Orienteering race 1:50:00 [3] ***

B-meet at "the ARK" north of Wakefield. Very nice area. Would be nice to have a proper map. This map was sketchy with 10m contours and not much details. I had an OK race to the 8th control, but made a mistake on 9th and could not relocate on the featureless area so bailed after about -20min. Even getting out to a couple of major trails I could not find where I was until it lead to the only lake on the map. At that point I was just jogging home even though there were three controls almost within reach from the trail.

Orienteering (course setting) 2:30:00 [1] ***

Beautiful day at the Barrens. Started hanging ribbons in the far east area and a few map updates. A couple of control spots had to change as either feature wasn't clear or not happy with the map. One tricky area is missing some cliffs and boulders. Haven't decided if I should update the map or move the control. By the way it is already 4 cliffs in the control ring :)
At one spot at a pond there is a nice canoe, and the grass was moved to make a nice path! Not enough to mark it as a path on the map though, but I removed the green from the map in this spot.

Orienteering 1:05:00 [1]

O-training fro Teutsch's house. Distance estimation on a map with only area around the controls visible. The orienteering in between controls was simple, mostly trails. I was within 10-15% except a few legs where I was really off.

Running 1:15:00 [4] *

Francis running training. Warmup leap frog run around the park with heavy medicine ball, ~10min. Then 6 O-controls in the park and woods. Each control had a core exercise; step-ups, superman, back kicks, plank, V-sit ups (name?), and straight ankle jumps. Total ~ 14min.
interval loops around the park, 6x 2:20(+/-2s) with 1:30 rest.
The 6 O-controls and core exercises again, but in different order, ~ 14min.
