10 AM

orienteering race (sprint) 22:11 [4] 1.81 km (12:14 / km) +90m 9:48 / km

a horrible start to glof- map with route, crappy scanner
a tactical error 1-2: ran way too hard up the hill to 2 and never recovered
8: anne t. was right behind me, so leaving 7 I just ran up the stream - unfortunately it was the wrong stream - added a fair bit of climb as well as distance since I didn't recover from it very well.
9: headed off in the wrong direction ?!?
3 PM

orienteering race 1:12:45 [3] 4.82 km (15:05 / km) +131m 13:17 / km

another bad race :(
map with route, crappy scanner again
1 -slow as I wasn't sure I was reading the map right
2 - very slow the last 50 meters as i was having problems making sense of the map - turned out to be a good idea
3 - went south to avoid some climb, but way over corrected and misread where i hit the trail - building to the north gave it away, but still managed to go past the control concealed behind a very small rock
4 - just a trudge uphill - misread control sheet and thought I was at wrong control - stopped and went back and of course it was the right one
5 - left the trail later than I intended to and just got myself very confused - relocated, but headed off in wrong direction - maybe I took a bearing on 2 not 5, missed 5 again, decided to relocate from down the hill - saw the swamp, then the trail, went back to 2, and carefully to 5 - 20 minutes! and now very tired
6 - decided to take a safe route and got there fine
7 - again misread where i hit the trail - distracted by many people around - when I realized I was in wrong area, headed south till I could see the trail and followed the countours into 7
8 - straight - hopped behing the control after puching to let Jeff T. go by
9,10 just straight
11 - took slightly shorter route through saddle as that would point me right at the gap in the cliffs - worked great
12 - ran smack into some undergrowth that I wasn't getting through, detoured around - almost missed path to parking lot
7 PM


pretty cool to get home and see my splits already posted! THX Valerie.

stretching - overall
strength - shoulder

interval class 1:00:00 [2]

Today's session was a lot like a very easy boxercise session. Ah well, it woke me up again, and took my mind off my poison ivy itchiness for an hour.
