9 AM

Running warm up/down 7:20 intensity: (3 @0) + (37 @1) + (6:40 @2) 1.14 km (6:27 / km) +9m 6:12 / km
ahr:162 max:172 shoes: Humberto & Georgette (O-Roc 28

Short warmup around the school area. Reminded myself of my plan to walk until I knew exactly what I was going to do, and to make sure I was running to something and not just running.

Orienteering race 1:26:50 intensity: (8 @0) + (2:00 @1) + (49:32 @2) + (29:41 @3) + (5:29 @4) **** 8.19 km (10:36 / km) +194m 9:29 / km

Fall Foliage Festival Classic, Baldwin Hill.
Map and, for kicks map w/ HR data.

Well, I *did* walk from the start and through the start triangle until I figured out my route to the first control. And the first control was fine. I did basically the same for the first 6 controls, though I had some execution errors, especially on 4. My plan was okay, and I was doing just fine, but I didn't have *enough* thing to look for. Spooked by some rocky stuff on my right I thought I had gone too far. But I hadn't. And then on the 7th I let another control throw me off. Eugh. A few more errors of execution after that, too.

Basically, there's something else missing. I don't know if I'm just expecting to be able to move and read as fast as I have been able to in the past and muffing stuff, or if I'm just being lazy/undisciplined, or what. But 10 or 12 minutes of errors, while spending a lot of time walking and planning stuff, is definitely not acceptable.
6 PM

Strength/Core 2:00 [3]

You, too, can get your own minute of side-splitting core workout:

ahr:163 max:180 shoes: Humberto & Georgette (O-Roc 28

Didn't have much time for a good warm up, trotted around for about 5 minutes and was then late for my call up.

Trotted around a few more minutes afterwards with Caroline.

Orienteering race 27:05 intensity: (5 @0) + (17 @1) + (2:07 @2) + (7:18 @3) + (10:52 @4) + (6:26 @5) *** 3.4 km (7:58 / km) +61m 7:19 / km

Running warm up/down 15:00 [2]

A bit more warmup for the A final, and then a cool down with Marie after, though before I reran the first half of the course.

This afternoon's race will be referred to as The Course That Must Not Be Named.

ahr:170 max:183 6c shoes: Humberto & Georgette (O-Roc 28

I had to prove to myself that I was capable of orienteering after the episode that was TCTMNBN, so I went back out and reran 1-6. Much better on 1, but still a bit of tomfoolery on 2 and 5.

Tomorrow I am walking until I know exactly where I'm going next. Ha. We'll see how long that lasts.

ahr:159 max:176

At Assabet with mami. I only feel ever so slightly off at this point, but it really seems like my running is still affected by whatever avian flu strain biggins brought back from Tibet.

Orienteering 1:20:00 [2] ***
12c shoes: Humberto & Georgette (O-Roc 28

More O training with Caroline at Mt. Tom, streamered green course controls.

I had her plan her leg before leaving the control and then talk about what she was doing as we ran. She reads contours well but still needs a lot of practice to be confident using them for primary navigation. She also gets really excited when she knows exactly where she is going on an approach to a control and starts to run fast. I couldn't really keep up.
5 PM

Orienteering race 18:30 intensity: (17 @1) + (1:23 @2) + (7:34 @3) + (7:08 @4) + (2:08 @5) ***** 2.65 km (6:58 / km) +1m 6:57 / km

US Corn Maze Orienteering Classic Champs
1.4km, 1m, 22c

Results and photos on the CMOUSA website. Ali, Alex, Caroline and I all wore plaid. And I wore my awesome socks. The plaid was good, but I'm pretty sure the yak hat wins. Soon we'll have to have rock-paper-scissors-lizard-spock-yak hat-plaid.

The classic course was a blast. Really fun orienteering, you really had to keep your focus the whole time. I definitely made mistakes, but apparently less than the people I kept seeing around me who had started way before me. Totally buffed number 9, the map exchange control, with the course setter right there to see me run along a parallel row with no easy way to get out except to turn around. But it gets worse, because I then ran a beautifully executed long leg straight to number 11. Whoops. Made it back to 10 and then back to 11 again and, so far, AP doesn't event detect an error in the splits there. ;-)

This was a lot of fun and I think that we should, quite seriously, do lots more of these!

Orienteering race 4:30 intensity: (18 @1) + (43 @2) + (2:15 @3) + (54 @4) + (20 @5) ***** 0.64 km (7:05 / km) +1m 7:01 / km
ahr:175 max:193 4c shoes: Assumpta (inov8 X-Talon 212)

US Corn Maze Orienteering Sprint Champs
0.3km, 1m, 4c

Devious, as promised, and I ran away from myself a bit. Also took the outside route to the finish, which was no good. Fun again.

Note

A summary of how the Tucson club is going to handle the map issue:

"Our policy for giving away maps comes out to this: We allow club members to use any of our maps for personal and club related use without having to ask for approval. Club members may also distribute copies of our maps to the non-member public for their own personal use, provided the copyright notice is included on the map. Requests for any commercial use of our maps must be approved by our board."

So nice.

Added QR maps from Classic Champs and GLOF to DOMA.

Training with sis at Mt Tom. I think we made progress.

Running 25:14 intensity: (3 @0) + (1:50 @1) + (21:27 @2) + (1:54 @3) 3.67 km (6:53 / km) +92m 6:07 / km
ahr:160 max:179 shoes: Assumpta (inov8 X-Talon 212)

A lovely recovery run with Peter and Tarb out Peter's back door. I would love to be able to run through the woods out my back door.

Feeling a quite a bit better today, though not 100% healthy. I hope to be back in top shape by this Wednesday's Champs.
6 PM

Strength/Core 22:00 [2]

A circuit (12 min) + abs (10 min), with Ali and Caroline while Alex kept her leaking self off of the furniture and Peter avoided doing anything strenuous by volunteering to be the session videographer. I was certainly the weakest of the bunch, and therefore also thankful that this was a very civilized workout.
