Orienteering race (Woods) 2:57:38 [4] *** 22.8 km (7:47 / km) +455m 7:05 / km
41c weight:178lbs

SLOC 3-hour at S-F (1:15). Great run for first two hours, then poked my eye on a branch and couldn't see well. Lots of mistakes after that which almost cost me the race, but I managed to pull it out to clinch the death match 4-2.

Vision returned to normal after a couple hours.

Cycling (Road) 3:46:00 [3]

A rather balmy day provided an opportunity to get in the 6 hills/6 flags loop. I usually do this ride as a tune up for State champs, but didn't get to it last spring (although I did get in an abridged version). Rode at a relaxed pace, but 4000 feet vertical does get your attention even at an easy pace. Now the only outstanding "tradition" ride for the year is the Labide century. If the weather holds up, I might get that in next week.

Orienteering (Woods) 1:35:00 [2] ***
30c weight:174lbs

Control picking exercises at Babler (1:15). As usual when I'm going slow, I had trouble staying focused. No big booms, but things could have been cleaner. I guess that's better than having trouble staying focused when you're going fast.

Running (Track) 1:26:00 [4]

Almost Yassos at 2:52. Started out running 800's at 2:54, but that seemed too easy so I dropped it to 2:52 after the third one. Held that fine, but 8 and 9 started feeling a bit stiff, so I skipped #10 rather than risk trashing my legs for Saturday.

Actual splits: 2:52.9, 2:54.3, 2:54.5, 2:50.0 (oops), 2:52.1, 2:51.3, 2:51.7, 2:51.6, 2:52.0

Running (Road) 38:00 [2]

Was going to run with Brian and Jeff as this is my last day at the Creve Coeur office, but Jeff declined and Brian was nowhere to be found. Then Kate called and said there was a ton of leftover food from the baby shower she was hosting, so I ran home, ate a bunch, and then ran back.

Running (Road) 30:00 [2]

After work I got in some Possum Trot prep. Parked at Laumeier and ran to/from Emmennegger.

Orienteering (Woods) 22:04 [4] *** 2.5 km (8:50 / km) +95m 7:25 / km

Emmennegger Test Loop (1:10). Good speed through the light green. Big bobble on one control cost me a PR.

Orienteering (Park) 16:00 [3] ***

Finsihed up with some sprint-style orienteering at Laumeier. Actually cut through the woods on a few controls, which was slower than going around, but I wanted to practice keeping my speed up when going from trail to thick.
