Orienteering race 16:44  2.4 km (6:58 / km) +60m 6:12 / km
US Team Trials - Sprint - Blue
The highlight of the Sprint (from my perspective) was that I was ahead of nate for 9 controls (which meant disaster for him, unfortunately). He did beat me by about 2.5 minutes, despite my early lead.
I was somewhat clean early, but took a nasty spill near C8, drawing blood on my hand. Another fall shortly afterward put some nice tears (as in rips, not crying!) in my map (why no map bags???), which happened to avoid hitting the remaining course. I blew 10 pretty badly, cutting down from the field too early, and not being able to differentiate the mapped rock features, loss was at least 40 seconds. I managed to blow by the trail that was the signal to leave the path for C11, and lost over 30 seconds there as well. I then started to run out of gas, so by the time C16 came along, with a tough climb, I was quite slow, and missed the shortcut to boot. I did recover on the downhill and got to and from the go control pretty quickly, with only 6 guys beating me by more than 2 seconds.
Running warm up/down 6:00  0.67 mi (9:00 / mi)
Just a brief w/up before the Sprint, finished with a couple of good strides, so I would be ready to go.
No w/dn to speak of. Dumb.
