Road running 34:00 [3] 3.8 mi (8:57 / mi)
shoes: Adrenaline 14-2nd

Another trip around the regular neighborhood loop. At least I think that's what I did. The problem is I have absolutely no memory of the middle section of it. I remember running up the hill towards the stairs, and wondering whether there was going to be ice on the path by the tennis courts, but no memory of climbing the stairs, or going by the tennis courts, or the condition of the path, or passing the playground equipment, or where I went after that. Coming back down the hill and turning left on Fernwood is the next memory I have. Probably 10 minutes are missing.

I know this has happened before, in road races. It's a nifty trick, helps the miles go by and probably delivers more oxygen to the legs, since it's not going to the brain. But I can report from personal experience that temporary amnesia during an orienteering race is not helpful at all.
