Orienteering race 46:04 [4] *** 4.6 km (10:01 / km)
spiked:11/13c shoes: VJ Falcons

Local meet at Schenectady Musuem Nature Preserve - the debut of e-punching at an EMPO local event. A fine day for orienteering - upper 40's with some sun. An OK run on a map which is a bit flaky in places (but I've run and set courses here so that's no excuse). Lots of unmapped (mtn bike) trails and vegetation needs updating. Lost a few minutes by not checking the compass when I should have. 650m "run-in" to the finish, which actually was a pretty good route choice leg. This is a small map (~ 1km^2 at 1:7500) so this was the longest course offered. Map has lots of contours, but the interval is supposedly 5ft.

Road Run 34:15 [3] 4.04 mi (8:29 / mi)
shoes: NB878 - #7

Syring Rd., Albany Tpke west and back. Another wintry Spring day - 40F, overcast and breezy - no snow in the forecast until Thursday. Ran the return half 1:15 faster than the first half, which may have something to do with ~200ft of uphill on the out which is downhill on the return.

Interestingly, the mile posts on Albany Turnpike (from when it was the main route between Boston and Albany) are almost exactly one mile and two miles from my house using the route I ran today (which is about 0.7mi before I get to Alb Tpke). Looks like rods and chains are just as accurate as the GPS thingy. I turned around 13 miles shy of Albany.
