cycling 30:00 [1]

I was biking around on a sprint map that I'm planning to use for a summer evening event. I was out almost 1:30, but with frequent stops to note control locations and mark a few small changes to the map.

I went out in the middle of the day and felt ok until the last 10 minutes or so (which was basically all downhill to get home). Then the heat caught up to me. When I got home the app on my phone said the temp in Lawence was 99F.

Sprint orienteering at Gage Park in Topeka. Fritz set the course - mass start with three loops that were taken in different order. He also set a bunch of controls in a small playground area at the end of each loop. There were 12 controls in the playground, so you had to pay attention to the map and avoid looking at all of the markers all around.

Lots of fun. I wish we'd get better turnout at summer events. Some of the problem is that it was in Topeka and a few of the PTOCers who would normally attend were out of town.

I handled registration and didn't really warm up. I also wasn't really ready at the start and my Garmin hadn't connected. The track picked up at the 4th control on my first loop.

Running felt ok. Compared to my recent warm weather races (sprint at JCCC and NoLaw 5K) I managed the effort better. But, I don't handle heat well at all.

I tested my fancy new headband and it worked well.
