Orienteering race (Sprint 1) 15:08  *** 1.7 km (8:54 / km) +3524m 47 / km
FR = 1.23 miles with 24.2 m climb
The original plan was for me to set the sprints for Sandy, but my heart wasn't really into it, so Sandy did it, and therefore I could run them without having seen them ahead of time.
A "straight forward" sprint around the PEEC campus and a little bit into the woods. Only error was to #2 since I wasn't really into the scale. You could see #1 from the start, so I hauled to that, and then paid the price on the next one by stopping at scratching my head too early. Went well after that. Always happy to be able to feel good enough to spring, and breaking 10 min/k was a nice bonus.
Orienteering race (Sprint 2) 28:32  *** 1.85 km (15:25 / km) +40m 13:55 / km
FR = 1.81 miles with 23.5 m climb
This didn't go as well as the first sprint...I tried to cut the corner from 9-10 and ended up nowhere near where I belonged. Nine minutes of error!! Ugh!
On the good news side, my give a damn has returned with my fitness, and it was nice to care.
Orienteering race (Sprint 2 redo) 19:48  *** 1.85 km (10:42 / km) +40m 9:40 / km
FR = 1.36 miles with 23.5 m climb
Messing up Sprint 2 kind of ticked me off, so as I was coming in, I decided to rerun it. Soaking wet and fogged glasses, and a little pooped, but off I went again, knowing that I needed to be clean to get fed dinner in the dining hall before it closed.
Better this time, taking the conservative route to #10, and this was my only error of the rerun - just being slow taking the long way.
Glad I did it again, though was a bit worried that I had done my legs in for the next day...
