Orienteering (Pawtuckaway Red 2) 1:00:00 [2] *** 3.0 km (20:00 / km)
shoes: Salomon TR2

Rainy day. They put me down as HFA - but I didn't. I just couldn't see well enough in woods to make a difference. All controls were boulders and most I couldn't see if I was leaning on them. Had to rely on blind compass bearings and large (open marsh type) catching features. Very slow. I pretty much hit the circle on the first 4 controls, but had to hunt, a great length a couple of times before I could actually find a flag. Seemed to have a good leg going to #5, hit the stonewall near the hill top I wanted to (I think) but went across the marsh and couldn't find the boulder - then could'nt find my way back to the correct marsh. After a while realized I had been in the woods for an hour, was soaking wet, slightly chilled and not gaining anything from the experience, so I walked a slow bearing until I hit some trails and ran in, calling it a day at 4 controls. Very discouraging.

Trail Run - Long / Easy (Red Course Bailout) 15:00 [3] 3.0 km (5:00 / km)

Trail run and along the park road in pouring rain. But a good brisk run....

Orienteering (Vampire O) 42:00 [1] ***
shoes: Salomon TR2

Vampire O with the family... enjoyable excursion, didn't get vamped, found the missing monkey control as well as the ghost control (not mapped), plus the good vampires...

Orienteering (Pawtuckaway White 1) 46:00 [1] ***
shoes: Salomon TR2

White course with Jackson (Hayden in tow). Not focused on orienteering through #6, then something got into him and he actually ran the last two controls. Had to reel him in where he almost made a couple mistakes, but just told him to stop and check his map, without telling what the mistake was, he figured things out ok.

Other (Canoe - O) 53:00 [3] **

Canoe-O with Hayden - took a double kayak. Got 9 of 14 with time to spare... Fun trip on the lake..

Orienteering race (Pawtuckaway Red 1) 1:21:20 [4] *** 6.2 km (13:07 / km)
shoes: Salomon TR2

Hot, muggy day. Knew that if I went out running fast I'd boom real quick and real bad. So made the decision to pick conservative routes, execute them slowly but accurately and run a little bit but only where prudent. Pretty clean all the way around including some good routes I might not have chosen had I been running more aggressively. Lost about 2 minutes on #9 when I turned up hill after the vague area a little early and got north of the control, but hit the marsh quickly and placed the three large boulders and attacked from there. Ran hard the last couple controls as the terrain was well known and safe to run hard. First place on Red by 24 seconds ahead of a handful of names I don't know. Quite pleased with the run and evidence that I can actually perform better by slowing down, something Peter has suggested too many times....

Trail Run - Long / Easy (Random Running around) 45:00 [2]
shoes: Salomon TR2

Accumulated running around on Saturday - jogging to the bathrooms with the boys, running back to campsite to close up tent before showers etc....

Run - Trail (Crandalls) 41:34 [3] 8.0 km (5:12 / km) +150m 4:45 / km
shoes: Salomon TR2

Want to work on running more evenly, so worked out a meandering trail loop at Crandalls that comes out to an even 4km. Ran two of them today 20:41, 20:53. Felt good, didn't push too hard wanted to run a couple more but decided that I'd work up to them gradually as I really haven't done a lot of running lately.

Then off to drop my rear wheel off to get rebuilt - broken 6 spokes in the last 6 weeks - time to just rebuild the wheel with new spokes all around.
