Orienteering race 1:49:50 [3] 7.07 km (15:33 / km) +437ft 14:12 / km
shoes: Montrail Mountain Masochist

Very tough orienteering. One major disaster, on a 1.2 km leg through very complex terrain with many parallel swamps and lines of cliffs, that made it difficult to relocate once I lost contact with the map. That error was frustrating but kind of excusable, because it was indeed a tough leg. While I was wandering around lost, another orienteer, on Green Y (M-Green) came up to me and asked "Could you tell me where we are on the map?", and my answer was very easy: "I have no idea!"

Also lost some time on the next to last control, which was non-trivial but really not all that tough. I just relaxed and took it way too lightly.

Other than that, no big errors, but very slow and cautious, especially after the disaster on control 3.

Last I looked, I was 13th out of 23 in M60.

Walking 22:28 [2] 0.92 mi (24:25 / mi) +583ft 15:16 / mi
shoes: Montrail Mountain Masochist

Running (Treadmill) 30:00 [2] 2.5 mi (12:00 / mi) +320ft 10:42 / mi
shoes: Asics Gel Nimbus 11

Pretty lame workout, but I hadn't done anything for the last several days except course setting and mapping, and I felt like I needed to at least try to wake my legs up prior to the Moreau meet this weekend.

Treadmill at the Webster Rec Center, on what they called the "alpine pass" workout, which went up to an incline of 7% (I could have selected a higher max incline, and I should have). The speed was generally too low for a very substantial workout, with the incline that I used.

Wednesday Oct 13, 2010 #

Course setting 1:29:00 [1] 2.27 mi (39:13 / mi)
shoes: Montrail Mountain Masochist

Streamering some control points at Rotary.

Course setting 1:38:00 [1] 3.0 mi (32:40 / mi)
shoes: Montrail Mountain Masochist

Setting out Sprint controls at the Webster meet, then doing some misc. walking around looking for photo opportunities during the Spring and the Score-O.

(rest day)

Had planned on running, but I felt a hint of a cold coming on, nothing terrible, but since I'm going to the Moreau meet this weekend, I didn't want to aggravate it.

Mapping 3:24:00 [1] 3.8 mi (53:41 / mi)
shoes: Montrail Mountain Masochist

More Rotary mapping. On DEC lands today.

Running 9:23 [3] 1.03 mi (9:06 / mi)
shoes: Gel Kahana 4 July 2010

Short run with grandchild Freddie (about 20 months old) in baby jogger. Not sure how well he'd like it, as I've only tried him in it a couple of times, so I didn't go far. I'd rather have him being happy the whole time, than enjoying it for a while and then losing interest and ending up with an unpleasant recollection of the run. It went very well, he didn't complain at all ... Ran from home, to end of Woodland, down the short trail to the next street, around a block, and then back home.

Definitely more tiring on the arms than running unencumbered.
