Orienteering race (green course) 1:20:53 [4] *** 5.0 km (16:11 / km) +140m 14:11 / km
spiked:8/11c shoes: Jala Jukola Spider 6 #2

Gorgeous day for orienteering, though a little on the humid side. Tried out a new shirt from LL Bean, which worked okay.

Haven't quite analyzed my "misses" but they weren't nearly as bad as last week's at Ansonia. Off to the north to 1 (#55) (maybe 30-40m) but I knew which way to correct. Slightly left to 3 (#56) but again, knew which way to correct. And at 8 (#59), hit a thicket near a stone wall but it was one to the west. Saw Glen at my 9 (60) and beat him (by 2 sec) to 10 by focusing - yay. Hesitated leaving 10, though, and he had a nice run to the go control. Will (feet) helped me find the streamered trail in to finish that a lot of people ran right by.

Yummy homemade choc. chip cookies at the refreshment table were a big hit. :-) Nice chatting with Lyn & others afterwards.

Walking hills 39:08 [2] 2.6 mi (15:03 / mi)
shoes: Saucony Shadow 6000 8.5 #4-Y

To MB "church" and back, including hill up Alb Tpk to Syring.


Finally able to get scanner to work, so I have my track from Saturday ready... I know I had reasons for going where I did to # 2; they just weren't good ones. :-)

Pilates class 55:00 [1]

Tuesday pilates class at the Y. We did some low-to-high planks that I'm feeling now in the shoulders. The other exercises didn't feel too hard.

Walking warm up/down (treadmill) 17:56 [2] 0.49 mi (36:35 / mi)

Hiking hills (treadmill) 32:04 [3] 2.47 mi (12:59 / mi)

"Hiking" on the treadmill -- started at 8% and dropped to 5% then 3%, upping the speed a little as I lowered the incline.

I was testing a new pair of trail shoes that I had ordered by mail (Road Runner Sports), wondering if I could find a better fit than the New Balance ones I've been using (which don't have enough arch support so my feet turn inwards a bit).

The Saucony ProGrid TR I was testing felt tight to start (other Sauconys usually have wider toe boxes which is what I need), and by the time I was done I was feeling all sorts of little leg muscles that I usually don't feel, from the hips to the ankles. The shoes' heels (mid and outsole) were huge and I would hit the inside of my ankles if I tried to run in them; and they seemed to tilt my feet OUTwards more than any other shoes I own. I'm sending them back. Too bad, because I wear their Shadow 6000 shoes all the time for running everywhere but trails.
