(rest day)

Unpacking, doing tons of muddy laundry, and catching up on everything that built up in the 4 days I was away.

orienteering race 2:39:12 [3] *** 7.8 km (20:25 / km) +320m 16:56 / km

East Fork State Park - US Ultralong Championships - Green (F-Green)

I was so physically beat before even starting. Pretty much the entire time I didn't get above a fast hiking pace. However, the weather was gorgeous and I really enjoyed most of my time in the woods. I also had zero problems navigating and found everything right where I expected it to be. Everything was super muddy, and I do hate sliding down and clawing my way up the slopes, but it is kind of fun on some sick level. All in all a really enjoyable weekend of orienteering, and I was especially pleased with my pace on Friday and Saturday even if it didn't translate into results in a much more competitive class than I am used to.

orienteering race 25:55 [5] *** 2.9 km (8:56 / km) +60m 8:06 / km
17c slept:6.5 shoes: VJ LOPs

Miami University Sprint - Course 3 (Red F-21)

Calf hurts, pulled it or something in yesterday's race. Felt like I was hitting the wall shortly after I started but kept pushing and did mostly run, though slowly. No big issues, most choices were just which way to run around the buildings.

orienteering race 29:48 [4] *** 2.7 km (11:02 / km) +70m 9:46 / km
14c slept:6.5 shoes: VJ LOPs

College Suites - Sprint - Course 3 (Red F-21)

Absolutely no recovery from this morning, calf hurting even more. I did a lot more walking this time. Small mistake on the trails heading to 6, aside from that fairly clean, just slow.

Friday Apr 4, 2008 #

orienteering 30:00 [1] *** 1.6 km (18:45 / km)
9c slept:7.0 shoes: VJ LOPs

Walking the model event with Corrine

orienteering race 55:42 [5] *** 4.3 km (12:57 / km) +150m 11:02 / km
20c slept:7.0 shoes: VJ LOPs

Rentschler Forest - Red (F-21 World Ranking Event)

Beginning was very sprint-like in an old camp and I went out way too fast. Pretty beat by number 8 but tried to keep pushing through the woods. Two errors - number 13 (semi-parallel error, looking too early) and number 17 (complete and utter stupidity, running off in the wrong direction)

(rest day)

Equestrian club meeting, cleaning house, packing for THE PIG!!

Tuesday Apr 1, 2008 #

road run 18:36 [4] 2.0 mi (9:18 / mi)
shoes: Asics Trabuco

Started heading to the gym, then decided it was too nice to be inside. Came home and did the outside loop of my neighborhood. It is almost exactly a mile and fairly close to flat (some very moderate slopes)

First mile - 8:59
Second mile (walking see below)
Third mile - 9:37

Faster because I'm not limited to a set speed like on the treadmill, although I find running outside to be much more psychologically daunting. Somehow, looking at the vast expanse of road ahead of me makes me feel exhausted before I even start... LOL.

Also, I swear every yard has an invisible fence and a yipping mutt to shadow me down to the end of his property.

walking 14:16 [2] 1.0 mi (14:16 / mi)
shoes: Asics Trabuco

The second mile
