Morning constitutional. Long weekend turned out pretty well even if original and poorly conceived plan did not. Cost in all: tank of gas, entry fees, lost compass, antique wall sconces and 1930's poster. The latter from my wife's favorite antique show at Concord MA Armory- good Valentines day outing!
As for lessons learned, realized I was burned out from 4 hours of dancing on my feet with board strategy presentation on Thursday- work supports life-right!
Going forwards, will plan ahead for Flying Pig (one of my favorites from Indiana days), West point and WCOC event :-). It's a plan, and now for goal setting.
Running warm up/down 32:00  4.5 km (7:07 / km) weight:63.7kg
Before, during and after intervals
Running (intervals) 9:36 2.5 km (3:50 / km) ahr:131 max:162
Intervals on treadmill at around 3k pace (6x400 and 1x100 with 90 secs between with jog recovery - pulse below 130 at start of next work)- felt around 90% effort and zone 4 mostly.
Orienteering (ski) 46:00  *** 6.0 km (7:40 / km)
An orienteering misadventure - logging it as a form of therapy :-) Drove up to Beaver Brook Farm in Vt this am but felt mentally tired- warmed up OK. Set off in right direction for 1 and 2, then headed for 12 instead of 3! Problem seemed to be focal plane for my regular O bifocals with the position of the map holder - hard to focus. Course corrected to 3 via a dotted trail and headed to 4- realized I'd lost my thumb compass. Why I chose to wear one over a ski glove is beyond me- anyhow backtracked to see if i could find it- no such luck, then headed to 5 - only it was 6! At that point realized my head "wasn't in it", so bailed and went back to look for thumbie one more time. Again no luck, headed in to a DNF before insanity prevailed. Oh well - kinda laughed it off and decided to head for home as no accommodation had been secured (all in all a last minute thing which I will put down to work overload last week). There is a moral to this story which hopefully I will register for future reference.
Upside: drive back through Franconia was pleasant and sunny and I got home in one piece.
