Orienteering race 40:45 [4] 5.8 km (7:02 / km) +190m 6:02 / km

Mad Hatter middle - tentative on first 4, particularly to 2 when I noticed my compass needly was sticking as I left 1 (fortunately, it came unstuck as I approached 2 and mostly stayed that way throughout the race), caught up by Mike Smith shortly thereafter but got ahead when he made one of his significant errors at 6, caught up again and again got away when he made his other significant error on, I believe, 13. Nothing brilliant but avoiding potential disasters when there were so many of them lying in wait is acceptable.

Orienteering race 1:24:56 [4] 9.6 km (8:51 / km)

West Point Long - significant time losses on 5 and 9. Looks as though I could keep map contact in the middle of legs while running as fast as or faster than the other Canadians present but I was messing up at the end of legs more often/worse than many of them. Unfortunate but, given that this weekend was my first exposure to rocky terrain this season, a certain degree of improvement ought to come automatically, more so if this instills a bit more caution during the yellow light phase of legs.

Orienteering 2:00:00 [2]

On the way home, went for a long run on Surebridge, control picking and then slowly running one of the courses from last October's training camp that was run during the week before I got there. A useful reminder of the WOC 93 mapping style. Slowness was pretty much mandatory after the morning's race but also seemed appropriate since it was mainly attacking controls in detailed areas that gave me trouble this weekend. Practicing total map contact in extremely complex terrain therefore seemed like a good idea.

Should have brought my small hydration pack for this weekend. Drank a lot before going out but was very dry by the time I finished.
