Run 46:00 [3] 8.5 km (5:25 / km)
shoes: VJ Spikes

Warmup with Speedy and Eddie. Saw muchos raspberrios on our travels. How could we just run by? Got to the Kewl KM^2 where we ran around a part in the crazy downpour. Then back.

I got us a bit lost after missing a turn. We had to crash through some crap (luckily laden with raspberries.)

Orienteering 35:10 [4] **** 5.1 km (6:54 / km) +170m 5:55 / km
shoes: VJ Spikes

Running Sandy's Green course from the April Fair Hill meet (a WOC 2006 middle distance course in disguise.)

Started 3 minutes after Speedy and 2 before Eddie. Probably 8 minutes after Sandy/Dasha?

A very good race. A little route choice hesitation on 2, but once committed, pushed it. Also, a bit of a hesitation on 4 when I misread and thought I was going to 5. Maybe 30 seconds lost?

Saw Dasha and Sandy at 5.

On the way to 8 another downpour started. This was wild. It was raining, thundering like crazy. The woods were dark and intense.

It somehow helped me to increase my concentration and I kept spiking things, though I lost whatever edge I had in the legs. Last 1/3 dragged.

EricW was spectating in the last control picking area.

Finish run in was tough! And visually neat, as the rain was like a shroud.

Eddie and I did about the same time. I had thought 30 minutes would have been a doable time, but after running the course I realize that was out of reach. Not sure why. I wonder what a good time is?

Orienteering warm up/down 21:00 [2] *** 3.0 km (7:00 / km)
shoes: VJ Spikes

Control pickup with Speedy. Wow, I think we were beat. Ate lots of berries on the way back (Dasha picked some for me.)

Run 1:47:00 [3] 21.0 km (5:06 / km)
shoes: Old Asics

TNT Media.

Vadim was our platoon leader. He set a good pace, not to hard, not to soft. Decent level 3 run.

A little up, a little down.

Run 1:30:00 [2] 11.8 mi (7:38 / mi)
shoes: Asics

TNT Classic.

Felt quite lethargic before and afterwards, but seemingly OK during. Made it down to Ridge Avenue in 44:00 or so.

The split down to Walnut Lane and the split back were both around 23:30-23:40.

Definitely a level 2 effort.

Run back up to Sandy's/TheClubHouse was tough. I guess it was hot.

Great dinner by Anne and really nice wine from Bob.

Total distance an estimate.
We had pasta salad, shrimp cocktail, and regular salad. Just perfect. I skipped dessert.

Orienteering 1:20:00 [2] **** 10.0 km (8:00 / km)
shoes: VJ Spikes

FCE training with Speedy.

Some extreme O thrown in: finding platforms and circle ditches in way high, super thick medium green. Spiked them! Somehow.

Also, some kamikaze downhill running ~ 5:00 per k through ferns and rocks. Speedy is crazy.

Mosquitos were terrible.

Pizza afterwards.
