Orienteering race 1:21:59 [5] *** 6.6 km (12:25 / km) +185m 10:54 / km
20c shoes: New Balance 479

The bettor of the two days...

I held a good spot (6) through 4 controls;-) On the fifth I thoughtfully climbed out from 4 and was poised for the "right" path, but didn't see it under the red line to 5 and went back down and around adding a bit of length.

But still not in a bad place through 9.On the way out from 9 I had my first very-painful incident - I went through some brush that didn't give and wrapped up through my leg - and had thorns... So when I made my way around a pond and hit a path I decided to use the trail a little extra and avoid more growth. I think I must have been 20 meters from the control but turned - and then reached the path I had started from - ugh. I set a bearing and paced the 100 meters back to the control.

Ok again till 13 - missed by a small amount and again wandered around for a couple extra minutes on the control. 14 was not a great control, but I don't know that anything other than fatigue was the problem there.

The go control caught me for another minute and a half. The notes had talked about the finish sharing the path with the start and someone had indicated before I left that the control was right next to the start. I finished running down the hill, saw the start, but not the go. Got all the way back to the "non-start get your map location" (which was not mapped) and still no go control... ugh.

Anecdotaly I heard that others found the control because another competitor was punching in ahead of them, I was not so lucky. [And it looks like more than a quarter of the red open had an issue giving them a rather long time on that control]

21 out of 35 on the course in AP. 9th of 14 M45+.

Exercises 2:00:00 [4]

So it was really 8 hours worth of planting - making a dozen $50 holes for $5 tress - putting in a new windbreak / screen for the back yard. [corner lot] Digging, rock removal (forgot how rocky the ground is), planting, relocating sod (can't let it go to waste;-)

Legs are fine from yesterday's hills, but the back will be sore after today...
