Walking 33:00 [1] 2.0 mi (16:30 / mi)
shoes: Salomon XA Kuban

I was a slug all day so I went for a 2-mile walk around the "big block" around 5 pm. (Woodland east to the cul de sac, trail to Heathland, Heathland to Maple, to the Rt 104 path, to Bay Rd, and back home. No dog. Hanna hurt her back left leg 2 weeks ago, getting it caught on something while jumping out of the car. She's improved a lot, to where she can go up and down stairs, and has a minimal limp, but we're not letting her go very far on her walks until it seems to be fully healed.

Genesee River Trail, with trailsnail. Mid 50's, overcast, and pretty windy.

The river crossing at the Middle Falls was closed. Curious, because it was open yesterday. I don't know if they have a set schedule as to when it's open vs closed, or if there is some way to find out in advance. We had planned on crossing the river and covering the relatively short section of the trail on the other side.

Genesee County Park, long advanced.

Pretty bad. I should have paid attention to the 6.9 km straight-line distance and backed off to the short advanced. There were lots of opportunities for trail running and some road running, but I'm not in shape enough to take advantage. Plus it didn't help that I ran 5 miles (one of my longer runs these days) just yesterday afternoon. From the beginning, my legs felt dead.

I'll know when I enter my splits where my problem points were, but my guess is that there were many. No huge navigation blunders, but lots of places where my route choice was no doubt sub-optimum, plus of course many places where the ability to run continuously on trails would have been a huge help.

I'm not a real fan of creating a long course in a venue that isn't all that large, by going back and forth multiple times. Especially annoying, due to my lack of fitness more than anything, was the second to last control which was a long leg headed south, followed by a long leg headed back north to the final control and the finish.

My GPS said I climbed 618 feet which seemed like a lot for a park not really noted for lots of steep hills, but I think I believe it, because my Fitbit (which has an altimeter, and is usually pretty believable) said 660 feet.

shoes: Adidas Terrex

Short Advanced course at Alasa Farms. Did the course with trailsnail.

Had a little trouble making sense of the somewhat vague trails going to #1 but did OK. I was concerned about the apparent steepness of the gorge on the straight-line route from 1 to 2, so we took a long detour, going right past #9 and having an easier descent and climb. I know this cost us time, but at my age I'm reluctant to tackle the really steep stuff. No real issues the rest of the way, although we were moving slowly the whole time. We essentially walked the entire way, being wary of tripping hazards even on trails, which in this venue are generally relatively rough. Interestingly, had a slight bobble going to #9 even though we had passed it previously, on the way from 1-2. From 8 to 9, stayed too close to the stream and had to backtrack a bit to get to 9. No major time loss, just a bit frustrating to lose any time at all on a control that I had previously encountered.
