Orienteering (Gay City 98 Troll Cup Blu) 1:27:12 [3] *** 11.24 km (7:45 / km) +330m 6:46 / km
ahr:142 max:195 19c shoes: Salomon XA Pro

Gorgeous day - mid 50's, no snow in the woods - you don't get many of these in mid-January, so I dug out an old Troll Cup map and hit the woods. Although I've run many of these legs, and visited most of these controls in the past, I have no recollection of actually having run this course in its entirety. Actually quite surprised to break 90 minutes. Perhaps I'll be dicing Chiles with the Habeneros yet?

Postscript - 1998 winner Peter Anderson 87:04

A very fine run on a very fine day. Good way to end the week - easy sampler run tomorrow (Strider meeting at 9:15) and then whatever the Dewitt's have up their sleeve for Sunday should result in a fairly low volume weekend

Run - Road warm up/down 12:00 [1]
shoes: Salomon XA Pro

to/from start/finish on park roads

Exercises (various) 10:00 [1]

Run - Trail tempo (Crandalls - outer loop) 25:00 [3] 5.0 km (5:00 / km) +165m 4:18 / km
ahr:144 max:178 rhr:45 slept:6.0 weight:169lbs shoes: Kumasi GTX

The usual trail loop, lots of blowdown, quite a few new 'ponds' to run around & through. Ran from main lot rather than back lot. Feet were noticeably heavy (Kumasi's are light hikers - forgot to bring real trail running shoes). Perhaps training in heavier shoes is like weight training for the legs?

Felt good to run a short, brisk run (sprint pace) as opposed to longer slower runs. Looking forward to seeing the local schedules & sprints...

Trail Run - Long / Easy (Vernon Rail Trail) 1:38:15 [3] 19.3 km (5:05 / km) +100m 4:58 / km
ahr:131 max:174 rhr:42 slept:8.5 weight:171lbs shoes: Salomon XA Pro

pouring rain, 50ish. Opted for rail trail for clean footing since I didn't even bother taking my glasses with me (nothing to trip over). Wind gusting to 40mph had the rain nearly horizontal at times - lots of twigs & debris on trail.

Turned around at 6 miles due to some chafing (wrong shorts) so didn't quite make my 2 hour goal - but will count this one anyway due to extreme conditions - it was an effort worthy of 2 hours :-)

rhr:44 slept:7.5 weight:172lbs

busy day at work, wasn't planning on another day off (missed Sunday too) but what can you do?

And tomorrows gonna pour - can I muster enough ambition to get out there tomorrow?

Orienteering (Coups Sawmill) 1:07:53 [3] *** 8.6 km (7:54 / km)
ahr:125 max:153 10c rhr:48 slept:6.0 weight:168lbs shoes: Salomon XA Pro

Map run at Coups Sawmill, clear, cold, windy. Good footing on windblown base, up to 8 inches powder in hollows. Planned on 90 minutes, but starting to get chilled and lacking energy so cut it short.

Run - Trail (Sampler & Moonlight) 59:23 [3] 11.0 km (5:24 / km)
ahr:127 max:151 rhr:48 slept:7.5 weight:171lbs shoes: Adidas Response Trail XI

Sampler plus moonlight w/ Ken Clark. Warm, mid 50's, light rain at start, turning windblown torrential by halfway through - but once you're wet, what the hell... Didn't bother to even try to avoid puddles, lakes and streams - thoroughly soaked. Ken went for extra mileage, I ran back around W side rather than finish over top. A minor ache on the L thigh (mt tom injury) just before end so backed off a little.
