Terrain (Grass) 20:00 [2]


Orienteering race (Woods) 1:30:22 [4] *** 12.6 km (7:10 / km) +480m 6:01 / km

Blue course at Fair Hill/Little Egypt (1:10). Fun course. Lots of hard running (no surprise there). A bit sloppy in traffic. I wasn't so much distracted by other runners' routes but I just didn't read the map as well when others were around. Something like 5 minutes total error, which is a lot for this park. Not sure how my routes were - I'll have to wait for splits to be posted.

Update: Looks like my boom at 9 wasn't nearly as bad as I thought. I only lost 1:45 to the fast split. I was thinking it was more like a 3-4 minute error. Other than that, all the legs look OK, just slightly slower. I guess I'll move this one into the "good" column (although that means accepting that "good" is still a fair piece off the winning time on Blue). Finished 11/28.

Terrain (Grass) 12:00 [2]

Warmup for sprint.

Orienteering race (Woods) 16:01 [4] *** 2.7 km (5:56 / km) +60m 5:20 / km

Sprint at Fair Hill/Sawmill Rd (1:5). Fun little sprint. All woods navigation except for the last couple minutes. Too bad it doesn't count for much because it's probably the best sprint I've run. Good focus and very accurate. Held back on the effort since I'd like to have some legs for tomorrow. Don't know that I could have stayed in contact if I was going any faster anyway.

Update: FInished 6/101. Something to be said for staying clean rather than running all out.
