Orienteering race 54:57 [4] *** 5.5 mi (9:59 / mi) +120m 9:21 / mi
13c

WIOL 5 @ Putney Woods. Starting the year off in style with a big win that jumps me into first for the season and assures no lower than a second place finish. It also extends my three-year/19-race Winter Series streak of podium finishes. A red-letter day, by gum!

I had plenty of small 5-10s hesitations (1, 3, 9, 10) and took a suboptimal route to 2 (better to go up the reentrant?) but nailed the tricky 5-6-7-8 section. My only real error was a true dingus move - leaving 11 and heading for 3 instead of 12, because the 3-4 line went straight through 11. Luckily realized it as I reached the trail junction NW of 11, so wasn't as bad as it could have been. Added a bunch of distance, but as it was all fast-moving trail distance, only ended up costing ~2min.

I thought the course was quite well-designed, particularly the excellent 5-6-7 legs.

Had this playing in my head most of the run.

Easy shake-it-out yog along the CKC. WIOL 5 tomorrow!

Question: If we assembled joint Can-Am teams of the best X North American orienteers and we put them into Jukola/Tiomila:

A. How [poorly] would that team do?
B. Is that even legal?
C. If it is someone should make that happen, because it would be very interesting to see what would happen.

Note
(rest day)

I have revamped my training for the new year, adding plans and goals. Hopefully this will enable me to be less lazy than I was for much of November and December. So far so good. Only five months till team trials.

The latest developments in the world of cuteness:

Standoff cats
Cupboard cats
Drawer cats
Drawer cat
2-in-1 cats
Camouflage cat

My ongoing goal is to turn AP into one big repository of cat pics, just like the rest of the internet.

4 PM

Cycling 49:27 [3] 10.78 mi (13.1 mph) +62m

Distasteful amounts of traffic and red lights. And rain. I took a sloped turn too sharp and my back tire skidded out, so now there is a cool red streak on my knee. Comically, this occurred as I was coasting around in circles in the parking lot, cooling down at the end of the ride.
