Monday Jan 14 #

slept:7.0 weight:116.7lbs

I feel asleep easily last night (from exhaustion), but I woke up around 4:30 am -- my feet and legs were painfully sore, and I couldn't find a comfortable position. Eventually fell back asleep.

I never made it to the rec center or out for a walk today...oh well.

10 AM

Orienteering race 1:49:09 [3] 6.52 mi (16:44 / mi) +224ft 16:13 / mi
slept:7.0 shoes: Salomon Speedcross (2017-Navy)

Another GPHXO two-hour Score-O, at Robbins Butte (pretty close to yesterday's maps).

Counter-clockwise again. The first several controls went so smoothly that I think I stopped concentrating. Huge errors at #40, #32, #23 (twice!), and #20. Still lots of fun, and another day of great weather (60s and sunny).

Also, a fantastic wet-desert smell after last night's rain.


3 PM

Run / Hike 1:15:45 [3] 4.07 mi (18:37 / mi) +1158ft 14:40 / mi
shoes: Salomon Speedcross (2017-Navy)

I had several hours to kill before my 8pm flight, so I had planned to hike up Piestewa Peak to kick of my "get better at hill climbing" goal.

But, as Ron had predicted, parking lots were overflowing and the trail was MOBBED with people. (I even saw a Hyatt shuttle circulating near the trailhead).

So I decided to do the "Piestewa Freedom Loop" circumference trail instead (which still had a good amount of climbing). I was SO GLAD I did that -- there were very few other people on most of the loop trail. The final portion of the loop trail was the same as the peak trail -- and it was crowded, eroded, etc. -- I wouldn't have enjoyed that.

11 AM

Orienteering race 1:30:44 [3] 6.05 mi (15:00 / mi) +242ft 14:27 / mi
slept:6.0 shoes: Salomon Speedcross (2017-Navy)

GPHXO two-hour Score-O at Buckeye Hills. Mostly very flat and open (I forgot my knee-socks and didn't get scratched at all -- had a few cactus pokes & scratches on my arms, though).

I went counter-clockwise, starting with #21 (in retrospect, maybe 10-11-12-21-13 would have been more efficient). I blew past #21 somehow, but otherwise just small errors on the rest of the course.

I had one big, tumbling wipeout when I tripped on a rock while running full-speed going slightly downhill -- scraped & cut my hand a bit.

Beautiful weather! (High 60s, blue sky.)


6 PM

Orienteering race 2:03:38 [3] 4.49 mi (27:32 / mi) +424ft 25:17 / mi
shoes: Salomon Speedcross (2017-Navy)

GPHXO two-hour night Score-O at Buckeye Hills.

I went counter-clockwise again. I was worried that my Mexican late lunch / early dinner and acid-y michelada might have been a really bad idea, but my stomach behaved.

I got a bit lost as I approached #25. Pulled up short and went up the wrong reentrant when looking for #31. Got lost again nearing #34.

When I got to #30, I realized I was running out of time, so I skipped #20 and #12 in order to make a beeline back to the start / finish. Unfortunately, this area of the map was VERY rocky -- so I couldn't move very fast and I ended up a few minutes over the time limit.

It rained for most of this event, but the air was warm enough that the rain wasn't unpleasant.


Friday Jan 11 #

Run / Hike 27:43 [3] 2.38 mi (11:39 / mi) +133ft 11:04 / mi
slept:7.0 weight:117.6lbs shoes: TNF Ultra Winter

An easy run before heading to the airport later this evening (GPHXO event -- three two-hour Score-Os).

It was snowing the whole time and the paths were slushy / snow-packed -- but not windy and not very cold (~36°F) -- pleasant.

Thursday Jan 10 #

Strength / Stretching 1:00:00 [3]
slept:8.0 weight:118lbs shoes: Brooks Adrenaline (2019)

Strength Training for Runners class.

Run / Hike 10:52 [3] 1.05 mi (10:21 / mi)
shoes: Brooks Adrenaline (2019)
