Orienteering race 1:11:32 [5] *** 6.56 km (10:54 / km) +295m 8:54 / km
spiked:15/16c shoes: VJ Falcons

Red course at Georgia Navigator cup. A pretty clean run with 2- 3 minurtes of errors. Lots of climb - I measured about 400m on the route I actually took, about 30 of which I probably could have avoided with better execution. Temperature about 40F, but at least there was no snow.

Orienteering race 20:24 [5] *** 2.3 km (8:52 / km)
spiked:10/12c shoes: VJ Falcons

Sprint at GNC. Mostly in the woods with some road/trail options. Tired from running earlier but still had a decent run. Missed a little bit on 2 controls for maybe 30 sec of errors. Lost a few more seconds getting hung up in vegetation a couple of times (mostly vines, usually thorny). Temps in the low 40's.

Treadmill 30:00 [3] 3.15 mi (9:31 / mi)
shoes: NB 878 - #6

At the hotel in Parkersburg WV, where I've gotten to stay an extra day thanks to cancelled flights due to a major snowstorm. Trying to get back today so I have time to pack and head out to the GA Navigator Cup tomorrow. To travel about 600 miles today I get to go up and down three times - here's one where driving just might be more eco-friendly than flying. And when I get back, I get to dig my car out from 1.5 feet of snow at the airport. :-((

The workout was extra special - not only was it on a treadmill, but it was an early morning run - two of my least favorite things to do to exercise. But I needed to exercise to deal with the stress and uncertainty of multiple rebooking of travel plans. It better be warm (relatively) in GA.

Trail Run 1:20:30 [3] 8.4 mi (9:35 / mi)
shoes: NB 809

Albany Pine Bush from Madison Avenue extension entrance. Ran all of the "official" trails plus some of the "prohibited" ones. :-) About half of trails snow covered but well packed. Upper 20's (maybe even 30) and mostly sunny.
One area (about 30 acres?) has been cleared of underbrush down to the dirt (sand actually) in a habitat restoration effort - strange to run from woods into what could be a scene from Lawrence of Arabia and then back into the woods. It will be interesting to watch the revegetation process (a few trees were left, presumably to provide seeds).
Stumbled across some mountain bike "terrain features" while off the sanctioned trails. A series of bumps (read pits and dot knolls with a trail across them) followed by a ramp consisting of about 3 feet of dirt and another 3 feet of pallet supported by two logs to give about a 6 foot drop down onto a wooded hill. These guys must be crazy - and probably nominees for a Darwin award.
