Running 33:56 [2] 4.11 mi (8:15 / mi)

Easy run during Z's soccer practice at Schlegel - ran over to Kent Park and did a loop, including exploring the woods north of all of the trails, and back for a loop around the school.

Orienteering race 1:01:36 [4] *** 7.9 km (7:48 / km)
spiked:12/14c slept:8.0

ROC Meet at Mendon Ponds Park - Red Course.

It looks like I eeked out a 16 second win over Rob. I was running very hard and didn't make many mistakes, so I'm looking forward to seeing the splits and finding out where he made up time - there was a lot of trail running, so I thought I could pick up a fair amount of time, since I tend to have an advantage on trails.

I went way left to C1 to avoid some climbing and thinking. 2-5 were pretty straightforward - more Y/O than advanced. I went right to C6, attacking from the small building in the field. I aimed just a bit left for C7, using the second trail to lead me in. C8 had an indistinct trail leading almost right to the bag. C9 was fun. I angled out to the driveway to the trail. When the trail started way right, I went straight and joined back up with it and cut in when the woods got white.

C10 was a problem, not in navigating, but in choosing the worst time to catch my foot on a log and fall forward - it was just as I was crossing the swamp and my right arm went in up to the elbow. Guess that SID rental is going to need a washing. Took a few seconds to clean my map and compass and cut to the left side of the pines, which basically led to a control (although it was blocked from my side by a nasty downed tree).

I almost panicked when I hit the rough open field near C11, because the vegetation did not match the map. Luckily the control feature was the only clump of pines, so that was a big relief when I realized that. I angled right of the line leaving C11 and hit the trail before I hit the swamp. I lost some time leaving the road - almost tried to go too far, but came back quickly. Probably the highlight of the day was seeing a control up at the top of a reentrant and being very tempted to go there, but knowing that I hadn't gone far enough, and that C12 was closer to the swamp, I resisted the temptation to check it out.

I made two mistakes on the next leg. I left C12 way too far left, and had to recover. Then I didn't see the trail that was the left fork in the woods leading to the field and ran around to the right. From the field there was a convenient swath of grass that was on line to the control, and I could see the flag from 150m. C14 was not good. I lost contact with the map after going near C4, and just used the compass to head in the right direction, sometimes on trails, sometimes off.

I hadn't started my watch at the beginning, so I wasn't sure of the precise time, but I knew it was close, so I gave everything I had running up to the finish control. Good thing, as it turns out.

Running warm up/down 9:00 [2] 1.0 mi (9:00 / mi)

Orienteering (Control Pickup) 41:04 [2] 4.11 mi (10:00 / mi)

Picked up 11 controls and tried for 5 others, but they were gone.

Golfing 18:00 [1]
(rest day)

Finally got out for 18 holes. Had a first ever in golf today, but it was not a good first. After 3-putting for bogeys on 8 and 9, I resolved not to continue that trend, and on 10, I didn't, I 3-putted for par instead. First time I've ever done that. I had a beautiful drive and hit a 4-wood from 220 yards, 16 feet past the hole (had to have been very close to the pin). I almost sank the eagle putt, but then it rolled 4 feet past and I missed the birdie putt as well. OUCH!

I wound up with an agonizing 44 putts on my way to a 96. It's a shame to score so poorly when I was hitting the ball so well for early in the year.

Running 45:00 intensity: (40:00 @2) + (5:00 @4) 5.81 mi (7:45 / mi)

Running around during the Marion Invitational. Most of this was a 30 minute run - I went out 16 minutes and did 5 x 1 min quick steps on the way back, working up from 160 steps on the first to 179 on the last (I was doing 150 while slogging along).

The extra 15 minutes is a very conservative estimate of the various running around for a variety of reasons - mainly the fact that coaches were not allowed on the infield for this meet.

Swimming 38:19 [3] 1.02 mi (37:33 / mi)
rhr:44 slept:4.75


Just plodded thru today.

Hashing 1:03:00 [2] 6.3 mi (10:00 / mi)

Fetch set a nice trail out in Egypt that kept me moving pretty continuously. We were out for over 90 minutes.

Running 35:00 [3] 4.52 mi (7:45 / mi)

Did some running off and on during today's track practice. About half the time was a steady run while the kids were doing a warm down, the rest was whatever I could fit in while keeping the kids honest with a stopwatch. We didn't have much time to practice before Thomas's meet started, so they did a 10 min Tempo, followed by 4 x 400m. Nico almost made 7 laps, Nate was 6+5/8.

Running 43:18 [3] 5.84 mi (7:25 / mi)
slept:6.5 weight:163.5lbs

Ran along the river (counter-clockwise for a change) with Scott, crossing back over at the UR ped bridge. Picked it up gradually, until we were right on 7:00 for the measured mile, then about 7:15 for the next mile (that I didn't really notice until today was measured for some race).

Legs were still heavy from the weekend when I was walking to the Y, but they felt better in the middle of the run, then it go tough near the end (the tired legs being the limiting factor).

Golfing 10:00 [1]

Snuck off for 30 minutes of range time after watching the start of Luke's first T-Ball game. It didn't move TOO slowly, but mid-year when they start using the pitching machine, things will drag out.
