Middle Brown A at St Patricks Co Park+ starting and ending in IN but crossing into MI for the first 2 controls. 2.6 km/35m nominal. 1:10000 map, 2.5m contours (I think).
Overcast day turned to light showers as i jogged to the start, which only picked up as I ran. Temp about 50 felt colder with the rain.
Found everything right where I looked for it though i took a less than efficient route 9-10. Tripped and fell (again) heading into 7.... Hit the stream S of 10 in the middle of the steep sides and chose to run around on the right side, where there was a control.
12th overall on the course, almost 8 minutes back of Janet F., but 18 seconds ahead of Linda who said she had trouble on 4 and 6.
Shoulder PT with more strengthening exercises again today

Jog/walk at Whitehall Parkway. Remembered my heart rate strap but forgot my Garmin watch, so no track. Probably only went half Glen's distance anyway. Did a hill interval (yes, just one) at the end...1:50 up, 1:15 down.

HVO/DVOA dual meet at Wanaque Ridge near Wanaque, NJ. Paul Bennett set the courses on a very old and vague map (part of the old Ringwood map used once for an A meet before I-287 split it).
Seemed steep and slightly long for a Brown course (nominally 3.2 km, 125m), 1:10000, so I had to do a bit of adjusting ("go a bit farther") after having had 1:7500 maps the previous day.
Did fine on 1 and 2 but then didn't take the optimum route to 3 involving getting close to it on a trail, and missed and wandered for a bit trying to make sense of the hills which weren't mapped as I would expect (ie, I had trouble adjusting to the map), but eventually saw another competitor near the flag. Fine to 4 and 5 but didn't go far enough to 6, checked other large boulders (some not on the map) and eventually relocated from the boulder cluster near the trail above it.
Left 6 hoping to catch the proper trail toward 7 but was off just to the left and realized I was on another trail before arriving at the pipeline cut, and then reattacked. A bit low to 8, but figured out 9 which several of us thought was on rocks elsewhere in the circle than the center. Good execution to the rest, though slowed down by rocky ground.
Not sure where I stand as their results display wasn't working. We'll see soon, I'm sure.
