Trail Run - Long / Easy warm up/down 10:00 [2]
shoes: Adidas Response Trail XI

3 easy jogs to the start

Orienteering race (Bennet Sprint A) 19:15 [4] 2.4 km (8:01 / km) +50m 7:16 / km
shoes: Adidas Response Trail XI

First sprint, messed up one control for about 20sec, rest was pretty clean but certainly wasn't running too fast. Overdressed on the first one, shed some clothes afterwards. Nice map, great weather for January. Felt good to get out in the woods, I think this is the first O I've done since CNYO in September other than mapping.

Orienteering race (Bennet Sprint B) 22:08 [4] 2.4 km (9:13 / km) +50m 8:21 / km
shoes: Adidas Response Trail XI

Second sprint - time from memory. Couple good errors - #3 - crossed road and focused on looking for contour knoll rather than wall/boulder - Rick mentioned that side of road was 'rough' and the contours got me - wound up past control at larger boulder before turning around.. Also bobbled #5 came down hill looking for the large boulder and all I saw were a number of equally sized ones checked a couple bogus sites before seeing the flag. But apparently Peter did the same thing.. Still slow....

Orienteering race (Bennet Sprint C) 21:55 [4] 2.4 km (9:08 / km) +50m 8:16 / km
shoes: Adidas Response Trail XI

Ran straight to #1, green wasn't so bad, then headed down to dirt road and picked up the pace while readjusting map. In doing so I lined myself up for #3 and blazed right on by #2 and probably went 1/3 of the way toward #3 before realizing my error - backtrack. Cost a good 2 minutes. Rest of run was error free - helped by the fact that I'd been to a number of these controls previously - but slow - had to fast walk up the hill the last couple controls - just didn't have the stamina to run them even though there was essentially no navigation to worry about on the final couple controls.

Bike - Slipstream (Gulf & back) 32:00 [3] 11.3 km (2:50 / km) +180m 2:37 / km
shoes: Slipstream

Another quickie ride before dark. More ice and wet dirt. Went further this time, explored a short dirt road I'd never been down and went up to Gulf Road, then turned around and came home. Although it wasn't really dark, I would feel better with some lighting on the bike to be seen.

Still getting used to having 9 speeds in back (versus the 6 on the other bikes). Going to have to practice spinning on hills - I found cadence slowing down substantially on most grades - no problem mashing my way up, but I'd rather be spinning rather than mashing..

Bike - Slipstream (East Porter) 25:00 [3] 11.5 km (2:10 / km) +185m 2:01 / km
(sick) shoes: Slipstream

Squeezed a short ride in before dark. Icy patches in places and quite a bit of wet sand still on the road. Down to Grahaber, then up Webster to East Porter and return. Caught the shoelaces on the chainring a couple times - have to find a solution to that. Also need to move the steering tie rod in slightly. Other than that the bike rode very nicely, though the engine needs quite a bit of work at this point.

I guess this means my training for the PMC has begun...

Well this sucks... had the new bike a week now and still haven't gotten it on the road. Have an old wind trainer and some other misc parts lying around - I'll have to see if I can't rig up something to at least ride in the basement until I can get it outside. But between work (on another 12 day stretch now), kids activities in the evenings & such - getting the bike on the road before February doesn't look likely..

And a pretty good chest cold has settled in too so I'm not terribly excited about the prospect of late night and damn cold explorations in the dark right now...
