orienteering race 1:34:00 [3] *** 7.12 km (13:12 / km)

Red course at French Creek East. For some reason the climb seemed pretty inconsequential. It was 210 m but I mostly felt I had to force myself to go downhill - odd feeling. And there were route choices that kept you out of most of the rock - very nice course design. And though my time is pretty slow compared to others, I felt like I ran more than usual in the woods. I'll be curious to compare splits when I get around to entering them.

orienteering race 26:37 [4] 2.67 km (9:58 / km) +45m 9:12 / km

Sprint course at Green Lane. Was having a reasonably decent run, moving okay, a couple bits of sloppiness but not too bad, and then I went brain dead and totally botched #17. I made a silly route choice, and then didn't execute it. The funny thing is that I was so set on doing what I had originally intended to do that I couldn't capitalize on my error and just use a different route when I saw where I was, one which would have in fact been much better. At a slower pace I would easily have corrected so I guess I was pushing it more than I realized.

A fun day. Got lucky with the weather - not 5 minutes after putting away the computer (for epunching), it rained really hard for a few minutes. It had been complete sunshine, no clouds at all, all morning long and so I hadn't given a thought to things getting rained on.

orienteering 3:00:00 [1]

Field checking at the Water Gap. Sprints are more like really, really, really short courses with lots of controls. Hope people enjoy them.
