Running 1:23:39 [2] 10.0 mi (8:22 / mi) +2m 8:22 / mi

Interesting run from the Knecht Cup in Cherry Hill, NJ, where Chelsea was rowing. I ran west along the race course, then continued west into Camden. Didn't seem so bad at first, then it looked a little more sketchy, but I saw a "9th St" and wanted to see if 1st St would be near the river or something, so I continued on. Between 3rd and 4th I came upon a couple of guys and as I approached I could hear one saying "F'n kill the SOB". I was hoping that wasn't about me!

I turned around (there was no 1st St, of course, the road ended at abandoned factories and stuff), and crossed the street. I didn't catch what the guy said when I went by again, but it was something about "white boy". A few blocks later a guy commented that I was "jogging around like it was Cherry Hill".

Probably won't be repeating that route!

Chelsea rowed well. She had gotten bumped to the second boat with the return of two rowers (I think one injury and one had been missing weight), but they were only about 15 seconds behind the first boat, despite the fact that 4 from Chelsea's 8 had raced in a 4 in the morning.

Had planned on squeezing in a run at Blue Mountain, while dropping Zach and Luke off for the O-Camp, but Janet arrived early, so Chris and I decided to try to beat some of the NYC Friday PM traffic instead. Fail, but still managed to meet Chelsea at Wegman's in Cherry Hill, where the team went for dinner...

Some 9.5 hours of driving today, thanks to the delays.

Hashing 1:00:00 [2] 5.0 mi (12:00 / mi)

RH3 from Lyell Ave. A very unreasonable and angry innkeeper called ro-po on one of his customers. Sad.

Forgot to record my injured eye. I got poked during one of the races on the weekend. Noticed some soreness on Monday, but didn't really think about it until Chris asked if there was something wrong with my eye that night, and we saw some significant redness below and right of the pupil.

It seems to be improving, albeit slowly.
5 PM

Running 30:00 [2] 3.45 mi (8:42 / mi)

Easy run after the team's workout. They did the 5 x 700m thing today, and did it nicely, for the most part. I ran on the bike path to Gravel and back via Regina / Daventry / etc.

Legs were quite heavy, presumably from yesterday and the weekend.

5 PM

Running 1:00:00 intensity: (42:00 @2) + (18:00 @3) 6.67 mi (9:00 / mi)

Legs still felt quite sore from the weekend, so felt it was wise to not do the Strength intervals this week. Unable to get out at lunch, so went to Mendon Ponds after work. Didn't want to completely wuss out, so I decided "terrain surges" were the order of the day. Parked at the second entrance and ran 15 min easy, then did 5 x 3 min surges, stepping off the trails to do so, with an easy 3 min, mostly on trails in between. Then did one last 3 min surge on trails to make it an even 6.

12 min w/dn back to the car included removing shoes and socks to walk thru the underwater muck to get to the gap between the ponds. At the gap there was another long puddle, but without as much muck, so I left the shoes on and kept one dry with a step-hop-step x 2 combo.

5 PM

Running 34:11 [2] 4.05 mi (8:26 / mi)

Easy run after the guys did their workout (4x200R, 4x1000T, 4x200R, with 3 200s for some and 900s and 800s for some).

Short loop, past the old house on Joylene.

Not counting the sprints I had to do to visit the 3 groups and time 200s.

10 AM

Orienteering race 53:26 [4] 4.7 km (11:22 / km) +160m 9:43 / km

Flying Pig - Middle Distance at Hueston Woods

Saved my worst performance for the last day (and my birthday). Overran the first control and completely blew the second control, by being distracted when deciding how to leave the trail. Not sure how I wound up where I did, but it was not even close. I only found the control when I decided to bail toward the road and figured out that the steep banks I had been thru were not the even steeper banks that I came across, that were what I saw on the map.

Blowing the second control that badly really takes the wind out of the sails, and the legs were already heavy from yesterday.

The only highlight was that Sergey Velichko popped out onto the road behind me after C12 and I held him off for awhile down the trail, but he gapped me and put a minute on me from there to the finish, even though I was running fairly well, I thought, and only had very small bobbles near a couple of controls.

Running warm up/down 8:00 [2] 0.89 mi (9:00 / mi)

Miminal w/up - mostly back from Luke's start and off to my own start.
