Orienteer race 1:21:50 [3] 4.97 mi (16:28 / mi) +1273ft 13:15 / mi
shoes: 2nd pair - Saucony Guide 3

Peaceful Valley Red Course. Basically just followed footprints in the snow the whole way. I had fun playing in the snow. Two good races in a row. Both of them had easier navigation than usual. Cherry Creek was wide open. Peaceful Valley I could follow footprints and I did a decent job of following the right ones.

This might be a first. I didn't get last on any of the controls. Nearly went past the proper reentrant for 1, but caught it before it was a disaster. Confused myself on 3 and had to stop and look around to make sure I was where I hoped I was. Caught up to Goril at 9. Deviated from footprints to 10- was very confused by a set of car tracks that weren't on the map and stopped. Made my own route again on 12, not the best choice. Caught back up to Goril at 14. A few other pauses to make sure I knew where I was in case the footprints diverged so I could stay on the right track.

Run 38:41 [1] 3.5 mi (11:03 / mi) +672ft 9:21 / mi
shoes: Saucony Mirage

Salsa Brava run. My usual running buddy wasn't there tonight, so I tried to stick with the next group which was going about 12min/mile pace. Gave up running that slow after half of it and dropped to a 10min pace and only one guy stayed with me; and by with me I mean 10m behind me... A little frustrating. I meant it to be an easy run, but that was getting ridiculous. I wish some of my faster buddies would show up to this one since it is so convenient for me. And I know some of the people that were there are faster, but they were running slow to be social.

The good news is that they comped our beer because it was taking so long and my knee didn't hurt and I have 8 quarts of peppermint ice cream in my freezer.

Trinity Brew Co. There went the knee again. Really not sure what is wrong with it. It started hurting pretty suddenly when I started moving again after the stoplight with a mile to go.

Run race 32:59 [4] 3.67 mi (8:59 / mi) +446ft 8:04 / mi
shoes: 1st Pair - Saucony Guide 2

Well that wasn't exactly what I was hoping for!

Fall Series 1. 2 miles on flat nontechnical trail (13:20ish, about what I wanted but probably too fast for what I felt on that day and my lack of higher intensity training), then 0.8mi in the creek, then another 0.8 miles with a few short steep climbs in wet shoes to the finish.

Things fell apart a bit when I started dry heaving right after I got into the creek. That required several minutes of walking to keep things under control. Stomach still felt pretty iffy after I got out of the creek so I didn't run down as many people as I was hoping to. Someone told me I looked deathly pale afterward. Knee felt fine. Legs felt pretty good. Breathing was heavier than I thought it should be for the effort level. Stomach was ridiculous... 93/278OA 10/146F 2/25 F25-29 I was 5th woman into the creek (but only about 20sec behind 1st), 13th woman out, and 10th at the finish from my count. Placed very slightly higher than last year, but I thought I could move up more. I've been flirting with a cold for the past week, so its time to rest and recover.
