Orienteering race (Red course) 2:23:44 [3] 5.87 mi (24:29 / mi) +1594ft 19:29 / mi
slept:6.0 shoes: Salomon Speedcross (2014)

Apparently I used up all my speed and accuracy yesterday... This sucked -- way too steep for me, and I spent ~one hour trying to find #11. Ugh. If not for the self-inflicted disaster at #11, I probably would have enjoyed the course.

As I was heading to #14 (of 21), I could see the Finish and I knew I had already been out for a little over two hours, so I headed in to DNF. Jim pointed out when I was downloading that I could complete Green if I went to #14 and two others close-in, so I did that. Exhausted afterwards.

My GPS tracks will be entertaining / embarrassing, if I bother to put them in QuickRoute. :-P

Orienteering race (Red course) 1:42:11 [3] 6.73 mi (15:11 / mi) +899ft 13:29 / mi
slept:6.0 shoes: Salomon Speedcross (2014)

Red course at Camp Elim, consisting of four loops. It rained quite a bit while I was running, but it was warm so it wasn't miserable to be soaked.

I finished second (behind Troy), but there were only five people on Red (most people did Green).

Very fun.

My running group isn't meeting this week, but my assignment was: "4 mile run, hilly but comfortable". I decided to do four laps of the one-mile hill progression loop. Ran 4 miles, walked the rest.

Run / Hike race 1:01:48 [3] 6.2 mi (9:58 / mi)
slept:6.0 weight:114.7lbs shoes: Brooks Adrenaline (2016)

"Let Freedom Run" 10K. This race started and finished at the rec center a quarter-mile from my house, on trails I'm very familiar with -- how could I not do it? :-)

I didn't have a specific goal or plan, but then I decided along the way that I'd like to finish under one hour. Unfortunately, the last mile was all uphill, including the steeper segments my running group uses for the hill progression and hill repeat workouts, and that part was tough.

I was amazed to hear my name called for 3rd place (out of 15 finishers) in the 40-49 group -- wow! I got a cool pint glass as a prize.

Looking at the results, the woman I passed on the last hill finished only two seconds behind me (I didn't realize she had gained on me after I passed her). And now I have an anxious-dread feeling of "what if I had blown it and lost out on 3rd place by two seconds?!" That would have sucked.

Yoga @ the rec center. Thankfully it wasn't nearly as leg-intensive as it can sometimes be (since I'm doing a 10K tomorrow morning).
