Orienteering (Foot) 1:34:51 [4] ***** 7.0 km (13:33 / km) +220m 11:43 / km
spiked:7/14c slept:10.0

Harriman State Park, NY. HVO Surebridge Challenge. Running Red again, I did not do as well as the day before. Day 2 was more technical. I was more tired before starting. I had set out to run harder which probably wasn't a good idea. I started making poor decisions at #2 and continued this through #4. I probably lost about 11 minutes alone on #4. #5 was fine for me but on #6, I mis-read it to be in a reentrant. I checked the length of one well past the cliff that it was on. Pavalina Brautigam. helped out there. She, Tom Overbaugh and I set off on a chase toward #7 which was fun. After some mis-direction, Pavalina got us on the trail route there. After #7, I pulled ahead in real time but not enough to salvage the day. I pulled-up early at #13 fortunate to have Yekaterina catch-up and get me on track again.

Event: HVO A-Meet

Running warm up/down (Street & Trail) 4:00 [2] 0.6 km (6:40 / km)
slept:5.5 weight:179lbs

Harriman State Park, NY. From Camp Ma-Kee-Ya, warm-up jog to the start of the A-meet. I ate a late dinner which would account for part of the weight.

Orienteering (Foot) 1:15:00 [4] **** 6.6 km (11:22 / km) +270m 9:26 / km

Harriman State Park, NY. HVO Surebridge Challenge. Running Red, I felt I navigated pretty well. I took the high road to #5 to avoid what seemed like a lot of rock on the low route. I was a bit more off on #11; reaching the trail but not knowing exactly where, I got too high. I had fun racing Jim Rayburn to the finish after #11 except that I flubbed #15. I stopped early before crossing the flat area.

I ran slowly this race and though tired in the middle, I wasn't tired at the end. That shouldn't be. I suppose going slower prevented some errors. It was a fun race.

Running (Street & Trail) 14:21 [3] 2.0 mi (7:10 / mi)

After a flight back home in Bethesda, MD and after getting Max to bed, I did the Two Mile route at an easy pace. The weather was perfect and just about the first time in a week that it wasn't rather windy.

Running (Street & Trail) 39:34 [3] 5.2 mi (7:37 / mi)

St. Paul, MN. From Montrose La., Hartford Ave. to Mississippi River Blvd. to the Ford Bridge, looping around Minnehaha Falls, trails to the trail head/sign just south of 54th St. East, then back to Montrose La., via the stairs and dirt trails in the Minnehaha Falls gorge. It was in the 60's F with a strong wind coming from the south. I was tempted to go on at the turnaround point but it was wiser not to. I've been looking for a way to connect a run on both sides of the river with the turnaround at Fort Snelling. I think it's achievable but I was too tired and with limited time. Perhaps another day whenever we return on better circumstances.

Calisthenics (General) 2:00 [3]
slept:4.5 weight:176.5lbs

45 situps after the flight to Minneapolis/St. Paul, MN. I was tempted by the nice weather and guilt about not working out much, to go out for a run but by the time I got Max to sleep, I was too pooped.

Tuesday Apr 17, 2007 #

Bicycling (Trainer) 30:00 [3]
slept:5.5 weight:177.5lbs

30 minutes on the trainer at home. Due to it being a travel day, I probably won't get much of a workout in on Wednesday.

Monday Apr 16, 2007 #

Calisthenics (General) 2:00 [3]

The day got away from me with working late and family matters. 45 situps. I've been eating much too much of Peggy's birthday cake.
