Orienteering race 53:05  *** 6.43 km (8:15 / km) +161m 7:20 / km
Winter Series 7, Fire Mountain. Goals were:
1. Be physically able to warm up and start
Ignore possible knee pain Be attentive to possible knee pain
3. Complete the course without knee pain
4. Run/navigate/find controls etc etc.
Accomplished 1 and 2, mostly accomplished 3, though I did feel some twinges at times, usually while running downhill on trails. Also eventually accomplished 4 I suppose, in a haphazardly roundabout sort of way. Lost several minutes on 10, a minute or two on 12, bad route choice to 7, assorted other bobbles. Excellent course design by J and C!
Felt like total garbage physically and had zero speed in my legs, but that's to be expected after no running and very little exercise at all for two weeks. Not a good lead-up to Sprint Camp :/ but at least it's looking like I'll be able to participate?
