orienteer 1:48:34 [4] *** 10.0 km (10:51 / km)
ahr:157 15c

My day began with a memorial service for Jane Betros. Many orienteers were there; Gene and Dick shared nice comments and memories of Jane during the service. Betsy had put together a large collection of photographs from her mother's life. Included some snapshots of a very young-looking Spike, and the never-aging image of Dave L.

Then, since Jane made the first O map of SMP, it seemed fitting to honor her memory today by running my test loop. Weather was much better than the first time (although 20 degrees colder; bbrrr!) Footing was easy, with a few inches of fine, soft snow. (We're having an usually snowy winter.) I tried to push the pace, especially towards the end, when I get tired. Knocked a big chunk of time off the first run. Which just shows how much I can improve simply by reading the map better.

It was a beautiful day to be out in the woods; Jane would've loved it.

Time lost: 2.2% Consistency 14.0


Tweaked my right knee a few times today; sometimes it really hurt. Time to return to I&I, taping and PT for a while. Also, Mike has been gone for about 24 hours, and already the house is a complete mess. So easy to slide back into my "single" ways :)

orienteer 1:01:49 [3] 4.14 km (14:56 / km)
ahr:152 14c

Rerun of Wyandotte test loop. I felt like I was moving well, and cleanly. The ground was frozen, with no snow. I was sure my time today would be much better than my first run. When I finally glanced at my watch near the end, I was quite dismayed to see how slow I was. I pushed a bit on the last few controls, but still finished a few seconds slower than the first run. Bummer.

I feel like I haven't slept well in more than a week. Maybe I'm just a bit run down?
