Orienteering race 13:25 [4] ** 2.2 km (6:06 / km)

Sprint / Course 3 @ North Seatac Park, south side. I read 6 as a stairway, rather than a cliff next to a trail, and ran right on merrily by the control in plain sight five feet off the trail. Even with the misinterpretation I should have recognized when I was in the right place and/or checked my control descriptions.

Still not feeling great healthwise. Lots of junk in throat = not able to respirate myself normally. No Jourdan, Eric, or Peteris to compare with but I'm sure I was not fast today.

Orienteering race 10:45 [4] ** 1.7 km (6:19 / km) +50m 5:31 / km

Sprint / Course 2.
1 PM

Orienteering race 11:02 [4] ** 2.2 km (5:01 / km) +15m 4:51 / km

Relay, Loop B. Paired up with Patrick to reprise Team Kanzaga from two years ago. We were victorious (chalk up another to the good for Black Magic). It didn't feel like a relay to me, since Patrick brought us home from the first leg in the lead, so I ran both legs all alone.

Orienteering race 10:19 [4] ** 2.1 km (4:55 / km) +20m 4:41 / km

Relay, Loop A. Started feeling pretty fatigued in the mid-80s heat by the end of this one.

North Seatac is really an underrated venue, especially for sprinting. The disc golf course in the north part has thinned the woods into an intricate mix of rough open, white, and various shades of green, while the south part, though thicker, has quite a few windy trails running throughout which make for good route choice.

Running 42:05 [3] 5.46 mi (7:42 / mi) +100m 7:18 / mi

Bridle Trails test run! My foot only hurt a tiny bit near the end. Legs very foggy, but became less slumberous as I went. Also still recovering from a cold. 15s time loss due to the eating of one salmonberry that caught my eye.

Attention, loyal readers - if you're from out of town and you're considering attending the Seattle Adventure Running Tournament, I'm offering a full complimentary accommodation and transportation package to a chosen few who pass my rigorous screening process.

Finally, wading through the constant drivel on my log pays off for you. You should be proud!

Some sharp pain in my left arch popped up yesterday; it's still there today. Guess I won't be training much this week. No pain in the heel or ball of the foot.

This is not the first time this has happened. I suspect the dress shoes I wore most of Saturday are the culprit.
