orienteering 1:15:00 [2] ***

I ran a training course at Rockcrusher. I made an effort to pick routes that were largely in the woods. That was good, but also a bit more work than a regular course at Rockcrusher.

There was still a bit of snow on the ground. A light drizzle fell the entire run. The temp was around 40F. So the snow was slushy. Without neoprene socks, my feet would have frozen.

My orienteering was mostly ok. I had a bit of slop on one leg after I'd been out about 55 minutes.

I think Matt was running the south shore trails. I spotted a parked car that looked like his. I saw two sets of fresh running shoe tracks.

There were a bunch of eagles on the ice along the dam. I counted 8 on the way out.

running 25:00 [2]

Short slushy/muddy/slippery run on West Campus, including 1 x HU/ML/HE.


Wednesday Feb 20 #

other 25:00 [1]

Snow. That meant shoveling. The snow was kind of heavy, so it was a fair amount of work.


running 30:00 [2]

I shuffled around on West Campus. The snow was a bit crusty. It was kind of fun to run, but it made the pace even slower than usual.


Tuesday Feb 19 #

running 45:00 [2]

Jogging on West Campus. Snow began falling about 15 minutes in. It was quite nice. I like running when it is snowing. I'm guessing the commute tomorrow could be a mess - planning to work from home part of the day to avoid the mess.


Sunday Feb 17 #

orienteering 1:35:00 [2] ***

I set a longish course (~8.5K?) at Clinton State Park. I jogged around the course, keeping a slow/easy pace (partly because I'm slow and partly because of the snow on the ground).

It was fun and I felt pretty good. I got tired after about 65-70 minutes. My back was a little sore at the end, but didn't bother me at all running.
