Orienteering race (Middle distance A day) 1:25:59 [4] *** 5.01 km (17:10 / km)
spiked:11/14c shoes: Jala Jukola Spider 6 #2

Green day 3 on First With The Most map (1:10000). Messed up control 2 by a lot, wandering around in other rock with other orienteers (rule #67, ignore all other orienteers in the area!) until realizing that bag #44 that I found was actually on my course, only much later (control 13). Used it to relocate.

Messed up control 10 a little (again, I let other orienteers in the area distract me), and could have used a better route choice to control 6 (I went around the west end of the darker green, not taking a chance with the sliver of light green closer to the beeline, but it worked well for others). Total time lost ~15:00...which would have put me in 4th place, F50, but I finished 6th out of 8.

Walking 1:20:00 [2] 3.5 mi (22:51 / mi)
shoes: Trail NB 706 9D # 1

Turtle Rock trail (3 miles, circling the large rock formation) at Vedauwoo, counterclockwise this time. I think it's physically easier in this direction. The rock-pile figure we took a picture of earlier in the week was gone from the bare rock outcrop. We started earlier in the day and avoided the rain shower (and hail!) that came through around 3pm. Took a wrong turn near the end of the trail, adding 0.5mi.

Orienteering race (Relay leg 3) 1:21:00 [5] *** 4.9 km (16:32 / km)
spiked:16/17c shoes: Jala Jukola Spider 6 (old)

Relay at Antenna Hill. Leg 3 for the EMPO team of Phil, Sue, me and Marty (Glen wasn't feeling up to it due to reaggravating his rib/side injury). Covered closer to 6 km with contouring.

Only missed control (#12) was when I contoured around a hill, a little lower than I should have, and punched at a different one; but I corrected and punched the right one which was a little further around.

Orienteering race (Sprint) 48:23 [5] 2.9 km (16:41 / km)
shoes: Jala Jukola Spider 6 #2

Gates of AMT Hell map. Messed up 3 of the sprint controls (1, 4, & 6) for about 9-10 minutes of errors. :-P I wonder how many sprint points I got for that one...

Monday Aug 14, 2006 #

Walking 1:45:50 [2] 4.4 mi (24:03 / mi)
shoes: Trail NB 706 9D # 1

Hike on Meadow Falls trail in Snowy Mtn. Range, accessed from the Silver Lake parking area. Hiking at ~10,000 ft, so I could really feel any uphills. The Falls themselves are probably a bit more dramatic earlier in the year (with snowmelt); it was more like a stream trickle now.

I put intensity 2 because even though at least half the hike was intensity 1, the uphills felt like 4 or 5! Took an hour-long nap when we got back to the hotel; need to be (somewhat) fresh for the Night-O Champs tonight.

Orienteering race (Night-O) 1:37:12 [3] *** 5.1 km (19:04 / km)
spiked:8/10c shoes: Jala Jukola Spider 6 (old)

US Night-O champs. Finished 2nd of 4(?).

Missed #5 off to the east (hit the spur too low and turned the wrong way...), #7 (hit the reentrant to the east but wasn't sure which wooded reentrant it was). Route choice to #9 was sure and steady (via #3) but south through the clearing to the open spur just south of #1 looks like a better/faster route.

Orienteering race (RM1000Day -- WSC#2) 1:26:22 [4] *** 5.5 km (15:42 / km) +200m 13:17 / km
spiked:12/14c shoes: Jala Jukola Spider 6 #2

A fine run through #5, then I messed up my plan for #6 and lost at least 5 minutes. Again on #7, I wound up in the right reentrant but turned left instead of right and took awhile to find myself. From there on in I executed okay. 4th out of 5 (or 6?)overall for F50.

Walking 1:30:00 [1] 3.0 mi (30:00 / mi)
shoes: Saucony Shadow 6000 8.5 #2

Hiked the Turtle Rock trail at Vedauwoo (it loops around the large rock outcrops). Nice and sunny when we started; gray clouds rolled in when we were halfway around, and rain started falling when we were 3/4's.... So we got a little damp, and cut through the parking area to get back to the car.

Orienteering race (RM1000Day -- WS Champs) 1:21:38 [4] *** 5.32 km (15:21 / km) +230m 12:37 / km
spiked:9/11c shoes: Jala Jukola Spider 6 (old)

The starter missed telling us to start for about 20 seconds, so I've listed what was on my watch rather than the 1:22:00 in the official race list. Protesting wouldn't change my placement today (hope it doesn't affect things later in the week; probably not).

Slightly off the left on #2 (I saw the bag but thought my control was in the next reentrant along, then thought better of that thought; lost about 20 seconds). Took the left-then-center route to #9 but misread reentrants during the 8 contour climb and had to re-find myself at the top; lost about 3-4 minutes?). Nice area! 4th of 6 F50.

Cool and windy today with some showers.

Orienteering race (RM1000Day Prologue) 32:47 [4] *** 2.52 km (13:01 / km)
spiked:8/10c shoes: Jala Jukola Spider 6 #2

I was off to the right on 1 and 2; about 40 sec error. Otherwise clean run.

Sunny and hot (but dry!).

Orienteering race (RM1000Day Chase) 46:26 [3] *** 3.5 km (13:16 / km)
spiked:8/8c shoes: Jala Jukola Spider 6 #2

Since it was advertised at 6.5k+ I decided to only run the first part and stop where it looped back close to the finish. Distance is estimated; the second loop was slightly shorter. No problems but didn't push the pace, knowing Saturday was an A-meet day.

Still hot and very sunny.
