cycle 41:05  10.21 km (4:01 / km) +18m 3:59 / km
Worked at home today, so I had the chance to ride at lunchtime. Windy today.
sprint drills (20-30-40) 35:01  2.9 km (12:03 / km) +2m 12:01 / km
Some sprint drills at Holcom. They had painted some lines on the field (for rugby?) and I tried to use them. But I was running into the sun and they were hard to see. Finally picked some other landmarks to use. Felt slow today. I'm worried that I won't be ready for my races in June.
orienteer race 39:09  4.55 km (8:36 / km) +61m 8:04 / km
OK event at the Overlook. I worked registration/beginners instructions, then went out. It was a beautiful day, but my mind and body were just not into it.(Got home at 5 pm yesterday, still a bit jet-lagged). I made a huge tactical error right at the beginning. I saw 228-223-229, so that's what I set out to do. Only as I was heading to 223 did I see that I should go to 229 first and that the road was much better option. Ran with Fritz for awhile in here, and the head-to-head prompted us both to take some crazy shortcuts through the woods. The rest was a nice straight run, with some occasional stops to take photos of the participants (lots of ideas on AP threads about publicity, prompted me to think about post-event Facebook).
Turnout was a bit low but did include some first-timers and relative newbies, as well as the old reliables. Nice lunch after with Gene, Dick, Paul and Fritz.
run 24:18  4.01 km (6:04 / km) +5m 6:02 / km
This was supposed to be a 5k run at 6min/k pace. But I had a long day at work and I was feeling some jet lag, so it just wasn't happening. I was really struggling after 2 k, so I decided to try to keep the pace but cut back to a 4K run. Almost made it.
Followed by a lovely dinner at a quaint seafood place on the docks. Ended with a fine whisky. There are some perks to business travel.
Fun social outing at work. Outdoor games: archery and clay shooting. This was the first time I ever fired a gun. Did better at the shooting than the archery. Large, fun group of colleagues made it a great night out.
