Orienteering 1:33:52 [4] 3.77 mi (24:54 / mi) +873ft 20:25 / mi
shoes: Salomon Speedcross 3 - Blue

Day 2 - West Point Green Y

Much better day. Started off with some chocolate milk in my morning tea (didn't have reg milk, I'll have to try this again as it was delish!) and some contemplative yoga under a tree in the event area. The goal of this day was to ENJOY myself, b/c Day 1 I really didn't. Nice walk to start with Hughmac3.

#1 - took a longer route to avoid climb
#2 - got a little discombobulated with contour reading- really need to work on this. So complex! I picked up a walking stick and used it to help me get down this really steep rocky hill. I was having fun here.
#3 - Ran in to Julie Keim here! It's fun seeing her out on the course.
#6 my Fave control - all downhill and you could see for miles ahead in the forest, the rocky area and then the trail to the meadow area. Just beautiful and a fun frolick downhill.
#10 Saw someone pooping near here. Come for the orienteering, stay for the naked asses....
#11 Up the huge huge cliff - I definitely took the "high" road on this control. Cool meadowy area up here. In a pack of exhausted people.
#12 Stayed high and thankfully there was the bare rock to confirm my location
Finish - think I should have gone to left of reentrant down to trail as it was a bit easier going. Could have pushed a little harder here.

What a fun finish location and super day. Orienteering is so much more fun when you do well. :) Truly enjoyed my family's company and would have been up for a 3rd day! Best WP of my O career so far (this is my 3rd one.)

Orienteering 2:00:30 [4] 4.68 mi (25:45 / mi) +1033ft 21:18 / mi
shoes: Salomon Speedcross 3 - Blue

Day 1 - West Point Green Y

Started off poorly by not remembering that my start location was different from the WYOB start and then at the last second realized and had to run to the real start point. Got there with 1 minute to spare, didn't remember to start my watch, and just completely bumbled the first control and was a total idiot. I never realized until the end when other ppl were talking that maybe the map wasn't showing a level of detail I'm used to - just chalked it up to being a poor orienteer. Wasn't reading contours well. Was thankful for some trails in the middle. Eagle's nest was cool but I was pretty over it by then thanks to the death march through blueberry up the hill. I was seriously doubting my ability to finish on the way to 13 - down through all the rocks. But somehow made it back. And lived to tell the tale. :)

Longest I've been able to do it on my own. Learning new things in class helps! Plus I listened to Ian Boccio's Bhakti Messenger CD. A nice addition to home practice.
