Orienteering race 1:41:00 [3] *** 5.45 km (18:32 / km) +200m 15:40 / km
weight:180lbs shoes: Silva K80

~3 hour drive each way to French Creek North in PA in order to go out on a hot, muggy day in an area that I don't really do all that well on, or like all that much. I must be a glutton for punishment. I also forgot my O pants. Contemplated going out in my shorts, but Mary Frank came to the rescue, and I actually fit in the pants - though not much room to spare. :)
Actual distance was 5.1 miles.
About 17 minutes of errors - regressed a bit to some bad habits of a year ago: 1) getting to a trail and just winging it into the woods instead of making sure I had some idea first, 2) letting someone lead me their way instead of staying with my plan, 3) not making a plan when going into a vague area.
However, I also made a plan on the longest leg and executed it perfectly.

I was getting dressed this morning to go out for a trail walk when the phone rang. Roger was calling from work - there was water leaking from the 2nd floor into the computer room and the training room. So, I drove over our tarps, helped get buckets under things, ran the wet vac once the water source was discovered and turned off, and then it was too late to get out...

Another long nap after work - seems like I have had a nap every day for the last couple of weeks, and I am not feeling more perky.
