Orienteering race 18:32 [5] 2.9 km (6:23 / km) +140m 5:09 / km

Pig French Park Sprint - third despite really spectacularly bad (from posted splits ~1:50 or slightly more) blowup on first control and on the order of 15 seconds lost on eighth control by not aiming off far enough right heading to the ditch through the green.

Orienteering race 18:52 [5] 2.9 km (6:30 / km) +150m 5:10 / km

Pig Burnet Woods sprint - first in a race with easier navigation and what felt, despite only 10 more meters according to the clue sheet, like a lot more climb. Won by enough to take the day overall with some questionable route choices but no major nav errors. Silliest mistake was not going to the trail or road just uphill of 5 to head towards 6 but instead heading off directly through the woods. Not that they weren't really nice woods for the first stretch but I'm sure my route was at least 20 seconds worse. Came close to making a big parallel error on 11 after crossing the road. Headed to the left to get to the go control, not initially certain whether to go around just the first wooded area and through the second or around both of them. Ended up going around both but it looks to me as though it would have been better to have backtracked to the road west of the lake and run along it most of the way - need to be more open to seeing doglegs that make sense while running.


Dan and I went to the Cincinnati Ballet performance downtown in the evening - three pleasant enough pieces, two by the artistic director and one by Balanchine, then a quite good reconstruction of a piece by Leonide Massine, a flat-out terrific piece to music by Shostakovich based on two ethnically divided lovers in Sarajevo during the Balkan conflicts, and a better than feared/actually quite good premiere to Bolero by the artistic director.

Orienteering race 42:33 [4] 5.4 km (7:53 / km) +290m 6:13 / km

Pig Middle - second, with many small to medium sized failures to spike various controls and one massive parallel error (from splits currently posted, at least 3.5 minutes) on 17.

Cycling 31:00 [3]

Commute in loaded with the remainder of my clothes, etc. for the weekend in Indiana and Ohio.

Wednesday Mar 14, 2007 #

Cycling 1:05:00 [3]

Commute in with the first bag of stuff to take to the Pig with me when I head to the airport lashed to my rear rack. Home by way of the Avalon to see Rok Dabla (Year of the Devil), a very bemusing film. With cooler music than I had appreciated just from Dan playing the soundtrack album.

Cycling 58:00 [3]

Work commute.

Running 10:39 [1]


Form exercises 34:05 [4]

Time to revive silly walks, etc. - them, 6x100m strides and two passes of bounding up a gentle slope. Have decided, given the recent and soon to come frequency of sprint races and vetting that I should perhaps hold off on intervals for a bit longer but it does seem time to mix in something besides LSD, DWR and O races.

Monday Mar 12, 2007 #

Cycling 1:07:00 [3]

Work commute in and home by way of the pool.

Swimming 29:00 [3]

Mostly kicking to begin the workout.

Deep Water Running 51:00 [4]

Then deep water running until it was time to head home before 24 started.

Core exercises 8:00 [4]

Abdominal exercises while watching 24.

Strength 2:00 [2]

The hamstring exercises again.

Frozen Slopes Cross Country 6K? No, I need the time to streamer my courses at Bowie.

Cycling 1:50:00 [3]

Greenbelt Metro out to Bowie by way of REI to pick up something I'd ordered and back in dusk then darkness.

Orienteering 4:00:00 [1] ****

Streamering advanced control locations for April 15th meet at Bowie. Just under six hours walking around the terrain, discounted for unavoidable standing still. Beautiful day out, much like Saturday - I hope karmic balance doesn't therefore require Flying Pig to be an unending rain and mudfest.
