Orienteering race 15:19 [5] 2.1 km (7:18 / km)

Flying Pig Sprint - Red (same as ISVM)

1:4000 map meant things came up very quickly. 20 controls in 2.1K meant short legs with lots of direction changes and required constant focus on the map to see if straight was not best, and on the terrain, to see where it was easy to cut through the green. Forested, but not heavily so, and with the last few controls in the open, it made for the kind of sprint that I like. I only wish I were in better shape for it.

I did have one lapse - leaving C11, I thought I was drifting left, so I looked to my right and saw a control up a bit and went to it. Ironically, I spotted it (which turned out to be C13), just as I was passing the unseen C12 that was less than 10m away.

The only other error large enough to show up on AP splits was going to C2, I was way right and lost about 15 seconds.

One downer from the weekend (which overall was awesome) was the first control codes were swapped on Zach's and Luke's courses. Luke didn't lose much time, but Zach had been told repeatedly to check the control codes and ended up losing 1:15 on the first control. He still ended up winning soundly, but could have put up a real fine performance (perhaps 4th overall on the course).
2 PM

Orienteering 56:15 [4] 4.5 km (12:30 / km)

Flying Pig Middle - Red Course

Need to find my map, but in the meantime, I have to share the valuable lesson that Z learned this afternoon: because of the control code mix-up this morning, when Z went to his second last control and it said 94 instead of 49 (or vice versa), he went back and double-checked and decided there must be another mix-up. So he managed to score a MP. It's quite ironic that we had stressed checking control codes so much, because of the warning of the new control proximity rules, but still managed to have this happen.

Running 28:39 intensity: (25:19 @2) + (3:20 @4) 3.75 mi (7:38 / mi) +2m 7:38 / mi

Some running during track practice. A mile during their w/up, unmapped 4 strides during their first tempo, some additional unmapped jogging during the workout (only added 1/2 mile), then some laps on the track with Coach Klehr during the w/dn. Finished with 6 unmapped strides during stretching.

The kids did 2x2000m T, then 4x(200R + 200 jog). Original plan of 4x400, 1600T, 4x400 was thrown out due to the sudden return to March weather (windy and upper 30s).

ahr:109 max:146

Investigating the potential control sites for the Dryer Rd Map Hike. I can now pick the 20 most reasonable to use and start placing markers, after I find the wire that I misplaced and figure out how to mark the control numbers and codes on the markers.
