Orienteering race 1:20:24 [3] 3.87 mi (20:47 / mi) +390ft 18:58 / mi
slept:6.0 shoes: Salomon Speedcross (2017-Turq)


Night-O @ Frisco Peninsula.

I think my favorite part was toward the end when I looked over my shoulder and saw the moon rising from behind a ridge (not a full moon but still huge-looking).

#1-2-3 -- OK.

#4 -- I was on the right bearing but stopped short and then went back to the trail to relocate.

#5-6 -- OK.

#7 -- Wasn't sure which way to turn when I hit the north-south reentrant; wasted time wandering back and forth.

#8-9-10-11 -- OK.

#12 -- I wasn't sure how bad the strip of green would be, so I went the really long way around on trails -- and not even the most direct trails. :-\ (I realized on Sunday that the green wasn't very bad at all to get through.)

#13-14-Finish -- OK. I'm glad I sprinted on these legs, because I finished ahead of the next person by just 34 seconds.

slept:7.0 weight:121.3lbs shoes: Brooks Adrenaline (2019)


LoCO FIT.

No workout today -- just a four-mile group run.

The combination of 96-degree heat and lingering soreness from Tuesday's workout made this feel really hard. I ran 3.4 -- slowly -- and then walked the rest.

I was hoping to find some sprinklers to run through along the way...but my neighbors let me down. :-P

I was feeling last night's workout...so I went pretty slowly.

Run / Hike tempo 1:21:42 [3] 7.62 mi (10:43 / mi) +141ft 10:32 / mi
slept:8.0 weight:121.8lbs shoes: Hoka Challenger (2019)


LoCO FIT workout at Davidson Mesa.

- Ran a half mile to warm up.

- 3-mile, 2-mile, 1-mile progression run. We had the choice of staying at a consistent pace within each set and progressing from one set to the next, OR progressing each mile, starting at half marathon pace in either case.

I had planned to do the second option (getting faster in each mile), starting at 10:00. But when my first mile turned out to be 9:40, I decided to stay consistent within each set. :-P Looking at my splits, it turns out I got slightly faster in each mile (except for mile three in the first set).

9:40, 9:28, 9:29
9:13, 8:59
8:40

- Walked and jogged back to the trailhead to cool down.
