Running 10:00 [1]

Warmup and jog to start at Al Smith Memorial.

Orienteering 1:11:24 [4] 10.33 km (6:55 / km) +400m 5:47 / km

Blue course - respectable though by no means error-free run, climb number is dubious - haven't measured climb on my route but Syd Reader said, IIRC, that he'd measured his as 280m (perhaps there was some confusion caused by liberal use of formlines).

Cycling 1:09:00 [3] 14.0 mi (4:56 / mi)

Commute - dropped in on cycling shop and learned that the shift lever brake lever assembly wasn't fixable and needed to be replaced. Slight sticker shock but at least I'm back on the road without further ado. Feels like the three speed period has done my left knee no good but everything is still functional. I just hope I don't have to interrupt training during the competitive season to make it feel normal again.

Cycling 1:16:00 [3] 15.0 mi (5:04 / mi)

Commute. Very vexatiously, my rear derailleur decided a hundred meters into the trip home to stop downshifting, leaving me stranded at the small end of the freewheel. At least the triple chainring up front made it less than disastrous but it does make me nostalgic for the good old days when I understood precisely how shift levers worked.

Orienteering 1:12:50 [4] 8.52 km (8:33 / km) +315m 7:13 / km

Blue course at Westmoreland State Park. Last fall's hurricane left considerable deadfall in unpredictable locations and reportedly made a considerable area Mike Brooks wanted to use virtually impassible. Of course, relying on the 1975 vegetation mapping isn't always a good bet even without a recent hurricane to mix it up. Didn't feel as though I quite had top speed available but it was a fairly clean run, aided by some luck in a vague area where I couldn't see the decaying fence I'd planned on following in and resorted to trying to discern the difference between what was white and what was light green in 1975 - it's hard to get seriously lost when the contour features are as dramatic as they are at Westmoreland.
