A couple dozen miles easy. About 75 min on trail at Longview and Queeny. The rest on grass.

Placing the remaining controls and putting epunch units on all of them at CC Lake (1:10).

Orienteering (Woods) 32:00 [2] ***
10c shoes: Rocklite 315

Control pickup. Meet went well. Turnout was fair, but I wouldn't have wanted more since I was running it with only a few helpers. Those who came seemed to enjoy it. David and Emily smoked their respective genders.

Terrain (Grass) 35:00 [2] *
shoes: Rocklite 315

Two School Loop. Off this morning since I'm working until midnight. At this point things were quite OK.
9 AM

Orienteering (Woods) 1:37:00 [1] ***
18c shoes: Speedcross 3

And then things started not going so well. Got a little behind because Kate's printer was out of ink, so when I went over to CC Lake to put out controls, I forgot to bring my bag which has my whistle and the bright lanyard which I attach to my keys. Naturally, today was the day that I tripped and dislocated my shoulder (again; I think that's #15 but I've honestly lost count). No problem to reset it, but I forgot to check if I'd dropped anything. About half an hour later I realized my keys were gone. No chance in finding a black key fob in the leaves, though I did check. So, shoulder hurts like hell, I'm out about $300 for a new key fob, and I didn't get done...

Terrain (Grass) 49:00 [2] *

... because I had to run back home to get my other keys. At least the remaining locations are the easy ones, so I should be able to get them out in the morning with time to spare. Then again...

2x4T 1R.
While completely accurate, those six characters seem woefully inadequate for describing the brutality of split tempo.

Old Farm Loop.

Running (Road) 44:00 [2]

Easy jog round the hood...

Gym (Weights) 16:00 [5]

...with a stop at the gym (right after they opened) for two sets, heavy, upper only.

Big Lake Paved. Six striders at the end.
4 PM

Running (Track) 52:00 [4]
shoes: Grid A2

4x800@2:56 400R. Wasn't sure if I could do six on pace and decided I'd rather run fewer at the right speed than the right number too slow. Target, of course, is to do ten at this pace, but I don't expect to get there for another month or so.
