6 AM

Running (Road) 30:00 [2]
(rest day) shoes: Neo33

Easy jog round the hood. Legs actually felt OK, which was quite a surprise given how bad they felt yesterday morning.

Running (Road) 31:00 [2]
shoes: MT110

Easy out and back on College Ave. Super stiff from yesterday, but felt OK after a mile or so.
9 AM

Terrain (Grass) 25:00 [2] *
shoes: Oroc 280 (old)

Warmup.

Orienteering race (Woods) 28:15 [5] *** 3.3 km (8:34 / km) +200m 6:34 / km
shoes: Oroc 280 (old)

Pig Middle Green at Ransburg Scout Camp (1:10). Rocked this one. A couple minor errors and one nutty route choice for maybe a minute lost total. I don't think it's realistic for me to hope for any better than that, especially when running full on. Was worried I wouldn't be able to move well, but once on the clock, the legs were there. No thick stuff to speak of, so the fact that my back was super stiff wasn't really an issue (no ducking under stuff). First on Green by a couple minutes.

Warmdown with Bill.

Orienteering (Woods) 28:00 [1] *
shoes: Oroc 280 (old)

Shadowing Yaya. Definitely her best ever on a course that was happily free of any Yellow/Orange level navigation. Made for a happy ride home.

Warmup.

Orienteering race (Woods) 1:19:11 [5] *** 7.1 km (11:09 / km) +450m 8:28 / km
16c shoes: Oroc 280 (old)

Pig Long Green at Yellowwood State Forest (1:10). No good excuses here; just blew it on a course that was tailor made for me. Lots of climb, moderately thick veg in spots, but never heavy, good footing. Ran well, but gave the game away around 6. Parallel error going in and a horrific route choice going out for a total of seven minutes lost. Still managed second on course (1st M50), which just goes to show what a great opportunity was squandered.

Another full set of marks to OCIN for a fine course on a good map.

Orienteering (Woods) 1:03:00 [1] **

Shadowing Yaya on White.

Oooh, about that fine course/map thing, not so much on this one. Using an indistinct trail for a White course is dicey, but using an indistinct trail that doesn't even exist is inexcusable. Yaya did manage to pull it together after spending about five minutes searching the forest for something that resemebled a pathway, but I really don't understand why they didn't simply streamer the leg down to #5. Maybe they thought they had (there were a few tapes over some deadfall and another set near the actual control, but nothing that a White course competitor would likely put together). Anyway, aside from #5 (and then going straight to #7 because it was visible from 5 and connected by a ditch that was far more distinct than the "trail" she had been on), Yaya did fine and did manage to stop crying by #9.

Easy jog round the hood.

Terrain (Grass) 25:00 [2] *
shoes: MT110

A rather scattered warmup. Finally got my head together just before the race.

Orienteering race (Park) 20:35 [4] *** 2.9 km (7:06 / km) +80m 6:14 / km
24c shoes: MT110

... but not enough to actually run well. Pig Sprint Red at IU (1:4). Only one serious error (misread the clue for #10 and spent about 20 seconds looking for the bag while I was standing only a few meters from it), but only holding it together by moving slower than I should have. 14th on Red, 3rd M45.

Despite the lackluster result, this was a really fun event: great venue, great course, great organization.
5 PM

Orienteering (Park) 33:00 [1] ** 1.7 km (19:25 / km)
17c shoes: MT110

Shadowing Yaya. She got clobbered in the results because she walked whereas most of the other kids ran, but her nav was quite good. One mistake that could have got quite ugly, but she caught and corrected it herself. She decided that she really likes sprint maps.

6 AM

Running (Road) 58:00 [2]
shoes: Neo33

Easy jog round the hood. Toes will be fine and legs are basically back, though I'm not going to throw anything hard at them until this weekend.
4 PM

Terrain (Mix) 2:06:00 [2] **
shoes: Speedstar 5

Home via CC Lake. Ran the new bit of singletrack. Looks like GORC is one workday away from completing the loop; about 100m of benching and 500m of clearing. Might be time to seriously pursue putting on a trail race here.
