Orienteering race (Forest Park Sprint 1) 23:04 [5] 3.05 km (7:34 / km) +100m 6:30 / km
shoes: Jalas Champion

decent run, warmth & humidity sapping strength on hills, third behind PG & JF.
race - no splits though - reset watch when going for 2nd

Orienteering race (Forest Park Sprint 2) 39:29 [3] 3.5 km (11:17 / km) +115m 9:41 / km
shoes: Jalas Champion

very brief rest, then out for 2nd. Didn't take time to prep - just tossed punch card & desc into map case. Left my brain behind at the start.....

Not focused, made errors on first 4 controls - bad routes (missed obvious L choice on 1), ran down lots of unmapped trails, too much avoidable climb, didn't read #4 as being halfway down hill etc - was probably close to 20 minutes before I got to 5...

Slowed way down, race now shot, still made some less extensive mistakes though.

Will go back in a week or so to run this course again, this time taking my brain with me.

Trail Run - Long / Easy long (Shenipsit) 2:18:00 [3] 20.0 km (6:54 / km) +200m 6:34 / km
shoes: Adidas Response Trail XI

Run from home to Soapstone, mostly on blue trail, but a few parallel diversions - finished up the dirt road. About 55 minutes... After about 15 minutes into return, slowed to a walk for a bit, realized just how nice a walk it was and the rest was an enjoyable walk with occassional slow jog - just not in the mood to keep running harder.

Trail Run - Long / Easy (Cross Farms) 34:07 [3] 6.0 km (5:41 / km)
ahr:140 rhr:45 slept:8.0 weight:170lbs shoes: Adidas Response Trail XI

Ran some random trails & fields at Cross Farms during the kids soccer practice. First 10 minutes or so with Hayden, then 20 minutes at a faster pace - HR is average for the two, was closer to 150 for the latter portion. Distance is a total WAG.

Trail Run - Long / Easy (Happy Feet) 30:00 [2]

finally - no rain - back outside for laps and trails - ran 2 400's at a fairly fast pace, rest easy. Legs felt quite leaden....

Trail Run - Long / Easy (Crandalls) 28:17 [3] 5.25 km (5:23 / km) +140m 4:45 / km

nice afternoon - not much zip and pace reflects it. But I got out the door..

Hiking (Sodom Road) 30:00 [1]

pm walk with boys around pond off Sodom road - some small path, some bushwack, a few wet stream fords. Lots of frogs, tadpoles and one large black snake ~42 inches or so.

Trail Run - Long / Easy race (Soapstone Sampler) 59:47 [1] 6.1 km (9:48 / km) +100m 9:03 / km
shoes: Adidas Response Trail XI

Race day - started with Jackson - age/gender handicap starts - Anna (9) & Hayden (5) had started a few minutes earlier. Kind of ran back and forth keeping tabs on all of them for a while. Hayden held the lead (of the Morse clan) for first couple miles, then Anna & Jackson passed just before sandpit which was last I saw of them - Hayden ran out of steam around 3 miles walking with only occassional jogging in the final mile. Lots of cheering in the finish chute though and quite happy to see we managed to break an hour for 4 miles - quite an accomplishment for a 5 year olds first trail race....


Oops, I just realized the time posted in the results includes the handicap adjustment. So actual running time was closer to 70 minutes. (I wasn't wearing a watch) Still pretty decent for a little guy... I'll correct it when Jerry posts the adjusted results.
