ahr:180 max:188

2.5k Sprint at Kennedy Woods in Forest Park
Awesome urban venue for a sunny race in the woods. Had trouble getting on the map during the first 20 seconds or so, but not bad. Was hesitant on number 10 since I was getting dumb at that point, but only lost 5-10 seconds. Route choice to 11 may have been better along the trail/road. Made a minor blunder coming out of 14 and went south, running past the start area, which cost me ~15-20 seconds. Overall good run, but highly unlikely to best AndyD's time of 14:27 without mistakes - that was super fast.... Placed 2nd overall alongside JWilliams.

Running warm up/down 20:00 [2] 2.0 mi (10:00 / mi)

Cool down run while catching up w/ DFrei (Alpine Shop).

6 AM

Running 1:35:00 [3] 10.9 mi (8:43 / mi)
ahr:146 max:170

Run w/Guer, Bulent, & Mo around Isles, Calhoun, and Harriet. Probably should have only done 2 lakes with the SLOC O-meet events starting tomorrow, but I was spurred on by a heated conversation of health care & tobacco. Mo played it smart and ran home after two lakes.

12 PM

Biking 28:00 [2] 6.0 mi (12.9 mph)

Bike to school. Nice weather for a ride - around 40 for sure. Didn't have to wear a shell layer or shoe booties, which is always a nice sign of springtime.

Biking 28:00 [2] 6.0 mi (12.9 mph)

Bike home.

7 AM

Soccer race 50:00 [3]

Match at the U w/ Mo and PDub. Came away with a 3-2 victory, but we should have likely done better. We controlled most of the game and their goals were rather flukey. In the end, glad we didn't let them tie it up.
To PW - ANY goal for your own team is not embarrassing. I thought it was TOEriific! Things could have been worse.... Did you see this?

12 AM

Biking (Salsa Moto Rapido) 2:00:00 [3] 18.0 mi (9.0 mph)
ahr:110 max:169

Midnight Moonlight Alleycat race w/Tom & Scotty. Fox Shadow gave a good description of our ride and the sketchy gas stations that we visited. Downtown is a crazy place to bike at 1am, especially when trying to push the pace in a "race."
What Tom failed to mention is that on the leg to Santana Foods I took us from the Guthrie across the river all the way to where University and Washington came together. This basically turned what would have been less than a mile long leg across the Stone Arch Bridge into a 3.7 mile leg - not a good way to get ahead of our hipster counter parts. Sadly, I can't navigate without a map in Minneapolis, as I don't know street names.... After this mistake, Tom pulled out the trusty iPhone and we had instant map - Ah, we could see the light! From here on out we enjoyed the ride a bit more and kept the pace a bit easier.... The hipsters had already finished the race by the time we came in for the 3rd leg, but that was only a mile or so.... Fun to get out and experience the Minneapolis night scene - I think we only got heckled about 7 times passing by house parties.
Ride home after 2am was a bit chilly, and very reminiscent of the riding done during an adventure race in the early morning before the sun comes up. A little slow and a bit out of it mentally, but still a great time on the trusty steeds with good companions.

9 AM

Soccer race 50:00 [4]

Subbed w/Mo for the Mad Dogs, a team which my bro normally plays for. We dominated most all of the game and came away with a 1-0 win. Wish we could have put a couple more in the back of the net.

Saturday Feb 27, 2010 #

11 AM

Running 1:10:00 [3] 7.3 mi (9:35 / mi)
ahr:138 max:159

Run w/Mo at the Riverbizzles. Cold snow but nice warm air temp - ski pants were too much. Spring is on the move (for the next 2 months)!
11 PM

Biking (Salsa Moto Rapido) 30:00 [3] 7.0 mi (14.0 mph)

Bike to Guthrie w/Tom and Scott for Midnight Commuter Death Ride.
