Orienteering 45:00 [1]

New Haven Training Weekend

Hanging controls at Osbornedale. I think I annoyed Becky and JonM this morning (and the night before, at the print shop) with my stressing out, but once I was out in the woods with a map I felt relaxed and excited to be orienteering again.

Orienteering 15:00 [2]

Things were going smoothly, so I snuck out to do the compass course. By now, I know Osbornedale well enough that it's tough to get much out of it with a regular orienteering course, but the compass exercise was great. I was sloppy on the first couple, underestimating the distance and being off on the bearing, but started focusing better after that and hit the rest of them pretty well. Nice to be forced to think about particular techniques while orienteering. Exercises like this are great.

Running 20:00 [2]

Running from our place to Becky's and back, plus a few minutes showing a couple of Yale friends how orienteering works. They seemed excited and got the hang of it pretty quickly. The Yale map is a great way to introduce people to the sport!

New Haven Training Weekend

The Yale campus sprint. This was the debut of Becky's brand-new sprint map of the Yale campus, and it was awesome. I had already run most of the course on Thursday, so I just wanted to see if I could improve my time and make fewer mistakes. Certainly, having actual controls out there made me focus better and be more careful in the control circle, as well as made me pay more attention to the control descriptions. I don't think I made any obvious mistakes except for not spotting the tape right away a couple of times. Improved my time from Thursday by over 3 minutes despite being pretty tired already. Great course, great map, great fun!

Dinner and socializing at M&M's afterwards was wonderful too, especially after Ross' attempt to burn down our house was foiled. Great to see so many people, everyone smiling and friendly. A few newcomers too, who hopefully were made to feel welcome. Just a great day.
