ahr:136 max:164

Down for orienteering at sessions Woods. Courses were good, woods pretty open, lots of unmapped bike trails.

Ran with three speedy runners who stopped at each control to orient their maps and pick a route, then took off very fast, doing well for beginners. Seesawed back and forth until I royally botched 6, hitting the stone wall and turning the wrong way, then chasing off down another wall until I caught a trail crossing and relocated. 5 min lost on that error.

Felt good and remembered to try and pick up the pace at times.
11 AM

O - competition race (Orange) 47:26 [0] 4.11 km (11:32 / km) +136m 9:54 / km
ahr:131 max:167

went back out on the orange course. Confused at the first control because the code was wrong and the flag was right next to a pretty distinct trail. Looked around a little and decided, yes it was the control spot even those things were wrong. Then realized I still had the green clue sheet on my wrist and the code on the map matched that on the flag. The trail was still nowhere to be seen on the map. Lost 1-1/2 min on that.

Took a hard fall just before 2 and thought I cracked a rib, but not that bad. Got R going thru the thick vegetation to 4 and had to correct by 100 m when I bounced off the trail.

Still felt okay at the end.
