Run (mud, snow & road) 1:05:00 [2] 7.0 mi (9:17 / mi)
shoes: Montrail Vitesse 610

Lots of miscellaneous running with some of it unplanned. I didn't do enough warmup before the first sprint because it took me a long time to get my annual WI parks sticker and I wanted to get "first tracks" through the snowy course. There was a nice run out and back to the second sprint. The bulk of the running was coming back from hanging controls for the night-o. I couldn't stay for the actual race (because I was directing tomorrow's CAOC meet) so I offered to help Charlie. I got so exhausted running through the deep snow while setting that I decided to run a much longer route back on snowy & muddy trails.

Orienteer race (snow-o) 24:20 [5] *** 3.1 km (7:51 / km)
shoes: Montrail Vitesse 610

First sprint at Badger's sprint meet. Charlie did a great job course setting for this meet. I really enjoyed the courses and had two solid races. This one went through the fields and camp sites north of 142. The snow was deep and there were a few opportunities to to fully immerse your lower leg in ice cold water. I had some Snowgaine flashbacks, yikes !! Still, a fun race.

Orienteer race (snow-o) 30:51 [5] *** 4.0 km (7:43 / km)
shoes: Montrail Vitesse 610

Second sprint. This one was longer with half paths & half snowy, muddy, wet field running. I pushed it hard again and my race was pretty clean. Very enjoyable.

O-Related (hanging controls) 1:00:00 [3] 6.0 km (10:00 / km)
shoes: Montrail Vitesse 610

Hanging controls for Charlie. OOf !! This sapped the rest of my strength as I ran to the points trying to finish before sunset. The fields and woods were either covered in a foot of wet snow or mushy with foot-sucking mud.
