Easy running 35:44 [2] 6.4 km (5:35 / km)

A morning run in Izmailovskiy Park.

Warmup 3:00 [1] 0.4 km (7:30 / km)

Orienteering 54:04 [3] 8.0 km (6:46 / km)

Moscow Meridian stage 13. These are weekday events held in Moscow city parks. Jogged (16th/120) the course at AHR = 160 (11 minutes back); a surprising amount of map reading (= trail junction reading) for quite simple terrain.

Orienteering 1:38:22 [4] 13.5 km (7:17 / km)

Moscow Champs Classic, the final: 12.45 km/feeble climb. Classic Moscow orienteering: light to medium-green woods, tons of trail running, controls on depressions in flat woods 100 m away from any other mapped feature. The standing Moscow team which ran in the Russia Champs a couple days ago was admitted without qualifying, plus 35 qualifiers from yesterday. I got through fairly unscathed, 14th/31 starters; 19:40 behind the winner. Several of the top 10 are Russian B-team, so I am fairly happy with the result (my best ever in Moscow Champs was I think 10th about 9 years ago---I have to check the old maps). It appeared to me that most runners I saw in the woods moved noticeably faster than myself, and slowed down a ton near the controls or made errors; they also seemed to prefer shortcutting through the bland light-green woods to going around on trails, and some split analysis showed that trail vs. woods made no difference whatsoever. AHR = 165.

Warmup 2:00 [2] 0.3 km (6:40 / km)

Orienteering 1:14:25 [4] 11.0 km (6:46 / km)

Moscow Championship Classic, qualifying race. Qualifying was top 30, which actually ended up top 35 as several non-Moscow club members ran. Caught up one of the people right away who ended up placing 7th; we got the intensity up to about my 5 for the first third of the race. Then I made a 2-min error, lost him, and continued at a fairly leisurely pace; felt the two nights of 3-hour "sleep" on a coach seat throughout. Was 26th/92 (select View->Encoding->Cyrillic (Windows)).

Note

The very long series of flights (redeye to East Coast + redeye transatlantic) actually seems to work great against the jet lag. I'm on the new time already on Saturday morning, at least sleep-wise.

An anti-jet lag run in Izmailovskiy Park.

Went SFO -> MSP -> EWR -> AMS -> SVO (the latter two, on Fri).

Wednesday May 22, 2002 #

Easy running 12:50 [2] 2.5 km (5:08 / km)

The new Nike shoes are awesome. (Awesome as much as Phil Knight is a moronic asshole, though.)

Race pace running 19:42 [4] 5.1 km (3:52 / km)

Sunnyvale Baylands loop, with Doug Stein (he did 20:51).
