Orienteering Related 29:00 [3] 2.0 km (14:30 / km)

Donut exercise. Look for the controls with a white out of a circle around the control. On a sad not I did not do the Mt Bike O, because it was pouring rain at the time I was there.

Orienteering Meet race 19:59 [5] *** 2.3 km (8:41 / km)

Sprint A at Letchworth Park. Fun sprint and only a little trouble with one control where I drifted a bit high.

Orienteering Meet race 12:04 [5] *** 1.5 km (8:03 / km)

Fun Fast and it had a couple of the contro;s from sprint A, but they were taken in different directions.

Orienteering Meet 1:50 [5]

30 controls for the string O , Its fast and hard to punch so many controls at high speeds.

Orienteering Meet race 23:18 [5] *** 2.5 km (9:19 / km) +100m 7:46 / km

Durand Eastman Park...Sprint only ran. It was cool but slow and tired, I could focus on the map near the end and could not tell if I was looking for a spur or a reentrant.

Orienteering Related 47:00 [3]

Partner Memory exercise with Jim Hall. He had never done it and after the first control he was much better. I missed one of the five control I was looking for. This is a fun exercise.

Orienteering Related 1:50 [5]

String sprint O with 30 controls. Kinda crazy but good for punch practice.

Orienteering Meet race 22:45 [5] *** 2.2 km (10:20 / km)

Nice sprint with aonly a few bobbles. this was too soon after eating and it was super hot. It took a while to recover and then went out on a training map for 25 minutes.

Orienteering Meet race 12:11 [5] *** 1.7 km (7:10 / km)

The shorter sprint and I did not keep the map. It had a few controls I already picked in sprint A

Orienteering Meet race 1:00:55 [3] *** 6.0 km (10:09 / km)

Dusk to Night O at Mendon Ponds. Mass start and after 2 minutes I put my light on to read the map. I only had one error where I got on the wrong trail and it took a fewe minutes to figure it out. I was 55 seconds overtime so I lost points but it was because I got greedy at ther end and thought I would pick up pone more easy control, just a bit more distance then expected to the finish. Fun time with cold ice cream for a treat after.

Orienteering Meet race 1:11:51 [5] *** 5.7 km (12:36 / km) +85m 11:44 / km

Day 2 Us Champs. I just could not get myself together as I spiked the rootstock at No 1, but failed to look tucked behind the rootstock was the control. No 2 I had to reclocate, 3 off to the south 55 meters, 6 too much to the north west and had to waste minutes getting back on that about how it went. So much for constant contact.

Orienteering Meet race 1:24:00 [5] *** 5.8 km (14:29 / km) +85m 13:30 / km

US Champs, happy valley, NY. Not so happy today as this was a swampy, wooded event. Good start to the first control and almost a big error to no. Two which I corrected before it was a game breaker. No. four was killer as it was a diffuse area with no really catching features or attack points. 23 minutes, and then lack of confidence on much of the rest of the course, which I had no problems with. Fun, but tough terrain and it seemed like I was in Finland, because so much marshy ground. Tomorow, should be much better and I am only 4 minutes out of second, but when I left, I was fifth.

Weight Training 10:00 [3]

My hotel had a Cheezy workout room, but it had a slide board where you use your arms to slide your body up. I did 5 sets of 20 and 150 crunches. It became really tough after 10/12
I have officially started ski training.

Running 30:00 [3] 3.0 mi (10:00 / mi)

A run finally after 6 days of extreme constant headaches. I figured it was due to being bite bye ticks in Austria . My Doctor prescribed antibiotic and just now the headaches might be completely gone. So a run to see how bad my condition is and it was ok.
