Road Running 1:09:55 intensity: (14 @0) + (1:48 @1) + (19:19 @2) + (34:21 @3) + (14:13 @4) 6.08 mi (11:30 / mi) +291m 10:01 / mi
ahr:143 max:172

Loop of south park white trail (All dirt). We had a really terrible map to try to follow, but there were lots of criss crossing unmapped trails and the white blazes were not always obvious, so im not sure if we got the whole thing right. At one point we came to a double fence and were quite confused only to find its a game preserve with buffalo! Saw tire tracks on all the trails so doubles as a mtn bike trail.

Elevation didnt feel to bad, but still better than comparable distance run of bird hills :)

Road Running 38:26 [3] 4.02 mi (9:34 / mi) +159m 8:31 / mi
shoes: Solomon Vario

Run in the rain on the mountour trail. More slow and steady climb instead of steep climbs. Probably not worth driving to run here very often.

Option 2 out the front door:

Was hoping once i got across the street and into the neighborhood it would be quiet, but the roads were actually rather busy unfortunately. And no shoulder. By another super easy run with pretty sweet elevation.

First day of work. I'm officially an adult :(
5 PM

Mountain Biking 1:05:54 [3] 15.39 mi (14.0 mph) +442m
shoes: Trek Superfly 9.6

First exploration of the mountour trail. About a 15 minute drive to parking, but the trail was pretty deserted so it wasnt annoying biking. Mix of crushed gravel and paved, was hoping it was all gravel

Orienteering race 1:28:02 [3] *** 5.0 mi (17:36 / mi)
16c shoes: Salomon Speed Cross 4

WPOC debut at blue spruce park.

I'm going to miss the fact that every map was less than a 30 minute drive, had to trek 90 minutes for this one!

Start up procedure pretty much the same as normal. For set up for red and took off. Forgot to start up my watch until after cp 2, and I can't upload tracks until I get internet.

Took off up the wrong trail to 1 but it was easy to fix. Slightly overshot 3, but not too bad, and then drifted too far down hill to 4 before seeing the flag part way back up. Almost ate pavement on the way to 5, tripping right as I left the woods and sprawling on the road in front of a biker. Passed a guy on red here. Took trails most of the way to 6 (on a legit cliff, cool!). Followed the creek up to 7, but t wasn't actually on the creek, luckily I noticed I crossed the very faint trail and realized my mistake before I way overshot it. Trail to 8 and then I started going around the dark green to 9 before I realized it was easily passible pine forest. By the way to 10 I was feeling hills, , cut in from the hunter stand (every little thing was on this map!). Countoured to 11 and it went pretty well, stopped for a sip of water here. Trails to 12 and then I debated the best route to 13 for a while, but decided trails to an obvious intersection and then about 200 m across rocky ground that ended up being very slow going. Booked it down hill to the road to 14, but drifted. Saw a flag but it turned out to be the wrong one so it took me some time to figure out which way to correct, turned into my biggest mistake. Road to 15 and then contoured to 16 but ended up too high and missed it at first. Quick jog back to the finish.

In general the nav was fairly straightforward and went pretty well, it was the hills that were slow going. The map was really great and the course was set to provide some really good route choice despite all the trails. I think I came in second on red by 12 seconds.

Had a nice chat with Mark lattanzi and his wife at the finish.
