Roller Blading (Hockey Game) 30:00 [3]

Full line of subs!
Scored my first goal!
And we almost won for the first time...

Soccer (Pickup) 1:15:00 [3]

Pickup on the turf field. Was already dead from Hockey, but still fun to run around and mess with a proper sized ball!

Thoughts on orienteering this past week.

Map simplification. I am way too "good" at this. I oversimplify like there's no tomorrow. This strategy works *very* well for bland terrain, such as was found on the long and especially the sprint. Middle on the other hand did not work.

Rocks. ties in with the first point. I just don't know how to read dense rock outcroppings, so I simplify them out and get lost. Just need to practice this type of terrain more, but there isn't that much locally...

Athleticism. Not sure how I manage to always be in decent shape without trying, but it leads me to not push myself to become actually fit, and thus fast. I need to find some sort of motivator for training, since orienteering 3 times a year isn't frequent enough goal testing.

Orienteering race (Sprint) 16:44 [5] 3.2 km (5:14 / km)

I ran fast. Had less than 30 seconds in mistakes / hesitations (I think), which just means that I am about 2 minutes slower than I need to be... Guess I should train more than 3 times a month
