Orienteering race 1:45:43 [2] *** 4.05 mi (26:07 / mi) +257m 21:49 / mi

Flying Pig at Mounds - Green Middle Distance

Went around too many reentrants on the way to C3 before cutting down. It took some time to figure out what had happened, so I was in a hole early. Also had a miss on C8, but C11 was bad: I made it through the corn fields nicely, but when I angled toward the control, I was too far right and misread the ditches that crossed the trail. Went down too far before really checking with the compass and realizing the lake was in the wrong place, so back up, over and back down.

That put me 8 minutes behind schedule, but the next legs were shorter and I stayed more focused, to finish well under the 2-hour time that I didn't want to be over.

(rest day)

Did not enter the Long at the Flying Pig, as I was afraid of overdoing it. 62 days until surgery.

Nate made it to the Pig and had to run Blue. CMU is not the greatest place to stay fit as a Computer Science major, so his rustiness showed.

Zach won the Eastern Interscholastic Champs - we'll see if he can ride some momentum into the weekend. He has not had much orienteering in the last year due to his illness last spring and XC taking priority in the fall.

Luke was second on his course, behind a big, strong kid. He'll have several tough competitors this weekend.
4 PM

Orienteering race 1:49:49 [1] 3.51 mi (31:19 / mi) +232m 25:58 / mi

Flying Pig Middle at Bear Something Reservation.

Hip was a big issue on this course, with all of the sharp ups and downs thru reentrants. Also, three scary creek crossings as the water was moving quickly and my left leg doesn't plant well.

A couple of mistakes due to the rust, but most of the wandering was to find friendlier routes.

Orienteering 1:16:41 [1] *** 2.06 mi (37:08 / mi) +52m 34:27 / mi

Map Hike at Sprague Brook. I got exactly one control in 76 minutes. I had to go WAY around to avoid the much higher than usual water. The snow was still quite deep, so when I started to consider a second control, I realized there was no chance before dark and just tried to get up the hill to the main trail, so I could get back to the car.

Biking 23:09 [3] 6.91 mi (3:21 / mi)

P=186, C=70

First recorded time on this course. First third of the course was w/up and fell 25 seconds behind the 200 pacer, but gradually walked him down the rest of the way.

Biking 18:31 [4] 4.53 mi (4:05 / mi)
ahr:134 max:149

P=197, C=65

Another course that I had not done. Now just one remains (all-time - I have to check what's been covered in 2014). Played with the 210 pacer, smoking him on the final climb.

Biking warm up/down 1:30 [2] 0.4 mi (3:45 / mi)

0.1 after first course, 0.3 after 2nd.

Biking 10:00 [3] 2.5 mi (4:00 / mi)
ahr:123 max:155

P=157, C=61

10 minutes of dragons for 43,503 points. Mostly did 2 or 3 different silver coins/dragons, mostly with 4x score, and 2x or 4x speed in between.

54th in the world for this season (OK, the season is only 12 days old, and only 352 people have done this).
