Clear blue sky this morning for the first time in weeks, and tomorrow it's supposed to return to torrential rains. So today automatically got promoted to track day. 4x1000m with 4-min rest (600m slow jog) in between. I was trying to be relaxed about it and not obsess over splits and times. No checking the watch until the interval was over. Maybe I relaxed too much on the 3rd one. But whatever, it all felt good and the pace was fine. Times for 1k:

Rain all day yesterday and threatening weather again this morning. Not very warm either. I put on a long-sleeve shirt in order to convince myself to get out the door.

Goddard perimeter road. I remembered to start my watch this time but forgot to stop it. In any event, I took it at an easy pace.

shoes: Icebug olx 2nd

QOC Combat Village Red. Fairly difficult navigation in subtle terrain, combined with unfortunate map printing, made for a tough run. The first control was described as a reentrant, and I spent some time looking in various likely reentrants before bailing back out to the road and taking a more careful approach. This time I followed the 1-contour ridge, figured out that the black x was a rootstock, and found the flag from there, on apparently flat ground.

After that I was a lot more careful (which meant slow) and avoided making any more big mistakes. I overran #6, must have gone right by it, because when I came back it was right where I thought it should be. Overran 8 too, and got into the complex reentrants to the north of it. No other problems but, as I said, kind of slow ticking off features.

A surprisingly fine afternoon, and a nice time meeting and yakking after the run.
