orienteering 1:05:36 [3] 4.5 km (14:35 / km) +95m 13:11 / km

Was having a decent run until the boulder in the green. I thought about swinging left and attacking from the cabins and the relatively white woods, but it looked like I should have been able to read things from the field corner. Wrong - it was a jungle on the way up the hill towards the control and I must have gotten pushed a little left. I thought I read those boulders but must have passed by the control a little to the west. Relocated off the trail above the control but took two tries to find a way back down that wasn't a wall of briars. Pretty annoyed at this point. Finally found an elephant track and figured it must go to the control - it did. Probably lost 6-7 minutes.

I promise not to put any controls like that on the A event courses in November.

walking 3:15:31 [3] 8.49 mi (23:02 / mi) +3m 23:00 / mi

Walking laps for Dennis and Emily's Relay for Life team. My knees were aching by the end - the combination of an asphalt track and the repetitive plodding were tough. But happy to put up with a little discomfort to help out.

The bathroom stops are obvious on the pace graph. The stops for picking up/dropping off various layers of clothes and food and drink were quick enough that they don't really register.

Hopefully can recover quickly from downing large quantities of caffeine in the middle of the night and too little sleep.

running 1:00:02 [3] 4.55 mi (13:11 / mi) +126m 12:09 / mi

Slow steady run on the drive and then ran up all the hills home - took the hill repeat trail and kept saying if Sandy can run the Indian loop I can run this.

Was going to stop at 1 hr or whenever I got home - went out for 29 minutes and turned around figuring I'd be a bit slower up the hill than down - and they happened at just about the same time.
