Orienteering race 1:25:01 [4] *** 8.2 km (10:22 / km) +350m 8:33 / km

Red course at Fair Hill A-meet. I am not unhappy with this race. I'm frustrated with a stupid mistake at #21. The description for this was "bend in trail," and I was ridiculing this on the way to the control, thinking that a bend in trail control was *not* a Red control. And then I proceeded to totally blow it...argh! Other than that, I made a few seconds of mistakes at other controls, but nothing too bad. I was pretty tired at the end, but still moving at a good pace for me, so that was good. Yes, all in all, not a bad outing.

Running 27:39 [3] 3.0 mi (9:13 / mi)

A quick run through the neighborhood. This brings me to my running goal for the month and is a good ending point before Fair Hill. It was a beautiful, cool morning and I felt good today. I wasn't feeling so spritely at Gettysburg, so this was a nice boost.

The DVD. Good way to start the day.

Running 1:00:00 [3]

I went up to Gettysburg to show some out-of-town friends around. Afterwards, my friend, Meg, and I did a lollipop loop out of the Visitor's Center, over Little and Big Round Top, down to Sickles Ave. and back over towards the Visitor's Center. On the way back, it was getting later than we thought, so we tried to take a shortcut across a former wheat field. Instead of feeling like Civil War soldiers, however, we felt like water buffalo as we slogged through swamp-like conditions in an area where we should not have been. Maybe we were channeling Francis Marion, instead. Definitely a Lucy move!

Cycling 50:00 [2]

My legs were still pretty tired from the weekend, so I did a relatively easy trainer session.

Orienteering race 1:35:52 [3] *** 9.5 km (10:05 / km) +270m 8:50 / km

QOC meet at Little Bennett Regional Park, Clarksburg, MD. I wasn't sure which course I wanted to run today, but when I found out Peggy was out on Blue, I figured I needed to run Blue, too. It was a good day. It started out a little rough because my stomach was acting up, and by the 4th control, I was in a bit of gastric distress. But the gods were looking out for me because on the way to #6, while coming out of the woods and into a field, I spied two port-a-potties, and one of them had my name on it! Yahoo!! After that, I felt much better and could concentrate on the course. The biggest trouble I had was on #9...I contoured around from #8, but stayed too high, didn't see the field and hit the stream on the far side of the ridge. I just circled to the NW, saw the field and found the cliff. Not too bad. I also missed the last control because I had shut down my concentration, thinking the race was just about over, and overshot the control by a bit. Rats! There was some significant climb towards the end of the course, and I could feel it in my legs after yesterday's run. All in all, though, I was pleased, and it was most excellent training for Fair Hill. Tanner and Graham had great runs, too!
