orienteering 3:52:00 [3] 32.5 km (7:08 / km)

Hudson Highlander IX. Lousy race for me. I blew #2 badly and got dropped, then messed up 3, fumbled my way through to the first exchange, went out the wrong way from there. Demoralized. Walked a leg or two, then picked it up a bit and had a fast final loop, which was mostly on trails. I noticed from the splits that the 2 legs in the middle where I basically gave up cost me 10 mins. That was the difference between top 10 and top 5. The moral - as always - is never, EVER, give up a race before its over (injuries excepted). There is *always* a chance to recover from errors no matter how stupid I am on any given control. After control #3 all I could think was "the race is lost." Thats a killer. Not only does it make navigation impossible, its just not nice to think that way. Everyone out there (myself included) expects me to try my best the entire race. I want people who beat me in a race or on any given leg to think "Yeah, I beat Eddie! Hot damn!!" Rightly so. Have a look at comments on my route in the splits list. I was 9th.

cycling 1:13:00 [4] 24.95 mi (2:56 / mi)

Work commute. Made the light at York and Church lane on the way home! That light is synched with the one at Greenspring and Padonia. If I jam hard through the 1.5 miles between them I can make the cycle. Otherwise its a 5 min wait.

road run 21:40 [3] 4.81 km (4:30 / km)

Road run around the neighborhood in the dark right after getting off the bike.
