running (Trail) 47:00 [3] 4.8 mi (9:47 / mi) +45m 9:31 / mi

CBRC run at St. Mary's City. In honor of groundhogs day, Perry said he'd reused some of the mile markers. By about 10 minutes in, I'd passed at least 3 "mile 2" signs. I do appreciate a quirky sense of humor. Around the 14 minute mark, I realized I was over dressed, but I'd shown up late and without much time to warm up, so not much I could do at that point. Tried to clear my sinuses, but mostly just succeeded in blowing snot all over my face, and was glad that the etiquette police (aka Katherine) wasn't there to yell "not wipe nose on sleeve, mommy!" at me.
Heard someone fall behind me at mile 3, and ran back to check on him. He was fine, but there was a fair bit of swearing, which didn't seem to help his performance in this case. I assume its because he didn't apologize to the "ladies" for his language. Lots of ice and ankle -crunching frozen mud out there today, not to mention the downed trees from our latest storm, glad I opted for my studded o-shoes.

running 15:00 [2] 1.2 mi (12:30 / mi)

Cool down lap.

swimming 44:00 intensity: (15:00 @1) + (20:00 @3) + (9:00 @4)

Warm-up and some kicking drills, then 7x100 on 2:00. First 6 100s were between 1:22 and 1:24, then the last was 1:28. Running out of time by then, anyway, so did an easy 100 cool down. Focus today was trying to keep my head down and turns smooth.

biking 40:00 [3]

strength/core 15:00 [2]


Fell a little short on training targets for swimming, running, and biking for January, but hit my goals for strength and overall. Stayed (mostly) healthy, though, which helped! And I'm in a good spot for base fitness as I start a dedicated tri training plan. February will be a tough month, with a couple work trips planned, though, so need to stay focused and protect my workout schedule from work "emergencies".

biking (Stationary trainer) 50:00 [3] 13.6 mi (3:41 / mi)

Managed to escape work at a reasonable time, but Jeremy had work this evening, and our furnace is on the fritz, so I needed to get home and meet with the repair man, so no swim team this evening. Still, had time to get to the gym, so not bad. Colder than I wanted to brave outside, though, so back to the stationary trainer and treadmill for me.

running 23:00 [2] 2.6 mi (8:51 / mi)

swimming 1:30:00 [2]

Had a long, but fun, flight in a 60 today (DC low level out to Harpers Ferry, down the Shenandoah, then east over Monticello and Charlottesville toward home), so by the time I got to swim practice, I was cold and tired with a bit of a headache. Struggled through the warm-up, then it was time for the timed mile. 29:23, which was a couple minutes slower than I was expecting, but oh well. At least it gives me a good idea where I'm at, and we'll see how much I improve over the next few months. Did some kicking drills and a cool down afterwards.

running 10:00 [2] 1.0 mi (10:00 / mi)

Warm-up and strides to get the blood flowing after the log drive up.
12 PM

orienteering 56:49 [3] 5.01 km (11:20 / km)

Feeling pretty good today, legs felt surprisingly peppy despite the long drive up. A little slow and cautious to 1, and some hesitation on the way to #3. Then the wheels came off a bit on the way to 4, as I faffed about thinking that somehow because the trails weren't on the map (a fact that I was well aware of), my control must surely be on *this* side of the trail in front of me. When I realized what I was doing, I had a moment of very unladylike swearing, and whaddya know, I got my shit together and found the control! Pretty smooth the rest of the course, if not particularly fast. Saw Peggy on the way to the last control, so picked up the pace a bit. Nice to be out orienteering again, the weather and government shutdown haven't been kind to the o schedule this winter.
