walk dog 35:00 [1] 2.0 mi (17:30 / mi)
shoes: Defyance 1 #1 (work backup)

So stiff from the O meet.
Very very stiff

Orienteering (Orienteering meet) 57:48 [5] 4.0 mi (14:27 / mi) +150m 12:57 / mi
shoes: Brooks - screw shoes mudders

I definitely held my own on the last few controls. It was the fist 2/3 of the controls that killed me.

#6 was terrible (even though it was an EASY one). If the map doesn't say water, and you are running through water, you are not where you think you are.....

Run with dog 25:00 [3] 2.5 mi (10:00 / mi)
weight:190lbs shoes: Defyance 1 #1 (work backup)

OK at beginning
Tight achilles at end - take it easy
easy jog - 125 strides .283km --> 44strides/100m

Remember when running anything slower than 7:30 didn't count as training? Oh yeah, 23 years and 34 pounds ago....
What do I say to that? I may be old, but I'm fat too.

Um, I'm running slow....
- so the dog can keep up
- so I don't upset the earth's rotation
- because it's fire season - need to be careful. Hmm, this one only works if I lived in California.
- to give others a chance
- to lull others into a false sense of security.
- so drivers can have time to react to my presence
- to save wear & tear on my shoes, the grass, the pavement...
- so I can get more 'time' in exercising (the doc says at least 30 min/day - didn't say how many miles)
- because I'm tapering for racing season
- so I don't set off car alarms
- so I don't start tornados from the vortices I could leave behind
- so the cops don't get suspicious of my activities.

Speed work 25:00 [4] 2.5 mi (10:00 / mi)
weight:189lbs

Fartlek - 7@100 stride each (~220m)
100 strides = 0.2833 km --> 35 strides/100m
Weight per new scale setting (-000, "do not touch calibration") - will use as baseline from now on, and go by deltas. Last night, it said 196, but I'll ignore that as an outlier.
As a certified six sigma green belt, I can say that.
Dog trying to herd me.

You know you're old when you count walking the dog as exercise
