Orienteering 18:14 [3] 1.18 mi (15:27 / mi) +27m 14:25 / mi
2c shoes: Salomon Speedcross 4 - Navy

Did the other side of the road practice controls. Unfortunately they had taken the flags down. I only found 2/5 and got really confused on the rest, but at least I got this out of my system before the race!

Orienteering race 2:15:36 [4] **** 11.1 mi (12:13 / mi) +275m 11:21 / mi
24c shoes: Salomon Speedcross 4 - Navy

Quantico long blue
14.2k, 435m

This was a great long course! A good mix of long legs with lots of choices. It went really well for me, I kept up a running pace better than maybe ever before, especially for a course this long. I also didn’t really have any navigation errors, just a few in optimum route choices.

2-3 felt like it took forever
4-5, also felt very long and slow. I didn’t have a solid plan until about halfway thru the leg, so it probably could have been better. At one point I was running on a trail with obstacles and found myself high stepping barbed wire!
9 was on a really cool blown up airplane impeller!
10-11 I had glanced at ahead of time and saw how long it was. There was a fairly direct trail option but it looked confusing and lots of up and down. I opted for the easier longer option around on the roads, curious to see how it stacks up. At this point I was 1:24 in and not even halfway on controls!
Really started fading at about 17, a second gu would have been nice.
19 was almost a disaster as I realized I was basically wandering, and it was the same area I had a mistake in yesterday. Luckily I realized it while I had just enough map contact to slow down and correct without too much lost time.
Just tried to keep up a slow jog thru the last 4, and was able to. Really happy with this run!

Practice course near our campsite
10 AM

Orienteering race 49:42 [4] 4.06 mi (12:14 / mi) +32m 11:57 / mi
16c shoes: Salomon Speedcross 4 - Navy

Quantico middle blue
5.4km 80 m

I went out a little to fast which of course led to botching 1. I wasn’t quite as far N as I thought so I turned around and backtracked thinking I had passed it. I still tried to keep up my pace for the rest of the course, which went better but still led to a lot of small errors in the circle. Good to push physically but I need to improve my map reading to reduce errors.

We had been to this map 1.5 years ago, but this section was a little more scrubby from recent rain and wind. Still better than woods we have in eastern Pa!

We got some entertainment watching cars attempting to pull out of the very muddy arena parking while enjoying French fries from a food truck! Really fun set up!
3 PM

Orienteering race 20:09 [4] 2.03 mi (9:56 / mi) +25m 9:33 / mi
12c shoes: Salomon Speedcross 4 - Navy

Quantico relay
3km 55m

Teamed up with Brooke M. And Syd for a three point team for the relay. I was the anchor leg. I started off with two fast juniors and kept them in my sights for the first half. I was pretty gassed by then so I slowed down a bit. Super fun to be going so fast in such nice woods!
