Running 10:00 [2] 1.67 km (6:00 / km)
shoes: Fall 2009 VJ Falcons

Jogging to and from the start with Ross

Orienteering 1:45:28 [3] *** 11.8 km (8:56 / km)
spiked:24/31c shoes: Fall 2009 VJ Falcons

WCOC Local Meet at Paugussett with excellent courses by Clem.
Told Ross to do the orange course followed by the red to prepare for racing the US Champs, which is supposed to have an 85-minute winning time. The idea was to do orange first so that you are practicing technical navigation when tired towards the end of the red course. Decided I should follow my own advice and do the same.
Had one of these absolutely awful days physically. Just nothing seemed to work - no legs, no power. Was jogging on the trails and could not make myself move faster. Despicable. Ross smoked me by 4:30 on the orange course and 13 minutes (!!!) on the red. Watch out for him next weekend!

Running 1:03:41 intensity: (50:21 @2) + (13:20 @4) 12.74 km (5:00 / km)
shoes: Rob's shoes

Hill intervals at East Rock in the rain that turned to snow just after I got home. Ran the road up from the junction with the old road on the back side up to the T-junction near the top. Cold, wet, and painful, but a decent session, anyway.

Running 1:40:11 [2] 11.13 mi (9:00 / mi)
shoes: Blue Asics 2009

Exploring more trails at West Rock on a beautiful autumn morning. Parked at Wintergreen Reservoir and ran north on the red trail until the second time it crosses Mountain Rd. Then left on the road to the yellow trail. Took the yellow trail to the top and ran the Regicides to the north until the trail started dropping towards Farm Brook Reservoir. Stunning fall colors and gorgeous views both east and west from the top. If it was just a little less rocky, the Regicides would be one of my favorite places to run in the East. Ran back the way I came and added a loop around Wintergreen at the end.

So much for my efforts to create regular, weekly WCOC training sessions. We had six of these in the end of August and September, all of which I organized and which were attended by anywhere from 3 to 20 people. I really hoped that when I went away to Sweden for three weeks, someone would step up and organize a session or two.

I suppose what we need is more active people who are less geographically spread out, as it is really hard for people to travel far, especially on a weekday. I am not in the business of recruiting people to orienteering - some people like spreading the gospel, but I am not one of them. The options that remain, then, are to bring more existing orienteers to New Haven and to increase the appeal of New Haven as a place to train for orienteering. There is also, of course, the default option of not bothering - just doing my own training and that's it. Well, I am not quite done trying yet, so I'll just have to rethink my approach.


A true inspiration and one of the nicest guys you'll ever meet. Go World Champion Marc: !

Running 27:07 [2] 4.72 km (5:45 / km)
shoes: Blue Asics 2009

A shuffle around the flat part of East Rock with Kat, followed by a whole lot of stretching. Felt stiff and sore, of course, but not too bad. The most painful thing was the toe I stubbed on a step in Kat's parents' apartment before leaving for the Highlander yesterday.
