Running 26:01 [2] *** 3.0 mi (8:40 / mi)

Ran the Fahrenholz loop with Patty before the Bills game. I read the night-o map they ran on last night, while Patty read the sprint map from Fair Hills.

Running 20:00 [2] 2.29 mi (8:44 / mi)

w/up before and w/dn with Nate after the Fair Hills race.

Orienteering race 1:13:11 [4] *** 7.9 km (9:16 / km) +175m 8:20 / km

Started quite conservatively, but accurately. After playing with the map to check the control code for C4, I refolded with C5 on top and started executing the route to C6. Caught my mistake when I was in the woods too long - luckily I only had to change direction 90 degrees to recover. I was very slow in getting to C9 - lots of hesitation from being too careful leaving C8, but I still ended up on a trail that I didn't want.

Ran OK, so I wound up with a pretty decent finish - huge improvement over my first out-of-town attempts at Flying Pig and West Point. A few more minutes of reading the map on the run, instead of walking or standing still, and I would have picked up a few more places.

Running 15:00 [2] 1.76 mi (8:31 / mi)

w/up and w/dn with Nate before and after sprint.

Orienteering race 16:16 [5] *** 2.6 km (6:15 / km) +80m 5:25 / km

My calf held out ok for the duration of the Fair Hills Sprint. Since we could choose our start times, I gave Nate a 2-minute head start, thinking I would probably pass him in the middle of the course. I was navigating pretty cleanly and running at a reasonable speed (my only bad hesitation on the way to C6 - first because I wasn't sure I stayed on the trail heading S, then when I got to the field, I saw the 3 individual trees across the way, but couldn't see the bag on the middle one. Then I remembered good old C9 at the Flying Pig and "confidently" ran towards the middle tree until the bag became visible), but did not even see Nate until C9, when he came in from the right and punched while I was coming past the trail. I thought I had him at C10 when I cut thru the woods and he went all the way to the field, but he beat me to the punch by several seconds. I chased him the rest of the way, but he did not hesitate, and I could not close the gap at all. It turned out that 8 of our 14 splits were within 2 seconds, and 2 others were only 5 seconds apart.

(injured) (rest day)

Planned a day off, but didn't expect to be trying to treat a calf injury.

Tuesday Nov 8, 2005 #

Running 32:09 [2] 4.0 mi (8:02 / mi)

Went out for an easy run on a beautiful fall day, and noticed by right achilles was a little tight (had noticed it pushing off on turns while swimming yesterday). No big deal. Then, about 1.5 miles in, the lower part of my left calf started barking. The fun, easy run became a struggle to survive. I was planning on taking tomorrow off anyway, so hopefully that will be enough to recover.
