8 AM

Orienteering race (urban sprint) 27:23 [5] *** 3.19 km (8:36 / km) +1m 8:34 / km
ahr:142 max:155 spiked:17/17c slept:6.0 shoes: Sauc TriumphISO-silver/gr/blue

Sprint in downtown Columbus IN. Very fun course. Had to take a couple of walking breaks to catch my breath but kept on moving otherwise. It's going to be a challenge to keep up the pace in the second sprint.
10 AM

Orienteering race (park sprint) 23:48 [5] *** 2.49 km (9:33 / km) +4m 9:28 / km
ahr:145 max:159 spiked:14/14c shoes: Inov8 ORoc280-A 2013-08

Second sprint of the morning, about 2-1/2 hours after the first, from the Mill Race Community Center (we walked about a km north to start and then ran through the long, narrow park along the river that is the western border of town).

AP shows an "error" on 12 which was basically a flat run to a culvert (cave). Like the run-in, it's more a function of the speed I don't have for straight running.

added: Between the two races, Lex B won one and I won one; she beat me overall by 17 seconds.

Flying Pig Long at Yellowwood SP near Bloomington, IN. 3.8 km and 200m nominal climb. A very nice day with lots of sun and temps in the 60s.

Navigation good...except for one control (#2) which was a comedy of errors. I was distracted leaving the first control by Walt Lyons who headed down a trail I thought was correct, until it didn't look right and I realized we were headed 90 degrees off course. I had passed him, so when I turned around I mentioned we were headed in the wrong direction. He managed to get the rest of the navigation to 2 right after that, and finished 10 minutes ahead of me. Once I got in the valley I headed up the wrong creek bed and ended up much closer to 5, though I never saw it until later. Decided to head west to the trail west of #2 (still thinking I was close)...and ended up on the next trail north which drops into a valley with a steep bank on the opposite side. That's when I finally knew where I was, and I was able to get back to 2 okay.

Just a slog from there, especially on the uphills. I messed up the fine negation between 8 and 9 and added some distance but knew where I was. I'll try to do better at the sprints tomorrow. Ended up 7th of 7 in F60.

Going to this

9 PM

Orienteering race 1:20:27 [4] **** 5.38 km (14:58 / km) +35m 14:30 / km
spiked:11/14c shoes: Inov8 ORoc280-B 2013-10

Night O champs Brown. Only F60. 4.3 km, 65m climb. Course by Bob Minto. About 42F but thankfully the wind stopped around 9 pm; my start was 9:27.

Watch got turned off for about 6 minutes so some track may be missing too. I changed time to match my printout.

Turned down the wrong road on the way to 2 so lost time there. Had to relocate from road NW of 8. Encountered a control that wasn't mine and checked its code on way to 11.

Decent nav otherwise with roads or trails nearby. F60 Champ by default.

3 PM

Walk/Jog 49:55 [3] 3.17 mi (15:45 / mi) +12m 15:34 / mi
shoes: Sauc TriumphISO-silver/gr/blue

Mostly walking, but jogged a bit now and then after passing the covered bridge (where I started) on the other side of the Little Lehigh.

Very nice day, partly sunny and about 61F. Forsythia are starting to bloom and there were some little yellow flowers that weren't dandelions in bloom along the creek.
4 PM


Near the covered bridge (our start-stop point), we saw a bike rider with a small dog in a backpack. The dog (a miniature poodle or some such) wore a pair of goggles to protect its eyes. When it was let out of the backpack it immediately tried to get them off, apparently only tolerating them for the bike ride. Cute
