10 AM

orienteering race 47:24 [3] 4.01 km (11:50 / km) +100m 10:31 / km

very cautious, couldn't see much with the rain - took off my glasses at 4. only really big mistake was 2-3


1) way too cautious, execution was fine - did not need to walk the whole way
2) still very cautious
3) caught daydreaming - wasn't paying attention to my plan and just kept following the rocky ground
4) headed off in wrong direction, adding to route length - could hardly see anything so took safe route around
5) stopped shortly after leaving 4 to take off glasses and put in camelback - could now see where i was going, but no map detail - was a longer but safer route, pretty well executed
6) very easy leg - for some reason I was walking again - need to keep reminding myself to run
7) sped up a bit, went over cliff just a few meters from control.
8) very briefly started to head off in wrong direction, then very simple navigation all the way to 8 (had picked up some speed here)
9) simple navigation, decided to drop down and then look behind me for control instead of trying to figure the cliff out from the top. dropped down only a few meters from control.
10) follow along hillside,, over to train then in - spotted control easily
11) just follow marked trail.

meds have me so dried out - i just can't get enough fluids

Wednesday May 5, 2010 #


doc thinks my ongoing congestion issues are due to mould and pets and other allergies. Guess this means I should do something about the mould in my basement (and no, smoking doesn't help).


rescanned middle map from past week-end and scanned sprint map

boot camp 1:00:00 [4]

sprinting and agility, core work, then more sprinting
pretty tough with very congested lungs but managed to keep up

Sunday May 2, 2010 #


very long drive back with 2 hour wait at the border
8 AM

orienteering 1:42:51 [4] 6.91 km (14:53 / km)

map with route at my doma site

1) cut in a little too late and moving way too slow
2) should have stuck right to fence or gone around green (direct route beyond my abilities)
4) looks like i was standing on top of the right cliff when i bailed out (dunh) - lost over 10 minutes here
8) didn't have a plan, and way too slow when i finally came up with one
10) more climb but much safer route
11) very hard to keep map contact, hesitation (and backtracking) just outside circle when i wasn't 100% sure where i was
