Orienteering (Wyoming day 2) 1:12:18 [3] *** 8.1 km (8:56 / km) +265m 7:40 / km
ahr:134 max:150 spiked:18/19c slept:7.0 shoes: addidas2016

Nice cooler day (upper 60's). map was more open than previous days. decided to wear my running shoes instead of orienteering shoes. They slipped on the side hill running but were better in the open areas.
Overall had a good but slow run. The only control I messed up on was #9. I was high and went to far by a bit and had to come back. I tried to run but was to tired. I had to walk a lot more than I should have.
I wanted the fastest time to #1 but was tied for 4th fastest of all courses.
10-11: i went east to avoid the climb.
11-12: went through sage to marsh, ran cow path along marsh.
12-13: went north to the marsh hoping for cow path. It was there but was more overgrown so couldn't run hard down it..

Orienteering (wyoming) 1:14:00 [3] *** 8.2 km (9:01 / km)
ahr:137 max:151 spiked:15/18c shoes: Falcons 2018

Felt better today lung wise. Still not up to normal. Today the plan was to keep moving (not necessarily fast but to keep moving) and be clean.
Well, I couldn't keep moving and still had to walk a bunch. I was generally clean. I think most of my problems were hitting things hidden under the control circles/lines which through me off. Each time it caused me to pull up short.
Other than the circle issues, I liked the courses. I thought I did well but the faster people still outran me (when they were not making mistakes). This doesn't bode well for the remaining two courses as I am tired now.

Orienteering race (middle) 39:22 [4] *** 4.6 km (8:33 / km)
ahr:137 max:152 25c shoes: Falcons 2018

Middle Distance, Wyoming, Granite Planite.
I wanted this to be a good hard run as it was short and I hoped I could last for the distance. While I thought I was moving hard I guess I just wasn't moving that fast. Several controls I was off to the right and had to make some major adjustments. I lost substantial time on #11 and #12. I still thought I had done ok but looking at the results I just wasn't that fast.

Orienteering (wyoming) 1:03:03 [3] ** 6.8 km (9:16 / km)
ahr:138 max:150 shoes: addidas2016

one may cowboy relay. Everyone does multiple loops but the loops are in different order except the last one which everyone does the same.
I felt better lung/altitude wise today. I tried to keep a more even pace and keep moving but I still had to walk the uphills.
I was with Bill Cusworth much of the course even though we did the loops differently there were several common controls and I kept seeing Bill. He started just in front of me on the final loop and we ran together for awhile taking slightly different lines. He pulled up short one control and I got ahead of him only to then screw up the very next control and he passed me back. I finished 4th.

Orienteering (Wyoming) 54:47 [3] ** 7.7 km (7:07 / km)
spiked:14/14c shoes: O icebugs 2015

Out in Wyoming for week of orienteering. Today was just a fun run. Red course 7.7 K in wide open terrain. To make it easier it was a mass start. I didn't warm up any other than stretching. I guess I should have. My goal was to take it easy and get use to the altittude. I didn't want to burn out before the real orienteering starts later in the week.
I started off slow going up hill. I was one of the fastest out of the start so was just behind the leaders. They were running faster which was ok since I was taking it slow. I didn't get to far up the hill until I couldn't breathe and I was getting light headed. Not a good start. I stopped jogging and started walking. People were passing me left and right. I went from the front group to way back real quick.
The orienteering was very easy, especially with a line of people to follow. Eventually my body adjusted and I was just out of breath and not light headed. I proceeded to jog the down hills and walk most of the uphills. I was also passing back the people who passed me earlier. I still finished far back but was able to keep moving by the end. I had forgotten how dry the air is and my lungs are all dried out.
