Orienteering race 2:06:23 [4] 6.2 km (20:23 / km) +245m 17:01 / km
shoes: IceBug Olx 4

West Point Long Green Y. Well, this was a disappointment, and a tiring one at that. I never understood the map, right from the beginning, when I walked the whole way to the first control, trying to make sense of what the map was saying but never getting it. And for pretty much the whole course, I just wandered through the wilderness hoping for a glimmer of understanding that would let me guess where I might be.

Orienteering race 41:33 [4] 3.7 km (11:14 / km) +135m 9:30 / km
shoes: IceBug Olx 4

West Point Middle Green Y. I enjoyed this run, nice woods, good map, mostly straightforward navigation. On the first three controls I made little errors approaching the controls, which, on 2 and 3, were fairly costly because of having to run back uphill. The rest of the way went well, and I kept up good speed, to finish second in M60 and 9th on the course.

Orienteering race 27:30 [4] 2.5 km (11:00 / km) +25m 10:29 / km

West Point Sprint Green. This was a continuation of my terrible performance on sprints. I don't know why I bother with them. Things fell apart on #4, when I crossed through the woods by the pond and came into the obstacle course without knowing where I was. I lost minutes on each control in this area, in too much of a hurry to actually figure anything out. Then a good sequence after leaving the obstacle course, until I mispunched at 18, punching a control hung on a picnic table about 20 meters away instead. I see now that the picnic table was not a man-made object, but a stand for a control described as a paved area.

Core strength 20:00 [3]

Core plus leg exercises. My legs are still feeling pretty battered from a hard week and a long O-course. I notice that muscle soreness has been appearing 2 days or more after the actual overuse event, which seems like a long time. Nothing at all in the intervening day. Maybe it's part of aging, along with a longer recovery time in general.
