Orienteering (Hurd State Park Meet) 38:00 [4]

I ran red on the 1:9600 map just south of Hartford. I had a pretty strong run, I lost a bit of contact on the way to the fifth control, didn't focus, but lost no time because of it (just lost the speed that comes with confidence, but just on that leg). Control 6 was a bingo control and then control 10 was in a pretty badly mapped area. Error on 13, not recognizing where the feature was in the circle. I need to make a conscious effort to sleep more....

Orienteering (Control pick up) 40:00 [3]

Control pick up at the Elm Park meet in Worcester. I planned my routes and simmulated flowing through the controls. The map was pretty off. I need to make an effort to not go out on bad maps. Its not good for the map to terrain transition and builds doubt in the map.

Orienteering (Stamford Nature Center Ra) 35:00 [4]

An interesting course with some butterfly like loops. I liked most of it, there were just a couple of sharp angled legs that would have made the course suspect if there were more people. The terrain was mostly fast and the water features where severly accentuated with the crazy rain! I ran well, except for a small error on the fourth control where I was too far to the left (compass perhaps) + not seeing the way easier route. Legs felt strong and fast.

Orienteering (Control Pick up) 40:00 [3]

Drove over to the Harriman meet to try and run the course way late. Was too late, but was able to pick up controls. I had a great time with my first run in Harriman. What a beautiful area! I want to train in that amazing place as much as possible. I hope that I can get at least 10 sessions in those beautiful woods. Prehaps some small compass problems on a couple of legs. The terrain was fast and the map impecible. I also need to stick to my plan once I make it.

Orienteering (Training) 40:00 [2]

A quick session out at the Notch to work on the compass. I was pretty tired and trained 6-7 medium legs on the compass. I need to have a structured plan when I go out in the woods, or have a planned course that needs a lot of compass. I also need to work on some terrain confidence.

Orienteering (Training) 40:00 [3]

Training with Peter. Good runs on compass + testing some basic skills that I need to improve. Could improve our training if we planned better. We are trying some control picking next week at the Notch. I am excited for Oing at least 4 days a week!!!!

Trail Run 20:00 [3]

Running out into the map for training.+ back again

Physical Activity (Ultimate/ Football) 25:00 [3]

Just some games with the guys out in the quad. My legs felt good after the long weekend at Pawtuckaway. I used this as a substitute for a short run. It kept the blood flowing for sure.
