I drove Roger to the airport then went for a short run at Des Moines Creek Park, while I was in the neighborhood. My ankle/achilles/soleus injury didn't hurt, although I did feel a bit of tension in my achilles a couple times. I ran into copious amounts of fencing associated with the construction of the unnecessary jail.

I rode my bike to the O meet at Woodland Park.
My tooth feels much better today.

I ran at an easy (in deference to my injury) pace through course 3 at Cascade's National Orienteering Day event at Woodland Park. The map had only major bounding roads, contours, rock features, and out-of-bounds areas, but I know the park so well that my brain filled in many of the other relevant features, which made the course easier than it would've been at an unfamiliar venue. I lost almost no time due to navigation.
I think I was 5th, behind Nikolay Nachev (21:29), Matej Urban (22:50), Rick Breseman (24:24), and Patrick Nuss (24:38). The top woman was Anna Urbanova (31:01), followed closely by JWOC team aspirant, Tracy Whelan (31:45) and Sue Kuestner (32:49).
My achilles/soleus didn't bother me at all during or after the run, but it still hurts some when I dorsoflex the ankle very far.
Root canal today, my first. Tooth #18 (lower left second molar). No abscess yet, just a bit of inflammation, so the procedure was straightforward and the prognosis good. My canals are long and narrow, so the endodontist(?) said it was a bit tricky, but that he thought it had gone well. The anesthesia lasted for four hours, but after the numbness subsided, it ached a moderate amount. The temporary filling is really tall, so it was a hassle to try not to put pressure on it.

I walked to do the rest of the Street Scramble vetting for Brew HA-HA. Greg scouted a ton of fun controls, so I've got plenty to choose from in making the final course.
Again, it was fun, and again, I tried to walk briskly for much of the time. I really tried to push my walking pace on one stretch toward the end, and I ended up doing 12:45 pace for a little over half a mile. Although my heart rate barely grazed 100 beats per minute, a faster walk would have felt forced and uncomfortable.
My left, lower leg felt fine during my time out, which was a welcome change from Sunday.
