orienteer race 31:00 [4] *** 2.6 km (11:55 / km)
ahr:173 18c

Sprint at UMSL. I did OK whenever I was reading the map. I had watched the Team Trials runners first, and thought I knew exactly how to get through the controls around the train tracks. So I put away my map and kept jogging. Just as I was approaching the train underpass, I saw a control out of the corner of my eye. I almost ran right past #5! That will teach me to assume anything...

I managed to jog a lot of the course. My legs got tired towards the end, especially on all the stairs. Overall, I was pleased with my run. I don't think the HR reflects my effort; 10 bpm must be due to the heat.

Nordic track 20:00 [2]

run/walk (warm up/cool down) 20:00 [3]

run/walk 55:00 [3]

Another long jog at PNS, another PR. It was tough to keep my pace today, since my HRM was acting up (forgot to spray Static Guard on my shirt). According to the watch, my HR was either 0, 80 or 193.

My legs felt dead this morning when I woke up, but then they were fine during the run. I got a little bit tired at the end, but no more than would be expected.

There were a lot of people out today, including another jogger on the upper trail, which hardly ever happens.

Walked around KU and Lawrence for 3 hours today, checking locations for the score o event next month.

Saw an interesting example of symbiosis: college guy, staring at the mess of beer cans on the front yard, starting to clean it up. Along comes a homeless man with a sack, who asks if he can have all the cans. Yes! Both folks are happy.

PTOC had a sprint event at Sar-Ko-Par park. I did a brisk walk, and tried to complete the course without any errors. Made one slight error when I missed an overgrown trail junction, but otherwise I hit everything cleanly.

Found a $20 bill on the course, so I treated Mike to a free dinner after the event.
