Orienteering race 1:43:43 [3] 3.9 mi (26:36 / mi) +987ft 21:27 / mi
slept:6.0 shoes: Salomon Speedcross (2017-Navy)

"2018" Masters Nationals -- Day 1 of 2.

I think my navigation was generally OK, but with some time-wasting mistakes:

* I was a bit too high going into #1. I wasted some time trying to figure it out, and then I was slow getting down the steep slope.

* On the way to #5, I got slightly off my bearing and followed the wrong ridge down. Figured it out when I hit the cliff.

* Inefficient curvy route to #10.

* And then...I had a massive blunder on the GO control (#16). I still have no idea how I got so lost. That cost me one spot in the final results.

Beautiful scenery and a fun course, even though it was steep.

Orienteering race 1:02:44 [3] 3.39 mi (18:30 / mi) +317ft 17:00 / mi
slept:8.0 shoes: Salomon Speedcross (2017-Navy)

I had a leisurely morning of brunch and grocery shopping, then I got on the road to Camp McKee.

For #1 and #2, I relied on trails. But that felt like a crutch, so I decided to go cross-country to #3. BAD IDEA -- it got really steep there, with slippery mud underneath all the leaves; I think I was slightly off the edge of the map; and the brush was thick. Ugh. I went back to using trails whenever possible for the rest of the course. :-P

Avocado toast and eggs at "First Watch" near CVG. I think it's a chain, but it was DELICIOUS.

Brunch at First Watch near CVG,  3/22/2019.

LoCO FIT workout at Davidson Mesa.

- Ran one mile to warm up.

- Mile repeats x 4. Our assignment was to have a consistent or slightly increasing pace for each mile, around 5K race pace, with walking recovery (0.1 mile back around to the trailhead).

I think I ate my spicy lunch too late in the day -- I really wanted to stop after the second mile. And then I really, REALLY wanted to stop after the third one. But I forced myself to start the fourth one before I could talk myself out of it -- yay.

8:16, 8:16, 8:15, 8:22.

- Ran one mile around Harper Lake to cool down.

Run / Hike race 39:37 [3] 4.45 mi (8:54 / mi) +119ft 8:41 / mi
slept:6.0 shoes: Brooks Adrenaline (2019)

Runnin' of the Green 7K race in Denver with some LoCO FIT friends.

This course was hillier than I expected, and my glute / hip was hurting from the get-go. I wasn't really planning to "race" (and therefore I was wearing a light daypack with my coat-n-stuff for after the race), but I tried to pass some people along the way.

The post-race expo was amazing -- thank goodness I had a bag to put everything in! Bagels, apples, bananas, oranges, coffee / iced coffee, Kind bars, Clif bars, Lara bars, Jimmy Johns sandwiches, Killian's Irish Red beer, cookies, etc.

Sunny & 40s / 50s -- perfect weather.

I have a friend's birthday get-together to go to now, but I really just want to take a nap...!

Overall: 407 out of 1,782
Women: 133 out of 993
F4049: 22 out of 274

Run / Hike warm up/down 28:00 [3] 1.75 mi (16:00 / mi)
shoes: Brooks Adrenaline (2019)

Walked & jogged from parking to the start -- roundtrip.
