Orienteering warm up/down 10:00 [2] ***

Ran around the sprint model map to warm up.

Orienteering race 21:46 [5] **** 2.9 km (7:30 / km) +100m 6:24 / km
ahr:189 spiked:6/12c

The US Sprint champs. I made rather large errors to controls #2 and #3 and after that kept making route choices that made me climb more than necessary (and those were slow climbs) and promising myself not to make them again. Very poor run technically. Physically had to take it easy towards the end because almost left my breakfast on one of the climbs.

Orienteering race 1:04:18 [4] ***** 6.0 km (10:43 / km) +265m 8:47 / km
ahr:177 spiked:13/16c

The US relay champs. My team was running unoficially and was already out of the competition by the time I started on the mass start of the third leg. Thus, I did not have any pressure on me. I guess that was one of the reasons why I felt the best of the weekend physically and was sharp mentally - e.g., I made the best routechoice to #4 (through the start, as suggested by PG himself), etc. Was very happy with my run, although by pushing it more, I could have done it at least 5 minutes faster.

Running warm up/down 11:00 [2] 1.2 km (9:10 / km)

Running to the start and cutting through the woods to check them out a bit.

Orienteering race 52:34 [3] **** 5.4 km (9:44 / km) +220m 8:05 / km
ahr:187 spiked:11/17c

The Short Pig. Felt very weak physically and that was amplified with poor route choices and mistakes at controls. Guess something you would expect from the first orienteering workout since November... Certainly the 5+ hour drive earlier in the day didn't help my physical shape. My first conclusion from my first American A-meet: the best Americans are fast, the best Canadians - very fast.
