the rest.

I think my mistake was letting the vegetation veer me off of my plan combined with trying to run without slowing down to make sure I was following exactly where I was going. That led to my disorientation winding up near #5 instead of #1, and on way to #2 I was very, very sloppy too.

My only solace is tomorrow is another day and another race. But definitely not happy w/ this debacle today.

Orienteering 32:00 [3] *** 4.1 km (7:48 / km) +10m 7:43 / km
spiked:9/10c shoes: Asics

Ran & field checked the Baldwin Gulch Permanent courses for RMOC. Everything still in good shape except the control under the bridge is just standing upright held by rocks. Plus mapping update needed. Felt really sluggish and tired today. Not sure why, had 9 hrs of sleep last night!

CY18 control goal count = 362

spiked:10/13c shoes: Asics

Old map and Red course from Palmer Park. Wow! That was deceiving. Looked like just another normal front-range-type park, and only 13 controls, so I though, eh, probably 45 min's or so. WRONG! Quite rugged and technical in places and lots of climb, let alone higher elevation too, so a pretty good workout. Since I was using an old map I had to stop a lot and figure out what was going on, but still pretty workable especially if I ignored trails, roads, etc. Pretty big park too. Very nice, surprised we haven't done an event here for so long. Although the vegetation fight can be pretty annoying in places and a lot has grown since the last RMOC event here. Beautiful day for it.
