running warm up/down 52:28 [3] 5.83 mi (9:00 / mi)
shoes: New Balance 767

Cooldowns before and after control pickup with John, on dirt road. It wasn't too hilly, but I was pretty tired.

orienteering (control pickup) 25:03 [3] 2.91 km (8:36 / km) +135m 6:59 / km
shoes: New Balance 767

Control pickup with John, from memory. I was surprised with how much I remembered, especially my checkoff features and attack points. John had to remind me of the course a lot, though.
A good day to re-run the course, because it showed me how well I could've done without much effort if I'd just slowed down and kept in contact with the map.

orienteering (US Team Sprint) 43:12 [3] *** 2.91 km (14:51 / km) +135m 12:03 / km
spiked:6/12c shoes: O' Shoes

I completely bombed this whole course. I was thinking "Sprint=Run fast!" the whole way, and I should've looked at each leg and decided which ones were for running and which were for being careful.

Warmup, including 2 striders.

running race (Junior-Senior Team Challe) 1:30 [5]
spiked:2/2c shoes: O' Shoes

Had to run against Sam, on the first leg. We both had to go to the lower control, but I had about 30m less to run than her on the upper one since the junior team got to let one person run shorter. We didn't need to do that, though, because by the 4th leg we were ahead by a lot.

running 29:21 [3] 3.26 mi (9:00 / mi)
shoes: New Balance 767

Easy run with John and Hillary this morning (except the hill back up to the campsite, but I walked the worst part). The outside of my lower legs felt a little tight, and I think it might've been from orienteering in my running shoes yesterday. No knee soreness at all, though. Legs felt a little tired, which makes sense since this is a long week for me. Cool weather. About perfect for t-shirt and shorts.

orienteering race (Night O' Champs) 1:02:13 [3] ***
shoes: O' Shoes


Bought new O' shoes from Gale, threw my duct-taped soccer shoes in the dumpster.

orienteering race 1:02:14 [3] *** 5.5 km (11:19 / km) +200m 9:34 / km
spiked:8/14c shoes: New Balance 767

Rocks slowed me down at the beginning, then there was more open space for running.
Wore running shoes since my soccer shoes are in bad shape, and becausee my knees felt like they might be starting to get sore. They feel fine now.
I think I'll put my comments up with my splits.

running warm up/down 12:02 [3] 1.34 mi (8:59 / mi)

Waited around a long time for my 11:10 start.

cycling 18:53 [2]

Borrowed Rudy's bike and took the campground road to Happy Jack Trail, to Tie City Campground. This includes the whole ride there, but I didn't count most of the ride back since there was so much coasting downhill.

running (Happy Jack map) 29:08 [3] *** 3.24 mi (9:00 / mi)
shoes: New Balance 767

Started at the corner of the Happy Jack map. Ran the trail out to get used to it a little and read the contours looking through the woods. When I got near these 2 rock features, I stopped my watch while I walked around and picked out each black triangle and bare rock area. The most important things I learned:
1-Bare rock on contours is as noticable as boulders on the ground, although it's not as eye-catching on the map.
2-Single boulders aren't very useful.
3-The contours are the most helpful when things get confusing.
4-Rocky areas are hard to run through.

Then I took a rough bearing through the woods to a wide saddle. The light green was hard to run through, with sticks down and stuff. I ended up where I wanted, in the open field. The contours were a lot more subtle than they appeared to me on the map, and I was confused for a second.
I was running down a broad spur then, reading the vegetation. At first it was tough because I didn't make the distinction between rough open and open w/ scattered trees. I got more confident when I figured that out and then was able to pick out the individual areas of white.
