orienteering race 54:13 [4] 5.0 km (10:51 / km)

A very good race. I have bonded with this map and course setter - had a great race two years ago on the green course set by the same course setter on the same map. Could have shaved time off in a few places by punching faster, being able to run up hills, taking better micro-routes, etc. but was always in complete map contact and knew right where the controls were going to be.

orienteering race 56:58 [5] 5.1 km (11:10 / km)

Crystal Relay leg 3. Started 15 seconds behind Sharon Crawford and just ran to catch up and follow her to #1. Didn't manage to keep her in sight on the downhill but was able to figure out where we were and navigate the rest of the leg myself. Had her in sight throughout the course but couldn't gain on her and in fact lost some more time with a sloppy execution to #16. Did run a lot of the course with Roberto C. punching just ahead on some controls and just behind on others. Had to walk an awful lot of the course, but was tough up "the wall" at the end and left him behind.


DVOA ran Jim Eagleton (came in in 10th), Rob Wilkison (12th), me (12th) and Clem McGrath (8th). We were the 6th official club team. Go DVOA!!

orienteering race 43:25 [3] 2.91 km (14:55 / km) +135m 12:07 / km

Another poor outing. Several good legs, a few small errors, and one 5 and a half minute error. I think I'm getting lazy with map reading and not processing all the information that I should be. Will try to work on that the rest of the week.

orienteering race 1:39:36 [3] 5.1 km (19:32 / km)

A pretty depressing outing - took 30 minutes to find the first control. After missing on a pace count I just could not relocate to anywhere that made any sense for the longest time... Thought about quitting but eventually figured out where I was and then settled down and had several very good legs. Then another error where I was at the control, didn't see the reflector (no bags, just pvc piping with reflective tape) so figured I was in a parallel reentrant. Bleah.

hiking 1:00:00 [1]

Some off trail and some short but steep hills.

Saturday Aug 12, 2006 #

biking 2:18:20 [3] 29.0 mi (4:46 / mi)

Out to Valley Forge and back. Time is a little misleading - about 20 minutes is the last 2 miles up the hill home.

strength & stretching 10:00 [1]

Some good stretching and push up/sit up type stuff after many hours in the yard. Made a small dent in the pile of mulch from the elm tree stump.
