8 AM

Hiking warm up/down (walk to start) 22:53 [2] 1.48 km (15:27 / km) +121m 10:58 / km
slept:6.5 shoes: Jala Jukola Spider 6 #2

Walk to start of the middle course at Bull Pond, West Point, up a steepish windy trail to a road near the pond. Glasses got steamy near the top of the climb so I didn't have high hopes for them being effective during the race. Fortunately, Brown used 1:7500 maps. :-D

Orienteering race 57:03 [0] *** 3.3 km (17:17 / km) +115m 14:43 / km
spiked:11/13c shoes: Jala Jukola Spider 6 #2

FR = 3.96 km, 153m climb, but I'm not sure where all that climb comes from

--Brown Middle F55 at Bull Pond. Start was at a road junction and the start triangle was in the woods 60-70m away, and then #1 wasn't too far beyond that. I bobbled a bit in the circle because I was still getting into the mapping, but wasn't too far off. Two was a longer leg and I was high going over the hill and had to correct (had intended to contour south but veg was a little thicker than depicted). Slow and steady to the rest.

Nice running weather, though still a bit humid (such that I couldn't use my glasses much)
1 PM

Orienteering race (sprint) 27:42 [4] *** 2.72 km (10:11 / km) +61m 9:10 / km
spiked:17/18c shoes: Trail NB 706 9D # 2

FR 2.72 km, 61m climb

--Red Sprint at Camp Natural Bridge around barracks and up to the obstacle course area E of camp. Got on the wrong path between 4 and 5 and ended up high to the ENE and cut back. Glen caught me on the way to 7 and Ali on the way to 11. Still I'm pretty happy with my time as I don't run in their league. :-)
Then played AP bingo after and won little Hershey miniature candies. Talked a bit to "pi" who I hadn't spoken to before though I'd seen him in British Columbia around the NAOCs.

Saving my legs for West Point. :-)

10 AM

Pilates class 55:00 [1]

Added light weights to some of the moves.
11 AM

Fitness equipment (elliptical) 45:00 [3]
shoes: Sauc.Shad.6000#7-2012H

2.11mi -- Feet less sensitive today so was able to complete the whole 45 minutes planned. TVs were off so possibly a cable problem?--less distraction. (Staff were turning them on as I was leaving.) Finished a WWDTM from a few weeks ago (just after super Tuesday, whenever that was), and started a Freakonomics segment from March. Leg presses, pulldowns (12!), adductors.

Exerc. Class 55:00 [1]

Lots of stepping and upper body strengthening. Nice workout.

Tuesday May 1, 2012 #


Where I went yesterday (track starts at the 4-way trail jct). I jogged some on the trail between 11 and 5L, but not much otherwise as I was loaded down a bit more than I would have been during the Billygoat.

Had trouble, again (as during vetting), with the downed trees in the big reentrant leading up to 6.

10 AM

Pilates class 55:00 [1]

Good class using bands. The band I purchased at Target broke (about 4" off the end). It was already too short. Not recommended. Legs tired after so only did pulldowns and adductors.

Exerc. Class 50:00 [1]

I actually felt energetic for this class; more "rest" days, maybe, though close to 8 hours on my feet yesterday is a bit out of my ordinary practice.

Tooth crown installed; now preparing for one more trek up to Moreau to retrieve the western controls (5L-11), since it's going to be such a nice day.
3 PM

Hiking (uphill) 26:59 [3] 1.6 km (16:52 / km)
shoes: Trail NB 706 9D # 2

At Moreau. I took the trail up to the A-meet day 1 start (G/R/B) to get a start on picking up controls from the western portion of the Billygoat.

Orienteering (control pickup) 1:53:33 [2] **** 5.12 km (22:11 / km)
spiked:7/7c shoes: Trail NB 706 9D # 2

Getting from four-way trail junction around to 7 controls and back. Headed out to 9-10-11 first to get the most climb done earlier, then over to 5L-6-7-8. Time includes stops at a few of the controls to untie flag, pull out stake, etc; at others I stopped my watch and then restarted. Usually this was when I took off my pack for longer than typical, or to take a few pictures. :-)

Stopped the watch at the water control. Took 15-20 minutes to pick up the cups and gel packets (and their tops), and to empty 5 of the gallon jugs that weren't used (better too much than too little water there, but I certainly wasn't going to haul any down the hill). Special thanks to the few people who actually put their trash into the bags. ;-)
6 PM

Hiking (downhill) 22:28 [2] 1.67 km (13:27 / km)
shoes: Trail NB 706 9D # 2

Back to the car. Same route as on the way up so not sure why 70m longer. :-)
