Orienteering 1:01:52 [3] *** 7.9 km (7:50 / km)
spiked:14/14c shoes: PI Synchro Seek Trail

ROC - Mendon Ponds Red - I went out pretty quickly since we had a tight schedule with Tyler's game and right of the bat I was hesitating with the route choice to #1. I think I went thought the exact process Vince did and started south but finished north of Devil's bathtub. The navigation was quite easy but the long legs and effective course setting set up several route choices. From 5 to 6 and from 11 to 12 I chose the parade field since it was an open run and set up better attackpoints - but I would be curious to hear where others went. I also cut across the swamp from 8 to 9 to avoid a nasty U-shaped trail run.

The knee was OK for the run and I tried to take it easy on the downhills. It strangely feels better this evening than it did after my shorter flatter run on Friday.

I finished in just over 1 hour and Jim told me I MPed. Was not too happy to hear about a second MP in as many weeks, but after going through the controls with him, it turned out that one box was coded wrong. The only bad thing was that I did not even hesitate going through the control (#3) even through the code did not match my clue sheet. Checking would have slowed me down unnecessarily in this case, I need to make sure I check things better in the future.


Ahhh. Those seconds do count. Tying my shoes twice is definitely a bad thing. And walking up the hill from 12 to 13 did make a difference. At least I sprinted to the finish.

Trail Running 43:00 [3] 5.1 mi (8:26 / mi)
shoes: PI - SyncroFloat

From Lyndon Road - during one of Tyler's baseball games. Immediately got onto Crescent Trail heading east from Lyndon toward White Brook park. Trail was in good condition and not too many wet areas. This was the first time I had been in this area - and the trail is nice - but there is not much to the park.There is one a big open field and a bunch of wetland areas. I did not make it all the way to the parking area before having to head back. Knee was OK for about 20 minutes then started to nag. We will have to see how it is in the morning.

Left knee is sore and a touch swollen after last weekend. Not much improvement since Sunday evening....

Hope to get some low impact exercise in this week.
