10 AM

Orienteering race 56:22 [4] *** 6.1 km (9:14 / km) +167m 8:07 / km
spiked:9/10c shoes: VJ Falcons 3 (yellow)

A good run. Map was much more readable than Saturday's and the implied slow woods due to "ice storm damage" were not bad at all. Was sloppy on rough compass on the early part of two legs which cost about a minute on each. Not careful enough going to the first control and got drawn off by a bag to the right. Maintained contact and read the terrain well. A bit of extra incentive near the end when I spotted Janet across the field headed to the last control. Since we had started at the same time, I figured I'd try to tie (she fumbled the finish punch more than I did, so I ended up faster).

9 AM

Orienteering race 22:11 [4] *** 2.81 km (7:53 / km) +68m 7:02 / km
spiked:6/8c shoes: VJ Falcons 3 (yellow)

An OK run on a map that was quite difficult to read - lots of green (on the map, I didn't find the terrain too bad) and a long, narrow course with nearly parallel legs. Trails were sometimes a bit hard to see in the terrain, which cost me a minute to the first control. Caught by jima (1 min behind) at #1, and by Ernst (2 min back) at #4 and the three of us flip-flopped the rest of the way. Almost strayed away from 5 with Ernst but corrected sooner and got there first.
2 PM

Orienteering race 38:52 [4] *** 4.49 km (8:39 / km) +54m 8:10 / km
spiked:6/14c shoes: VJ Falcons 3 (yellow)

An ugly run. Going too fast and worrying far too much about getting caught by Ernst who started two minutes back. Map was tough to read and course markings obscured some critical features at time. Off on most of the controls.

Format was a shortish qualifier in the morning with a longer final in the afternoon. Almost 4 hours in between, which is a lot of time to kill. I'd have preferred the two races much closer together (actually, I'd have preferred a single middle distance race with better map printing).

6 PM

Road Run 29:06 [3] 3.34 mi (8:42 / mi) +49m 8:20 / mi
shoes: NB878 - #9

Time to start training again I guess. 66N and back. Malden Bridge is finally open as a two lane bridge (after about 2 years of single lane and a traffic light). Hooray! Clear and 50F and getting dark as I finished.
