Road running 1:13:34 [3] 7.85 mi (9:22 / mi) +123m 8:56 / mi
shoes: Adrenaline 18

Almost 8 miles total, with 4 miles on the Rock Creek trail, from Plyers Mill to Stoneybrook, then up the steepest hill in the area past the temple, gaining a couple hundred feet in about 3/4 mile. I used to avoid going this way until I recently learned about the little exit trail just after the railroad bridge that bypasses the dangerous section on Capitol View Ave near the top.

Speed work tempo 38:58 [5] 4.82 mi (8:05 / mi) +110m 7:33 / mi
shoes: Adrenaline 18

Today's workout was 40 minutes at T pace, which should be around 7:40/mi for me, making it about 5 miles. I've always done 20 min T workouts at the track, where I can control the pace, but double that seems kind of crazy, 20 laps or so. So I did it on the road. Seems like it worked out pretty well, AP calculates my climb-adjusted pace as 7:33, Strava says 7:47. I tend to believe the Strava number in this case, because it took me a while to get up to speed. I should have done a warmup before starting the timer.

Trail Running 1:01:01 [3] 6.47 mi (9:26 / mi) +163m 8:45 / mi
shoes: Adrenaline 18

Yesterday's effort made my legs cramp last night, and left me a little hypoglycemic today. I have no idea why that was so hard. It was stop and go (stop while taking photos and tagging them to my position, go when I jogged to the next interesting feature). I was wearing my hydration pack, which, despite weighing only about 4 lbs full, clearly made it harder to run. And the terrain was typical QOC spur and reentrant. I guess more training like that would be a good thing.

Anyway, on to today, low 60s, partly sunny, and a fine day for a road run.

Orienteering 2:19:41 [2] 6.06 mi (23:03 / mi) +161m 21:18 / mi
shoes: Roclite 290 Black

Scouting at Prince William Oak Ridge area. Starting from the Oak Ridge camping area, I ran on the trail and road to a pullout on the Scenic Drive, then went into the woods, navigating on a custom map (exported from OCAD) using Avenza on my phone. I took a bunch of photos, and the app tagged them to my position with waypoints. My first experience with Avenza. It's the best app I've used for working on a custom map, but the map has to be geotagged in order to import it. After 2 hours I still had 80% power left. I'm not sure how the tracks and photos will export, but we'll see.

Speed work at Einstein HS track. They've finished installing an artificial turf field, but they didn't do any work on the track. In fact, there is a little damage on the inside, next to the field.

6x(400 at R pace with 400 jog). Times were 1:34-1:35, but the last one was 1:36.
