Orienteering (Relay Competition) 46:55 [3] 6.17 km (7:36 / km)

Day 3 of the US Team Trials was held in 50 degree rain. I ran on a team of Bernie Breton (Green), myself (Red) and Gail Gagarin (Brown). Peggy and Bernie came in together. I was with Mike Eglinski most of the way. I would run up a little and either bobble or stop to read the map and watch Mike pass me. He lead with me on his heels most of the way. He could read it so much faster and better than I--all I felt I could do was try to stay in-touch. I got a little ahead at the spectator control and rushed out to get ahead on what I thought was a trail run. My thumb must have hidden control #8 which is in direct line to #9 and I skipped it. This got us disqualified. Then I bobbled #9 and Mike and I were even again. My sincere apologies to the team and to Mary Jones whom I put under pressure to race Gail by finishing with Mike. This was a terrible recurrance of previous mass start type events which tells me my thought process is wrong. The weekend seeing friends was fun.

Running (Warm-up) 5:00 [3] 0.75 km (6:40 / km)

Warm-up for the Classic Stage of the US Team Trials. I ran up to the spectator control and down to the start.

Orienteering (Competition) 2:06:09 [4] 11.28 km (11:11 / km)

The Day 2 Classic stage of the US Team Trials on the Rockhouse Mountain Map in Harriman State Park, NY. This better but still dissapointing day was the best of the three days. The first part of the race was good. I screwed-up the longest leg, something I usually feel more comfortable doing. I also forgot to take along a Gu so I felt like I bonked on the second loop.

Orienteering (Training) 12:00 [3] 1.2 km (10:00 / km)

In Harriman State Park, NY. Part of the practice course before the US Team Trials. 3 of 4 controls spiked before I had to run-off to the start.

Running (Warm-up) 5:30 [3] 0.75 mi (7:20 / mi)

In Harriman State Park, NY; From the parking lot near Kanawauke Circle west on Rte 106. The start was 2.5k away and I only had less than 15 minutes. Part way there, Pat Zerfas and her husband gave me a ride and I had plenty of time to calmly get there. Thanks!

Orienteering (Competition) 1:23:24 [3] 4.31 km (19:21 / km)

Running at the US Team Trials on the Surebridge Mountain/Hogencamp Mountain map in Harriman State Park, NY, on a misty cool day. I was definately not trying out for the team and my result tells why. I did okay except for one control which took me +32 minutes. My new e-punch wouldn't work either. I had to punch my bib the whole way. See the Split List.

Running (Street & Trail) 32:56 [4] 5.15 mi (6:24 / mi)

Starting at 11:35pm, From Quill Point Dr., up Prospect Hill Rd. to Bell Station Rd. to the WB&A Trail, to Hillmead Rd. to Quill Point Dr. Walking to the metro train after working late made me feel like running. A room-temperature light rain and light windy night, I felt pretty good. Having run most of this route on Monday, I was faster. I ran 6:34 for the first uphill mile. This is a course PR, though I've only run the route about a dozen times and rarely hard.

Running (Street & Trail) 16:20 [3] 2.36 mi (6:55 / mi)

From Quill Point Dr. Quilt Patch La. to Fletchertown Rd. to Quetzal Dr. to Quill Point Dr. I was working late again. I got out to run anyway in a light rain--I needed it since I haven't been getting much training in lately.

Weights (General) 13:00 [3]

30 pushups, 45 situps and dumbells.

Running (Track) 51:11 [5] 10.7 km (4:47 / km)

At the UMD Track. I ran 10x200m with a runner from the Terrapin Running Club (a student group) while other PGRC runners were working out too. It has been a while since making it to the track and I've run hardish the last couple days so I kept the quantity and distance low. Running 200m, the jogging 200m, I had the following splits: 33, 34, 34, 34, 34, 34, 34, 33, 35, 34.

Weights (General) 4:00 [3]

30 pushups, 45 situps.
