orienteering 33:00 [2] 3.25 km (10:09 / km) +312ft 8:52 / km


Middle distance M-60 (Green-Y). Just not with it. Felt like I'd forgotten how to orienteer, plus not moving well either. (At some point, if you're not orienteering well, is it better to be going slowly, limit the errors?)

Embarrassingly bad route to #1, painfully slow to 2, 3 was ok, stopped for what felt like about 30 seconds a third of the way to 4 to figure out where I might be. 5 was ok, visited another control first before 6, 7 was ok. On a beeline to 8 until I looked up at the road and realized there was an uncrossable fence right in front of me. Very slow over to 9. But then the rest was great!

Intensity level of "2" is probably being charitable. Both physically and mentally.


Here's the map for the M21/F21 sprint.


Took me a while to get into the frame of mind to be at an A meet, both the orienteering and the social. Felt quite out of it. But at least the social improved as the day went on and I had quite a fine time.

Still hungry. That's good. 137 was the goal for this weekend, 135 for the first of May. I can tell it's having an effect because Lyn Walker came up to me and asked me to take my shirt off so she could check me out. :-)
