Running 29:56 [2] 4.3 km (6:58 / km) +50m 6:35 / km
shoes: R-NB Grey Shoes

With Angelica around the neighborhood. Rather slow as she felt bad and started walking after about 10 minutes (no coffee filters this AM.. ) Oh well.

Good news is that the sore R-achilles I got during the Red course yesterday seems, even more clearly, to just be a bruise - didn't affect the run much.

Running warm up/down 10:00 [2] 1.0 mi (10:00 / mi)
shoes: O-VJ-Grey-Spikes

Gotta get out the door quicker on these O'mornings, or the warmup time is compromised.

Orienteering race 16:30 [4] 2.8 km (5:54 / km) +50m 5:25 / km
ahr:170 shoes: O-VJ-Grey-Spikes

Sprint, kind of as a warmup, before Red. Really sloppy on the first one - decided to shortcut through some green and I couldn't handle the navigation - around on trails would've been much faster due to less nav. time.

Orienteering race 1:07:30 [4] 12.24 km (5:31 / km) +200m 5:06 / km
ahr:163 max:181 shoes: O-VJ-Grey-Spikes

Red @ Tyler. Same time as Vadim, 4 minutes behind Clem. I had a 1-2 minute error (poor forking choice), a 1 minute route choice error (2nd fastest on the leg, but Clem whipped us all by going through a bunch of yellow with vertical-slash-green.) Plus a 2x 30 second nav. issues. Clem appeared to have beaten me mostly by being much cleaner (say ~1 minute vs 4 minutes of errors?), and a bit by hammering by me (he gained, and passed on a fork) after starting ~3 minutes behind me. I did do the Sprint before Red, and he did the Sprint after Red, which may have affected both of us (I beat him on the Sprint despite a 30 second error...)

Mild sore throat almost completely better.

Running 36:00 [2] 6.0 mi (6:00 / mi) +60m 5:49 / mi
ahr:135 shoes: R-NB Grey Shoes

VF Fatlands. Taking it a bit easy (length-wise) due to mild sore throat continuing...

Running warm up/down 48:00 [2] 8.0 km (6:00 / km) +80m 5:43 / km
ahr:135 shoes: R-NB Grey Shoes

Long warmup, intra & cooldown. Dropped a Fedex off... (mortgage papers)

Running intervals (Track) 5:12 [5] 1.5 km (3:28 / km)
max:179 shoes: R-NB Grey Shoes

800 - 2:56
400 - 1:23
200 - 0:37
100 - 0:16

Still have a mild sore throat, so my intervals are less than original plan (6x800 was scheduled). Chose the short ones because I'm curious if I should be doing a few more of those to build up some basic speed. I almost got beat by Sam in the chute at the TT Sprint...

Running long 2:24:55 [2] 25.76 km (5:38 / km) +200m 5:25 / km
ahr:131 max:144 shoes: R-NB Grey Shoes

Good news - wildlife : Saw a 2-foot long turtle in the Schuykill canal, plus baby ducks & geese, and even a water snake swimming happily along the surface. Plus a big fish (2-3-footer) in the Schuykill, and even a bunny.

And found a new trail - didn't know there was a river trail on the west side of the Schuykill in Phoenixville (all the way from 29 to 113), which makes a nice loop with the trail on the other side. Combine this with the canal section southeast of 29, and this big set of trails _almost_ connects into the Perkiomen trail & Valley Forge park. And it's not like there's a lot physically intervening. I wonder why this isn't hooked up yet.

Lots of poison ivy out too - wrapping trees, sticking out into the trail in places. Inspiring a good shower (no damage yet.)

Physically one of the worst runs in a long time. Had a mild sore throat when I woke up, stomach wasn't really ready for the run - perhaps related to the sore throat, or 1 hr. from breakfast to run. Stomach got worse and better with some water at :40, then looped by car for Gatorade at :58, and it only got worse after that. Felt majorly over-full (like the TT Sprint, but worse) and it didn't improve. At 2:00, and 5k from the car, it was so bad I had to walk, and tried to puke just to relieve the pressure, but to no avial... Ran of/off the last 5k back to the car. Stomach settle slowly over next 2 hours and all seemed well after that. Odd.

VF Goat I rerun. A bit warm (70, mildly humid, sunny). A bit slower than last month. Lots of baby stiltgrass.
