Orienteering 1:22:10 [4]

Long course. I ran conservatively, since I just had to have a decent run to make the WOC team. I was being really careful about knowing where I was the whole time, exceot for 6 and 7. I think I counted reentrants wrong on 6, but I'm not totally sure. I hit too far up on the main stream and had to cross lots of reentrants, looking for the one the control was in. If I knew where I was I could have run down the stream faster, but I wasn't positive so I hesitated a lot. Then on 7 I wasn't sure where I was when I hit the powerlines. I noticed the hill, but just couldn't convince myself of where I was. I ran down the powerlines too far, figured it out, and then ran back up.

Orienteering 37:08 [4]

Middle ditance course. I mispunched - I wasn't checking any of my codes and I went to the wrong control on #12. It's very similar and close and I simply didn't check the code. I also had already made mistakes on 5 (not going far enough, doubting myself and backtracking. Relocated off a field with a wall from far away and went for it again), and 8 (didn't keep track of re-entrants and couldn't figure out what nose I was on). Then leaving 12 I hit a different re-entrant, couldn't figure it out and eventually relocated off of 5. Not so good all around.

ran around in a park near Zan's house this morning.

trail run 10:00 [1]

warm up and cool down for the sprint. Not too long - I was quite hot after the few strides I did and felt ready to go.

Orienteering 15:50 [5]

the sprint. I ran really hard, as I could push almost 100% - the orienteering was pretty straight forward, although I see some route choices now that would have been faster. I was careful in the beginning, slowing down going to 2, 4 and 5 and then tried to pick the pace up once I reached the buidings. Fun!

road&trail run 31:00 [2]

ran to Cold Spring Park

road&trail run 4:00 [5]

ran 4x 1 minute. ran the first one on the road and the others on a trail that I think is used less by dog walkers. After being attacked by the dog last week at Cold Spring, I didn't want it to happen again.
