Running (Road) 23:00 [2]

Easy jog round the hood. Early AM and the first few minutes were comically slow as I was pretty stiff, but then I loosened up.

Terrain (Mix) 10:00 [2]

Warmup. Didn't have much time since I was also the meet director. After sending everyone out on the mass start, I got in a short jog before heading out myself.

Orienteering race (Woods) 2:38:02 [4] *** 18.6 km (8:30 / km) +540m 7:25 / km

SLOC 3-hour at Hawn (1:15). Nice course by David Welsh - was tougher than I gave it credit for. I expected the winning time to be under 2:30, and it may have been if Mikell had decided to head this way prior to the Possom Trot. However, there was nobody in this field going to touch that mark. David Frei was the only other person to sweep.

Was pretty conservative for the first hour. Wasn't warmed up all the way, the woods were green, and some of the locations seemed like the sort where you could lose a bunch of time. Started running a lot harder in the second hour where I was going through more open areas. Overcooked it just a bit and faded near the end, but it was still good enough for the win. No big nav errors, something like 5 minutes worth of little stuff.

Orienteering (Woods) 1:18:00 [2] ***

Control pickup with Nish. We talked through the plan for each leg and then he led and I shadowed him. He's getting a lot better. Made the pickup more fun.


Note for any readers of my Carol's Team blog. I'm really sorry about the extended outage (and just about as mad as I can be at the provider). I'll post here when I get the site hosted somewhere a bit more responsive.

Easy jog round the hood.

Terrain (Mix) 38:00 [2]

Easy jog on the powerline cut, the main purpose being to break in my new Jalas prior to three hours of competition this weekend.

Cycling (Road) 1:02:00 [2]

In to work. Later start than usual should have meant more traffic, but I guess a lot of people are off this week. Still hit a bunch of lights.

Cycling (Road) 1:16:00 [2]

Back from work via Midland. Really nice out - probably last short-sleeve riding day of the year.

Running (Road) 25:00 [2]
weight:163lbs (rest day)

Late night run after a very long day of work just to loosen up a bit. Warm and humid. Felt like when I train nights in the summer to avoid the heat.
