Occassional thoughts about orienteering

Two races in one dayTomorrow I've got two O' races in one day. PTOC is organizing a regular race at Lake Jacomo with a start around noon. Then they've got a mass start night O' (at a new map near Jacomo) with a start around 7.
I don't have much experience running two races in one day. Tomorrow will be a good chance to see how it feels. It'll be good preparation for the U.S. short champs in a bit over a month.
I expect tomorrow's day course to be 6-8 km and the night O' will probably be more like 3-4 km.
The short champs will have two "stages" with the first starting at 10 a.m. and the second at 1 p.m. Your overall result will be the total time (both stages added together). For M21 the courses are short. The first stage is 1.7 km (with 7 controls) and the second stage is 4.42 km (with 12 controls).
Tomorrow I'll have more time between stages and more distance to run. I'll have a lot of time to kill between races tomorrow. I'm not sure what I'll do to fill that time. Jacomo is about a 45 minute drive from home. It probably isn't worth running, driving home, then driving back and running the night O'. posted by Michael | 8:19 PM
