Trail Run - Long / Easy warm up/down (in / out of park) 15:00 [2] 1.0 km (15:00 / km)
shoes: Adidas Response Trail XI

parked outside the park & jogged in on trails

Orienteering race (FP2 - The Redemption) 24:41 [5] *** 3.5 km (7:03 / km) +115m 6:03 / km
ahr:153 max:168 spiked:12/13c shoes: Adidas Response Trail XI

cooler, but still humid, am re-run of Saturdays second sprint. Took my brain with me this time. No flags, so just touch & go, but ran it on 10k map (yellow+) for additional map reading exercise. Much improved time, only a few minor execution errors, still didn't feel as fast as I would have liked, physically slowing too much in last couple minutes - I guess my fitness just sucks...


A sprint update by Boris and I jump 210 places in the rankings to 32nd. Feeling much better now though if I hadn't blown FP#2 on Saturday I'd into the 20's.

Great opportunity this weekend at Harriman but looking unlikely I'll make it due to a number of family things this weekend. But more opportunities later in June... perhaps I'll take it easy at MTW and save it for Bethel...

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....
