Orienteering race 42:10 [3] *** 3.1 km (13:36 / km)
spiked:7/10c shoes: 2009 Yellow NB 840s

Green Y middle course at WCOC meet. George thought men were on Y (as they were for Red) and since I was an early starter it hadn't been straightened out yet. Woods very nice and mostly orienteered well, but a couple of bad legs: Parallel error on #1 took me to wrong hilltop. Seemed a bit far, but I was making things line up in my mind until I hit the trail beyond #2. Saw #2 on the way back which made the second leg easy. Then things were going really well until glasses started to fog near #8. Minor boom there as I got sucked off right to another larger apparently unmapped rock, but that was only a few seconds. Fog really set in on #9, where I was on line and almost there and then couldn't see any of the detail along the final hillside, so back and forth hunting for it for 6 minutes! Lost the glasses in a tree on the way to #10. Good that I had a streamer on them or I wouldn't have found them. Nice course. Need to work on vision correction. I ditched the contact last weekend because I wasn't seeing well and my eye was burning. Eye still feels a little sensitive.

Green Y course at West Pt. Had trouble yesterday with the contact, and my eye was sore this morning, so I went with glasses. Much more satisfactory. I can see the map better and they didn't fog or get too streaked.

Generally a pretty good run with a couple of exceptions:

Lost time repairing the punch stand at #1, then more time going down to the road before finding out the gate was locked. Finally, despite being in contact all along the big hillside, I got fooled by a patch of bare rock that I couldn';t see on the map and turned back to look at the knoll before the control again and work my way in.

Got badly hung up in mountain laurel leaving #4.

Otherwise very nice. Particularly liked the second half of #5 through the finish.
3 PM


Pretty tired coming home. Remarked to Rhonda that 10 years ago we would have gone for a 50 mile bike ride on returning from an event that early, and we agreed that we certainly didn't want to do that this time. Unpacked the car and contemplated lots of other things that needed doing, but then I had a call from my neighbor Tom, inviting me to play golf. I have been putting him off for more than a year, so resolved to try.

It didn't turn out well. I hit a half bucket of balls and didn't get one of them more than about 2 feet off the ground, or hit any of them straight. Once we were playing, I actually hit some ok shots, mixed in with some real stinkers, but it didn't feel good on my elbow (braced), lower back or right hip. I hit my best shot on the 7th, a drive of 280, in the fairway, but I could feel it deep in my hip, and I took the next hole off. I did string 6 bogeys together, which was pretty remarkable given that I seemed to have at least one shot each hole that made no appreciable forward progress.

I won't be playing again for a while, but I guess I can count it as rogaine practice.
