Orienteering race 1:26:00 [4] 9.7 km (8:52 / km)

QOC Patuxent Blue - first orienteering after breaking wrist at Great Falls. Managed not to fall on it again - splint might have protected it adequately but better not to find out. No compass - having one would have saved me from my one bit not-actually-parallel error. That aside, after no running from Nov 25 through Jan 1, could hardly expect to be much faster than I was. Definitely was feeling unable to push as hard as I did at Great Falls, though spending so much time Saturday on my feet at Fountainhead can probably take some of the credit for that.

It was actually quite a nice day from 2 inches AGL to the top of the atmosphere. Just messy below that with the wet remnant of the week's snow. I feel for anyone running orange or advanced courses who didn't have at least aggressive cleats, if not studs as well.

Hiking 4:13:00 [1]

Giving myself credit for 2/3 of the time I spent at Fountainhead getting a start on field checking. It's quite liberating doing this on terrain with a preexisting O map so you know going in that you're really only looking for new rootstocks and manmade features plus changes in the vegetation and don't need to cover the ground thoroughly enough to spot pits and cup depressions - you can cover a lot more ground even in high visibility woods when you're only looking for things that stick up above ground level.

Running 28:00 [2]

Big day tomorrow and a deer cull in Rock Creek Park set to start at 10pm so I went short, out and back in a U shape each way along the sides of the valley our dining room window overlooks.

Deep Water Running 1:01:30 [3]

DWR at the William Rumsey Aquatic Center for the first time. Fairly nice. Might have been busier if it hadn't been snowing but I won't mind at all if my now most convenient to work pool is usually like it was this evening.

Running 1:07:10 [3]

From home, west into Rock Creek Park, north on the Western Ridge to the visitor center then back south on the west side of the creek before turning for home again.

Also joined Dan on a jog during the afternoon but won't log that as I was walking (vigorously but still walking).
