orienteering race 23:57 [4] 2.65 km (9:02 / km)

Fair Hill Sprint. Wasn't going to run it but glad I did. Brain freeze on #9 - got way left early and totally missed that I had already gotten on the other side of the spur so climbed the next one and wondered why there were all these trails up there. Kept moving in the right direction at least while I figured it out and probably only lost a minute or so.

Raked leaves for an hour. Won't call it training but it's probably all I'll have time for today.

running 1:04:30 [1]

DVOA Tuesday Training. Dasha and I ran together for about 4 miles on Forbidden Drive. Kept the pace at talking speed for most of it (about 11min/mi) although we came back faster than we went out. The extra 20 minutes on Tom and Clem come from counting the walk down into the Wissahickon and back out as my warm-up/cool down. I'm claiming it as training even if the guys don't! :)

orienteering race 1:28:14 [3] 7.55 km (11:41 / km)

Red course on the new Tyler State Park map. Course setters took maximum advantage of fun little pockets of nice woods but there were long trail runs inbetween and my legs were dead. Still, a great day.

It's interesting that I seem to have lost confidence in my orienteering to some degree. I would navigate perfectly to the controls but the flags were hung very, very low and while not hidden, not always easy to spot. When I couldn't see the flag right away my first thought was always what did I do wrong - which was crazy since the navigating was really straightforward for the most part. In every case the flag was just down in the gully or reentrant and hung in a way that you couldn't see it until you at least started to climb down. But even after the first couple so that I knew the flags would be hung that way, I would still doubt my navigating first off.

biking 2:23:00 [3] 29.0 mi (4:56 / mi)

Biked out to Valley Forge and home. Thought about going out early enough to join Wyatt for his map training exercise but that didn't happen. Legs very, very tired on the way home so probably just as well.
