orienteering (race) 51:07 
after blowing 20 bucks on some muscle balm and icy hot, then taking some naproxene and a gulp of some amish snake oil vinegar and garlic crap to prevent cramps, i wrapped my foot/ankle to keep foot from flexing and wrapped my lower calf so tight my toes were tingling, then covered it all with compression socks, walked to start which was my warmup. to 1 walked uphills, did the gimp/limp run, but i saw the clue sheet had rocks and number 132, but the map circle was a dot ditch, got really confused thinking maybe i was going to 7 instead of 1, got exactly to control and saw it was #67 so i went E to next ditch and nothing was there, then i checked maps' printed clue sheet had the #67 ditch and i realized i had picked up the clue sheet from yesterday on the start table, so i took the sheet out of my holder and set it by the bag, so that wasn't the best start. 2,3 were fine going straight and quick but calf was really distracting me. really messd up 4 pulled up way too early because the ditches/small stream/shallow reentrant just really didn't seem right, it seemed like extra "stuff" down there, actually doubled back till i saw the bag at 3 from a distance then went to control. so i was pissed off at that and ran to 5,6 straight and quick, on way to 7 calf was getting dicey so on the slight up to control i had to slow down to a walk and ram my heel down to stretch and keep weight off forefoot, to 8 was doing the gimp/limp run and was worried about it locking up so i slowed down, pulled up way too early where i thought the contol would be, it was easy leg but i lost focus and time and got pissed off and on the way to 9 added a hop to the limp up the hill quicker and navigated well and spiked control, 10, 11,12 were a bit sloppy and slow and calf was dicey again. coming into 12 from straight line saw mike minium coming up hill to control and meeting there i said "hey mike" and after reading PG's log about cheating, i wonder if PG and staff can accuse me of cheating by conversing with a competitor, mike took the high road and ignored me (i think,, i cannot confirm nor deny that he spoke to me). 13 was straight down/up and fine. to 14 went straight/slightly right and hit trail and my shin met some barb wire just before green, then hobbled along as best i could to finish. again disappointing because i sort of figured errors at 1, 4, and keeping half my attention on the dreaded calf strain would do me in....and it did, but the terrain and weather were just great.
