Auto-san's battery had died overnight (frustrating), but fortunately, Alec Breton was clutch and gave me a jump. I drove it around a bit, stopped it by a Toyota Dealer, and restarted it without incident. I also bought some jumper cables, but everything seemed ok. Perhaps I left something on last night?

Due to the dead battery, I missed my rendezvous with the Ahlswede crew, so I started on my own a bit later in the day. Naturally, I had a handful of maps of exercises of Harriman in my car (also Pawtuckaway), so I decided to race the Red Middle from the 2010 Team Trials and then saunter around the first half of the Blue Long from the 2010 Team Trials.

Trail run to the start. Pleasant.

Orienteering 31:42 [4] 3.83 km (8:16 / km) +104m 7:17 / km

2010 Team Trials Red Middle, no flags. A dusting of 1 cm of snow was everywhere. I missed 6 badly by making a parallel error on an unmapped marsh, and I missed 15 by confusing a bare rock and clearing. I'll post a QR after the weekend. My intention was to run fast, with three goals: (1) be aggressive, (2) read ahead, and (3) simplify. The aggression was key, as especially when I'm tired, I tend to stop short of the control when I get confused rather than running all the way to the center of the circle. While on occasion, stopping short corrects errors, more often, I hesitate unnecessarily when I'm actually on the correct path.

A fun outing.
