Orienteering race 25:07 [5]

Sprint at Lehigh University. OGBr course. This was a lot of fun! I opted to take the approach of using the bigger features (e.g., buildings) vs. trying to finesse my way using smaller features (e.g., stairwells in courtyards) because it would take longer for me (and my poor eyesight) to distinguish those rather than just running around buildings. This worked fairly well; I just got messed up in the very beginning when I dropped too low on the way to #2, and was on the wrong road. But, it wasn't too fatal.

I keep telling myself that I'm really not a sprinter, and so I shouldn't enjoy these types of events, but I'm finding more and more that I love these campus sprints. They are like little puzzles that you have to solve running at your top speed. Yes, I love them.

Mt. Biking 1:07:00 intensity: (37:00 @2) + (30:00 @3)

I finally was able to quit work a little early to actually make it up to Laramie Range for a wonderful bike ride. The weather was so beautiful today. Just a perfect day.
