Running race 20:21  5.0 km (4:04 / km)
Run for the Young. Nate got out a step ahead of me, but then we settled in together for the first mile, when we caught Megan. I took a couple of tangents to get a few steps on them early in the 2nd mile, and slowly opened a bit of a lead. With about a half to go, I turned around to cheer for Nate a bit, and Megan dropped off the pace. I gave a couple more shouts of encouragement on the way to the finish, and got in 7 seconds ahead of Nate.
Splits: 6:17, 12:49
Not a bad race, considering I've done absolutely no speed training. I hope to get to the track with Nate at the end of the month, after his lax season ends.
Running warm up/down 23:00  2.71 mi (8:29 / mi)
Warmed up a little longer than planned - trying to figure out Zach's 1-mile fun run course (I was following arrows in the road, but they must have been for another race). That was good for me, getting nice and loose and all, but the time pressure was not good - got to the start with only about a minute to spare - no time to grab a drink.
Orienteering race 49:46  *** 3.5 km (14:13 / km)
Long Orange course at the ROC meet at Irondequoit Bay West. Choked on my first local meet of the season, after being out of town for the first 3. I made a 7-minute error on C10 and lost by 2 minutes. There was plenty of climb and my legs were a little heavy from the 5K in the morning, but I was navigating fairly well (well, other than 2 45-60 second mistakes), until I tried to get cute and avoid some climb heading to C10. Got myself turned around, and couldn't relocate until I had run to a stream, and followed a trail a ways to familiar territory. Saw Pavel leaving C11 ahead of me, and he had started after me, so I tried to focus and run hard the rest of the way.
Running warm up/down 5:00  0.59 mi (8:28 / mi)
Just a quick warm-up after working the start / finish for 1.5 hours.
