Running (paved) warm up/down 4:00 [3]
shoes: Jala Jukola Spider 6 #3

Jogged down to the rest rooms and back before going out on the long/red course at Tawasentha.

Orienteering race 1:27:35 [4] *** 7.42 km (11:48 / km) +273m 9:58 / km
spiked:23/25c slept:7.5 shoes: Jala Jukola Spider 6 #3

Very nice long course on this small town park map, designed by Will Kennerly. He used several butterfly loops to add distance and interest even in the more open park section east of the Normanskill Creek. I looked at the "ford the creek" option from 10-11 but decided I didn't want to chance swimming. :-) I was careful in the steeper gullied forested hillside in the SW portion of the map because I had gone off the map last time here. Also because it had rained and the clay hillside was treacherous. My non-spikes [edit: non-spiked controls] were more route choice errors than difficulty finding the control.

I enjoyed the "tour de Tawasentha" -- hard to come up with new places to go here, but the course was fun even with the off-and-on drizzle most of the day. Good turnout of EMPO regulars.
12 PM


Added FR.
Straight line distance 6.2 km, and Glen counted 270m climb(!).

10 AM

Pilates class 55:00 [1]

Used rings, so we did lunges as well as other nice hip exercises. Instructor doesn't really like using the ring so we only do it about once a month.
11 AM

Fitness equipment (elliptical) 40:00 [2]
slept:8.0 shoes: Sauc.Shad.6000#7-2012H

First 20 minutes I didn't have a level set so did whatever came up; second 20 minutes was at level 3. 1.85 mi

Enjoying birthday ice cream (I know, really bad) in honor of my younger son's birthday tomorrow.

Pilates class 55:00 [0]

No tools. One of the moves (half pushup with one leg extended, elbows pointed back instead of out) bothered my left knee (kneecap didn't like it) so I did them without the leg extensions. Shoulder still complained.
11 AM

Walking (indoor track) 28:31 [2] 2.0 mi (14:15 / mi)
slept:7.0 shoes: Sauc.Shad.6000#7-2012H

Easy day, did two miles on track at the Y; much, much cooler than outside where it's still 89 but not storming here (yet) at almost 4pm. 14:06 and 14:25 miles, stopping to stretch in between because various muscles were complaining.
9 PM


Added QR images for the Saturday events to their entries.

My QR for Farsta Medium H-A:

From WesternMass5Day2012

29/32 overall; 8/11 women (including one M/F team)
I figured I'd finish in about 2 hours or so, considering the heat and the climb, and I was pretty close.

Orienteering race (Long) 2:08:01 [3] **** 8.4 km (15:15 / km) +375m 12:28 / km
spiked:13/14c shoes: Jala Jukola Spider 6 #2

"Medium" mass start Farsta at Mt. Tom, starting at the pavilion at the top of the hill. (Short had a couple of butterfly wings; Medium and Long had a map exchange at the pavilion). Both legs of the Farsta went east into the gnarly hilly section between the main park road (E-W) and the (closed) road to Mt. Nonotuck to the NE. Glen and I both happened to have the same forkings (H then A), so it was easy to compare splits. :-)

I had people around to most of the controls (either going in or coming out) but I was pretty much on my navigation again. I think that was partly due to taking safer routes sometimes (using trails) rather than going straight. Only real problem was at the depression, #45; I crossed the ride and came up the reentrant but didn't go quite far enough and wandered a bit just outside the circle until I identified the ditch to the west of the depression and knew which way to go.

From S/F to the saddle, #31, I took the trail of the east side of the large clearing where the Mt. Tom Billygoat started and then contoured around after climbing past the spur east of the trail. Sandy and others took the road route which was longer but a much gentler climb -- I never saw that as an option, though. I did take the road back from the depression to the pond, and enjoyed the mostly downhill jog. I walked most of the rest, though, except on flat trails or on downhills.

H: 32-48-33-46-44-41-43-39 > 40
A: 31-33-34-44-45-47 > F

SL= 3.3 + 3.0 km, 180 + 145m climb
