Orienteering race (Ward Pound Ridge) 1:09:31 [4] 5.7 km (12:12 / km)
shoes: Integrators

Really nice day, warm, sunny, but not too hot or humid.

Had a pretty clean shuffle going until the approach to 9. Followed the trail to the bend, over the knoll (hmm, rather greener than mapped), past the small lake (hmm, looks more like a marsh), and up the other side to the control, hey I can see it from here. Punch, and check the code, and that's strange it's off by one number. Wow, the organizers must have printed the codes wrong, I wonder if I should report it, er, um, wait a second ... I appear to be standing at my #6 ... oh crap, oh crap ,crap, crap. Dang.

So threw away 5 minutes on a easy easy leg. Fortunately for me that just means finishing 20 minutes behind instead of 15. No biggie. Besides I still finished ahead of Clint, and Phil, so giggles.

Fun day. Legs/body suitably trashed. Now need to recover by Monday eve for the corn.

Jogging race (Holyoke 5K) 27:17 [4] 5.0 km (5:27 / km)
shoes: Pro Grid 7

Fresh cool early fall air, oh the joy!
Add a rare good legs day to boot.
So all in all a really enjoyable "run".
And I haven't felt that way for at least a year. Only down side is it might have come two days early...

Orienteering race (Town Forest Park) 1:15:01 [4] 7.0 km (10:43 / km)
shoes: Integrators

Just before heading out the door, the skies opened up in torrents. Decided a wee delay was prudent, so 180'd and put the coffee on.

Club event on a new map by George. Really fine outing, and great visits with many after at the finish.

Used the progressives. OK reading the map, but I can't see the map and see the ground at the same time. So no reading on the run for me. In fact its just really hard to see the ground at all. But just one ankle turn, and one face plant, so cautiously optimistic.

Found em all, no orienteering troubles, but the navigation was simple. Otherwise just very slow. Legs are trashed, and left foot cramped badly on the drive home. In other words, a very fine day.
