orienteering race 24:52 [5] *** 3.1 km (8:01 / km) +58m 7:20 / km

Not a great race, but still tons of fun!!! though i did lose the bet that andrew couldn't beat me... shucks!
super duper fast and it was fatal if you didn't thumb along or even worse, lost contact with the map. Lost a total of 2min on 9 and 10 but i'm so proud of myself; i had no idea where i ended up going to 10, and so just like we practiced on wednesday, i stopped, figured out where i had gone, figured out where i was, and then went and got the control!! yay!!! couldn't saved some more time if i had bothered to read all of the walls and such.

running warm up/down 20:00 [1]

warm ups for both of my races.

running race 5:49 [5] 1.5 km (3:53 / km)

a pretty good race. legs felt tired but i didn't kill myself at all. gotta work on the water pits and not doing a two foot landing. should be intense next week!!!!

running race 5:17 [5] 1.5 km (3:31 / km)

felt like an amazing race, but wasn't even as fast as last week. i was feeling good on the last lap, but i couldn't keep up with the 3 lead girls who were just booking it and got in under 5min!!! holy macaroni!!!

cycling 46:00 [2]

biking here and there in the rain... woohoo!

orienteering 1:30:00 [3]

relocation training up at pink lake. those woods still trick me every single time!!! had to lead the two other people to some point in the woods, and then they had to figure out where they were on the map. lots of fun for sure!!!

ultimate 45:00 [2]

4 games, won one!!! yay!!!! probably played for longer, but i wasn't running too hard.

orienteering race 1:31:00 [4] 8.0 km (11:23 / km)

Had a real sloppy run for the long... not so happy with it.
Got to 1 alright, taking it kinda slow just to get into the map (though i didn't get into it very far, cause i didn't bother checking what the scale was until i had finished the course). 2 was a bit of a disaster... got into the vicinity of the circle just fine, but then i just couldn't find the control!!! it was so frustrating and it happened on almost every single control on the course!! 3 was just terrible... it was only bout 100m, but i came out of 2 wrong, and overan it and then... yeh... not so smooth. 4 actually went alright, lots of climb, but i absolutely spiked the control which helped with the confidence after the last two controls. 5 had me freaking out when i got to the other side of the stream and i wasn't where i thought i was. just managed to see the spur through all of the leaves, and then, crossing my fingers, i ran to where i was hoping the control was... and hallelujah!!!!! 6 actually worked out alright, but then 7 wasn't pretty bad. i wasn't totally lost... i was just in one of two places... really tricky to orienteer like that. finally did figure it out, and struck out for 8 which just ended in my standing in a fallen down tree 4 feet above the ground trying to find the control... yeh, i was getting pretty desperate. route to 9 was pretty brutal... i just wanted to get to the trail as fast as possible, so i went straight through the huge marsh at the edge of the map. pretty sure i went right off the map, and 'stump jumping' was not fun at all. thankfully, got through the last controls without screwing up at all, i was just completely exhausted!!
