Orienteering race 1:12:29 [4] *** 5.75 km (12:36 / km)
spiked:8/16c slept:7.0

WRE Middle at Ansonia Nature Park

My struggles this spring continue. Details in the leg comments. Biggest error was C12, where I now realize I was still running on the bearing set for C11.

Running warm up/down 14:00 [2] 1.4 mi (10:00 / mi)

Jogged to the start (600m) with Z ahead of time, then nate, Z and I took the "shortcut" back to the parking lot, using the model map (none of us with a compass). That took longer than expected, so Z had to hustle back to the start to make his time.

Minimal jogging afterwards.

FCH3 from a house near R-H high school. It was CT's birthday hash.

slept:5.25 (rest day)

No running for me today. Instead, I was an awful parent.

We had a meet against Canandaigua, and almost everyone ran the mile (21 entrants for Schroeder - the official asked if we wanted to run two sections). We only had 16 in the 800.

I put together 5 relays for the 4x800. The top two relays won by about a lap, and finished less than 2 seconds apart. The other three relays finished within 5 seconds, with the final order being opposite of the order after the third leg. Lots of fun!

Elliptical 21:30 [3] 2.0 mi (10:45 / mi)
slept:6.0 weight:160.5lbs

So, I was going to take the day off, after running longer than planned yesterday, and working almost 12 hours (and not having lunch); however, a government employee was intruding in my kitchen when I got home, so I got the hell out of there.

I didn't really feel like running, so it was off to the Y, where I first jumped on the elliptical and pressed the performance button. That triggered the "fitness test" which started out at 10/1, and gradually built up. By 15 minutes, it was up to 10/14 and was pretty challenging. When it got up to 10/20, it was a major struggle and I had to eventually call it quits.

The weight is unfair, since it was after the workout, but it was nice to see it 6.5 lbs less than last Thursday or so.

Biking 25:00 [2] 6.75 mi (3:42 / mi)

Next up was some biking. I did the Auto Pilot program and only averaged 89rpm. My HR seemed to stay below 110, which was very strange, given the perceived effort and the amount of sweat on my shirt.

Erging 17:27 [3] 4.0 km (4:22 / km)

Finally, in honor of Chelsea making it into MIT's second boat (a 4) for Nationals, I jumped on the erg. I was a little lacking in energy, and my back was a bit sore from the bike, so I did 4K as follows:
1K @ 26 (2:15.2 pace)
1K @ 28 (2:09.6)
1K @ 26 (2:16.0)
1K @ 30 (2:02.8)

The downside of Chelsea making it to nationals is that she doesn't get to come home, or at least not for long, between finals and her summer job at Mass General. But I didn't realize that her team is quite respectable - their first boat is ranked 7th in the country, according to the latest poll.

Running 38:09 [2] 4.24 mi (9:00 / mi) +19m 8:52 / mi

We lost our track meet at Rush-Henrietta, 83-58, while missing a couple of our top point scorers in an avoidable incident. Brycen was again the highlight, popping a 47.8 in the 400. AJ had a perfect sit-and-kick to win the 1600. But overall we didn't have quite enough without Nico and Kevin.

Afterwards, since I was so close to Mendon Ponds, I headed over there for a short run, thinking 30 minutes. But it was such a nice evening and I wound up on a trail I've never been on before (it was labeled Swamp Trail at one point). The route is broken in two; this piece is the start until just before the point that I realized I had come around in a complete circle.

Running 16:29 [2] 1.85 mi (8:55 / mi) +15m 8:42 / mi

This is the final part of the run, where because of the darkness, I bailed out to Clover for the return to the car. It included 7:19 pace from the road near the nature park or whatever, back up to the road where I parked.

Orienteering race 1:49:30 [3] *** 7.5 km (14:36 / km) +300m 12:10 / km
spiked:15/22c slept:7.0

Just when I thought the weekend couldn't possibly get any worse, boom. I had one control where I did not check the code, as I was busy remembering to punch while I was drinking water. It was the wrong control. Ironically, this is also the control where Zach MSP'd. He thought he punched before he drank (that was his plan coming into the control), but the punch was not recorded on his stick.

I still have a very tough time differentiating the rocks and stuff that I see in the terrain, with the rocks and stuff on the map.

I took the safe route around to C1 and thought I was off to a good start. But I had a couple of small misses and Ethan had caught me be C4, I think. I went the long way to C5 and almost caught back up to Ethan, who had gone straight with a big lead from the gate. As it turns out, I missed C6 to the left and saw the water and did my MSP. I had a heck of a time with C7 (because I wasn't coming from C6) and had to relocate off the tower up top - I could not figure out how my bearing had been off by 120m on that short leg. Now I know.

I was already running out of gas, thanks to the heat and climb, when I got to C13, and flipped over the map to reveal the shockingly long leg to C14. After some initial playing around in the brambles to discover, and recover from the uncrossable fence, I did what I could to keep moving. I got a second wind on the way to C15, but that just caused me to lose track of the distance and overrun C15 to the next big boulder which did not have a control, but I got the bright idea that I might be short, so i went to the next big boulder and there was a control, but it was C16. Ouch, back up the hill. Then slow but steady on the short finishing loop.

Running warm up/down 5:00 [2] 0.57 mi (8:45 / mi)

Minimal w/up as I decided to purchase some O-shoes shortly before the race, since the running shoe thing hadn't worked so well yesterday.
