Orienteering race 3:16:13 [3] 26.1 km (7:31 / km)

Highlander - longer writeup in a bit.

Orienteering 40:00 [4] 5.2 km (7:42 / km)

Relay exercise on Pole Brook mountain. Comedy of errors stuff, including trying to skip the first two controls on the third loop and not noticing until I'd run about 500m towards the last control of the loop. It could only go up from there.

Orienteering 2:00:00 [1] ****

Round trip from parking out to pick up the controls and stands from the 2003 US Team Trials middle distance race. Did the course in order, very slowly due to the accumulating burden of stands. Loved the course even at very low speed (though I don't think it was quite difficult enough to be hard at less than competition speed) and think it was a useful reminder of what must be done to spike controls in Harriman.

Orienteering 36:23 [4] 4.7 km (7:44 / km) +135m 6:46 / km

WOC93 men's short final rerun - two hours of control pickup was good technical preparation but less than ideal physical preparation so I had good flow through this course but at somewhat less than normal competition speed given the runnability. Still, happy with this other than the awful fall backwards into a prickly bush and the log within in lying in wait to bash the upper part of my right hip that I did inside the circle attacking the penultimate control. That resulted in a fair bit of soreness and stiffness overnight, though only slight worries about functional impairment the next day, and in a quite impressively colourful bruise about half the size of the palm of my hand.

Cycling 29:00 [3]

Cycling to work.

Running 1:50:00 [2]

Run home through Rock Creek Park. Saw many deer and a couple of racoons and, most unprecedentedly, a group of 8 or 9 other night runners on the roughest section of the Valley Trail. Some running club deviating from their usual routine, I suppose.

Having used it a few times now, I've decided my new Osprey Talon 22 is a great running backpack. Not so great that it isn't a good idea to make sure the part of the pack that rests on the top of my hips is full of clothing rather than anything graced with a rigid edge but still quite great.
