orienteer 1:18:48 [3] 8.34 km (9:27 / km) +78m 9:01 / km

Nice day at Leavenworth Bingo. I decided not to sweep the course, and just drew a route based on the numbers on my bingo card.
Had trouble with an un-mapped paved trail near 32 (noticed when it was going in the wrong direction) and was confused again near 35.
Beautiful spring day.

sprint drills 27:30 [3] 1.77 km (15:30 / km)

Went to the track but forgot that duh! the school might be using it. Guess I have to wait another month to use it on a week day.

So I drove back to west campus and did my sprint drills in the parking lot. I took a guess at 100 meters. Didn't need to be exact for tonight's reps. I planned to do 5, but my left hamstring let me know that 4 was enough for this early in the season. I am surprisingly wiped out now, probably due to the heat. Not used to it yet.

4 PM

orienteer 31:53 [3] 2.88 km (11:04 / km) +67m 9:55 / km

Set a short course on campus that deliberately went up and down the hill a few times, to get in the mood for West Point. Campus was surprisingly crowded at 4 pm on a Sunday; I had a hard time finding parking.

I walked the whole time because my legs are really tired from a couple of hard days in a row. But to compensate, I told myself I could never stop walking. Therefore I really concentrated on the route choice from 11 to 12 and didn't notice that I was navigating to the original point 12, and not the one I had overdrawn on this course. One problem with grabbing an old map to design a new course! Also, good reminder of how easy it is to loose concentration in a sprint-like setting.
