Warm-up warm up/down 15:00 [3]

Mostly stretching

Orienteering race 1:24:54 [4] *** 8.4 km (10:06 / km)
spiked:14/19c shoes: PI Synchro Seek Trail

Chasing the Star - Long - South Mountain. I was mostly worried about leg cramps for the 3rd and longest event of the weekend, but paid attention to my water intake before (and during) the race and ate two bananas during the drive up. No cramps, but some tired feet. It was a rugged course. Ran pretty well and after some nav problems between 2 and 6, I settled in and had a decent run.

One thing about the orienteering portion of the meet that I really liked was the rec course set-up. First, Tyler got to run his first courses with e-punching and on Monday he got to experience the call up line with the all of the other runners. Although he is probably another year from doing a white course with a true shadow (rather than getting a bit more help), he was really excited about running the courses.

Overall, a fantastic weekend. The weather couldn't have been better and we met some great new people. The camping worked out perfectly with a nice open field for ball games and bunches of kids to play with. The kids can't wait for the next meet to see their new (and old) friends.

Orienteering (Model) 20:00 [3] *** 1.5 km (13:20 / km)

Model Event - Hickory Run - Sand spring Lake

Orienteering 51:32 [4] *** 4.27 km (12:04 / km)
spiked:6/14c shoes: Mudclaw O+340

Even after the model I did not appreciate how little visibility there was even in the white. And low visibility matched w/ subtle control features made for a longer than hoped for time. I overran #1 (almost to #2) and did not gain my confidence back until #6. Well, then I had trouble with #7 and was timid approaching controls for the rest of the event.

Major blisters on both heels by the end of the event. I think it is time to retire the Inov8s

Orienteering 25:04 [5] *** 3.13 km (8:01 / km) +58m 7:20 / km
spiked:17/18c shoes: PI Synchro Seek Trail

Chasing the Star - Sprint - Lehigh Campus. Really my first campus/city sprint setting and I really enjoyed it. I think that fact that is was mostly downhill also helped. Anyway, I had a really clean run and was able to stay highly focused on the map through most of the race. I overran control #15 by a touch and had to go around a building to get back the the correct location. As usual, the first event of the weekend was my best as I tend to get tired and can't maintain a consistent level throughout.
