Orienteering (Sort of) 1:30:00 [2] 7.0 km (12:51 / km)

I had high hopes for Gay City today as it is my home turf. Unfortunately, I lost my punch card after 3 and managed to get my second DNF of my career. I tried to pull a PG and I was sure that I had dropped it when I fell in the thick vegetation south of 4. I couldn't retrace my steps that well from 4 and did not find it. I only found out later that it was further back than I thought when Joe told me he found it and was actually carrying it and punching it for me, but then he lost it again anyway. After I failed to recover it I had decided to go finish despite the loss. However, I started to lose my motivation after 8. Then I changed my mind and decided to go in between the two marshes on the way to 9 even though I have been through there before and knew it was bad. I fought for a while and then decided there was no way through and backed out. That mapped trail should probably be taken off the map, it doesn't seem very feasible to me to go that way anymore. At this point, I lost all the rest of my motivation and just headed back to get my DNF. I have definitely gotten spoiled from electronic punching. Anyway, at least I could get out in the woods on such a perfect day before I have to go wear a stuffy suit now.

Orienteering 1:49:51 [2] 7.98 km (13:46 / km)

A bit wet out there today, yet always better than being stuck inside. I enjoyed navigating today as there were plenty of features in the terrain. I think I should head back to Earl's trails though and practice more on just contours and counting reentrants and so forth.

I just found an interesting audio on SciFri about ticks. I gleaned a couple of tidbits that were new to me. The medical community considers the evidence for chronic lyme disease to be very weak. Also there apparently is an effective treatment to clothing with permethrin that the military has been using to repel ticks from uniforms.

Running (Warm Up/Down) 20:00 [2] 2.25 km (8:53 / km)

Running (Tempo) 29:00 [4] 4.35 km (6:40 / km)
ahr:163 max:181

Nice and cool this morning. 6 x 4 min tempo with 1 min rest in between. My legs get real tired a little less than half way through and it feels like my pace suffers even if my heart rate stays high.

Running (Warm Up/Down) 20:00 [2] 2.25 km (8:53 / km)

Running (Tempo) 20:00 [4] 3.25 km (6:09 / km)
ahr:159 max:178

When I first started, the morning was great and it felt so good to be outside. About halfway through the run I realized that while it isn't hot yet, it is still quite humid. My legs were really dragging on the last one, but no pain or soreness so I am glad. I am not going to skimp on electrolytes for the rest of the summer!
