Orienteering 1:43:17 [3] 7.1 km (14:33 / km) +220m 12:36 / km
shoes: Roclite 280-2015

QOC season opener at Lake Accotink, Red course. I lost a lot of time onf #1 -- extra trails not on the map, shaky attack, control may not have been in the place it was marked. Likewise on #2, how hard could it be? Yet I was convinced I overran it and backtracked until I knew I hadn't. Probably 10 minutes on those 2 controls alone.

Better after that, with only a couple more time losses, but certainly not moving at great speed. Frustrated with 14 and 19, I had been to a lot of these control locations before, but in the case of these two controls I made the same mistakes I made before, which is pretty sad.

Cycling 1:58:00 [3] 22.0 mi (5:22 / mi)

Ridiing to work again. A different route this time. At the end of the Northeast Branch trail, continuing onto the Indian Creek trail, cross Greenbelt Road at 60th Ave onto Cherrywood Road, into Old Greenbelt on Crescent Road, then onto the Parkway entrance from the Northway ball fields.

A couple miles longer, but a lot more pleasant than the Goodluck Road finish. The Indian Creek trail is surprisingly pretty, and there is a bike lane all the way from Greenbelt Road to Northway, but there was hardly any traffic.

Cycling 1:55:00 [3] 21.0 mi (5:29 / mi)

I rode my bike to work today, something I've been thinking about doing for a long time but somehow never did. The route was remarkably nice, all but the last 5 miles on paved trails. I picked up the Sligo Creek trail at Windham Lane about a mile and a half from home, went 10 miles to the junction with the Northwest Branch trail, went a short distance to the Northeast Branch trail and got off at Goodluck Road. From there it's 5 miles to Goddard on the road (uphill, as it happens). Actually, I passed Goodluck Road and went on up to Lake Artemisia before realizing I'd overshot, so that added about a mile/5 minutes to the route.

I'm going to leave my bike here tonight and either ride home or throw it in the back of the van tomorrow.

Road running 31:24 [3] 3.6 mi (8:43 / mi)
shoes: Adrenaline 15

I went to the track to do VO2 max intervals, but I quit after the first one because my achilles tendon was sore. This time it was the right side. Anyway, the one interval I ran was 1000m, 4:25. Jogged back home and iced.
