ARDF (80m) 1:25:29  *** 8.5 km (10:03 / km)
5c shoes: Brooks Running 20
US 80m ARDF Champs at Umstead Park! 1st woman, 3rd overall! I took the transmitters in the wrong order, but the order I went in was nearly as good because of the trail network. I started out running north and heard 3 in that direction, so I decided to go to 3 first. On my way, I tripped over a rock and fell hard into a rock pile, smashing my knee straight into a rock. I kind of lay there on the ground for a little bit, trying to convince myself to get up, and then had to mess around getting my receiver tuned back to the correct frequency. I finally started running again in time to just miss getting to 3 on cycle, but didn't realize how close I was to the transmitter. I then ran past it during the next 5 minutes, turned around, and then managed to run past it again during the next 5 minutes. I finally managed to find it on the cycle after that. I was vaguely annoyed with myself, but was glad to finally find it. I headed over to the trail to go south to 1, ran down and found it pretty easily. I headed up to 4 next, which was another long trail run, which went smoothly. I was reminded of how hot it was though, as I was running along the trail in my long pants while everyone around me was in running shorts. Ugh. I thought 5 was one ridge closer to the finish than it actually was, so I ran over to that ridge, realized I was on the wrong ridge, and then had to go down and up a pretty steep (for NC) reentrant to get to the correct ridge. The run into the finish was a nice run through the woods and along the river. I was annoyed with myself about the stupidity at number 5, and I was really starting to feel the heat and humidity, but it's always nice to run through Umstead. Super fun weekend of ARDF!
Stretching 10:00 
Normal stretching back home without any foam rolling and limited hip flexor stretches. My knee is definitely sore and when combined with my ginormous IT band bruise, my right leg is feeling pretty beat up. I iced it quite a bit today, and hopefully it will be fine after a day or two.
