Orienteering race (Green course) 1:25:41 [4] **** 4.8 km (17:51 / km) +175m 15:06 / km
spiked:9/11c shoes: Jala Jukola Spider 6 #2

An oval today (elongated circle?). :-) Messed up a control after a climb (# 3 again), which I can tend to do if I don't concentrate enough; I probably lost 4-5 minutes, enough to drop from 1st (where I was 3 seconds ahead of Mary Jo Saturday) to 2nd for the day and overall (F50, that is). I finished respectably in regards to the entire Green field, though, so I feel okay about that. Slight bobble at # 6 when I went to the reentrant one over from the control location (but quickly recovered); I only lost about 30 seconds or so here. I did have a lot of company at most of the controls (i.e. others in the control circle, sometimes giving away the flag location so I didn't have to look around too much), so I can't take all the credit.

Another beautiful day, upper 70's; on the warm side for running, but I carried and drank Gookinade today and it helped (when I remembered to drink it) and I didn't feel lightheaded afterwards as I did Saturday.

Event: HVO A-Meet

Orienteering race (Green course) 1:44:37 [4] **** 5.2 km (20:07 / km) +220m 16:36 / km
spiked:12/14c shoes: Jala Jukola Spider 6 (old)

Interesting Green course at Surebridge Mountain in Harriman. It was kind of a big circle, and some of the legs were fairly easy navigationally if you used the big handrails properly. However, I did still manage to mess up two controls; # 3 by not checking my compass enough (especially as I walked right by the proper stream!), and # 5 on a parallel feature, but I think I only lost about 6-7 minutes at most. On this terrain, that's pretty good (for me). :-)

Warm weather (finally; first hot run of the year; I carried water but should have carried Gookinade--which I drank afterwards) -- mid-70's in the middle of the day. Sure was nice for hanging around afterwards.

Exerc. Class 1:00:00 [3]

Step class at the Y, with a substitute teacher (the regular one was sick; the substitute normally leads kickboxing and spinning!). I managed with 2 risers, though I had to take breaks when they did the repeated lunges.

Strength 10:00 [1]

FitLinxx machines at the Y.

Walking 33:37 [2] 2.1 mi (16:00 / mi)
shoes: Saucony Shadow 6000 8.5 #1

66 and Pratt (up to the top of the hill and just a little past; top of the hill is 1 mi from home) and back, stopping to take more photos of the slump.

Exerc. Class 55:00 [1]

"Circuits" with 10 min warmup/stretching, 15 min strength, 10+ min step, then abs and stretching again.

Walking 56:45 [3] 3.54 mi (16:02 / mi)
shoes: Saucony Shadow 6000 8.5 #1

Rt 66 to Alb Tpk to milepost 16 MFA & back. :-)

Checked out the slump on the side of Rt. 66 where it's about 40-50 feet above the nearby creek. Still a couple of feet from Rt. 66, but I bet they'll have to come in to stabilize the slope.

Photo (battery ran out on my camera; I had taken a couple of others but they didn't register. I'll have to go back)

Exerc. Class 55:00 [2]

Standard ex. class (at The Firm), back after a week off (session break; she takes a break every 6-7 weeks, usually coinciding with a Monday holiday). Nice to be back. :-) Not a really strenuous session, but I did work up a sweat doing weights after the second step portion.
