Road running 1:02:10 [3] 7.1 mi (8:45 / mi)
shoes: Adrenaline 16

What a difference a day makes. Couldn't lift my knees yesterday, but everything was fine today. A comfortable run on my favorite route, over the Beltway at Forest Glen, through the National Seminary, down to the creek, back under the beltway by the Mormon Temple, and up the long hill back into Kensington.

Road running 33:58 [3] 3.8 mi (8:56 / mi)
shoes: Adrenaline 16

Morning run, going to get up close to 90 today. I had decided to do a longer run, but as soon as I got out the door I knew it wasn't going to happen. Really tired legs. So keep it short and try again tomorrow.

Trail Running 49:38 [3] 5.2 mi (9:33 / mi)
shoes: Adrenaline 16

Greenbelt Park Perimeter Trail. I've been using the distance on the park's mile markers. Even with the 3 or so hills, I think I should have been going more than 9:30 per mile. I suppose I could try to read the mileage off our O-map of the park for comparison.

Road running 35:00 [3] 3.89 mi (9:00 / mi)
shoes: Adrenaline 16

Warm-up for 2-mile. A few min at race pace and 3 strides.

Road running race 14:40 [5] 2.0 mi (7:20 / mi)
shoes: Adrenaline 16

40th Anniversary Edition of the GSFC 2-mile "fun run." Yes, this race has been held twice a year continuously for 40 years. The first one I ran in was in 1982, I think. Today's time was well over what I figured it would be. My 2-mile split in the 5k a couple of weeks ago was 14:20, so I don't exactly understand how I could run 14:40 today. And yet it happened. One thing, it was over 80 and full sun today. We usually hold this race in mid-April, when the temperature at noon is usually in the 60s.

Orienteering race 1:41:07 [4] 7.4 km (13:40 / km) +380m 10:52 / km
shoes: Icebug olx 2nd

QOC Fountainhead Far West - Red. It rained the whole day. The course was physically difficult, with a lot of climb, and rain-saturated slopes. I did not go very fast, particularly at the beginning, and had no real motivation to push things, given the conditions. I left my glasses in the car (on purpose) and had to keep wiping off the magnifier, sometimes just pushing it out of the way. Still, solid navigation, with only one real mistake: going to #4 I somehow ran off the big ridge and had to spend some time figuring out where I was and how to get back up on it. Other time losses were due to looking for the control too early. That happened 3 times: on 4, 7, and 9. I think I just wasn't seeing the map clearly.

Map Walk 40:00 [3] 5.0 km (8:00 / km)
shoes: Icebug olx 2nd

To and from the remote start, in the rain. I started down the trail towards the start and then realized I had forgotten my e-punch. Kind of surprised there wasn't a clear and check at the remote start, because I know how easy it is to forget that. Also, there should have been water at the start. Maybe take about half of the water that was down at #114 and leave it at the start instead.

Edit: I hear there was a clear and check at the start, but it was off somewhere near a streamer. I also hear there was water nearby. Given that we only found the start because of some jackets hanging on trees, it seems unlikely that we would have explored for those other things.
