Orienteering race 37:07 [4] 3.8 km (9:46 / km)
shoes: Falcon spikes 2007

Orange Course at Urban Forestry Center. Fairly warm, but still a lots of frozen left on the ground. Trails varied between open, mud, hard packed snow, unpacked snow, hard ice...
Glad I had on studded O shoes.
Some bobbles, but a good workout.

Orienteering warm up/down 30:00 [2] 3.0 km (10:00 / km)
shoes: Falcon spikes 2007

Limited warm up, then ran a replacement control out to where one seemed to be missing, only to find the original control slightly mis-hung.

Control pickup after the UNO meeting.

Run (pavement) 28:10 [3] 4.8 km (5:52 / km) +85m 5:23 / km
shoes: Brooks

Evening run - wanted to ski, but with the temps at over 45F, would have been very wet and slow.

Felt OK - we'll see how my knees do the next couple of days.

Was a bit overdressed, there were some pockets of cold air, but some area felt like I was running in a sauna. Lots of sun out today, beating ont he pavement, and it was slowly releasing it as I came by.

Ran by the polls on the way back - still some valiant sign holders out by the road for Clinton and Ron Paul. We'll see how the whole kerfluffle ends up - back to the normal mindless adds.

XC Ski (skating) 1:10:00 [3] 13.5 km (5:11 / km) +275m 4:42 / km
shoes: '02 Peltonen Skate Skis

Rapidly warming conditions, although the trails were in great shape considering. Did the Cobble Mtn loop clockwise, then my verison of the race trails where you hit almost all of them - take 2 across the top halfway, down 4 looping around back to 2, u turn onto 6 back to the stadium, hard right onto T, then R, up the Chute a little bit, then S back to the stadium. About 6.2 km. Just the Cobble loop is about 3.6 km (with none of the side loops).

Did a few passes back and forth in the stadium with no poles - technique seems to be OK.

Reversed Cobble, then took 9 up and over to the meadow, up 7 and back along 8. It was warming up considerably - could feel the suction under my skiis. Continued the reverse on Cobble and in.

Thermometer at the XC center said 40...
