running (trails) 37:06 [2] 4.34 km (8:33 / km) +110m 7:35 / km
shoes: Inov-8 Oroc 350

Townsend SF west, In The Dark. Had to stop by the house in Townsend, so I went up to run where I had originally planned on running yesterday. This was more like "running next to trails", because a lot of the trails were creeks. I went out to the big crucifix and took a closer look than I had before; there's writing in weld bead on it that says "4 MY MOM DCK", so I guess that says something about its origin. I had remembered that there was an exit out the south side of that clearing, but I remembered wrong, because it would have been out the NW side. No matter, I went south, didn't find the trail that wasn't there, and just contoured my way out (going through a little green in the process.).

Found one tick crawling on my hand while driving home, and two more on my pants when I took them off.

running (trails) 42:30 [3] 5.64 km (7:32 / km) +73m 7:05 / km
shoes: Inov-8 Oroc 350

Beaver Brook, just ahead of The Dim. I had an errand to run up in Hollis, so this seemed like a reasonable place to go for a change of scenery. Brought a headlamp, but didn't need it, and a map, which I used just a little bit. Water was definitely flowing after yesterday's rain, but I've seen far worse. Only got my feet damp at the very end. GPS track is none too impressive, considering that there was a bit where I ran the same trail in both directions. (OSM/OTM have the trails in reasonably accurately.)

Note

Nope. Nothing. But I was sure glad I wasn't outside running a marathon in what I consider to be nightmare weather. My driveway had about 2" of sleet when I went out in the morning (enough to keep the garage dooor from opening, even with me pushing), and even with the rain all day, it was mostly still there when I got home.

orienteering race 1:06:41 [3] 6.98 km (9:33 / km) +165m 8:33 / km
shoes: Nike Initiator

Gay City, Red, 5.9 km, 215 m, 5th. Anticipating nasty weather (which maybe never really came), I ran early by special arrangement with the meet crew, starting a bit before 9 AM. While getting ready, I was unable to locate my orienteering shoes, though I specifically remembered getting them out and putting them by the door with the rest of my stuff when I was preparing to leave home yesterday morning (and they were still right there when I got home). So the best choice was the retired running shoes that I wear when hang gliding, and in this terrain, they were fine.

Chilly to start, but very nice temperature once I got rolling (LS poly shirt and an O top). No big mistakes, but several small ones. Went around the hill from the start intead of just going straight, had to stop and figure out what was going on when I got near #3, the approach to #5 was probably a little slow, pretty far wide to the left on #6 (but I knew I was doing that), a couple other hesitations, and my route to the finish could have been faster. We'll see if any of those show up as errors on SA. (Answer: #3 and #6 were time losses, plus a hesitation on #12.)

This is a wonderful park with a fine map, and it's a pretty fun place to run when the visibility is so good. And a nice enjoyable course, thanks, Bill and Charlie!

Note

Not exactly training, but I spent a sunny 60+ degree day outdoors on my feet, and walked or jogged the length of the field several times, sometimes carrying stuff. This was a hang gliding deal, more training with the hydraulic winch. I had three short tows in the morning, then one spectacular one in the afternoon that was so awesome that nobody else wanted to fly afterwards.

Tomorrow has the potential to be some serious HTFU training.
