Orienteering race 4:45:00 
(Time is approximate.)
Isabel and I set out to do the Highlander but decided, while we were going round the lake on the longer trail run, to drop down to the Lowlander. The last map was shorter than I thought it would be, so we got off lightly - and that was quite pleasurable, actually.
The first map was a lot of fun. We had a bit of thrashing finding the first control, in the sudden rush of the start, and while there were still other people in the vicinity. But after that we settled in, and it was lovely. I was going a little fast for Isabel to keep up the whole time on the map, but she was often on the map. We did A, C, D, G; I am looking forward to getting the map in order to go over it with her. Most of the way through the trail run, we stopped for chocolate and pita chips. Isabel led us through the last map. That she was up for doing the navigation on the last map speaks well of her physical condition; she'd already done the equivalent of a billygoat at that point.
It was a very nice time! Mind you, Isabel said she would never do it again and there were a few moments of snappishness. But she was moving steadily, and we had some fun conversation along the way.
Some of our route choices were for ease of navigation or travel. Going to A, we met up with a large dog, and Isabel froze; we had trouble getting past that party. We went to the top of the hill for a straight shot down the hill. A to C, we stayed low and to the left of the purple line, climbing gradually in lovely open woods to the large trail, and taking a bearing off of the trail intersection. To D, we climbed the steep hill, then headed along the top of the hill and down between the two spurs. Then to G we started off with the idea of staying high along the series of hills and broad ridge, but changed our plan at the first big hilltop, about 300m from D, to take a lefter line along nice open fairly rock-free area to a trail, then along the trail to the end of the green, and right to the control. Sandy was around. Izzy and I decided to get to the big trail bordered by yellow, and go past the big curve to the right, to get past the green, and then turn left and go along the green to the control. That's where Sandy helped us at the end; she was approaching from the higher side.
It felt easy to stay on the map, with just that bobble at #1, and some uncertainty where we met up with Sandy.
