Brown course at Pound Ridge, 4.0 km. Enjoyed myself.
Just walking, no running. Orienteering technique was excellent except for when it wasn't, the latter fortunately being not often. Forest, map, and course were all about as good as it gets. Thanks to HVO for the event, Geof for the leadership, and Niels for the courses.
And perhaps I have done another life adjustment in a good way. This is not orienteering the way it used to be for me. But I think I have moved on from that and am finding that it can still be enjoyable. This is the third time I've been out recently and each has been a positive experience.
There are still some competitive instincts. A little of that is good, gives something to strive for, but just a little. I think I am pretty close to that.
Drove down with Phil and Steve. Excellent company! And saw a few folks at the event, enjoyable too. Just a really nice day.
And no falls, The left butt hurt much of the time, so perhaps I will investigate options. Hurting a little less would be very welcome. Back was a little sore when I got home, just from a few hours in the car I think. Felt fine on the ride and feels fine now. :-)

A short ride, because there was still some of the nice afternoon left, and I thought it might be a good idea after being in the car for quite a while. And while I was at it, did not quite half in semi-mountain bike mode, ratty jeep trails. Because if I'm planning on some longer rides on such stuff, it's probably a good idea to do a little practice.
No hurry. A little effort on the couple of steeper ups, just to make sure I had sufficient momentum. No problems. :-)
