Today was listening to Regina Spektor's Fidelity and On the Radio.

Orienteering race (A-meet) 2:37:29 [2] ***** 10.1 km (15:36 / km) +1427ft 12:50 / km
ahr:119 max:182 spiked:16/22c shoes: VJ Falcon studs #1

West Point meet, blue long course. Once again, it took the first three controls for me to get into the map. The long leg from 2 to 3 was particularly tough, psychologically, physically and navigationally. It seems that, given a sufficient level of forest-running and navigational fitness, the straight, somewhat leftward route would have been best. The flatter, less slanted rightward route was probably more optimal for me on this day. I executed the latter route choice, though I did so quite hesitantly. Given my current level of navigational fitness, I should have kept it simple and just aimed straight for the characteristic bend in the trail on the right and the crossing of that trail with the creek - then navigated up the creek to the control. The remaining, smaller errors on latter controls resulted from insufficiently careful navigation from attack areas.

West Point meet. Physically I felt stronger than ever before at this event. This was significantly offset by the fact that I hadn't much practiced navigation in complex terrain since the fall of 2015.

West Point A-meet, blue middle course. Didn't get into the map until the third control. Also, found 7 before finding 6. Looks like the combined navigational errors cost me about 12 minutes, which was about 30% of error-free time.

Orienteering race (A-meet) 22:13 [4] ** 3.0 km (7:24 / km) +262ft 6:32 / km
ahr:160 max:190 spiked:22/23c shoes: VJ Sticky

West Point meet, red/blue sprint course. This was fun and mostly error-free. I did find 6 before 5. Lost a place to Hans from DontGetLost between 10 and 11 and a place to Kevin from QOC between 14 and 15, both times due to running through thicker vegetation. In the former case, I had little choice other than to run through the relatively thick vegetation. In the latter case, I probably would have done better if I had gone around on paths.

The general mantra for this weekend is to always know where I am on the map. The mantra for the middle race tomorrow is to see the contours through the rocks. The mantra for the sprint is to see the thick black lines that we cannot cross. The mantra for the long race on Sunday is to avoid the green.

change in routine slows me down unnecessarily, no matter how much I prepare for the change in advance. for instance, I was significantly slower than usual today due to the fact that I tried to do the long run in the morning instead of the afternoon, even though I took the day off to prepare for this change yesterday. I should stick to the morning schedule in order to stay cool through the summer, though.

three sets of the form. first two - slowly, with some mistakes. the last set quicker, no mistakes.

(rest day)

I should transition to a morning running schedule. This will help me stay cool through the summer.
