Event: West Point

Orienteering race 1:30:00 [4]

West Point, day 1. Blue 9.3 km, 90 mins, 5th. As first starter on a misty day, it was eerily quiet in the forest. Felt slow through the terrain, and made quite a few errors for 1-2 minutes each, then ran off the map on 10, hitting a road and getting very confused (7 minutes). Still, very enjoyable. It seems like everyone else struggled too - finished 5th, 11 minutes down on Mike W.

Orienteering race 22:00 [4]

Sprint-O around Camp Buckner. A fun and varied course, partly around the buildings, then some real, technical forest-O and a brutal hill towards the end. A stupid bobble for 1 minute on #3 (ran at the right featue, but didn't see the flag tucked away, and went walkabout for a while). That's too much time to lose on a sprint. 2.9 km/22 min/ 9th, about 2 mins down.


Trail-O champs. A pretty good run. Didn't seem like anyone else was running, though :).

Run (off-road) 55:00 [2]

Chip Ross with the ORCA pod (Larry, Ben, George, Tim). Larry showed us all that the best way to get fit is not to run for 6 months. He put the pedal to the metal going up Lower Horse. Ben and George barely kept up, Tim huffed and puffed, and I was thoroughly dropped. Got revenge later by taking them prancing through the poison oak. He he! Came across 5 vultures gorging on a deer at the end of the run. It was probably some sort of an omen.

Run (off-road) 49:00 [2]

Met the bikers at Oak Creek, planning to do a terrain run through the woods. Soon realised the folly of that, as I picked my way through the glistening poison oak! Still, ran the trails in O-shoes, then home to soak in a vat of technu ;).

Easy run around Bald Hill with Tim.

XC ski (skate) 1:00:00 [2]

Mt Bachelor Trails. They're closed for the season, but fortunately Zigzag was groomed for a clinic. It had snowed 6" of sloppy snow, so was impossible to ski anywhere else. With conditions being so slow, I struggled. One of the coaches gave me a few pointers, and things improved on the second lap.

Downhill ski (telemark) 10:00 [1]

A couple of runs on the lifts between skate loops. Took it easy, as this was knee-wrecking snow - very heavy powder. Nice views of Broken Top through the swirling clouds.

Orienteering (mapping)

A frustrating 4 hours working on the Ice Cave map. The USGS base just doesn't have enough contours in one area, and the only way I can see to fix it is to invent a contour then hide its end in a cliff - and that's just not cool :).
