Running (Warm-up) 4:00 [2] 0.4 mi (10:00 / mi)

Warm-up in Ponderosa Pine State Park near McAll, ID. I had waited about 3 1/2 hours for my start in the relay, anchoring on a red course. It was already getting hot so I didn't warm-up much. I stopped just in-time for Nancy Koehler to hand off to me.

Orienteering (Competition) 1:11:00 [4] 6.2 km (11:27 / km)

US Relay Championships in Ponderosa Pine State Park near McAll, ID. I ran on a 12 point team with Gail Gagarin, Rachael Koehler and Nancy Koehler. Rachael was being very sporting to do the Orange/Yellow 3.2K leg when she had only done White previous to this. She go a little frighted by some elk and a fox but finished in 1 1/2 hours. I got to start 3.5 minutes ahead of the 4th leg mass start. Though I flubbed the first control, I thought I was running better than I did. Some map problems caused me time as it did others. I had 2 bad route choices too. The park was very green and had some physical legs.

Hiking (Day Hike) 2:48:00 [3] 4.5 mi (37:20 / mi) +450m 28:29 / mi

From Lick Rd. parking near McCall, ID. Peggy and I hiked to Duck Lake and then up to the ridge for a view of the surrounding mountains. We probably only got to just under 8,000 ft elevation. I hiked up to a knob with a little rock scrambling. The hike was beautiful! It went through an area recovering from a forest fire 9 years back. The visibility was to the the next mountains. The rocks were bleached white and it felt like going through a garden.

Running (Warm-up) 9:00 [2] 1.25 mi (7:12 / mi)

In Bear Basin Park, near McAll, ID. Warm-up for the A-meet. From the parking to the start and along the road.

Orienteering (Competition) 1:11:57 [4] 7.2 km (10:00 / km)

PNWOF, in Bear Basin Park, near McAll, ID. I started off 2 minutes behind Spike and he caught me by the first control. This was partly due to no one telling me that the actual start triangle was not where they started us from. After that I ran okay but felt the altitude ~5200ft. I made some other mistakes but that only accounted for about 9 minutes. It was fun and pretty with much open running.

Running (Street & Trail) 58:43 [3] 8.25 mi (7:07 / mi)

From the stands at UMD Track, up the Northwest Branch Trail to the end of the pavement and back. Someone turned-on Summer. The ~90F made me head for the woods. I was sluggish from the beginning. Thinking it was the heat, some aching in my right quad told me the effects of the ROGAIN were still being felt. I was only marginally better in the cooler and shady woods. Half mile splits on the trail: 3:35, 3:35, 3:31, 7:22 (28:56) to turnaround, 7:25 back to next marker, 3:33, 3:34, 3:35.
