Road running 1:07:40 [3] 7.1 mi (9:32 / mi)
shoes: Adrenaline 17 Gray

What a nice day! Sunny and high 50s. I planned to run 4 miles, but I was daydreaming and found myself off course, not once, but twice. The second time I was already on the longer route so I decided to just keep going. It's kind of pleasant when your mind goes blank and you're not even aware of the passage of time. But it's not real good for orienteering performance.

Took a telecon at home this morning then went for a run, sunny and cool at midmorning. What a life.

Road running 36:32 [3] 4.0 mi (9:08 / mi)
shoes: Adrenaline 17 Gray

I woke up this morning and felt like running. It was 38 deg F, and I put on tights, long-sleeve shirt, hat and gloves. I passed a woman going the other way dressed in shorts and a tank top.

Orienteering race 42:40 [5] 4.0 km (10:40 / km) +120m 9:17 / km
shoes: Spirit OLX (last)

BrownX, Day 2. Oh, man. What a disappointment. I had a good run today, but I mispunched at #7. I was too low on the hill and came out in the northern ditch, ran south, and saw the control in a small ditch with a crowd of people, so I punched and ran on. It was the only time I didn't check the control code, and it was the wrong one. The right one was a little further on. If I had checked I could have spent a few minutes looking for it and still had the best 2-day time.

It was good course setting, though, taking us out of the distinct open hills and abruptly into the vague flatland. It required a change of pace. The long leg 2 to 3 was also good, many ways to go, and none of them easy.
