Cycling 1:30:00 [3] 14.3 mi (6:18 / mi)

Biking with Addie! Mei-An drove us to College Park and we rode back from there. Really nice day, getting up towards 60F.

Road running 50:00 [3] 3.5 mi (14:17 / mi)
shoes: Adrenaline 17 Gray

Warm-up. I parked outside Rob's house on Elsmere and jogged to the arena, then went up and down the trolley trail for most of an hour, walking some after I finally started to get warm. It was 26 deg.F at 8 a.m. but as soon as the sun came up a bit it felt good. I didn't bring any warm-ups, just got out of the car in the clothes I was going to run in.

Road running race 47:52 [5] 10.0 km (4:47 / km)
shoes: Adrenaline 17 Gray

Bethesda Turkey Chase. I ran a pretty steady race, but I don't know for sure because I only saw mile marker 2 and 5. At 2mi I was at 15:04, and at 5mi 38 something. It felt really long from 5 to 6. My legs felt great, breathing was 1-1 for a lot of that time.

Last year's time was 46:28, a minute and a half faster than this year. No good reason comes to mind, but clearly my races this year have been slower.

First in my age group, out of 38 runners. That's one goal accomplished for this season.

Just a short run, trying to stay light on my feet and quick cadence.

Orienteering race 1:46:30 [4] **** 9.0 km (11:50 / km) +360m 9:52 / km
spiked:18/20c shoes: Spirit OLX (last)

QOC Great Falls. The Park Service places severe constraints on our courses, so they're always a little convoluted. But the woods and the terrain are so great that it's worth the work. I ran better today than I ever have at this park, and ran 18 really good controls, but there were also 2 horribles. I'm not sure I can completely explain what happened, but I wasn't paying as close attention to the landforms as I was the rest of the time.

I lost about 17 minutes on 11, trying various approaches and finally going all the way down to the trail, running around the circumference of the hill and still failing at first to recognize the right reentrant. The state of confusion persisted through #12, and from then on I was good again.
