Orienteering race (Corn Maze Champs) 35:06 [5] ***
29c shoes: 212 X-Talon 2012

Total time for Classic, Sprint & Relay Leg 2 combined. Distance - who knows, its a corn maze so its well beyod a straight line value and rather meaningless anyhow.

Didn't realize until too late that my R contact never made it into my eye, which explains why things were fuzzier than usual...

Lot of route choice errors in classic, mostly from losing track of which control I was supposed to be heading for and wandering off toward a different one - its damn tough to concentrate on multiple levels when decision are coming at you so fast - opportunities to run hard without thinking lasted all of 12-15s and that was just on a couple long non-intersecting paths.

Sprint was better, good speed but some hesitation partway through choosing best routes. Sprints are no place for hesitation errors.

Relay was a blast, I was first out in the 2nd leg mass start by design, slow into maze reading course and realized first 5 controls in trickier NW section so elected to jockstuff - followed Giacamo & Ian early, then in with Ben for a bit. Switched to nav mode after 5 and had a solid long leg to 6 only to misread map and get totally trapped on 7. I could see flag, but fumbled figuring how the hell to get to it. Then a train with JJ and others heading for the exit and kicked
it to overdrive leaving maze and finishing.

Then off to the banquet @ Bubs. Excellent time all around...

weight:172.6lbs shoes: 212 X-Talon 2012

Down to East Hartford for the final Wickham race of the summer. Just on the off chance I could pull a U30 seeding card out of my butt... Nice night, but I didnt have enough, missed by 30s or so... 41st out of 140, 2nd M50, 45s behind Kevin G. Got some work to do...


PS - distance is advertised, pretty sure the course is short...

weight:170lbs shoes: 212 X-Talon 2012

Showery & cool - in other words awesome running weather. Nobody @ the forest this AM so a solo jaunt up Shenipsit to Old County, then a variety of single track & forest roads back. Could have gone longer but elected to stop while still feeling strong.

Feeling pretty good since stopping A/Bs on Monday, just need to get back to where I was fitness wise.
