Orienteering (mapping) 4:13:45 [1] 5.4 mi (47:00 / mi) +220m 41:43 / mi

Another nicer day so another day mapping. Today was a work day so I didn't have to get up as early in order to get parking. I was actually able to park in the small lot instead of along the road today. I had picked another area to map. Just like yesterday I picked a route out that I mapped as I went so it took me awhile to get to the area again. There was more green/vegetation mapping which is never fun. Who likes wading through green areas and decided what is what color green and where the boundaries are.
Today's animal count. One turtle and lots of squirrel. I thought I might see some snakes sunning themselves but didn't. I didn't see my one deer.
I could have mapped longer but I wanted to get back to the car and go for a run. it took me over a mile to get back to the car from where I stopped mapping.
2 PM

Run (trail) 1:11:48 [3] 6.19 mi (11:36 / mi) +204m 10:31 / mi

I had run since I hurt my back so I wanted to get some cardio in with a run. I figured a 3-4 mile run on the trails would be nice. I figured I would do the loops around the plateaus and figured it would be about 4 miles. I grossly misjudged how wind-y the trails area. I got part way in and realized it was going to be much longer. I could have cut the run short but wanted to see how long it was in case I wanted to do the run some other day. I was carrying my map and i did stop a few time to look at it to make sure I was still on the correct trail. Since the trails never went straight it was hard to figure out what trail I was one.
I was doing fine initially. About 4 miles in I started getting concerned about my hamstrings. I didn't want to get a cramp so as I started getting more tired I started walking the steeper hills. Then I started walking the less steep hills. I did finish jogging but it was pretty slow. Definitely further than I was ready for after already spending 5 hours mapping.
Except for the distance, the run was nice. The trail was constantly turning so there was always things to see. It was entirely in the shade. It was steep in a few places.
