Warmup and cooldown

Orienteering race 1:18:42 [4] 9.8 km (8:02 / km)

Georgia Navigator Cup - Day 2 - Blue Classic distance

I apparently started too fast, as 3 of my best 4 splits according to AP split analysis were controls 1,3, and 4 and I was even leading the race after three legs. Oops. I managed another solid race (35 seconds of mistakes according to AP), though felt like my speed and focus faded some at the end. It was a fun course with two distinct parts - one in the usual ridge and valley terrain, and one taking us through the rocky sections that brought back pleasant memories of the 2012 US Champs / Team Trials here.

I ended up 2nd again, 9 minutes behind Greg.

Running 15:00 [2]

Decent warmup, including the course on the model map.

Orienteering race 33:10 [4] 4.9 km (6:46 / km)

Georgia Navigator Cup - Day 1 - Blue Middle distance

Alli and I did split starts so we could take turns watching Inara, so I started first this time. I really enjoyed this middle distance course in fun, fast terrain that was reminiscent of some of the nicer QOC areas - parts of Fountainhead, Oregon Ridge, Turkey Run Ridge.

I felt fairly strong and pretty confident in my orienteering most of the way. AP shows my biggest mistake as being the finish chute... From the split analysis, it looks like I lost a bit of time on 3 (stopping short and not seeing the flag) and 16 (not aggressive enough through the green?), but a very solid race overall. Unlike at QOC events in similar terrain, GAOC tucked the flags in so they were not visible until you were at the feature. I think this was the right call for this high-visibility terrain, but it took me a few controls to get the hang of it.

My best leg was 11 where my route through the field was faster than running around on trails. I finished 43 sec/km behind Greg, which I am very pleased with.

Afterwards, lots of splashing around in puddles with Inara and Lucas while waiting for moms to finish

A tough Peloton workout today. I did a hill climb that certainly made me work (and sweat) hard for the duration of the workout. (Instructor: Jennifer Jacobs)
