Biking 8:00:00 [4]

Biking San Francisco - since I've never been to San Francisco before I decided to stay an extra day after the team trials and do a little sight seeing. I figured the best way to see the city was to rent a bike and Zan said despite the hills San Francisco is a great city to see by bike. It was a good call cause I was able to see everything I wanted which I never could have done by foot or probably public transit either! I have no idea how far I biked, but I'd say probably some where in the neighborhood of 10-15 miles-plus some pretty crazy hills!

Orienteering race 18:11 [5] *** 2.5 km (7:16 / km) +75m 6:19 / km

Team Trials-Sprint - my sprint was going really well, I was making good route choices and nailing each control with practically no hesitation, until I hit my second to last control. I was right on course, and even starting to pick up speed since I was nearing the end of the race so I don't know whether it was speed or exhaustion or a combination of both, but when I got to the control and checked my cluesheet I misread the code! I was so confused because I could have sworn that I was at the right control, but there was another control hung just another 20m away so I ran to that thinking maybe I hadn't gone far enough and when that code didn't match up I started to panic. I spent well over a minute running around checking the map and being totally baffled by the fact that I couldn't find the control until Angelica caught up to me and ran into the first control I came to and finally I double checked my cluesheet and magically the right code was there that time! Damn! I don't know what happened - clearly I just blacked out or something cause the code that I thought I was looking for all that time wasn't even on my clue sheet, it wasn't even close! (no reading 3s as 8s or confusing 6/9s just a completely random number)

I also wound up over running my last control as well due to trying to make up time/distraction from number 11.
