Orienteering race 2:07:35 [4] ***** 8.2 mi (15:34 / mi) +623m 12:35 / mi
17c shoes: Salomon Speed Cross 3 Black

I got the early start today.

Started off much better to 1. Hit 2 a little high and took a few minutes to realize. 3 was good, then 4 I stumbled finding the wrong boulder pile and being convinced it was right for too long before correcting. 5 I spent too long looking for an apparently nonexistent trail before giving up and just taking the long side hill, and then slowing one reeentrant too early.

Took the long way around to 6 but mostly trails and road so I was moving good. Then missed the pit at 7 and had to go searching. 8 I tried to take the long way around again, but the trail was nonexistent and the fence was too high to get over it to the road, so that ended up being a really bad slow choice.

Things improved on the back half, executing the long leg 9-10 really well and then the rest were pretty short legs that I was able to run most of.

Lots of smaller mistakes and bad route choice that stacked up in the end. 15/20 finishers with 5 dnfs. Mostly happy with my showing, but definitely need to get used to 2 hours in the woods.

Gu really helped perk me up both days, wondering if I should take one just before also.

Orienteering race 1:56:26 [4] ***** 7.25 mi (16:04 / mi) +583m 12:51 / mi
16c shoes: Salomon Speed Cross 3 Black

Gnc classic blue

Syd and Jens had start times an hour before me, so I had lots of time to warm up, stretch, contemplate, etc.

Took off, and I don't k ow of it was excitement, or switching from 1:5 to 1:15, but I totally botched 1, with a 7-8 min error. Stupid. Luckily I was able to pull it together and get thru 2-5 pretty well.

5-6 was the long leg and I took the be time to make a plan,and then executed it poorly. Luckily I think what I ended up doing actually turned out to be a better choice, but it was slow since I had to relocate a few times.

7-9 I was feeling the climb, legs were beat and it was very hilly and unavoidable. Ate my gu and stopped for water at 9.

Perked up on the way to 10, and was able to string together the last 5 pretty well with a nice jog thru open flatter woods. 11-12 was another long leg and I made a plan and executed well, so I'm pretty happy with that. Didn't have much in the tank for the sprint to the finish.

12/29 on my course. Not too shabby, probably could have shaved 10 minutes of errors which would have bumped me maybe 3 spots?

Orienteering race 20:19 [5] *** 2.1 mi (9:40 / mi)
15c shoes: Solomon Vario

Blue sprint at GNC

Jens showed us the ropes, practice course, scouting how the start and finished work etc. then About 2 hours of waiting around.

Watched Jens go and come back before it was my turn.

Started a bit slow to 1, wanted to make sure I didn't make a dumb error out of the gate. Started turning it on for 2 and kept up a good pace through 9. Mostly straight and fast, not taking the time to peruse the map for route choices. Got in a few thick spots and missed #2 south getting distracted by another control, but overall pretty good.

Twisted my ankle coming out of 8, and had to hobble a beautiful open downhill field through 11, but it faded and I got back to speed for the finish

A lot of fun and a pretty good debut. 6/22 on blue and only 1 minute behind 2nd.

Flags everywhere, people everywhere, it's a totally different experience!
