Running 25:00 [3] 2.2 km (11:22 / km) +29m 10:40 / km
ahr:125 max:153

First workout since SLOC's meet, and everything hurt. A HR of 140 felt hard, and my strides were short and stiff. I tried a few times to lengthen my stride, but it felt bad. It was better towards the end, and pretty the whole way---a running path on a peninsula on a lake with autumn leaves and golden hour sunset.

Interesting---another messed up GPS track. I started in the parking lot, and let the Garmin find satellites while I changed. Weird. It did this same thing on my model map track.

SLOC Corn Maze

SLOC US Night-O Champs Red

I think it's funny how smooth my Corn Maze track is, compared to anyone who is fast. It's like my speed puts me below the Nyquist, and them above it. I hope that's not backwards.

I started my GPS late on the Night-O. I must have missed 1 by complete negligence---I must have forgotten to look left. I was *so* sure I was in the right spot going into 2. I crossed 2 reentrants going down to the stream, and I saw the other two on the map (the two I was apparently in), and I remember checking the angles and saying, "Nope, I'm where I want to be---in the right-hand reentrants." Wow. Embarrassing.

I'm not sure anyone else considered this, but between 11 and 12, I guessed the little pond would have a dry ring with zero fight, and I actually used it, but the GPS doesnt show it very well. I did get two half-muddy shoes.

Orienteering 42:39 intensity: (11 @1) + (1:06 @2) + (14 @3) + (32:44 @4) + (8:24 @5) 4.31 km (9:54 / km) +8m 9:48 / km

US Relay Champs. Leg 1 for 8-pt team HaHaHa.

I basically had three goals on the relay.

1. Don't let the team down.
2. Be less than 2 times the winning time
3. Push really hard.

I think I succeeded for all three.

My first Orange leg was a little faster than the 2nd leg runner who also ran Orange, showing the math we did for min/km was accurate and that I was the correct choice for leg one. The winning time was a little over 24 minutes, and I was about 41 and change (1000am start was a little late, and I started my GPS early and stopped it late, after tagging.). Finally, my Avg HR was 161 with a max of 185 during the run in. I'm pretty confident I couldn't have done much better.

The best part of the day for me was the run-in, where people were yelling, and I found some speed I didn't think I had. If I knew my HR was just 185, I would've dug a little deeper. I might have passed out, though. I guess I'm happy with the run-in.

I lost a few seconds at 2 when I checked my clue sheet---65---and saw 67 on the stand. After a few seconds I realized 65 was control 1, and 2 *was* 67. Then another 15 seconds at 6 when I got to a clearing and saw no control. I checked the angle of the shoreline and realized I was too far south, hopped down to the shore and ran along it to the control. And 60 seconds at 7 when I missed left and had to loop back (verified by GPS---I guessed 30---Crap).

A really fun event.
