Possum Trot XIV

Map 1 and Map 2.

This was awesome! I felt good, orienteered well, and just had a good run. And I won, which is always a bonus. Third overall (behind ebuckley and Spike) was a pleasant surprise - don't think I can claim top 3 overall in any other long O races...

It was a cold day, low 20s to start, high 20s to finish, but except for my hands, which were cold for the first ~20 minutes, I only felt cold once - the one time I was like, "oh no, what did I do?!" on the way to 30. (It was a silly mistake, but it was actually in an okay place to be, so not a disaster.)

I think my best move was skipping 6.

QR and more writeup later.

Kansas State Champs at Clinton Overlook.

A fun course set by Peggy, who couldn't possibly have known that it was going to be funktastically windy cold in the open areas. It wasn't actually that *cold* (almost 40?) but with the wind it was fairly brutal, certainly worse than the 20s on Sunday.

Took a bit to get into the groove, as I goofed 1 and then took a bit to make up my mind on the way to 3. But the rest was fine. Didn't feel like I could really move, though, which was a bit disconcerting.

I wore Spike's headcam for the run and we all watched it later. The highlight was probably the moment of deheadcamination followed by headcam recovery procedures. Hopefully Spike will make the video available and we can do some kind of map + route + video thing.

Spent much of today "assisting" with water survival, which mostly meant watching the training while sitting by the pool in almost 80 degree weather. Oh, and operating the winch to drag people through the water. Water was very cold, glad I didn't have to actually swim around in a bunch of wet clothes.

Then it was off to KS for Possum Trot weekend.

Running (trail) 55:00 [3] 4.2 mi (13:06 / mi) +330m 10:32 / mi
shoes: Leo (F-Lite 230)

A little jaunt in Sabino Canyon. Very nice day, mid-60s already by the time we got out there. I ran over to Blackett's Ridge and up until it seemed like it was time to turn around. Timed it pretty well, but boy, there was a bunch of trail still left on that ridge. Almost all of the ascent on the ridge was brisk hike, it's steep!
7 PM

Hiking 30:00 [1] **

I spent a few hours acting as an aggressor for survival training out on the range. It was at night, and I navigated by map and compass, not that there was much to see on the map. Plenty of cacti to see, though.

Cycling intervals (spin) 55:00 [3]

My turn to be dragged to something. Jesse and I had REI plans this evening and it just so happened that a spin class was on her agenda immediately beforehand. So I went, too. It was pretty good, once I got the hang of the resistance wheel. Unfortunately I didn't grab my watch before leaving so I can't see how crazy the HR was. Seems like a nice cross-training activity. Also, I produce a lot of sweat when there's no wind. Copious amounts.

This was at O2 Fitness downtown, which we always run past on Monday evenings and I laugh at the people exercising inside as we run by. The instructor recognized me and said, "I see you running by every Monday." Apparently they laugh at us as much as we laugh at them.

REI was followed by Zinburger w/Melissa. It was really delicious. I forgot how good burgers could taste.

Running 45:48 intensity: (4 @0) + (2:14 @1) + (13:02 @2) + (13:39 @3) + (12:59 @4) + (3:50 @5) 5.64 mi (8:07 / mi)

WOG. 'Tis the season for Tues afternoon staff meetings to go quite late, since everyone else changed their clocks - silly people. This means I will often be late to WOG on Tuesdays. :-( We've had some cold weather (for Tucson) lately (overnight in the low 20s!) but it was just a bit under 50 for WOG. I dragged Caroline with me!

Got there as people were starting the workouts, so Caroline and I just ran two laps (1 mile) for warmup and then joined up with Aly, Chia-Chi, Blacketts, and Craig for some mile repeats. We did 4, at various levels of cruisability. Caroline managed quite well. As Aly said, "If this is how you run out of shape, I'd be afraid to see you when you're in shape!" Or something like that. Still trying to convince her that she should run the 3k on Saturday with the CSU crowd.

Ran just a lap for warmdown and then headed home. Tilapia (w/ capers! mmmm capers!) for dinner.

Running (road) 36:00 intensity: (1:06 @1) + (31:11 @2) + (3:05 @3) + (38 @4) 5.69 km (6:20 / km) +15m 6:15 / km
ahr:163 max:187 shoes: Second is first loser (NB)

Maynards w/ Jesse and Caroline, attempting to catch Melissa. Unfortunately, I think by skipping the 4th Ave out and back we actually passed Melissa on the route. Fortunately, Joe P. caught up to her and kept her company.

This was followed by trivia, where we had a somewhat coincidental and strange meeting of all of the former occupants of the extra room - Caroline, Jesse, and mini-Kissy. Worlds colliding!

We didn't do well at trivia. I mean, seriously, who cares who the top 4 NBA scorers of all time are?
