Orienteering (Model Event) 45:00 [2] ***
shoes: Salomon TR2

Walked / jogged the model event at Hickory Run with Jackson. AOWN - found a really large bear scat and a deer skull.... 9 year olds love that stuff...

Orienteering race (Middle Distance RedX) 50:24 [5] *** 4.3 km (11:43 / km) +160m 9:53 / km
shoes: Salomon TR2

Errors on #1 & #2 probably worth 7-8 minutes, then settled down and navigated more slowly and tentatively but pretty clean the rest of the way. Only other error was on the long leg from 9-10 I didn't notice the trail across the bridge and misread it as a form line at the top of the slope - so I opted to do my climbing on the road, running back through the start callup area, then cutting across the stream and up the hill to avoid a long leg in light green. Executed my route perfectly, but in retrospect that trail probably would have saved me a couple minutes. Middle of the pack today...

Orienteering (Middle Distance White) 29:31 [3] 1.7 km (17:22 / km) +40m 15:32 / km
shoes: Salomon TR2

Shadowing Jackson on white. Another good outing for him, including a number of off trail legs - 2 by design, one by Jacksons choice. The latter would have been fast going around on trail, but he learned that the hard way. One major error heading down the wrong trail to #7, I let him go about 2 minutes before telling him to stop, read the map and figure out where he was. Back to #6 we went and then ok from there...

Orienteering (Sprint Model) 40:00 [1] ***
shoes: Salomon TR2

Walked / jogged the Mountaintop campus model event with Jackson upon arriving in Bethlehem.

Run - Road warm up/down 40:00 [2]
shoes: Salomon TR2

Walk to the start - once for my course, then again with Jackson. I jogged most of it for mine, walked with Jackson. Lots O climb...

Orienteering race (Lehigh Sprint Red) 23:58 [5] *** 3.1 km (7:44 / km) +58m 7:04 / km
shoes: Salomon TR2

Good race, awesome venue. One hesitation came down a slope at an angle to avoid mulched bed (wasn't green though) and ended up a bit west of where I wanted to be, couldn't make sense of the vegetation (white vs open), then turned around and saw flag right behind me - 20s lost there. A few other spots where my route wasn't the optimum (based upon post race reading of the map), but I chose my routes and executed them well. 1st place M45 and hopefully worth some decent sprint points..


Orienteering (Lehigh Sprint White) 28:47 [3] *** 1.7 km (16:56 / km) +10m 16:27 / km
shoes: Salomon TR2

Shadowing Jackson on Rec White Sprint. I really liked the fact that DVOA made the rec courses use the same course, and the competitors got to be part of the same system - call up lines, e-punching, download - the whole works. It really gave Jackson the full A-meet experience. he had a great time and did really well with only very mimimal coaching on my part.

Orienteering (Crandalls) 36:00 [1] 2.0 km (18:00 / km)
shoes: Salomon TR2

White course line-o training with Jackson. Highlighted a trail route on map and had him follow it - practicing folding the map, keeping it oriented and announcing the major features he was looking for and then when he reached them. He walked past two trail junctions but realized within a minute or so that things weren't right, and then relocated/back tracked with a little nudging. Monday will be interesting, to say the least...

Hiking 40:00 [1] 3.86 km (10:22 / km) +70m 9:30 / km
shoes: Puma Sierra Trail Racers

Didn't feel like the hassle of changing clothes this AM, so walked up to Crystal Lake to retrieve the car rather than running. Nice morning for a walk though..

dropped car off at Doug's at dawn, run home to pick up bike...

Bike - Slipstream (commute) 1:14:00 [3] 24.0 km (3:05 / km) +300m 2:54 / km
shoes: Slipstream

after running back from Doug's, hopped on the bike for the work commute. New pedals work really nice. Nice morning for riding, quads complaining a bit near the end. Expecting a new crank with lower gearing tomorrow - should help keep me spinning on the steeper hills.

Bike - Slipstream (commute) 1:00:00 [3] 18.8 km (3:11 / km) +300m 2:57 / km
shoes: Slipstream

The direct route as I had to make sure I was home for the bus...
