orienteering race 57:08 [4] 6.4 km (8:56 / km)

GreenY course at FLO event. Good race but got sloppy leaving two controls. One was minor, hitting a trail further south than I intended so I took the trail route to the spectator control instead of going straight. But the other could have been disastrous. I crossed a trail, checked for the bend which I could see and continued on. And hit another trail which I was definitely not expecting. Totally flummoxed I slowed down and realized I had been heading at right angles to my intended direction and the trail went the way I wanted to be going. So I started running down the trail. I had been pretty much just going straight to every control and had never even noticed that this trail was there since it wasn't the most direct route and the trails in general didn't give you any better running than through the woods. I figured out what I had done pretty quickly though and the trail was actually pretty good footing and I knew where I was when I left the trail and went right into the control. So a small time loss but not too bad and pretty much nailed everything else. Woods were a bit thicker and my legs were a bit more tired so harder to run.


Excellent time in Florida. Fun terrain, good courses, good people.

orienteering race 33:42 [4] 4.3 km (7:50 / km)

Green course at the FLO event. Good race. A little tentative to the first control and an unintentional curvy route to #3 (hmm...why is there a reentrant over to my should be in front of me...guess I need to be over there...) but pretty solid otherwise; it helped having been out on the sprint course. Lost a little steam near the end but was able to make myself keep pushing. Found the terrain really, really friendly - the lack of rocks and climb meant I could push the running without worrying about my knees or ankles.

orienteering race 25:10 [4] 2.9 km (8:41 / km)

Sprint at the FLO event. Sloppy in places - had several "hook" routes. Never out of contact, just couldn't seem to run straight! Went out after most people were done: the advantage was that I didn't get distracted by anyone but I didn't get any of the advantages of seeing other people either.

running 47:30 [3] 5.0 mi (9:30 / mi)

TNT. Ran with Dasha. Made her do all the talking so I could keep up.

warm up/cool down 21:30 [3]

Jogged down to the drive and then walked/jogged back up. I guess it adds another mile and a half total.
