orienteering race 37:29 [4] 3.6 km (10:25 / km) +75m 9:26 / km

Short Course at the Team Trials. An interesting race: an excellent result (2nd on green overall), running felt strong and easy and I only walked in a couple of places where it was thick, but I couldn't hold a bearing and was always correcting. Luckily I was reading the map well, my pace-counting was on target, and except for #4 always knew which way to turn if the control wasn't where I expected it. But it sure made for a nervous feeling race!

warm up/cool down 15:00 [1]

A decent warm-up; felt good.

orienteering race 24:26 [4]

Sprint race at the team trials. Pleasantly surprised by the result since I didn't feel particularly good running. But I was able to read the map well and had very few hesitations so I guess that paid off. Was able to run most of the course.

warm up/cool down 10:00 [1]

Jogging around the campus trying to loosen up.

Running errands on the other side of the Wissahickon so took my bike through the park - some trails, mostly roads, many hills.

running 1:05:10 [3]

TNT - nice crowd. Normal 5 miles on the drive in about 47; started with Anne and Bob but couldn't stay with them after about 2miles. Dasha was kind and stayed with me.

orienteering race 1:08:57 [3] *** 5.2 km (13:16 / km)

Iron Hill green course. Messed up 3 & 4 losing many minutes; relatively clean to everything else. The woods were thick but easy to move through in places - as in no prickers and thorns to grab you, just stuff everywhere. Enjoyed myself which I didn't expect - the vegetation seemed much more benign than in the past.
