Running 2:00:00 [1] 14.5 km (8:17 / km)

A second visit to one of the previously surveyed training areas at Quantico, with three pairs of new eyes accompanying me. In the woods for 4 hours but deducted half for time spent taking GPS waypoints on point features and general slowness (a fair bit of the time in motion was walking).

Event: QOC Occoquan

Orienteering race 1:04:39 [4] 9.1 km (7:06 / km)

QOC Occoquan Blue - local meet on a very small map of my own creation. I shouldn't have lost that one split. Or I should have run without a compass like Amber - then I'd have an excuse for losing that one split. Not completely useless as technical training but probably best to think of this as mostly physical training - a good hard run in the woods. Do enough of those and I may get to feel good about spring national meet results.

Boris sat out Blue and did a shorter course or maybe just visited some selected controls with Alli before the junior training session. Realized shortly after talking with him a bit about, among other things, the non-ideal character of racing against me on maps I field checked, that I misinformed him - there is, in fact, one more event scheduled this season on a map I field checked - the east side of Fountainhead the first weekend of January. After that we can have some more consistently meaningful local competition for the rest of the season.

Cycling 1:00:00 [3]

An errand in downtown Silver Spring and then a visit to the reopened Renwick Gallery. Quite busy. The show consisting of 9 installations/sculptures with which they are reopening after renovations is definitely worth an hour or so of your time, if you can get down there.

Long trail run in Rock Creek Park, just in time to avoid having to use my headlamp.

Listened to a couple of David Levine's podcasts - I'm into the 2014 vintage now.
