1 PM

Run (road) 39:22 [3] 4.73 mi (8:19 / mi)
shoes: Addidas Ultraboost 20 2020

Was going to run on the treadmill but it was sunny outside (even though cold). So I bundled up and ran outside. Had a nice run.
Ran up by the school. I was surprised there were people out walking. I still had to avoid people during my run. I guess everyone was getting a last minute walk in before the snow storm.

Orienteering (wheaton blue) 1:16:37 [3] *** 8.3 km (9:14 / km)
ahr:144 max:164 spiked:12/17c slept:8.0 weight:173lbs shoes: VJ Falcons 2019

A bit cool out but sunny. Once I got going it was nice out. The biggest problem was there were too many people in the park. I spent approximately one third of the course with my mask on. This is a urban park with lots of local hikers. Add all the orienteers and it was just to crowded. Some of the trails are narrow so there isn't room to pass people and maintain the 6 foot distance. I spent more time running in the woods simple to avoid people on the trails. I had to slow down numerous times to wait to pass people. I had to stop just short of the finish when a young person was intent on beating me in to point the violated my 6 foot area. I had to wait for them to punch, then walk away.
With my mask on, I couldn't breath while running and my glassed kept fogging up. I took my glass off only to drop them from my hand when my hand got caught on some tree branches.
A few new unmapped trails which benefited some people. Generally did ok but was sloppy in a few cases. I am going to chalk it up to not being able to see details on the map because of my glasses. I misread one area late in the course and had to run back around a fenced area.
I wasn't very fast. Just haven't been getting the training in.
GPS track doesn't seem to match up with where I was, or else the map isn't correct.
I also twisted my right ankle a few times on the course. After a bit of hobbling it was ok to run on.
3 PM

Orienteering (checking greenbelt area) 1:48:41 [2] 3.83 mi (28:23 / mi)
shoes: VJ Falcons 2019

After Wheaton, I decided to go check out the Greenbelt area on the other side of the parkway. By now I was tired, my ankle was bothering me, and I had a thorn in my foot.
Parked at Parkdale high school and crossed the parkway on the goodluck road bridge.
There are some nice areas but much of it is some color of green. The culvert under 295 did look plenty big enough to run under but will get feet wet. There is one access road to the water/sewer line. I didn't make it to the northern part of the new area as it was getting late and was taking a long time to walk through the greener areas. I finally cut back to the road and walked it out. There were lots of features to hang controls including: contour features, streams, ditches, dot knolls, root stocks, and green.
