Orienteering race 1:35:37 [4] 4.2 km (22:46 / km)
shoes: Salomon Speedcross 3

West Point Green Y - much farther distance due to terrible navigation, but GPS watch is not working (bummer!)

What can I say except I made it out of there alive! :) Lost over 35 minutes on mistakes, it's a new record!

1- lost pace count and wasn't sure how far i'd gone, no confidence, 25 minutes on first control!! very bad.
2-7 all good
8- a doozy. obviously the lack of sleep got me, i punched 7 and then tried to go to 7 again from 7, but with the clue of 8 in my brain. where is the spur? got back to 7, relocated, and then got lost again. twisted my ankle and fell down hard.
9-F all good

There is so much going on on this map, so many cliffs and boulders and little things that are hard to see if you're not scrutinizing it will provide me many evenings of armchair orienteering!

Did not do Sprint b/c of ankle.

Nice fish tacos dinner with Tom O, Petr H, and Robert Hesketh.

Very beautiful area and weather, and I'm looking forward to tomorrow!

Work is just exploding! Wish I could have gotten some exercise today, but I can't feel too bad, I was on my feet all day. Tomorrow is another crazy day at work with a lot of designs to make. I'm sure I'll be glad to get to my bed tomorrow night!

Run 42:11 [4] 4.5 mi (9:22 / mi)
shoes: nike lunarglide +3 minty

Tried something new, intervals.

Started with 2 minutes warmup jog.

10 paces fast run, 10 paces slow jog, 20f, 20s, 30f, 30s, 40f, 40s, 50f, 50s, 40f, 40s, 30f, 30s, 20f, 20s, 10f, 10s. 1 minute normal jog. Repeat for a total of 3 cycles with a minute slow jog in between each and a minute or two of normal jog at the end.

Sadly my GPS function was not working, and I am super bummed b/c I wanted to see how fast I was going when I was going fast, etc. Did the mileage using google maps.

This kept my mind occupied, and I felt strong doing it. The resulting pace is better than I thought it would be!! I will definitely do this again!

(Note: for pacing, I count every other left footfall.)

Orienteering 1:16:35 [4] 4.9 km (15:38 / km)
weight:114.8lbs shoes: Salomon Speedcross 3

Did well on all the hard controls in the woods, and screwed up the easy ones in the meadows. I was just thinking, ok, it's easy from here on out, and turned my brain off. #10, wrong ruin, #11, next field over, #12, which way is up. If anyone has suggestions for how to exercise my brain, I'm listening!

Today's flubs made me question whether I should go to West Point next week. I just don't want to do so terribly that it gets me down, which is a possibility given these recent local results. I think I need to reset my expectations to be a little more realistic, and give myself a break as I try to balance a new work situation and some stuff going on at home. But it's hard, because I am a MacMullan!

Go ahead Dad, you have my permission to rub it in a little. Old man with a kidney stone beat me today.

Yoga 25:00 [2]

Light stretching and meditation.
