Running 13:29 intensity: (3 @0) + (7:16 @1) + (5:31 @2) + (39 @3) 1.1 mi (12:16 / mi) +44m 10:54 / mi
ahr:152 max:176 shoes: Humberto & Georgette (O-Roc 28

Warm up before the sprint. My tummy was still too full of lunch.

I wasn't in the right mindset before starting today. I also had a not very ideal 24 hours prior - at work until after midnight, up at 5 to fly to CA, drive up to Cobb, etc.

Orienteering 25:40 intensity: (1 @0) + (21 @1) + (1:59 @2) + (11:42 @3) + (11:37 @4) **** 2.75 km (9:20 / km) +98m 7:55 / km
ahr:180 max:188 14c shoes: Humberto & Georgette (O-Roc 28

Boggs Sprint. 2.4km.

There wasn't really anything good about this run, though it seems most other people had a rough time of it, too. Of course, I shouldn't have had a rough time of it so that's not too much of a consolation.

Running warm up/down 1:56 intensity: (1:00 @1) + (56 @2) 0.15 mi (12:55 / mi)
ahr:144 max:145 shoes: Humberto & Georgette (O-Roc 28

My feeble attempt at cooling down. Too DPC-like to bother.

Morningjog. I felt like dog poo cookies.

(rest day)

What's with all the online registrations that requires you to print a waiver and mail it in? Can't we do that online like practically every other race on the planet? And what about the ones where you have to mail in a check? A paper check? Really? Is this not the year 2010? It certainly can't be easier for the registrar to handle all that mail, so why do it that way?

Anyway, that is my pet peeve of the month, having registered for what seems like three gazillion events, each with its own requirements for payment and waiver. Why do orienteers make things more difficult?

Running (road/trail) 36:54 intensity: (3 @0) + (4:35 @1) + (31:41 @2) + (26 @3) + (9 @4) 4.05 mi (9:07 / mi) +13m 9:01 / mi
ahr:157 max:183 shoes: Little Piggies

This morning I was up well before sunrise and I waited until it got light before I left for a run. That seemed like a perfectly natural thing to do, but I have no idea why I did it. I run in the dark all the time, in the evening, so why would running in the dark in the morning be any different? I also wouldn't have had the sun in my eyes on the way home, and that would have been nice.

Anyway, easy loop around the golf course. Upper 70s. The FFs feel pretty good with socks (again). Not sure I would ever orienteer in them like my crazy sister, though. Legs a little sore from the weekend, but the bashed in knee from the convergence with the tram tracks hurts more. Did 4x 15 sec pickups at the end.

Running (trail) 2:22:02 intensity: (16 @0) + (4:35 @1) + (2:13:22 @2) + (3:49 @3) 9.91 mi (14:20 / mi) +686m 11:48 / mi
ahr:161 max:177 shoes: Assumpta (inov8 X-Talon 212)

TTR run up Bug Springs. I chose the short option today, turning around at the top of Bug Springs and not continuing up the Green Mtn trail. Warmer than expected, already mid-70s at the start (~4800') but a good breeze made it pretty pleasant.

No go juice today, but hey, it's an "easy" long run, so it's okay if I'm slow. A very nice trail, just too steep too often to make the ascent that enjoyable. For me, right now.

Too brain frazzled to write any further description - this weekend is ridiculous.

Running warm up/down (road/trail) 14:35 intensity: (1 @0) + (9 @1) + (14:20 @2) + (5 @3) 1.41 mi (10:21 / mi) +37m 9:34 / mi
ahr:160 max:175 shoes: Leo (F-Lite 230)

Warm up, along the road to the top of the first hill on the course, back on the nature trail.

Ate a few bites of banana at home before I left. Just right.

Running race (road) 34:30 intensity: (2 @0) + (20 @1) + (1:34 @2) + (5:40 @3) + (26:54 @4) 4.51 mi (7:39 / mi) +130m 7:01 / mi

Sabino Canyon Classic 4.5 miler

A new race for Tucson, on the roads of the Sabino Canyon area. The course avoids the major climb of going up Sabino Canyon itself, instead sticking to the road that goes from Sabino to Bear Canyon. It's got a nice set of hills and, because of the sink hole in the bridge over Sabino Creek, a wee bit of a wash crossing. And an extra .5 miles over the original distance.

Started strong, holding back as we set off up the subtle initial climb, letting people pass. By the top of the first hill (just over .5 mi) I was 4th woman, and the steep descent afterwards allowed me to elbow into 2nd. It wouldn't last, since I think with each hill after that I was able to push less, until I just couldn't catch back up on the downhills. Steve H. and I fought each other the whole way, he'd pass me on the ups, I'd pass him on the downs, but he didn't get ahead on the very last climb and I just managed to edge him out by a few seconds. Also managed to finish 6th woman and second in my age group.

HR doesn't seem to have climbed anywhere near where I would have expected it. Maybe I need to be fully rested for more HR action.

I had no idea what to expect for this race. That XC 5k two weeks ago really shocked me, but either that was just a really bad day or I have made significant progress since then. Maybe a bit of both. Either way I like it.

Running warm up/down (trail) 9:42 intensity: (2 @0) + (55 @1) + (8:45 @2) 0.85 mi (11:25 / mi) +2m 11:20 / mi
ahr:156 max:167 shoes: Leo (F-Lite 230)

Warm down on the big trail while the line for breakfast got long.
