Orienteering race 42:51 [4] *** 5.3 km (8:05 / km) +165m 7:00 / km
shoes: VJ - Studs

DVOA local meet at Mt.Misery, Valley Forge, PA. Ran a red course reasonably well, but made a couple of mistakes on "controls in the middle of the woods", losing about 3:30 during the course, which is a little too much for not overly complex terrain. Wyatt got me by 2 minutes with a nice run.


With my first race at WOC two weeks to go, I feel like I am in good, though not great, shape. I am fairly happy with my map reading, precise navigation, and speed. I am fairly unhappy with my map reading when tired, strength on uphills, and endurance. Clearly, these are not things I can fix in two weeks, but it's good to know what your strengths and weaknesses are and what you have to work on in the future. I will leave for Japan on Thursday and will consider that the beginning of the tapering.
