Run (trails) 31:00 [2] 3.3 km (9:24 / km) +175m 7:26 / km
shoes: Gray Nike XCR

Trail run on Mt Rowe. Gunstock trails were mostly washed out and/or glare ice, except for the few GNA groomed for their race this morning. Took a wuss pill last night, so didn't go over to race.

Wish I had left my studded O shoes in the car from yesterday. In the shade it was very hard and slick. it did soften up where the sun had been hitting it for a while. Went down on my ass a couple of times. On downhills, tried hitting with a straight leg right onto my heel to bust into the crust a bit. Worked for the most part, except once. I went right on my butt and started sliding down the trail. lifted one cheek to avoid a potentially disastrous encouter with a protruding chunk of ice... Worked my way over to the side of the trail and got into the stuff that the snocat hadn't touched - was able to drive my heels into that and stop.

Snowshoes, with the claws, would have been a good thing.
There's going to be a snowshoe race at GUnstock on the 26th - 5k, including an up and over Cobble Mtn.

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.
