orienteering 2:22:36 [3]

At first glance, it would seem that the West Point curse struck again for me, but I actually felt pretty good about this course. Still fighting off a bout of bronchitis, so although my legs felt pretty strong, my lungs weren't quite up to the task today. I had a lot of fun on the first part of this course, though, and I was really trying to focus on a lot of the technical work we did last fall. Overall, I was picking attackpoints well, and not getting too hung up in the rocks, which is a definite improvement for me over past years. By the time I was at 10 or 11, though, I was starting to cough a lot more, and my lungs were starting to hurt, so I couldn't quite bring myself to slog up the last couple hills to get controls 15-19. The route choices for the long legs felt a little uninspired, too, as it was functionally a long trail run to the attackpoint, then a slog uphill into the control.
