(rest day)

This weekend will be my 7th in a row on the road for races. When next weekend rolls around it will be my first day off (and first Friday night) at home in 2 months. This goes all the way back to WOC. I had 3 weekends off between Wyoming and WOC. Before that it was 2 in Yukon, 1 off, then 2 more in WY. So since July 4th I've had 4 weekends at home. Ran local races on 2 of those 4, and one was off with a recent ankle injury. Spent at least 4 of those weekend days working on the barn with Brad, and did a couple of long bike rides which was nice. Its hard to immagine what I did before orienteering. I suppose my apt was cleaner, and I probably got alot more done at work. I think I even had some hobbies. Anyways, I'm starting to wear thin and really looking forward to making some pancakes and coffee and just sitting at home listening to Car Talk next weekend. Maybe catch up on O-sport reading too. And all those chores...

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.
