Orienteering race 12:30:00 [2] *** 32.9 km (22:48 / km)
spiked:14/19c slept:7.0

North American Rogaine Championships with Nate at Allegany State Park. We estimated we could cover 33km (straight-line distance) in 12 hours, so we came up with a course that covered that distance, and allowed us to have 5 "easy" controls at the end, since we would be coming in during the dark. We took the long way around to our first control, for a safe start, and to get used to the scale. It was the first of several controls that we hit directly. Then we hit 311 - lost at least 20 minutes around the control, even though we thought we had attacked from a solid location. Finally found it, but, as was later confirmed, it was not in the correct location. Next few controls went real well, but we lost some accuracy in the late afternoon - but just lost a few minutes at a few controls. When the sun went down, we regained our touch (more careful compass work and pace counting to counteract the darkness helped, plus the fact that we had saved 3 good night controls).

We wound up coming back only 30 minutes later than our original plan, having picked up all 19 controls and 1000 points. We were pretty wiped during the walk back, and decided we would limit ourselves to 3 hours on Sunday, but we were quite happy with the Saturday performance.

Running 1:06:56 [3] 8.83 mi (7:35 / mi)

GTA with Scott, Frank, Erik, JV, DV, Vinnie. Plan was for 40 minutes, tops, with the Rogaine coming up this weekend. I figured I'd hang with the pack for 20 minutes, then come back easy. Well, after 20 minutes we were crossing Landing Rd on Penfield Rd, so we were headed for Ellison Park - couldn't pass that up. Had to make a stop in Ellison Park, which allowed me to take it easy afterwards (averaged about 7:15 pace to the park, closer to 8:00 alone on the way back).

Legs a little worn out from the run, so I'll probably take tomorrow completely off (was going to swim) and rest up for the weekend. Nate and I still have stuff to buy and find to be ready to leave tomorrow night.

Running 29:38 [3] 4.0 mi (7:25 / mi)

Easy run East-Culver-Park - not quite a 3 effort, but yesterday was much more than 3.

Running 49:00 [3] 6.84 mi (7:10 / mi)
rhr:41 slept:7.0 weight:167lbs

Ran into Howie as I was leaving a meeting at noon, and he was headed over to run, so I ran with him. We went up the river to Elmwood and back the other side. I tried to avoid slowing him down as much as possible, but was actually able to talk while we ran. Here is the route.

Swimming 38:32 [3] 1.02 mi (37:46 / mi)
rhr:40 slept:6.5 weight:167lbs

Hadn't been in the pool in 3 weeks, and I could sure tell - it was a sluggish struggle to get thru the workout.

Orienteering 1:42:04 [3] *** 9.0 km (11:20 / km)
spiked:11/13c slept:7.5

Ran the 2006 permanent course at Chestnut Ridge between Chelsea's basketball games at Canisius College. Had time to grab 13 controls. Never did spot one marker, even though I was standing on the boulder that was the mapped feature.
