Orienteering race (A meet at Golden Gate) 15:12**** 2.68 km (5:40 / km) +45m5:14 / km spiked:15/16c
Stage 1. Steady run with 20-30 sec dropped from hesitancy and 1 so-so route choice. Enough to be pipped by Tapio for second. Fun course and area with a few tricky areas to watch. SL = 2.2k. Stage 2 awaits :-)
Orienteering race (Stage 2 GG) 17:28**** 2.82 km (6:12 / km) +50m5:41 / km spiked:17/19c
Mass start stage 2, seeded 11th. Steady race, could have been more economical by going straighter, caught Rex who only just beat me in the bracket- 12th fastest so through to div 1. SL 2.2 k.
Change of location for stage 3.
Orienteering race (Stage 3 Lands end) 18:58**** 2.89 km (6:34 / km) +90m5:41 / km spiked:16/16c
Change of scenery at USS San Fran memorial looking out over the Pacific and Marin headlands. Another decent run tho legs were tired, but managed to stay in contact with Carol R. SL = 2.3k. 11th on time, so seedingnpretty accurate. Staying in div 1 as a deer, Oh dear. Pick up Roz now and off to dinner,
To Muir Woods, the hillside trail and Cathedral grove- the solemn majesty of the Sequoia. Then to Sausalito (army corp Bay Model) for lunch and GG park for quick look at model area. Fine but cold early then rain.
Different plan today just to keep legs turning over as not enough time to do full track wo. 14x100m strides at approx. mile pace with 100m recovery jog. pretty much a recovery run effort which is good.
Orienteering race (PH green) 41:04*** 4.95 km (8:18 / km) +170m7:05 / km spiked:10/11c
More rested mentally today, legs a bit tired however a solid and largely error free run with maybe 2 1/2 mins lost - including almost forgetting to go to #11 as the finish beckoned. Walked a few hills and generally Ok route choices- legs to 6 and 7 could have been more efficient. Nice course by Magnus on new and legible map by Jeff S. SL=4.3k
