shoes: none

TNT hurricane edition.

Ran on the beach with Eddie, Greg, and Tom. Awesome. Really sublime time with sand and water sandblasting alternative sides of the face. Did develop some blisters on the very wet sand.

Orienteering 26:39 [4] *** 3.55 km (7:30 / km) +160m 6:08 / km
shoes: New VJ Spikes

TNT orienteering training at Ridley. Eric set some streamers in one of the "better" parts of Ridley. Unfortunately, I neglected to inform TNTers that we would be doing technical training or going off trail, so some were in shorts. Mea culpa.

My plan was to run this hard, with the inclusion of a longish trail running leg to the "start" at the top of the red trail hill and back. I did the loop twice, first from Z-A and then A-Z. Orienteered very well, but by the end, it was very dark. Night O anyone?

Run 1:07:00 [2]
shoes: New VJ Spikes

TNT. I was late due to extenuating but not unforseen circumstances. I ran some with Sandy and then harder back.

Return split was 19:46.

It was very, very dark. Two large trees had fallen across the drive, requiring stopping and stepping over.

(rest day)

Unfortunately I could not get out to train today. I spent the entire evening going over night O and sprint courses.

Sunday Aug 27, 2006 #

Orienteering 1:30:00 [2] *** 9.0 mi (10:00 / mi)
shoes: New VJ Spikes

Course setting for SS and night O. Actual time in forest was 5-5:30. It was one of the least pleasant course setting experiences ever, as it rained continuously, and really hard around 5:00 when I was trying to find a formline reentrant in light green for a night O control. JJ thinks his course is hard? Actually, I never found it to my satisfaction (or another site) so I think both of those have got to go.

The other two night Os are fine, actually probably rather nice.

The sprints ought to be really good, especially the final, final courses. There will be no doubt that the winner is the strongest and smartest sprinter this side of Wingstedt. I wonder if Freddie's got what it takes?

I do need to go back up and spend a few hours clearing brush and trees. Any volunteers?

The first courses are still a bit unsettled, but the current versions would definitely work.
