DVOA Hay Creek - Green
I was a little tentative going back here after last summer's event. In fact, I woke up thinking that I hate Hay Creek (I think what I really meant is that I hate summer orienteering!) Redemption for me and the map thanks to Erik's nice courses (and the month of March.)
My left calf hurt yesterday, so I rested it, and still hurt this morning, but I felt a big knot in it in the shower and massaged it out some. It was better, though not perfect, but didn't hurt as long as I kept moving.
Beautiful open woods. Pretty much bang on into every control, although sometimes I took around rather than through routes on the longer legs. (Took trails from 8 to 9, could see the big rocky hilltop from the trail W of it. 10-11 I took right hand route on the trail South and then attacked from the dot knoll on the hilltop South of the control. Arrived there at the same time as the people who had been at 9/10 with me and cut through the woods.)
Not sure about the weight... I couldn't believe that 5.5 pounds came off in two days, but I checked it again in the bathroom and then moved the scale to another room in case there was a gravitational anomaly in there. The same all three times. Or maybe the battery is just dying.
