DVOA Chasing the Star - Lehigh University Sprint - Red (F-21+)

Started out fast -- no issues through first 6. Really tiring after that -- I always tend to go out too quickly and the tank goes dry really fast. Lost time on 14 -- ended up going around the building on the right, then was confused when there were no manmade objects, then realized they were ABOVE... I hadn't done a sprint yet where different levels of buildings came into play. So I need to practice reading that type of map. Same issue with 15, I completely missed the opening for the stairwell to go up. I ended up running around the much larger plaza type area near the finish... very confused... of course where everyone could see :-) Finally got my head screwed back on straight and finished up with no more problems. My pace for this was slower than I would have liked, though the 2 large errors may account for most of that. I need to learn to pace myself better in shorter races so I have more energy throughout. Also to concentrate and *read* the map even when I'm near the end and tired.

horseback riding (english) 1:00:00 [3]

Lesson on William. W/T/C, then down into the pasture where we jumped some XC and natural type jumps that are set up for the Sally Cousins clinic tomorrow. It was windy and all the horses were getting pretty strong so we did a few down there and then went back into the ring and jumped 2 courses.

I find it extremely interesting that my MP3 player, which has over 1000 songs loaded and is always set to shuffle, seems to constantly play music that is exactly fitting for what is on my mind.

Wanted to go ride today, but I was filling in at work overnight. Came home to take a nap and then woke up to thunderstorms. It'll be 2 more weeks at least til I can get out to see Blackjack and I already haven't been there in awhile. The only thing I hate about how busy my spring weekends get.

DDR 45:00 [2]
