Orienteering race 1:57:16 [5] 9.47 mi (12:23 / mi)
shoes: Topo Terraventure

French Creek Score-O.

No map preview, so I had to plan on the fly. I was happy with my route choice, as I was planning to clear the course. Had I known that I would be dropping, I would have done a few things differently and would have ended with 15-20 more points. Still, I'm not too upset about it.

I struggle with 50 and ended up skipping it and 59. A park ranger and some no trespassing signs messed me up entering 62, but i found it just fine. My errors around 50 caught up with me though, as I was low on time and at the furthest control. I dropped 61 and made my way to 63 (I thought it read 53, but oh well...). Some thick brush and mud that stole my shoe got me off track, and I ended up at 55 after following the stream the wrong way. At that point, I had to start bailing, so I ended up also leaving 58 and 57 to work my way back on roads. I ended up leaving 67; it was easy but just a bit too far out of the way. I also left 42, but I think it would have been very close and I may have been able to grab it.

My score wasn't impressive because of the points that I dropped (all 5s and 6s with one 4) but I'm happy with my route choice and speed. If I were to do it differently, I would skip 48 and 45 to start and save them for any extra time at the end.

Run 38:09 [3] 4.68 mi (8:09 / mi)
shoes: Topo Terraventure

First after school run since soccer ended. Nice smooth work at Cheslen. Temps in the low 70s made for a perfect day. Legs felt good and the tendinitis in the left knee had no real issue at all.
