Orienteering race 1:08:56 [3] 5.88 mi (11:43 / mi) +362ft 11:05 / mi
slept:6.0 shoes: Salomon Speedcross (2017-Navy)

Red classic-distance course at Elk Creek in Middletown, OH.

I feel like this was my cleanest race of the weekend -- although the navigation was pretty easy (Orange-ish). Looking at my tracks, I left #2 in a weird direction and I overshot #9 a bit. Also, the trail to #17 looked good on paper, but it was VERY muddy and slippery -- slow going, and it probably would've been better to just run along the paved path & open yellow area east of it, since the control was close to the vegetation boundary.

Very cold at the start (I wore my windbreaker on the course and of course regretted it after just a few minutes), but otherwise a pretty, sunny, fun day.


8 PM

Administration 1:30:00 [0]

More RMOC admin work on the s-l-o-w hotel computer: email follow-ups related to RMOC / LROC national event and special training requests (CSU ROTC and a "special forces" group...).

Orienteering race (Red Middle) 1:03:21 [3] 3.29 mi (19:15 / mi) +564ft 16:34 / mi
slept:8.0 shoes: Salomon Speedcross (2017-Navy)

Red middle-distance course at Pyramid Hill Sculpture Park in Hamilton, OH.

Lost time at #1 (headed into the woods too soon; slowed way down before I got totally lost), #3 (very tentative on the steep embankment at stream crossing and then fighting through thick woods; I should have headed to the yellow area sooner), and #4 (bizarre brain failure on the easy / obvious route choice). Small errors leaving #9 & #12 in a dumb / inefficient direction. Got very disoriented and stood still for a while on my way to #14 (it took me a minute to realize the Stonehenge-like sculptures were mapped as boulders rather than black X's like all the other sculptures -- although I guess that makes sense).

Cold & overcast but pleasant enough once running -- it didn't start to rain / snow until I was back at my hotel. Going through all the sculpture areas as part of the course was fun.

I didn't eat much yesterday or today, so dinner ended up being PF Chang's takeout (kung pao shrimp) since I had a gift card to use, TWO beers (local Mad Tree k├Âlsch, which tasted GREAT with the spicy food), chile-lime kettle chips, and a few spoonfuls of Brown Butter Bourbon Truffle ice cream from Kroger (luckily it didn't taste nearly as good as the name led me to believe, and it didn't stay frozen in the hotel room fridge, so I didn't eat much of it).


10 PM

Administration 2:00:00 [0]

I dragged my laptop AND a portable monitor to Cincinnati, with the intent of working for a half day this morning (to preserve some vacation time) and then doing lots of long-overdue RMOC catch-up work over the weekend. But then my laptop crashed / failed this morning ("corrupt boot sector"). $%&@(%^~!!! So I got a bare minimum of RMOC stuff done on the crappy, locked-down hotel computer.

- Added new member details to database & sent out email confirmations.

- Sent out membership expiration reminders for March & April.

- Miscellaneous email replies.

- Set up meet details & pre-registration for Chatfield meet; added new driving directions.

- Sent out email reminder for Chatfield meet.

slept:7.0 weight:113.9lbs shoes: Brooks Adrenaline (2017)

My training plan assignment was "easy four miles" -- but that was written when I was planning to race on Sunday (rather than Friday, Saturday AND Sunday), and I still need to pack and get to the airport this afternoon...

So I just did an easy loop out to Daughenbaugh and back.

slept:8.0 weight:114.6lbs shoes: Brooks Adrenaline (2017)

Easy neighborhood run -- up to and around Harper Lake, and then back the same way.

I had planned to just walk today...but I went back for seconds of everything at my friend's Easter brunch this morning (monkey bread, cheesy hash brown casserole, mini-muffins, etc.) after also eating like crap yesterday (cinnamon roll, pizza, beer, large dinner, lots of leftover muffin / cupcake batter, etc.), so I was feeling extra "blah".
