Orienteering race (Ultra long) 2:15:29 [3] 14.12 km (9:36 / km) +345m 8:33 / km

ok race... Screwed up 6, lost 2ish minutes. 8 was terrible. Aimed off right, WAY right... I knew where i was, though. But when I went towards 8 I arced around it and hit 9. I thought i was 8, though, because the code for 9 looked like it lined up with 8... Headed off from 9 as if i was going from 8-9. I guess I really just made a VERY bad parallel error... Lost 15 minutes. Then after 10, I was just REALLY slow... Feet hurt a lot and I stated thinking about being done and not about the map, although my navigating was ok...

Orienteering race (Sprint) 15:09 [5] 2.6 km (5:50 / km) +60m 5:13 / km

Awesome race! I felt really good physically and was reading the map well. I coulda saved some time from 10-11 where I took a less direct route and had to make my own path through the field (quite slow...) Really happy with my result, though!

Orienteering race (Middle) 42:25 [3] 5.6 km (7:35 / km)

Cruddy race... Screwed up the first control then on the way to two I thought I was coming from 12 so I started hesitating because nothing was making sense. 4 was a poor route choice (side-hilled too long, shoulda climbed sooner). 6 was dumb, just misread a re entrant. 8 was terrible. Just dumb. I consciously told myself not to take the best route because I thought it was bad.... After that was good except for 15-16 when I got distracted and stopped reading the map...

Running 40:00 [3]

Decided to run up to "the lookout" today. After a few wrong turns we found ourselves on an overgrown trail. Found a junked car, smashed the windshield some more, then kept going up. Eventually we got to "the top". No view. Then we actually found a place that had a nice view and stopped and told jokes. With 10 minutes, and about a mile to go (all downhill) we decided to leave. We took a straightshot (through the woods) towards the school. Found another nice lookout spot and stopped there. with 5 min to go, we realized we needed to get moving. We were going through the woods when all the sudden we encountered a 20m cliff. We decided it would be a good idea to go around it so 3 minutes later, we found ourselves 100m from the first good lookout spot. From there, it took 7 minutes to go a mile and a half. The first mile musta been about 4 min. All downhill, with prickers, and one tree across the trail at waist height. We got back 5 min late.

Running (Strength) 10:00 [3]
