run/walk 30:00 [2] 3.62 km (8:18 / km) +38m 7:53 / km

We're still having unseasonably warm weather. I enjoyed getting out of the house while there was bit of light left, and moved around on west campus. Being outside was nice, but the moving felt blah. I walked more than I planned.

orienteer 56:57 [2] 2.77 km (20:35 / km) +63m 18:29 / km

I'm a glutton for punishment, so I decided to practice moving through thick vegetation. I drew a control picking course. Sometimes I tried to keep an exact straight line, no matter what the vegetation was like. Other times, I used rough compass to pick out a feature in the distance, then allowed myself to veer around bad vegetation to get there. Took it slow and easy today.

I'm surprised that my GPS track shows that I missed 2. It was an obvious hill.
There is definitely an open area where I went to 6. Again, it was a miss, and that helps explain why I had to correct on the trail bend mid way to 7.
Spiked 11.
12 was a deliberate choice: there was a family using the shelter, and they had a dog with them. I didn't feel like dealing with that, so I skipped it, went back down the trail and approached 13 from a different way.
Slight miss on 16
Decided to stop at 17 (after I had been out an hour)

run/walk 20:00 [3]

After orienteering, I ran on the trails to get back to the car

orienteer 1:11:51 [3] 6.2 km (11:35 / km) +117m 10:35 / km

PTOC event at Burr Oaks. The long course was definitely for runners, with many trail options. However, there were also good route choices. I did fairly well, only some minor bobbles. I concentrated on pushing through the woods, at a fast walk if I couldn't always run. Looking at my GPS track, though, I see that I was "pushed around" by the vegetation and often got off line when the woods got thicker. Need to work on pushing through the tough stuff. In the end, I was under 12 min/k, which is good for me.

Nice day, 8C and sunny. Better yet, Mike and I carpooled with Sandy, so I got to spend 2 hours in the car with some of my favorite people.
