trail run 12:04 [1] 1.69 km (7:08 / km) +92m 5:37 / km

to the start with Mike

orienteering 1:59:48 [3] *** 8.7 km (13:46 / km) +382m 11:17 / km

West Point, Long @ Turkey Mountain

Not so nice terrain. Map is white but there was calf to waist high brush covering most of the area. Tough!
Wanted to get #1 good while I failed with that twice Saturday. Turned the map to see we had a long leg to #1, went slightly left to pick up the diffuse trail but never found it.. pulled too far left and wandered through all that green striped along the marsh, ugh. Pretty uninspired from there on.

To #2 I didn't simplify enough, just should have picked a few big features, very slow going up the hill and not very confident either. Went to the top of the hill and was walking around in the green there for a while before I realized, then went down but had trouble finding the control and almost gave up.. when I looked down and there it was, very well hidden.

#3 went fine, had my Gu while I had already been out for 40min(!)
Had some trouble and stood by one of the boulders N of #5 when I saw it. Took the long way around on the trails to #8, a bit of a break from the physical terrain. Veered a bit left for #9. In and out to #10 was painful.

#12 should have gone the road/trail around! (was tired and didn't want to run through the crowd) Went into the green way too early. This green wasn't bad by the way, like Mike said he could have run through that kind of stuff all day instead of the other crap. Anyway then I stumbled over a scary arrow and found a boulder with a control so understood I had to keep going.

FR 12.422km


Mike told Jim that he had trouble out in the woods while he kept thinking that this woman's red/white shirt was his control, he looked up the hill and ran towards it but then it would move.. and Jim said: you should have punched her! =)

trail run 11:03 [1] 1.45 km (7:38 / km) +122m 5:22 / km

up, up, up to the start

orienteering 42:42 [3] *** 3.8 km (11:14 / km) +190m 8:59 / km

West Point, Middle @ Bull Pond

I really liked the terrain here, but I didn't feel fit enough to enjoy it. Had some good controls and some bad. Happened at least twice (2 & 4) that I got to a control and figured I still needed to go farther but I checked the code and it was mine.
For #1 it looked easy enough to just pick of features along the way so I went without a compass bearing and had trouble once I was in the ring. Went a bit passed #6. Got confused by #8. Took my time taking a compass bearing for #13 and when I looked up those big boulders were so obvious. Slow through the rocky grounds to #14 and then climbed up the wrong cliff SW of the control(!)

FR 4.632km

run 8:18 [1] 1.17 km (7:07 / km) +21m 6:32 / km

West Point, Sprint @ Camp Natural Bridge

Tired legs! Started with another #1 mistake. Stood by the boulder W of #7 when I saw the control. Very confused on the way to #8. Went left around the building to #15.

trail run 47:41 intensity: (10:00 @1) + (27:41 @2) + (10:00 @4) 8.59 km (5:33 / km) +77m 5:19 / km

Nice morning session together with Becky, around a misty Lake Wintergreen.
5 x 90s (30s) ~4min rest and then 5 x 30s (90s)

trail run 1:12:39 intensity: (10:00 @1) + (55:49 @2) + (6:50 @3) 13.03 km (5:34 / km) +156m 5:16 / km

at Maltby Lakes couldn't find a good hill
3 x 30s (off trail), 5 x 20s, 3 x 1min & 2 x 20s hill sprints

Definitely struggling but probably has to do with overall shape, felt good on the short ones but died after half on the 1min ones.
