Wednesday May 2 #

Road running race 15:10 [5] 2.0 mi (7:35 / mi)
shoes: Adrenaline 17 Gray

The 85th NASA Goddard 2-mile "fun" run. Or not-so-fun. It was over 80 degrees at noon, full sun. That's my excuse for finally breaking the 15-min barrier. . . in the wrong direction. My run was good for the conditions, 7:35 - 7:35 on the mile splits. 2-1 breathing as I passed the 1-mile point, 1-1 up the hill and in the last quarter-mile (with a bit of a breather in the downhill between them).

I pre-soaked my hat and shirt just before starting, and they were dry by the end. Not a whole lot of sweat, on what was only the second warm day of the year.

I see my VDOT dropped below 40, a new low. Just the way it's going to be, I guess.

Road running 35:43 [3] 3.1 mi (11:31 / mi)
shoes: Adrenaline 17 Gray

Warm-ups. Jog to the start area, put on my bib and tag, then a few laps and 6 strides.

Road running 12:00 [3] 1.2 mi (10:00 / mi)
shoes: Adrenaline 17 Gray

Cool-down run, back to my office. A shower and then a 1:15 meeting.

Sunday Apr 29 #

Orienteering 50:46 [3] 3.8 km (13:22 / km) +190m 10:41 / km
shoes: Spirit OLX (last)

Mt. Tom Day 2. Finally a good run, and I felt like I did about the best I could. A few things could have been improved, and the little things add up.

On #1, I planned to go around the pond but found myself climbing up the stairs to the top of the escarpment. It was easy reading the terrain from there, but a couple extra contours and some distance added.

On #4, I got off the trail and up onto the spur a little early, came down into the reentrant and went for a different control, which turned out to be on a boulder rather than a cliff. Ran straight to the cliff after that.

I overran #6, saw the stream and came back, saw the boulder control just to the N, then finally hit the right one in the reentrant.

From 9 to 10 I ran on the trail all the way, around the drainage, across the small road, through the green and downhill right along the cliff edge. The control was just 10m off the trail bend. I thought for sure it was the best route, but it turns out going up to the road was faster. I still can't believe it.

Anyway, a fun course and I could hardly be happier with my performance, in the rain, no glasses, magnifier useless. Loving it.
