Orienteering 1:37:45 [4] 13.36 km (7:19 / km) +505m 6:09 / km

Billygoat - mostly hanging with either Eddie or Nick Duca, couldn't quite hang on to Eddie over the last three controls. May expand later (and correct distance and climb to reflect my skip) but no time to write a novel now. Great fun - thanks to any CSU readers I may have. Damnation on ticks in general and the one I found on my sternum when I got home in particular. Though I hope he or she (both sexes bite, right?) died in the pink of health, utterly free of infectious disease.

Orienteering 41:58 [4] 4.63 km (9:04 / km) +90m 8:16 / km

Tentative reacquaintance with New England terrain after a winter and early spring of spur and reentrant. Moving and map reading a bit slowly, a bit lost on long leg before relocating carefully on the trail, two significant errors in the vicinity of the control if not quite within the circle.

Orienteering 16:33 [4] 2.7 km (6:08 / km) +65m 5:28 / km

A bit of confusion in the dense trail network north of the lake, a couple of not quite spikes (one involving a painful amount of needless climb), and feeling a bit wasted from driving up and the earlier race - it may have felt like a 5 effort but I think it was more of a 4.5.

Cycling 1:12:00 [3] 14.5 mi (4:58 / mi)

Commute, returning by way of a German film as part of Filmfest DC. Regarding my left knee, it felt what is currently normal on Monday but significantly worse on Tuesday for no earthly reason I can imagine. I've been taking ibuprofen since then - seems to help but I don't like it as a permanent solution. Though one of those will have to wait for the O competition season to be over if things continue as they are.

Incidentally, my left knee feels unchanged and I picked up, along with the usual assortment of scratches, a really ugly puncture of the skin on the front of my left biceps. Small but it didn't heal nicely and it was surrounded by a really ugly ring of black, subcutaneous discolouration. I had an attack of hypochondria on the drive home wondering if it might, despite my being fairly certain I picked it up during the Farsta and not seeing a tick at the break after that race, be the classic Lyme disease rash but the colour and size look nothing like online photos so I'm going to assume one of our Indiana plant friends was dispensing some kind of irritant along with the lacerations. I had a couple of similar looking pinpricks on the other arm and all of them are noticeably faded compared to yesterday.

Cycling 1:24:00 [3] 17.0 mi (4:56 / mi)

Commute plus errands - a little easier pace than usual since my quads were feeling the weekend a little bit.
