At Logan, enjoying my last set of oysters this weekend (3 x 6, starting Friday.) And a large Sam Adams, and reflecting on the weekend.

A great one. Very content right now.

Had some OK orienteering, some good orienteering, and some disappointing orienteering. But, it was really great to hang out with all my orienteering friends. And Ian.

My work situation has not allowed me to train enough to be competitive, but I have trained enough to not embarrass myself. I would like to train more, but unfortunately, cannot count on that.

In any case, this weekend was great. Next weekend CSU will be my enemy, but this weekend, and at all other times, they are my friends. They did a great job. Every minute of orienteering was so fun, so satisfying. And the environment/feel was great.


Orienteering race 1:34:37 [4] **** 12.25 km (7:43 / km)
shoes: October 2010 Oroc 280

US Long Championships.

It felt like a good race, but I got tired. The tiredness had more of an impact on my orienteering than my running. While it slowed as well, the most pronounced effect was that the orienteering felt much harder to me in the second half, and I was full of hesitations and small errors.

Orienteering warm up/down 20:00 [2] ***
shoes: October 2010 Oroc 280

Warmed up on the model map and the trails. Worked on agility.

Orienteering race 40:39 [4] **** 4.84 km (8:24 / km)
shoes: October 2010 Oroc 280

US Middle Championships.

Really good, but not great race. Although, in retrospect the lines I took were really good, and in some cases I got lucky. Most of the time I lost was in the control circles. 2 and 14 were poor. But, otherwise, I was moving well.

Run warm up/down 15:00 [2]
shoes: October 2010 Oroc 280

Wamup before the sprint. Plotted my route around the finish complex.

Orienteering race 19:31 [4] 2.85 km (6:51 / km)
shoes: October 2010 Oroc 280

US Sprint Championships.

Would have been satisfied with this, but lost 30 seconds on number 4. The rest of the course was OK. No top end speed, but I got around generally OK.

Probably 1 minute of mistakes overall.
