Trail Run long 3:21:32  12.0 mi (16:48 / mi) +1132m 12:59 / mi
Couldn't decide between 25k at Pinelands and Bigelows and finally I decided that I'll have enough flat this summer, so off to the north it was. I knew the KOM for the whole of the loop was either 3:30 or 3:00, I couldn't remember but decided to go for a pretty hard run and see. On the road just before the turnout I saw a swamp donkey (*) just browsing, luckily It was 30 feet west of my line of travel.
So then it was a run out the flat lead in to the Firewarden's Trail which gets steeper and steeper and steeper and then has a mile that gains 1500'. So there was my 28 minute mile. Off to the peak, in the fog but with dry footing, and then along the lovely ridge. Views would be nice but beggars can't be choosers. Run down by the pond and then the always lovely Horns Pond Trail for the jog down to the parking lot. 3:11 for the loop, KOM by 19 minutes. Not super fast, but not bad. Legs felt good all the way, too.
Then I came home and ate a bag of chips and steak and hummus and other healthy things.
(* = moose, but it's such a better term)
Bicycle 43:57  11.1 mi (3:58 / mi) +314m 3:38 / mi
In late to camp, and hot, so I waited for it to cool down until after 6ish and went for a short bike ride. Up the hill, then down the newly-paved Nickerson HIll (lots of new pavement around here, although even with good pavement I'm not about to ski Nickerson), across the closed bridge, up OKH (also new pavement, may be go-downable) and on to 17, which has markings that seem to suggest it will soon be repaved.
Finished down the pond, and then up the pond hill (more new pavement at the base of the pond) and in. Only 11 miles, but three decent climbs.
A wicked nice day today—I wish the seabreeze would always keep it cool. I was out in the sun at an event at 7:30 and didn't get home until 6; wanted to go for a run but too tired. Then I logged: 11 hours in the past 7 days. That's a lot for me at this stage, so it's okay to feel tired!
Bicycle 43:31  8.1 mi (5:22 / mi) +100m 5:10 / mi
6 miles to the Arb? I can log that. Plus a couple miles of MTB-control-setting.
Orienteering warm up/down 10:50  1.0 mi (10:50 / mi) +40m 9:38 / mi
Setting a few more controls.
Orienteering race 18:49  1.8 mi (10:27 / mi) +90m 9:03 / mi
I wasn't going to do the race, but it cooled down a bit and I ate some cookies and Alex goaded me in to it and it wasn't all in tall grass (just a lot of it) so it was okay. Also, I think I am going to make a total of three (3) park-os this year. Lots of Thursday stuff. In any case, I ran pretty cleanly, aided by knowing where half the controls were, especially the one I mis-set at the top of the hill because Alex though that the "top of the hill" was too vague even though it was the top of the biggest hill around AND it has a pretty distinct top. Oh and I may have run up an uncrossable cliff. So I went to set it where I'd put the circle on the map, and hadn't realized she'd moved it a few meters behind a rock. Oh well.
I also knew where the control that was near the nonexistent fence jog was, too. Came back from setting that and said "hey Ed, there's no jog in that wall." He said there wasn't on LIDAR but he was sure there was in his notes, so in it went. Oh, well.
Most importantly I had fun and beat Alex. Then Isak, having gotten very lost biking over, came and beat us all.
Bicycle warm up/down 19:45  2.1 mi (9:24 / mi) +80m 8:25 / mi
Biking around getting controls. You can carry a lot of controls on a bike. But not all of them.
Bicycle 29:24  6.0 mi (4:54 / mi) +30m 4:50 / mi
Friend had a going away party at a bar. I was two hours late, changed on the street (pants over sweaty shorts, yeah). But it was still going on when I got there. After 20 miles of biking and O, I was pretty beat.
Run warm up/down 11:33  1.3 mi (8:53 / mi)
SEB came to town to record me for his podcast. I suggest he come on a Tuesday night, and we could run the stadium Wednesday morning to give him a scenario of what my life is all about (good job if you got that reference
). We left early, and had a relaxed run over. This is weird.
Run hills 30:44  1.3 mi (23:39 / mi) +524m 10:30 / mi
Stadiums! Went hard today, but hit a wall about half way through. It wasn't hot but still warm, and I think my legs were a bit tired from this weekend. Finished in over 30 but stayed mostly cool, still not back to where I should be. But alive, so that's good.
Run warm up/down 11:45  1.3 mi (9:02 / mi)
And a run home.
