Orienteering race (cycling) 2:36:33  ** 25.67 mi (6:06 / mi) +625m 5:40 / mi
Alki Street Scramble, or, "Zen and the Art of Elbow Steering."
Cleared the course well under the time limit, and finished just 3-4 minutes ahead of Chris Loeffler, a strong cyclist with a nicer bike than mine who I thought might get me. We took quite different routes, which was illustrative of the fact that there were few obvious CP strings.
Time to start training again, after a full five days of recovery/laziness following the Canadian O-vacation of eight races in nine days. My tentative plan for the next week:
Sun: 10-mile tempo
Mon: Bike commute
Tues: Track intervals
Wed: O' sprint (LB or NU) + strength
Thurs: Bike commute
Fri: Trail/hill intervals
Sat: O' race (NSCC) + strength
Sun: Trail 5-mile tempo w/map
