Event: QOC Occoquan

Orienteering race 1:21:10 [4] 6.5 km (12:29 / km)
shoes: Icebug Gryllo

QOC Occoquan Red. The map was great, much improved over the debut event. The course was a classic distance but a middle density, and the terrain supported the tight format surprisingly well. I made significant mistakes on 12 and 19. On 12, I went up the creek to the place where it turned north, then attempted to run up the next reentrant to the flat area above, but it turned out I went up too far south. I hit the big reentrant by the road a long way south of the control and spent some time figuring it out. On 19, I can't exactly say, but I was off on my bearing and pace count, went way too far, hit the shooting stand (looked for it on the map but still assumed I was south of the control) and then the reentrant with 13 in it. OK, I recognized that, and then backtracked no problem, but damage done. Good fun, nice course. In retrospect, I was clearly not thinking as well towards the end of the event. Whether due to physical tiredness or mental fatigue I can't say.

After the event I met a guy who advertised a guitar for sale on Craigslist, this side of Manassas, not far from Occoquan. Unbelievable guitar at a bargain price, a Gibson Explorer '76 reissue from a few years back. I paid what he asked and took the thing home. Basically unused in mint condition.

Road running 32:30 [3] 3.7 mi (8:47 / mi)
shoes: Adrenaline 2

On the dog walk this morning it was pretty cold, with a brisk wind, but by noon the wind was down and the sun was out. Nice day. Events have conspired against my running the last couple of days and it was good to get out.
