Orienteering race 1:15:59 [4] *** 8.2 km (9:16 / km) +360m 7:36 / km
spiked:15/20c shoes: VJ Falcons 2

HVO event at Lewis Morris Park - Blue Course. Very open woods with great visibility, quite a bit of prickly stuff (mostly barberry), big hills, not much rock and a heavy trail network. Nice course set by Nadya Popova with lots of controls (20) which kept you off the trails and in the woods.

Had a decent run with several small errors adding to 4 or 5 minutes. Most of the mistakes were on short legs or from attack points where I wasn't careful enough with the compass direction. Was saved a few times by the good visibility and spotting the bag to correct. A good starter for the Spring season.

Temps in the low 40's with the sun out most of the time. Forerunner measured 9.25km actual distance covered.

shoes: NB878 - #7

66S and back. Where is Spring? It was 32F and breezy, but sunny. Missed running yesterday because a meeting ran late at work (plus it was even windier than today).

Road Run intervals 48:47 intensity: (31:45 @3) + (17:02 @5) 5.93 mi (8:14 / mi)

Road Intervals. 10 x 0.25mi @ 1:45 with 1:30 recovery (pushed a bit and actually averaged 1:42). Splits: 143, 143, 146 (uphill), 138 (slight down), 145, 141, 140, 140, 144, 144. Mostly out and back Shaker Museum Rd. with a brief out and back on 66 to the north. Legs getting a bit stiff and tired by the 10th one. 39F with snow flurries and some snow pellets as I finished. Spring starts Thursday?

Trail Run 1:28:40 [3] * 7.56 mi (11:44 / mi)
shoes: NB 809

Trails at Schenectady Museum Nature Preserve. Trails were covered with various depths of snow, slush, ice, mud, and water so were pretty tough to run on. Rarely got into a steady pace, but good HTFU training. Carried the o-map, but didn't read it very much since I'm familiar with the trails from running and course setting here. Trail running part was two segments with a road run in between (logged separately). Overcast and about 40F with some spritzes of rain and snow.

Road Run 27:07 [3] 2.88 mi (9:25 / mi)
shoes: NB 809

After about an hour of trail running, took a jaunt on the bike trail which runs through the area, mostly to take a break from the snow, slush and mud. Ran on the grass beside the paved part of the bike trail whenever I could. They must plow this part of the bike trail, since other parts of it were still snow covered. Straight, flat and boring except for the side trip I took on Ferry Rd. out to the Mohawk River (the ferry is long gone). Did another half hour on the trails to finish up.
