Orienteering race 59:48 [5] **** 6.2 km (9:39 / km) +260m 7:58 / km
spiked:11/13c

Red course at Clear Lake. I work for the meet all morning, no time for a warm up. It is cool crisp weather, after some running it is quite warm. Do alright, get stuck twice in areas with a lot of new fallen trees, but get most of the controls fine. Approach #11 too low, go down more, then figure it out and scramble up.

It was fun to run the fairly easy course. I stayed under an hour as I had planned/hoped for. Last meet of the season, time to rest and run.

Running 35:00 [3] 7.5 km (4:40 / km) +70m 4:28 / km

The "Read the important book" loop. I had to adjust the loop to the park police who was prominently hidden at the entrance of the river trail. Since it is officially closed after dusk, I made a u-turn and curved back on official black toppend public 14 hours usable roads.

Running 36:00 [3] 7.5 km (4:48 / km) +50m 4:39 / km

The "Global Warming Warning" loop. Running in shorts and T-shirt and sweating on December 1? Hm, weird. First the explosive thunderstorm, half an hour later the moon is out and a warm breeze, too.

Orienteering 1:00:00 [3] ** 7.0 km (8:34 / km) +180m 7:36 / km

Running at Anthony's Nose above the Bear Mountain Bridge with the USGS/hiking map. I have zero legs and the trails are very rocky in this area. Great view over the valley, have fun exploring new hills in my own backyard. I wonder, if West Point couldn't map the Camp Smith area. What I see, it looks like pleasant woods. But as a good citizen I don't enter the military reservation. Argh, not a good citizen, a good immigrant, ok.

Running 52:00 [3] 10.5 km (4:57 / km) +100m 4:44 / km

Good run, feels good to include a good hill. Since an uphill includes a downhill, I try to be careful and not run full speed on the asphalt road. I had found that in the last year I often had foot pain (plantar fasciitis) when running on hard surfaces in the winter. Probably the shoe and the surface is harder and the foot is hurt quickly in the cold, too. So I see that I run gently and roll the foot instead of hitting the ground hard.

Running 36:00 [3] 7.5 km (4:48 / km) +50m 4:39 / km

The "It's morning and I run already" loop. I do an easy run before hoping on the train to NYC. Lots of walking (344.3 calories) in the city, not logged. Lots of standing, not logged. Lots of stores, not logged. Go to a reading in the Goethehaus, which is so crowded that they put me on a waiting list. Get in anyway, it is the old purple rope trick: First they make it hard to get in and in the end everybody who doesn't give up gets in anyway. Good reading. Hope I can do the same thing with my book. Would be fun and I would have my seat guaranteed.

Running 52:00 [3] 10.1 km (5:09 / km) +70m 4:59 / km

The "Accelerated Circuit" loop plus one lap on Denning's Point, just before it gets dark. The usual paradox, the longer the runs are, the better I feel.
