Adventure Race race (Sprint) 2:58:51 [4] 19.74 mi (9:04 / mi)

Sprint distance Backyard Challenge Adventure race in Monument. Joined up with Maiya's team who were one person short. We think we won by a good margin.

Run: 5.16 miles.
Bike: 6.07 miles
Trek: 2.29 miles
Bike: 6.22 miles

Total 19.74 miles

I did a flying over the handlebars, endo onto a hardpacked gravel road during the last bike section. I landed on my jaw and helmet. My front tire got sucked into a patch of mud so soft it could have been quicksand had it been deeper, which stopped the tire but not me, sending me flying. I haven't done that in a while.

spiked:3/5c shoes: VJ Inegrators

Orienteering race 1:56:23 [5] ***** 8.1 km (14:22 / km) +951ft 12:11 / km
spiked:17/18c shoes: VJ Inegrators

A much much better run. Only made one small error but when I corrected I found the control right away! I still had no energy, speed, stamina or strength while running this course.

If I'd felt like I'd been able to run fast the whole way, or even for a little ways, I'd consider this a good race.

Event: HVO A-Meet
 

Trail Run warm up/down 20:00 [2] 1.8 km (11:07 / km)
shoes: VJ Inegrators

Orienteering race 2:27:56 [5] ***** 8.5 km (17:24 / km) +984ft 14:48 / km
spiked:15/17c shoes: VJ Inegrators

A bad run, actually one bad mistake. One of those two controls I didn't spike cost me over 20 minutes!!

I navigated to the control circle perfectly, I was even inside the control circle, but just missed seeing the control flag. So, instead of starting to search for the flag, I began to try to relocate, and relocating in Harriman is no easy feat. That was my mistake, I should have stayed put because I knew I was in the correct place. Instead I walked about and ended up right back where I started, at which point I found the marker. Aaarrrggghhhh!!!

After that I had little energy to carry me through the rest of the course.
