shoes: Inov-8 Oroc 350

The plan was to go for a shortish run at Rattlesnake Hill, butwhen I got there I realized that I had neglected to bring a shirt. I guess I could have run without one, but I decided to just go home and run across the street, and go a bit farther. I also decided that when I got the junction at the top of the hill, I'd do Shorter if I was already over 30 minutes, and Longer if not. The watch said 29:17, so I kept going, but there was a recently blazed trail to the right before I got to the Friendly Trail, so I took that, and it ran roughly parallel and joined back up at Hickory Woods. A bunch of newly fallen trees here and there, as usual. Taking the next two days off to rest up.

running (trails) 56:23 [3] 6.97 km (8:05 / km) +136m 7:22 / km
shoes: Inov-8 Oroc 350

WBSW, exactly the same loop as a week ago. Considerably wetter today, and I managed to be a couple of minutes faster. Curiously, the watch also says that this run was 300 meters shorter. I don't remember which watch I used last week, but this one was the Garmin 10, and I think it just doesn't capture tight turns as well as the 405. Neither one does a very good job, to be honest. I punched a split on both runs at the same place. That spot is just after a set of tight switchbacks, and before another set. Neither watch really shows them at all. So the actual distance is probably somewhat more than either track shows, though not a whole lot more, because most of the loop isn't twisty.

After writing all that, I realized that about 2/3 of the discrepancy in both distance and time was because last week I ran from the car to the trailhead, then back to the car to check something. But the watches still don't show the switchbacks. And I also just realized that the high point on this trail loop is also Rattlesnake Hill (not to be confused with the place in Bolton near my office).

Note

I have examined the registration list for M-21-Elite at the Team Trials this coming weekend, with an eye toward my chances, and I sincerely think that this could be the year.

A piece of the Midstate with Nancy, with a car shuttle. No Active Ankle, but I didn't twist it, either, so no problem.

orienteering race 1:25:02 [2] *** 8.21 km (10:22 / km) +107m 9:44 / km
spiked:10/13c shoes: Icebug Spirit

Bear Brook, Blue, 6.8 km, 185m. Rainy day, and I was apparently out in the worst of it, though I seem to have been oblivious -- a few people commented on how it was really pouring for a while, but I didn't really notice, maybe I was under evergreens during the deluge? Not moving very fast, but navigating tolerably. A little sloppy on #1, overran it by a bit. #2-#4 went fine, though the GPS track shows something weird on the way to #4 that doesn't make sense. I neglected to lock the bezel on my watch, and it got into the wrong mode so it didn't record splits for #3-#5. No real issues on #5-#7. On #8 I went too far on the trail, and was too lazy to figure out exactly where I was, so I just charged off into the wilderness and planned to figure it out later. Before long I had no idea where I was, spotted a hunter's stand that I couldn't find on the map, and was just going to head vaguely NE and hope I could find the marsh, but then the area I was looking at seemed familiar, I recognized it as the area west of #8, so I headed east and stumbled right into it. #9 was fine, on #10 I tried to get as close as I could on trails and attacked from directly south. The medium green was really not too bad, but the light green to white was all chest high white pines and I couldn't see a thing. Fortunately I happened into the depression on the SE edge of the circle. #11 was fine, #12 I took the northen trail route, but had trouble seeing the contours when I headed into the green woods, so although I was heading for the control, I got sidetracked up a reentrant where I stopped and made sense of things. No trouble on #13 or the finish.

Very weird thing: on my way to #2, I spotted a guy out in the woods, probably 50-100 meters from the road, not near any trail. And he was raking. I had to wonder if was Finnish, and I considered stopping to ask, "Hey, are you on Trump's forest fire prevention squad?". I have a suspicion of what else he might have been up to, but I'll leave it out there in case anyone else has any ideas.
