Running warm up/down 2:07 [2] 0.24 mi (8:39 / mi) +10m 7:40 / mi

Orienteering 1:00:34 [3] 4.84 mi (12:31 / mi) +102m 11:45 / mi

Went out to Estabrook to rerun the red course that Pelle set last spring. I wanted to get some more time in the woods as well as getting more familiar with Estabrook as preperation for mapping it.

About 5 minutes faster than last time. Part of it was that I wasn't really doing much of mistakes, but I was also generally faster. I think I am in better shape now than half-year ago. That was five minutes faster going a fairly easy pace compared with going hard that last time I ran it during the meet.

It is not the most challenging course, but still a fun run. The only challenge is that the area around five was mostly flooded, and I had a hard time deciding what rock was the control point. Decided not to sweat it and moved on.


Running warm up/down 2:20 [2] 0.26 mi (8:54 / mi)

Trail Running 1:04:29 [4] 7.33 mi (8:48 / mi) +216m 8:04 / mi

I had planned on a long run, but the temperature got below freezing after some rain so the streets were slippery. I put on my orienteering shoes instead, and went for some running on large trails. A fairly hilly course.

Running warm up/down 4:09 [3] 0.47 mi (8:47 / mi) +23m 7:38 / mi

Orienteering 54:20 [3] 3.5 mi (15:31 / mi) +97m 14:18 / mi

Went out for some orienteering. My dad was setting courses with another club member for a event that was cancelled. Good oppurtinity for some training though, since in theory all the controls had been marked with a small paper tag (they don't use streamers in this country). I went out on the longest one of them (this was for a middle distance event). Spent some extra time out there trying to find the little tags. The biggest time lost:

11: Really shallow reentrent.Followed the wrong contour first, but when I doubled back, I must have gone right by the control point. Saw the little tag the second time though.
16: About 10 diffirent boulders lined up, and trying to find the tag between two of them, but there was no tag to be found.

Fairly slow moving terrain. The marshes were really wet, and most of the area is covered by thick moss over a layer of boulders.

Running 7:59 [3] 0.92 mi (8:41 / mi) +39m 7:40 / mi

Ran back to where my mom and dad were helping my wife finding her way around an orienteering course.

Walking 27:34 [2] 1.01 mi (27:18 / mi) +10m 26:29 / mi

Walking back to the car doing a map hike.
