orienteering race 24:12 [3] 2.1 km (11:31 / km)

Sprint at BOK.
Nice steady effort but wasn't pushing all out. Small errors on two controls - one due to not having my contacts in and coming to a dead stop thinking I was seeing a road which shouldn't have been there. And it wasn't really there - just a figment of my eyes without contacts. I need the contacts just as much for distance vision as for reading the map!

strength & stretching 30:00 [2]

Some much needed core work.


DDR - am improving. Nothing great, but can clear a couple of 3 and 4 footers and have started working on light instead of beginner.

running 52:37 [3]

TNT - Clem, Karl, Sandy

Did 3 miles on the drive at about 10 minute pace. At one point Sandy and I were going to split up but there was a guy on the drive in the dark doing nothing - no dog or anything - so we decided it would be better to stick together.

Yoga/Pilates 40:00 [1]

Didn't really get into the class. Spent a lot of time not doing much. Unusual.

orienteering 35:46 [4]

Training at Fatlands. Designed an exercise with 6 controls south of a big berm and 6 north and a couple courses that crossed back and forth once, four times or 7 times. Alison and I did the 4 cross version. About 10 folks showed up. It did what I wanted - got a little navigational practice and a little running in the terrain practice. Did pretty well but definitely room for improvement. Eric W. helped hang which was good since this way I only had seen half the controls and he graciously hung the ones that were further away from the berm so required a tad more navigation.

map hiking 1:00:00 [1]

Hanging controls for the training. Picked a few control locations that looked good on paper but were pretty weak in the terrain. Good practice. Hung using a 1:5000 map and ran on a 1:10000.


Tried something new with epunching. Had folks download into a master station unconnected to a computer. When I got home I was able to read the master station into the event and produce results. Very cool - means that epunching for training is very doable.
