orienteering race 1:08:12 [3]

Very disappointing run. Small error on #1 then settled down and had a bunch of good controls. Then misread the contours on #6 and so went high even though I knew there was a flag down low but I was sure it wasn't mine but it was. Then navigated well to within 40 feet of #7 and again misread contours and couldn't figure out what a huge reentrant was doing between me and the control and so clearly I was in the wrong place but where else could I be so I better go back but where else could I be only to find out 5 minutes later that no I was in the right place and the reentrant really was on the map but I wasn't reading the contours right. Not sure if I can blame it on the way the circle and number were drawn or if I just have too few brain cells left. Had no incentive to push the pace on the maze run at the end. Some people seemed to enjoy it; I didn't.

A shame that I am so down about this run because the map and terrain were terrific.

strength & stretching 28:34 [3]

Sprint - Missed my start time and when I went to get a new time, Janet said how about right now and I said sure. Probably not a good idea - I totally hosed the first 3 controls until I finally got my head into it. Also had a new experience - tried to read ahead and then got all confused because when I got to my control I was looking at the next one and so thought the control code was wrong. Teach me to look ahead! :)

orienteering race 38:56 [3]

A good outing. Slow to #1 - I guess the hike up to the start took a lot out of me. I was clean to #2 but I think going low was a better route. I was hesitant early on to #3 since I didn't realize quite how far south I went right out of the control but eventually reason prevailed and I just ran the hilltops until I sorted it out. The next several controls were fun but the sidehill and then the downhill at the end was tough on the knees.

running 30:54 [3] 3.0 mi (10:18 / mi)

3 miles on the drive; not that I was going fast but I felt like I was going even slower than that.

warm up/cool down 25:00 [3]

Forgot to stop my watch when I got home so estimate. Nothing left at the end so just walked the hill home.
