orienteering 1:09:59 [3] *** 5.45 km (12:50 / km) +200m 10:51 / km

Re-ran the green course from last weekend. It was interesting to see where I had really lost time. Lost about 4 minutes mucking around before and after the first control. This I expected. Lost another 1:25 on a control I thought I had done well (#9) but in thinking about it I realize now I had hesitated about 25 meters short of the control wondering if I had gone far enough and looking at the contours and the map before deciding I needed to keep climbing. Interesting that I hadn't realized it was that much time. Lost 3:40 on #10 when I pulled way right. Was surprised it was that much. Most surprising was #6. My route last weekend was horrible, but I didn't go much faster today when I took a much more straight route. I guess the trails were faster enough than climbing through the rocks that going around was not so bad a choice. But if that's the case, then I should have dropped to the trail right away. An interesting exercise and perhaps I'll go run the course a third time in a few weeks. I have to say I also felt better today so pushed harder - I'm sure that was worth an extra couple minutes.

warm up/cool down 10:00 [1]

Actually tried to warm up a little before doing the course. Mostly just trying to focus.

Easy ride out to Valley Forge and back. Very flat bike trail along the river (except the hill down to start and up to end). Here's the route:

trail 1:14:25 [3]

TNT Media. Normal Tyler loop with Dasha and Bob. Jogged first two hills and 2/3 of third; a week ago I had to walk both of the first two and we didn't do the third. Dasha and Bob ran a bit further.

running 1:18:00 [3]

TNT - solo effort. :(
5 miles on the drive at about 10:30 pace but at least I didn't stop and walk tonight.

I stuck to tradition and had a sumptious dinner afterwards. Dessert, thanks to Eddie, was special raspberry TN tarts made with freshly picked wild raspberries. Mmm-mm good. We'll see how many make it to Thursday night!
