Orienteering Meet race 1:04:19 [5] *** 6.7 km (9:36 / km) +185m 8:26 / km

Chestnut Ridge south of Buffalo, NY. Long distance event and once again it was fairly ridge and valley...My kind of O. It was so humid that at points in the middle to the end of the event, I could not see through my protective glasses and had to slow down, use memory and stop to read a lot of detail. Overall not too bad of a run and top off a weekend of three first places in M-55 age group. This never happens, so I guess I like the area. Now only if the US Champs were this weekend.......

Orienteering Meet race 38:31 [5] *** 4.1 km (9:24 / km) +100m 8:22 / km

Middle Distance Sprague Brook Park South of Buffalo New York. Quick and clean. Funny that the course started with a 40 foot drop into a creek, kinda trashy, but after that it opened up into nice and fast woods. Lots of trails and really up and around the steep creek bed. We camped last night in the park and it was quiet and peaceful night, except for the harley motobike roaring through, looking for a campsite. A bit of rain, so it was really humid all weekend.
3 PM

Orienteering Meet race 13:40 [5] *** 2.4 km (5:42 / km) +30m 5:22 / km

Sprint at Sprague Brook Park. Run in shorts and shoes. Not very technical, so just run like hell. The sciatia nerve is a major probem warming up all weekend, but after the first 100 meters or so, I don't think about it til the end.

Orienteering Related race (Canoe O) 1:05:00 [4]

Canoe O with Jim H. We started out fine and then it was time for me to run down 5 or more controls til I returned to the boat. We were ahead of 2 fast boats till we hit the missing control and wasted to much time looking for it. This course was on the Genoese River and the Erie Canal.

Sprint A and it was at Webster Park. Nice and fast. .

Orienteering Meet race (Relays) 24:00 [5] *** 3.6 km (6:40 / km)

This was three 1.2 relays mass start training. There were breaks between each one. The controls were sprint controls, with people moving all around.
I crossed a river in all three relays. Fun and fast and my legs were getting a bit sore.

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.
