Orienteering race 1:04:39  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.
