Orienteering race 48:53 [2] *** 3.5 km (13:58 / km) +99m 12:14 / km

US championships on Cat's Meow map.
The plan was to go as slow as it took to stay in contact with the map. This worked reasonably well as I had no major blunders. The second leg looked like make or break. As soon as I left the trail I lost contact. I just couldn't read the map. But kept on a bearing until I hit the big ridge and was able to relocate once on top. Big sigh of relief when I saw the control. OK after that as the hills and kettles were more distinct.

Orienteering 1:15:00 [2] *** 5.0 km (15:00 / km) +177m 12:45 / km

Model course for US championships.
Hepcat map in a misty rain.
Long trail run to the first control, which was essentially the start of the course. Since I was looking for practice, I left the trail on the way to two at the first junction. Promptly lost contact with the map, fortunately to the right. Several others going into the control from the trail got me going in the right direction. With a little more concentration, I completed the course reasonably well. Missed 11 to the left when I misread the map but relocated quickly on the trail. In spite of the wet weather, this was well worth while.

Elliptical (546i) 2:05:00 [2]

Cross training 2. 60 minutes at level 16. 4990 strides.
Cross training 2. 60 minutes at level 15. 5250 strides.
Cool down. 5 minutes at level 12. Reverse. 480 strides.
It's been a while since I I've been on the elliptical, and I though that level 16 would be tough, but it was OK.

Second time, but I thought it would be better than the Food Channel.
