Running 38:53 [2] 6.51 km (5:58 / km) +156m 5:20 / km
shoes: O-VJ Integrator Spikes

21 minutes up Mt. Misery at 2-effort, then back. Got 10m past the corner of Forge Mtn & Hamilton. Staying on the trails a bit more, as the poison ivy seems especially fierce this year.

Event: Billygoat

Running warm up/down 5:00 [2] 1.0 km (5:00 / km) +10m 4:46 / km
shoes: O-VJ Integrator Spikes

Crappy warm up, no cool down. The better disciplined Australian at the event went for a 40 minute cooldown... and that type of extra effort shows in his results...

Orienteering race 1:29:45 intensity: (24 @1) + (29 @2) + (14:50 @3) + (1:12:45 @4) + (1:17 @5) 12.9 km (6:57 / km) +270m 6:18 / km
shoes: O-VJ Integrator Spikes

Billygoat. Overall it was a pretty fun race, but I wasn't too happy with my result. Physically I was feeling slow, esp. at the start. Didn't really speed up, nor did I slow down for the duration. Although looking at my HR, I apparently did hit a reasonable effort by about 10 minutes in, and held that through about 40, after which I did fade substantially (fr. 170 AHR, toward 155 AHR, until I kicked myself to move faster in the last 5-10 minutes.)

No major navigation errors, although my route to 3 was wimpy-around (lost 20 seconds), my skip of 4 had a poor start (aiming toward 4 for a bit lost 30 seconds), missed a trail segment later on (thought it was a north line) and a few other little things.

As I was getting run by constantly on the first 3 (got to 2 ~3rd or 4th only because I followed Greg on a better line while the lead pack swerved right), I decided for an early skip, and was (due to skip) alone in the learn on 5, 6 & 7. At 8, I was already back to ~5th as the skip of 7 was comparable, and I settled in with Sergei Z. (who was moving a bit faster than me) and Alexei (who was moving my speed) for the next few controls. Got hung up in some green, then a marsh early in the long leg, then a new unmapped trail later in the long leg, and ended up 1-2 minutes behind Sergei & Alexei coming into 13-14, with Ross (who hadn't skipped) just behind them, the Joe & I arriving at 13 about the same time. Got ahead of Joe and caught Alexei (who got really stuck in the swamp) by taking the best route to 15, then rang with Alexei (and apparently Joe a bit behind) through 20. Alexei went left out of 20 first, then I went right, then Joe went left. Somehow, by 21, the order had reversed, with Joe now nearly 1 minute ahead, and Alexei behind. Joe apparently heard me in the forest on the way toward 22, but I hesitated a bit in there too, so didn't know he was ahead of me until I was in the field, seeing him run in to the finish.

Great run for Joe. A bit of a disappointment in my placing, as I was 2nd 2 years ago (with a much weaker field, admittedly.) Some days are like that.

Running 21:05 [2] 3.88 km (5:26 / km) +68m 5:00 / km
shoes: R-NB Black

Early morning run before a long day flight from LAX to MHT...

Stayed on Bob Lux's boat this evening. A boat he sailed around the world for 7 years, which is now up on stilts in his driveway, next to a little bridge over a bubbling creek, accessible by a 12ft ladder.

Running 36:00 intensity: (23:00 @2) + (3:00 @3) + (10:00 @4) 6.5 km (5:32 / km) +90m 5:11 / km
max:167 shoes: R-NB Black

Two little tempo loops around UCLA. This would be a good place for a Sprint.

L-hamstring was pretty sore while sitting on Thu., so the 3k tempo run apparently did upset it. Not terribly, but not great, so today's 2nd-hard-workout was much tamer.

Running 1:21:19 [2] 13.81 km (5:53 / km) +350m 5:14 / km
ahr:136 max:147 shoes: R-NB Black

Up to the end of Bel-Air avenue, and back to westwood. A pretty ridgeline with view of downtown LA. Very steep hills down to the canyons on each side.

Running warm up/down 56:12 [2] 9.67 km (5:49 / km) +120m 5:28 / km
ahr:137 shoes: R-NB Black

Warmup loop out through a bit of Beverly Hills, going by a really fancy portion of Charring Cross road recommended by the UCLA running club, with several castle like mansions and gated lots, including a segment by a house I've seen on TV before... As seems to be usually around here, most of the fancy lots present little more to see than high walls or hedgerows. Although even the wall architecture is pretty cool.


It was very hot here today for today's 6pm running, and is still quite hot at 10pm. I'm apprently in the middle of a very small microclimate zone where it's about 85 here, and 10-20 degrees colder 10 miles away in every direction...

Running tempo 11:04 [4] 3.0 km (3:41 / km)
ahr:175 max:185 shoes: R-NB Black

Negative splitted a bit as I aimed to break 11 and didn't quite.
3:00 at 800m
5:59 at the mile

This is in lieu of intervals as I avoid the esp. fast stuff until my hamstring heals. It's still tweaked (starts burning if I sit too long...) but not quite as bad the last few days as last week.

Running 1:35:00 [2] 17.0 km (5:35 / km) +320m 5:06 / km
ahr:136 max:149 shoes: R-NB Black

UCLA, then up Stone Canyon Road in Bel Air to the end and then a loop around UCLA. Some fancy houses up that road. A smaller one was listed at $5.2M, or $14,900/mo.
