Bridle Trails + Watershed loop. Calves in considerable distress when I woke up this morning, probably due to the steep downhill running yesterday plus not stretching afterward. Took three or four painful miles for them to loosen up at all.
The result of yesterday's race has had dramatic (and in my personal opinion disastrous) consequences, as #TeamJourdan has come from behind at the last possible strike:
Over 24 races and 14+ hours of orienteering in calendar year 2015, we're separated by 93 seconds (0.18%). As there will be no more head-to-head races this year, the standings appear to be final; however the #TeamWill legal team is swiftly readying an appeal to the Tribunal Arbitral du Sport
in Lausanne based on the position that the first 14 controls of this
race should be counted. A flimsy argument with little chance of success, to be sure. Looks like I'm buying the beers.
