Day 2 Green Course at Huntington. Really fine woods and an excellent course. I really felt into it from the start. Got a little tired toward the end, but overall felt like I did well. Looking back, I think I would have been faster if I took more trail options. Particularly going from 6 to 7 I got bogged down with a little glasses fog and trying to read too much along the way, skirting marshes and finding trail segments, not making too much forward progress. Looking at it now, there was a very serviceable trail option to the right, going back through the finish, which would have been kind of fun. A very slight boom at the end, maybe 30 seconds, maybe less. Otherwise finding things well, if not too fast and not always the best route. Excellent course and an excellent meet. We were back so early and it was so cold, that we just went home. Not much energy the rest of the day. Mostly just read a book. Unusual for me, particularly on a sunny day, but too cold to tempt me into some yard work project.

Orienteering race 42:10 [3] *** 3.1 km (13:36 / km)
spiked:7/10c shoes: 2009 Yellow NB 840s

Green Y middle course at WCOC meet. George thought men were on Y (as they were for Red) and since I was an early starter it hadn't been straightened out yet. Woods very nice and mostly orienteered well, but a couple of bad legs: Parallel error on #1 took me to wrong hilltop. Seemed a bit far, but I was making things line up in my mind until I hit the trail beyond #2. Saw #2 on the way back which made the second leg easy. Then things were going really well until glasses started to fog near #8. Minor boom there as I got sucked off right to another larger apparently unmapped rock, but that was only a few seconds. Fog really set in on #9, where I was on line and almost there and then couldn't see any of the detail along the final hillside, so back and forth hunting for it for 6 minutes! Lost the glasses in a tree on the way to #10. Good that I had a streamer on them or I wouldn't have found them. Nice course. Need to work on vision correction. I ditched the contact last weekend because I wasn't seeing well and my eye was burning. Eye still feels a little sensitive.
