The motala at Fresh Pond was a total hoot, and I wanted to see what it looked like. So, feast your eyes!

None of the five of us actually had course one first - it was the third course for Ian and Brendan, and the second for Bill, Alex and myself. Was having a bear of a time georeferencing the map, but then i realized the three scans of the three courses didn't quite line up, and I'm too lazy to tailor each individually, so we can deal. Also, the courses don't start at the map exchange, because we actually did it across the trail. and #8 might've been ever-so-slightly misplaced, but no biggie.

I'll get the other two up when I get a chance - and probably slow them down a touch. Course 3 looks like the interesting one. Aside from me blowing a minute on it. bah.

fresh pond park-o motala! had map order 2-1-3

Had a good, solid run for once. Helped that Ari and Ed had the same map order, though. Highlights include a huuuuge patch of poison ivy at the third control on course 2, an epic mud skating recovery, and some 'ooohs' from innocent bystanders when leaping a fence at full tilt. lowlights include dropping in too early on course 3, control 3, and coming pulling up too early on course 3, control 6. ari was way faster, saw him coming out of C3-4 while i was going in. put some distance on ed by making the frontal assault on C1-5, and barely held him off through the end.

everyone's got their own take on poison ivy, and at one point we mentioned tecnu. i'm convinced the new stuff is homeopathic hogwash, but ed pointed out their older formula was more a straight abrasive, which seemed like an idea. i've bought into the 15-minutes-and-the-urushoil-is-bound school, but i still went at my legs with machinist's soap afterwards. mmmm, orangey, and pumicey.

Climbing (Gym) 2:15:00 [3]

better workout than usual - less crowded on wednesday and easier to keep up the pace. downclimbed every V1 i could find, except one V1+ that i didn't see before moving on to V2's. didn't get any V3's before moving on to toprope. could've cleaned a super crimpy 5.11b - my two hangs were from screwing up the sequence, not from grip failure. first technical crimp climb i've done well on, and a bit of a new high water mark. cleaned a 5.10a on lead, also a first. butchered a crimpy 5.10c on toprope, and then suuuuucked on the 5.10 uber-lead in the cave. i felt great, but it was a sweatly, ugly mess, with a hang and nearly every clip, and a shameful 15ft lead fall to end it. good workout, though.

ahr:160 max:174

switched climbing to wednesday, so snuck in a quick run in the rain. running in the rain's fun! HR was lower than I would've guessed for the pace - the benefits of a rain-cooled engine?

1:30 recovery, 23:25 5k pace

i hesitate to call this orienteering. bailed after the fourth attempt at relocating on 12. really pissed that i gave up, but I was already 30 minutes late for mother's day dinner when i did. and that was only the icing on a shitty orienteering cake of shitty orienteering.

1: came up short near the control. set the tone
2: spike
3: drifted north after leaving the trail. decent relocation at first to stem the bleeding, but drifted again
4: spike
5: wow. drifted out of the gate, relocated quickly and well, and then totally misread the contours
6: spike
7: spike
8: spike
9. third in a series of increasingly spectacular fiascos
10: spike
11. okay
12. the 1.8km, 28 minute fustercluck of a finale
and retreat

QR, for posterity

also, it didn't all suck. splitwise, had a first, second, third, and a few fourths. and then like four 16th's in a row

Running 10:00 [3] 1.6 km (6:15 / km)

trying to see if cooper will run. he does, but on his own terms. and only if there's nothing more interesting than... well, he's got a low bar for distraction.
