Billygoat 2019. Pleasant ride up with feet, hadn't seen him in a while and he was very enjoyable company. Plus he drove which was very nice for me.

Nice but challenging course and I felt overmatched right from the start. Just couldn't keep up. Occasionally I caught up to folks by a little sharper navigating, but physically it just wasn't there. Perhaps some inefficient routes, but only one real error - #11. I got to the small waterhole just W of the control, but got distracted by Sharon's excursion out to the trail and dropped about 3 1/2 minutes. Saw a lot of Sharon on the course. She was ahead and in and out of sight going to 4 and 5, but didn't see her again until almost to 10. After that we were mostly together with me a bit behind, until I got 23 ahead of her and didn't see her again until after the finish. Saw a lot of other people from time to time. Team Lyons mostly in the second half, Peter Goodwin early. Picked up Fred Pilon near #18 and dragged along behind him off and on before pushing past him on the way into the finish.

This was the most enjoyable visual orienteering experience I've had in a generation. Tony Muffatti was kind enough to make me a pair of dremeled-down safety glasses, 3.0 diiopters. I have seen him running with them for a while now and admired them a lot. They were so great! Plus a really nice crisp map print and big red circles, numbers and lines.

Alas I was overtime, very sore back virtually the whole race and thinking pretty strongly that this may be the last time I go out billygoaring. Of course, maybe not. See how things progress.

Map and route

The other weird thing going on is a pretty severe case of hives, now persisted for two full days and continuing to get worse. Tried some benadryl, some hydrocortisone cream. I'll go get some medical attention tomorrow unless there is some radical improvement.

slept:6.5 shoes: 2017 Gray Gel Kayanos

Around Central Park. Turns out that the sorest part from yesterday’s misadventure was a somewhat strained right adductor. Walking helped though. That and some vigorous rolling. Forehead is kind of sore. Knee and shoulder are fine.

I was out anyway and thought I would do a little track work. Didn’t get far. I was in the outside lane, tried to navigate around a gaggle of kids and caught my toe on the foot of a hurdle facing sideways against the fence. Fell hard enough that the workout was over. Three scrapes, R knee, left shoulder, forehead. They’ll heal.
