Running 31:00 [3]

Out scouting a possible route for a terrain test loop. Really a running test loop, since it doesn't actually go off-trail. Looking to include as much climb as possible (this is a very flat area), and minimize paved surface running (not only to avoid injury, but also because a cursory examination of orienteering races over the past few years suggests very little running on paved surfaces is involved - even in sprints if you look at a large cross-section of courses and average them out).

The loop I ran today looks to be in the 30-min range at steady pace, so I guess I'll be shooting for mid-20's in a "race". Holger could do it in around 20, perhaps?

Terrible sleep preparation prior to COCs, but that's how the cookie crumbles. Would that I could only work exactly when and how I want to, and turn the pager off at night.... Still, this is a great job and I did manage to take 5 weeks off this summer, plus a couple of other 1-2 week blocks earlier in the year, plus at least 2 more 1+ week periods coming up. So I probably shouldn't quibble about a few hours of sleep anyway.
