Orienteering (Training) 12:00 [3] 1.2 km (10:00 / km)

In Harriman State Park, NY. Part of the practice course before the US Team Trials. 3 of 4 controls spiked before I had to run-off to the start.

Running (Warm-up) 5:30 [3] 0.75 mi (7:20 / mi)

In Harriman State Park, NY; From the parking lot near Kanawauke Circle west on Rte 106. The start was 2.5k away and I only had less than 15 minutes. Part way there, Pat Zerfas and her husband gave me a ride and I had plenty of time to calmly get there. Thanks!

Orienteering (Competition) 1:23:24 [3] 4.31 km (19:21 / km)

Running at the US Team Trials on the Surebridge Mountain/Hogencamp Mountain map in Harriman State Park, NY, on a misty cool day. I was definately not trying out for the team and my result tells why. I did okay except for one control which took me +32 minutes. My new e-punch wouldn't work either. I had to punch my bib the whole way. See the Split List.

Running (Street & Trail) 32:56 [4] 5.15 mi (6:24 / mi)

Starting at 11:35pm, From Quill Point Dr., up Prospect Hill Rd. to Bell Station Rd. to the WB&A Trail, to Hillmead Rd. to Quill Point Dr. Walking to the metro train after working late made me feel like running. A room-temperature light rain and light windy night, I felt pretty good. Having run most of this route on Monday, I was faster. I ran 6:34 for the first uphill mile. This is a course PR, though I've only run the route about a dozen times and rarely hard.

Running (Street & Trail) 16:20 [3] 2.36 mi (6:55 / mi)

From Quill Point Dr. Quilt Patch La. to Fletchertown Rd. to Quetzal Dr. to Quill Point Dr. I was working late again. I got out to run anyway in a light rain--I needed it since I haven't been getting much training in lately.

Weights (General) 13:00 [3]

30 pushups, 45 situps and dumbells.

Running (Track) 51:11 [5] 10.7 km (4:47 / km)

At the UMD Track. I ran 10x200m with a runner from the Terrapin Running Club (a student group) while other PGRC runners were working out too. It has been a while since making it to the track and I've run hardish the last couple days so I kept the quantity and distance low. Running 200m, the jogging 200m, I had the following splits: 33, 34, 34, 34, 34, 34, 34, 33, 35, 34.

Weights (General) 4:00 [3]

30 pushups, 45 situps.

Running (Street & Trail) 36:19 [4] 5.4 mi (6:44 / mi)

From Quill Point Dr., up Prospect Hill Rd. to Bell Station Rd. to the WB&A Trail, just past Hillmead Rd. on the trail to the park at Poplar View Dr., then Hillmeade Station Rd. to Hillmead Rd. to Quill Point Dr. I felt strong despite yesterday's long effort. I ran 6:47 for the first uphill mile. Being cool, it was very nice for running.

Weights (General) 14:00 [3]

30 pushups, 45 situps and dumbells.

Running (Warm-up) 5:00 [2] 0.75 mi (6:40 / mi)

On the Trout Brook map near Weston/Easton Connecticutt. To the start, to parking & to the start.

Orienteering (Competition) 1:49:53 [4] 12.6 km (8:43 / km)

The Billygoat on the Trout Brook map near Easton/Weston Connecticutt. This wasn't very satisfying in a number of ways. I fell into following Ted Good for half the run. Having de-trained from working too much and not training lately, I was sluggish from the start. It would have been more fun to plot my own routes and gain the confidence needed to run in the rocky technical areas. Past the midway point, I got a little ahead of Ted and blindly started after Bernie Bretton while he was making a mistake. We had passed the control. Ted caught-up and then ran back to the control (#16). I wasn't sure at this point what happened so I went on. After seeing Ted and Andy Hall come back and keep going, I fatefully decided to skip the control and again follow them. I guess it was a confidence thing complicated by being in oxygen debt. Like last year, I ran practially the whole course without benefiting from a skip and finished in 27th place again. I didn't feel like I orienteered until the last quarter of the run. At least I got in a good workout...
