Orienteering race 45:17 [3] **** 3.29 mi (13:46 / mi) +164m 11:55 / mi

West Point a meet
Blue middle at victor constant ski slope
4.3k, 140 m

My head was not really in the game at the start, probably worrying about syds status. Got off my line to 1 and ended up at 3 and then fighting laurel uneccessarily. 2-5 went okay but I wasn’t always executing my plan, jbut was able to correct okay. 6 I made I big error when I tried to wing it and follow a faster blue runner who left me stuck in a mass of laurel. Ended up climbing too high and having to pick my way down a few cliffs. It got better after that, i took my time to stay focused and also because moving fast on the rocky ground or through laurel is really hard for me. Made a really dumb route choice to 13 climbing over a bushy rocky earthbank instead of a nice field, and two juniors followed me! Also hesitated into the finish when I thought I had Missed a punch!

Despite what felt like being slow I ended up with a pretty good time/score. Evidence that slow and steady is a better tactic for me, and that I have improved immensely since last year here

3 PM

Orienteering race 21:45 [3] *** 2.28 mi (9:32 / mi) +84m 8:34 / mi
26c shoes: New Balance 808

West Point A meet
Blue sprint
3.1 km, 70m

The weather during the hour I was waiting oscillated between sunny and warm and cold and rainy so it wasn’t clear what to wear. Settled on tights and arm sleeves. Course was a blast but I really need to brush up on sprint symbols and practice reading sprint maps because I made a ridiculous number of mistakes. This was the sprintiest sprint I’ve done with lots of choices and tricky passages to understand and navigate!

1-could not figure out what was north. Walked in circles a few times before I got it straight.
3 - flag was up a level from where I expected it
6 - big hesitation and climbed the stairs without even being sure, luckily it was right
11- went thru the tunnel and then couldn’t figure out where my flag was.
14- got tripped up for a few seconds before reading it was inside.
15- overshot
19- thought it was under the awning but under that was a tunnel, so I had to go around to get down a level
23- took an inefficient uphill sidewalk

Finish was into an inside track with a 50m dash which was pretty cool.
24 thought it was in the garage instead of around the back

Orienteering 55:00 [3] **** 6.89 mi (7:59 / mi) +300m 7:02 / mi
13c shoes: Salomon Speedcross 4 - Navy

Need to clip the track because I forgot to turn it off for the car ride back.

Mass start relay at Harriman

Started off with the pack but was quickly left in the dust when I made a pretty big mistake to 2. My first loop was a short 2 controls that went mostly ok, and then my second loop was the longest loop and I made a big error to 6 in the laurel. The rest of the loop felt ok but my legs felt heavy and I wasn’t really feeling it so I decided to quit at the spectator loop instead of going back out for two more short loops. It wasn’t increasing my confidence for the next days but it was a good reminder that this is still very tricky to me so I need to slow down and be careful, winging it doesn’t work here.

Road Running 47:27 [3] 5.07 mi (9:22 / mi) +95m 8:51 / mi

Brought a map simulation. Counting contours is apparently ingreat weakness of mine. Perhaps that is why I tend to go straight over hills

Trail Running 1:33:08 [3] 8.94 mi (10:25 / mi) +251m 9:35 / mi

Colder than it has been, but it was nice for running. Wasn’t feeling fast but still had a decent pace.
