Orienteering race 2:45:45 [3] **** 12.89 km (12:52 / km) +357m 11:18 / km
25c shoes: Vasque Spur

I am extremely happy with this run. I was slow, and made some mistakes, but not huge mistakes and I was always in contact with the map. I don't have the map or my splits in front of me, so a more detailed look later.
The terrain was very similar to Telemark, so the work setting there last fall definitely helped. After the long i decided not to sell my compass and take up basketmaking.

Orienteering race 1:48:25 [3] **** 5.5 km (19:43 / km) +240m 16:11 / km
spiked:9/16c shoes: Vasque Spur

A few good legs. A few smaller mistakes. One big mistake. And one HUGE mistake on leg 14 (20 minutes or more) when I was completely not in touch with the map. Considered heading back in to DNF. I am happy that for the most part that I slowed down and read the features. One of the legs I made a big mistake on I walked it and still drifted off line. I will look at tomorrow as experience.

Orienteering race 22:05 [5] *** 2.8 km (7:53 / km) +65m 7:04 / km
spiked:12/13c weight:177lbs shoes: Vasque Spur

I had a really good run going until #10. Took a different route than the people I was with, which I think was pretty good, then began to second guess myself. Thought I had overrun the control, and lost confidence. Looking at the splits, this was a 5 minute mistake. Regrouped, got to the control and then finished the last 3 with no errors. I will again take the positives from this one and look toward tomorrow.

Finished the LONG drive to Detroit. Rena is not a fan of her carseat. If she was awake, she was crying.
I am feeling sick.
Scootered around the block multiple times while Jasper tried out his new bike. Looking forward to this weekend's courses. Not looking forward to the drive home.

Rowing 55:00 [3] 7.0 km (7:51 / km)

Last day of Macalester practice, and they were short a body. One of the rowers wwanted to cox so I jumped in. Felt fun to be on the water on a perfect morning. Now life can get back close to "normal."

Orienteering 52:00 [3] *** 4.5 km (11:33 / km) +40m 11:04 / km

Control picking at Lebanon Hills. I would have liked to have been on a map a lot more this spring, but it just wasn't in the cards. Had fun today. I scared up a red fox, followed a flock of turkeys for awhile and saw a snowy egret.
Oh yeah, I did okay staying with the map.

Trying to squeeze too many things into the same time period caught up with me this weekend. Not a single loggable activity over the past 4 days. I would have to look a ways back in my log (with the exception of immediately after Rena was born) to see that.

Road Biking (tandem) 1:50:00 [2] 25.0 mi (4:24 / mi)

Snuck away for a tandem ride with Molly in the middle of the day. First time on a tandem. It's a little weird. Great day and we avoided the rain mostly. Went out the greenway past 100, turned around and then down by Lake Calhoun and back towards home on the parkway.
