Orienteering race (Green Y course) 1:08:09 [4] *** 5.21 km (13:05 / km) +230m 10:43 / km
spiked:11/12c shoes: Jala Jukola Spider 6 (old)

Smooth and steady pace; slowed down (as usual) by the hill climbs. But the course was decent, including a few legs with route choice that DIDN'T involve just climbing up and over a big spur (versus running WAY around).

Orienteering race (Sprint) 31:44 [5] *** 2.7 km (11:45 / km) +60m 10:35 / km
spiked:11/12c shoes: Jala Jukola Spider 6 (old)

If you ran this on the beelines you were at somewhat of a disadvantage because of flag placement, for example on #2. If you went down the trail from 1, you could see the flag, but if you went on the beeline, both the feature (narrow fence, I think) and flag were "hidden" behind a wide-enough tree. Bummer.

Lost a couple minutes on the trail between 5 and 6 when a 6" high rock jumped up and tripped me (skinned couple layers off my hand, hit/bruised my knee, that sort of stuff), so I was little slow getting started again, but managed to lope on through the rest of the course without further injury.

So I could probably have done about 3 or so minutes faster...

Exerc. Class warm up/down 55:00 [2]

We did more step in class today--yeay! And the shoulder exercises weren't as excruciating as in recent classes...

Fitness equipment 25:00 [1]

About 10 minute on various strengthening equipment (at the Y) that work the upper and lower body, getting them set up and learning how they work so I can go back and do it myself next time. Then I spent 15 minutes on the elliptical because I was there.

Walking 30:58 [3] 2.0 mi (15:29 / mi)
shoes: Saucony Shadow 6000 8.5 #2

Had to mail some letters/bills, and it was approaching gorgeous outside (mid-50's with the sun trying to come out), so I took a walk. I just hope it's this nice this weekend....

Exerc. Class 55:00 [1]

Strength and aerobics; no step. Blech.

The stretching is almost as important as the aerobic benefit; my right hip area always tightens up more after I run than my left for some reason.

Running (paved) long 1:13:42 [3] 5.98 mi (12:19 / mi)
shoes: Trail NB 706 9D # 1

46 and cloudy; very little breeze. Parked at corner of Bashford & 32 & ran "around the block" there--S on Bashford, W on Brown, N on Co17 and NY203, E on 32 back to the car. That was only 5.65 and I wanted to do a little longer so I went S of Bashford a little and turned around.

Knees felt the pounding the whole time. How do people come to like running this far? Of course, it helps to have a runner's metabolism and body frame, too.
