Orienteering 8:01 [3] 0.46 mi (17:26 / mi)
shoes: Inov8 X-Talon

Line-o at Hammond Pond
I definitely got off at the end of this but I'm not sure if the track is actually where I got to or not.

Orienteering 12:52 [3] 0.89 mi (14:28 / mi)

Simplification at Hammond Pond with Keegan switching off who led. The person following had to make a plan while being led to one control, and then handed off the map before starting to lead to the next control.

Orienteering 18:01 [3] 1.21 mi (14:54 / mi)
shoes: Inov8 X-Talon

Relocation exercise with Keegan, Rachel, and Sarah. One person led to some point on the map while the others didn't look at the map, and then the other three relocated and raced to the control.

The route on this is probably not very accurate because there aren't any points other than the start and finish that I know exactly where on the track it was.

Running 3:42 [2] 0.35 mi (10:35 / mi)

Orienteering 49:43 [3] 4.1 km (12:08 / km) +40m 11:34 / km
shoes: Inov8 X-Talon

Green course at Hammond Pond. Big mistake on 11 and another slightly smaller on 19. Pretty frustrated about those two but most of the others were pretty clean.

I don't know what happened to the gps on three... definitely didn't go through the swamp but also wasn't able to find a way to match the gps track up with anything that I thought I had done...

Functional Strength Routine (no jogging)

Running (Treadmill) 30:00 [3] 3.56 mi (8:26 / mi)

Wow I feel like crap. Really tired and I have a headache (possibly just dehydrated).
5 PM

Strength 40:00 [2]

1 minute each of v-ups, tuck-ups, single legs, penguins, Russian twists, toe touches, sit-ups, leg lifts, reverse crunches, plank (no break inbetween), 2 minutes 30 seconds of Russian twists and then sit-ups (holding a ten lb dumbbell for both), then 25 minutes of arms. I searched on YouTube for an arm workout (I wanted to do a different one than I normally do) and I found this one . I didn't feel like doing much searching and this was one of the first that came up so I just did it (using 5 lb dumbbells).

Does anyone have a picture of the Green Middle Map that they could send me?

This was not a clean run. Most of the time I chose a reasonable route, but a bunch of times I then got off said route a little (and once or twice a lot).

Westchester Green Long 2018

Long course review:
Aimed for the hill but ended up going a little too far right, not too bad, but also not how I wanted the start the race.
Planned on cutting off the road at the water stop (which I did) and hitting the trail on the curve, but I got too far left and didn't hit it. Ended up just pushing for the yellow and from there I took the trail, leaving at the spur. I went up more than I needed to, and that lost me a bit of time.
Didn't check my compass well enough, and went much farther left than I wanted to. I saw the trail to the left of the control, and realized my mistake there, and after that it was pretty quick to find three.
I was determined to not screw this one up as all of the others hadn't gone well, and it was pretty good. I used the spur to the saddle, swamp and then in.
Again, pretty clean, used the stone wall up through the saddle but the cliff, and from there you could see the rocks by the control.
A lot of compass and roughly reading contours, but the reentrant was really obvious, so I was able to find it quite easily.
This is one of the legs that I'm not sure that I chose the best route. I chose to us the trail and cross the yellow, cutting the corner and getting to the road, using the cliffs and small hill to cut in and the cliffs were viable from the end of the hill.
Pretty easy, just follow the hill and get to the stone wall.
Originally thought about going all the way up the yellow to the trail crossing, but I got to the large trail which was right before a steep hill, where I realized that it would be smarter to contour around the hill instead of climbing extra just to run back down it. It was pretty clran into the control, passing the trail and the reentrant before the control.
Definitely could have been better. I chose to follow the yellow to the first stone wall(of the three that were close), but I then drifted right and ended up in some nasty prickers. I got to the trail and checked off stone walls, knowing that the third crossing would be the one my control was on. I left the trail on the spur to cut off the corner.
Left 10 aiming right to hit the trail. At the yellow I just used my compass and paid attention to the contours.
Followed the stone wall to the trail, where I went right at the junction, and then followed the stone wall to the reentrant where I went up to the trail. From the trail I aimed slightly left to hit the stream, and then loosely follow it down to the next trail. Used the trail to the road and cut in where the stream crossed the road.
Looking back on it, it probably would have been better to go left to the road and around until the spur, and followed that down to the control.
I had planned on following the contours around to not loose height, but I ended up almost in the flat area from which I followed the second stream up.
This was annoyingly bad. I didn't really have a solid plan-it was more of a compass and contour and hope but that was obviously not a good idea (and never is so I dont know why I thought that could ever have a good outcome when you also had to go down a few contours but...). I ended up going to far (passed the stream) before figuring out where exactly I was (I had the feeling that I had gone to far). When I turned around I was good, and made it cleanly to the control.
Looking back on it I definitely should have looked down the hill for the swamp and the road intersection (if it was visable).
I had passed Victor earlier in the course (12?) and then he passed me on to 14, leaving me to chase him.
Easy down to the road, along the road to the field, and compass off of the corner checking off the trail and stream, hitting the stone wall corner and finding it easily from there.
15-16-17-finish was pretty obvious, and I was chasing Victor the whole time which helped me to push.
