5 PM

Strength / Stretching 1:00:00 [3]

Yard work -- weeding, pruning, raking, sweeping, hauling heavy mulch bags, etc. It was 3.5 hours but I'm logging it as one hour.

Friday Aug 2 #

slept:7.0 weight:119.6lbs

Stomach was very painfully crampy all night -- that feeling of "I'd probably feel better if I threw up". WTH?! Ain't nobody got time for that...

6 PM

Run / Hike race 37:31 [3] 4.0 mi (9:23 / mi) +205ft 8:57 / mi
shoes: Brooks Adrenaline (2019)

Run for the Cure at Eldorado State Park.

This race had been on my radar, but I didn't decide to do it until I heard Charlie would be there with his nephews and JP, as well as several friends from my running group.

It was an out-and-back course, with all the uphill in the second half -- and not actually in the state park, as I had assumed. My stomach settled enough to get through all four miles at a reasonable pace.

It was fun, with good food & beer afterwards, and the world's longest awards ceremony (we stuck around for that since Charlie had gotten 3rd in his AG).

I was #6 of 8 in my age group -- behind Constantina Dita (#2) and Nuța Olaru (#1). Good grief. ;-)

LoCO FIT workout at Davidson Mesa.

My stomach seized up and revolted before I could even finish the warmup mile. I walked back to my car...

8 PM

Run / Hike 15:00 [3] 0.75 mi (20:00 / mi)

My stomach was feeling better (although still not 100%), so I walked to & from the rec center.

Orienteering race 1:28:27 [3] 4.53 mi (19:32 / mi) +839ft 16:37 / mi
slept:7.0 shoes: Brooks Adrenaline (2019)

Red course at Buena Vista.

I think this is my favorite map in Colorado. And it seemed GLORIOUSLY runnable after the recent couple of weeks in Italy & France...

Gøril & her niece from Norway both ran the Green course, so Maiya was my main competition (among females) on Red. I didn't think there was any chance of beating Maiya, so I stopped to take a bunch of photos out on the course.

As it turned out, she only beat me by 47 seconds. DOH! If I hadn't taken all those dumb photos... Oh well; it's fun to have pics of other runners for the RMOC page.

Overall, this went well. I swung out kinda wide to #2; not sure what I was thinking on the way to #5 (bare rock to boulder to saddle would have been 100 times better!); slightly overshot #15 (I looked back and saw John punching it); and then totally blew it on #16 (ready to be finished, obviously not concentrating, and trying to outrun Dave).

I tried to run as much as possible but definitely lost steam on uphills, especially in the last third of the course. But we were at 9,000+ feet...

The only downside of today was the excruciating FOUR-HOUR drive home. (Should be ~2.5 hours.) OMFG.
