orienteering race 1:20:12 [4] ***
11c weight:162lbs shoes: Jalas hi-top O' shoes

ICO Bradford Woods meet. Fun terrain, but 3 controls were mis-placed and one had an incorrect code. I figure I lost 8:30 - 10:00 on those 3 controls. Otherwise, I ran fairly clean.

walking 2:00:00 [1] 6.0 mi (20:00 / mi)

Night trails. Beautiful moonlit night. mostly trail, flattish forest terrain and field edges, some roads. Mileage and time are low end estimates. Unfortunately, if there were owls around, they pretty much kept to themselves.

trail running 20:00 [3]

Trail and terrain at Hueston Woods campground permanent course with Sam and Hunter. Mostly short bursts. We were checking all permanent posts and replacing two that had been knocked over. For me, the highlight of the day was the hill sprint race from my van up the hill to number 15. The two juniors got the early lead, but I passed them midway up the hill. Sam stayed on my heels almost to the control, but I got 'em both! Chalk one up for the old, slow guy! Later, we did a short sprint to another control on fairly level forested terrain, and Hunter won that one with me taking second. On the downhills, though, Sam flew like a Peregrine Falcon and easily beat us all.

walking 20:00 [2] *

Hueston Woods - permanent course inspection and maintenance with Sam and Hunter. Carried a 40 pound pack up the hill (a sack of concrete mix), so this was good for some upper body work as well! Sam had his hands full with a 5 gallon bucket of hand tools, rebar sections and other accessories, while Hunter managed to get off lightly with a shovel and posthole digger.

trail building / maintenance 1:00:00 [2]

digging and similar, replacing two uprooted permanent course posts. Light rain and the holes filled up with water as fast as we dug them. Fun in the mud!
