Orienteering race 1:22:51 [5] 6.3 km (13:09 / km) +175m 11:33 / km
shoes: Icebug olx 2nd

DVOA French Creek North - Red. This event was unexpectedly fine. Greg and I arrived early (only a 2 hour drive!) and went out early, before the mass start. The course was forked, but it was just as interesting doing it solo as it would have been in a crowd. The day was getting hot, but it was cool in the forest, with a bit of a breeze. The vegetation was dense but not annoying.

I've had so much trouble with this terrain in the past, it was such a pleasure to be navigating confidently with no mistakes. But slow, certainly, in places, when collecting features were not immediately visible and confidence began to leak away, but things always straightened themselves out and controls appeared right where they should have been. Very satisfying.

Orienteering 1:03:39 [3] 10.0 km (6:22 / km)
shoes: Roclite 280-2015

Training at Patuxent. Nice change of pace by Amy L., a trail run with the possibility of shortcuts, and a few tricky trail junctions, all of which I ran right by on the first pass. I wasted a fair amount of time this way, maybe 5 minutes or more. I stayed on the trail except where we had to get off to pick up a control.

After a week off, my achilles seems back to normal. There's still a little soreness just in front of the heel, which I'm pretty sure was a stone bruise. Seems like the two things happened at the same time. Everything's connected right there.
