Saturday Apr 13 #

10 AM

Orienteering race 1:21:31 [3] 3.48 mi (23:25 / mi)
slept:7.0 shoes: Salomon Speedcross (2017-Navy)

Quantico Classic Day 1 -- Middle / Red at Beaver Dam Run.

I signed up for F-21+ / Red for this weekend and I planned to mostly walk -- I wanted to find lots of controls, cleanly, not necessarily "race".

#1 through #6 -- not bad!

I went up the wrong ridge to #7, and then down the wrong ridge to #8. (I intentionally took the long way around to #8, to take advantage of the open area and the east-west ride.)

Inefficient, curvy route to #10, but the rest went according to plan.

I had some HUGE, time-wasting errors on this map in 2017, so I was happy with this overall. Too bad I can't seem to be this accurate at running speed. :-P


3 PM

Orienteering race 32:52 [3] 2.0 mi (16:26 / mi) +93ft 15:44 / mi
shoes: Salomon Speedcross (2017-Navy)

Quantico Classic Day 1 -- Relay / Leg #2 at Beaver Dam Run.

Valerie hooked me up with Sydney & Kevin Fisher, who needed a third person. They were polite about having an older, slower person on their team. ;-)

I made an effort to run as much as possible, and my navigational accuracy suffered as a result... I got totally disoriented leaving #6 and heading into the open field to #7 -- which was extra embarrassing, since that was the spectator control. :-P

Veered too far to the right of #8. Inefficient to #10.

But -- very fun overall!


Friday Apr 12 #


Travel day. My flight was delayed by an hour, but I made it to Dumfries in time to get my packet. And then I had an outstanding Ethiopian dinner near my hotel in Woodbridge. I did some snack-shopping for Saturday / Sunday at Wegmans, and then went to bed...

Tuesday Apr 9 #

slept:6.0 weight:119.3lbs shoes: Brooks Adrenaline (2019)

LoCO FIT workout at Davidson Mesa.

- Ran about a half mile to warm up.

- Three-mile tempo run. Goal was to maintain a consistent 1/2-marathon to 10K pace. 9:11, 8:57, 8:48.

- I did another loop after a short rest -- 9:11.

- Walked & ran back to the trailhead to cool down.

Sunday Apr 7 #

Orienteering 1:23:50 [3] 4.96 mi (16:54 / mi) +76ft 16:40 / mi
slept:8.0 weight:119.5lbs shoes: Salomon Speedcross (2017-Navy)

Sverre set up a free training course today at the Bear Creek Greenbelt in Lakewood.

It was pretty easy (Orange-ish), but I still managed to make some dumb mistakes -- mainly over-running things b/c of the 1:4000 scale, but also heading back towards the start for the map exchange, without realizing I could go directly from #9 to #10.

I was feeling kinda sore from yesterday's race, so I mostly ran at a very slow pace (or walked).

Another day with great weather -- sunny and 60s.
