Running warm up/down (Street & Trail) 11:58 [2] 1.5 mi (7:59 / mi)
slept:7.25 weight:172.5lbs

Balls Bluff Regional Park near Leesburg, VA. I ran up and down the road leading into the park, trying to warm-up in the 30 F weather. It was warmer than the previous day but I felt sluggish from the climbing then.

QOC Balls Bluff Sprints. To qualify for the final, I ran Heat A1 which from what later I saw of Heat A2, was nearly identicle. I felt tired from the previous day. The 1:7,500 scale and 3m contours threw me off a little. The map didn't show the many areas of light green as well as a few extra root stocks. I did okay but I almost shot far left of control #2 and took a bad route into the finish. The course setter had intended the sprints to be twice the distance but didn't realize that that the scale was not 1:15,000.

Running warm up/down (Street & Trail) 8:00 [2] 1.0 mi (8:00 / mi)

Warm-up for the QOC Balls Bluff Sprint Final along the road.

QOC Balls Bluff Sprints: Final A. The "qualifying" from the first heat turned out to be more of a choice but using the finishing time guidelines, I did run the correct final race. I fumbled the route to control #2, by going left and low through difficult footing and much further left than necessary. I fell twice along the way. Part of this may have been fatigue. I also flubbed the run-in swinging wide right again. Neither made for big errors. I don't know if they were enough to really gain me a place. I think I finished 4th fastest to Clem McGrath, Jon Torrance and Jeff Coker.
