Orienteering race 1:18:24 [4] 6.0 mi (13:04 / mi) +200m 11:50 / mi
shoes: Icebug olx 2nd

Whoa, orienteering is hard! I had no idea where I was all the way to 1, finally continuing on to the trail and going the wrong way at first, coming back and attacking from the little square bunker by the creek. Then a good stretch (a little slower, out of respect for the terrain) to a clumsy mistake on 9. Another good stretch all the way to the end, but couldn't find the finish control at all. Ran by it twice, only saw it on the third pass because someone else was punching. The only consolation, and it's not much of one, is that about 30 other people lost even more time than I did. Oh, and it was a great day to be in the woods, turning sunny and warm after the early rain.

Road running race 14:32 [5] 2.0 mi (7:16 / mi)
shoes: Adrenaline 14

The 80th running of the NASA Intracenter Run. The 10k was last week, 2-mile today. Originally scheduled for 2 weeks ago, but postponed due to rain. Rain again today, coming down hard the whole race. It looked like about 150 runners, despite the weather. The road surface was a little slippery, but the temperature was around 60 and felt fine.

Not a great time, actually my worst ever (that's a recurring theme these days) but it felt like a good effort. Perfectly even splits at 7:16. Seeing that split at the first mile kind of sapped my motivation a bit, although I'm sure beating 14:30 will become an important goal in the future.

In the spring of 2013 I ran this in 13:56. I think that's going to stand as my best time for over 60.

Road running 30:00 [3] 2.0 mi (15:00 / mi)
