trail running warm up/down 10:00 [2] 1.0 mi (10:00 / mi)
shoes: Jalas hi-top O' shoes

Mix of running, walking, stretching. warm up before & between OLOU sprints.
Drove down with adam and hkleaf. cedarcreek was supposed to join us but had to spend the day repairing his wheels.
Beautiful, sunny day with temps approaching 80F. It was more than warm enough for sprints & would have been too hot for anything longer.

orienteering race 11:40 [5] *** 1.67 km (6:59 / km)
shoes: Jalas hi-top O' shoes

OLOU Sprint #1. The flatest of the sprints. Pretty easy navigation, except I lost places to Dan Mattingly and Tom Svobodny by blowing at least 35 or 40 seconds on the one in the ropes course area... the map definitely has some problems in this area with the alignment fo trails & the manmade structures.

orienteering 13:15 [5] *** 1.57 km (8:26 / km)
shoes: Jalas hi-top O' shoes

OLOU Sprint #2. Everybody walked/crawled the brutal climb between 3 and 4. Campfire smoke near #9 was a pain, although it didn't knock me down as bad as smoke often does.

orienteering race 10:17 [5] *** 0.87 km (11:49 / km)
shoes: Jalas hi-top O' shoes

walking 20:00 [1] 0.6 mi (33:19 / mi)

Miami Univ. Western Woods. OBBA project. very easy flat night-time walk. listening for owls.

walking 1:28:00 [1] 3.5 mi (25:08 / mi)

M.U. Natural Areas. College Woods & adjacent properties. Scouting for possible MUNA trail extensions in cooperation with private developer of adjacent properties. Found some nice sprint terrain. Hmmm.

weights / strength 1:00:00 [2]

Turned over the topsoil in the garden; a fire rake makes quick work of the emerging weeds & the soil was perfect for working... not too muddy, not too dry. Hauled a couple of wheelbarrow loads of gravel to start filling in rut along the road where a truck got his right tires off & made a mess a couple weeks ago. Probably actually spent over 2 hours on these tasks...

walking 1:00:00 [2] **
shoes: O T Blaze III

putting out water controls and stealth cams for Flying Pig Classic course, streamering walk to start & carrying equipment to start.

orienteering 1:00:00 [3] ***
shoes: O T Blaze III

picking up controls from the SE portion of the red and blue courses from the Classic Pig. I hadn't visited these sites before the Pig and it hasd been a long time since I've been in this part of the park. Course notes should have mentioned that most of the indistinct trails shown in this area have become very indistinct. It was fun to get out and run, though, a lot of distance out to 131 and 132 and back, with just 0, 1 and 2 control stands, so I could move pretty well, then control picking as I worked back toward the car.
