Running warm up/down (Warm-up) 10:00 [2] 2.15 km (4:39 / km)

In East Fork State Park east of Cincinnati, OH. Warm-up from the Flying Pig HQ area to the start and a little more including some strides.

Orienteering race (Classic) 1:04:50 [4] *** 8.1 km (8:00 / km) +280m 6:49 / km

Flying Pig IX in East Fork State Park east of Cincinnati, OH. It was a much nicer sunny day than the first two. I started off okay but made a poor route choice and fumbled the attack to #4. This helped Mike Eglinski make-up two minutes from the start to catch me. We traded leads and took some slightly different routes a few times but more often than not, Mike led me around keeping me from making mistakes. I thought the navigation was easier today than the previous day. I'd try to get ahead of Mike by out-running him on the flats and roads but whenever I paused to read he'd pass and I'd have to chase again. Mike also seemed to get around the gullies better than I--it didn't matter if I was going more direct or contouring around more. Mike mentioned navigating conservatively. With me not being in as good a shape as last year I was definately not running not much faster than Mike. At the end, Stanislav and David Knight were in the chase too. It was fun and a precursor to the Billy Goat but it would have been better to have more of a gap between Mike's and my own start. I probably would have been a little slower for navigation but I think even the close racing was a push for both of us. See the Split List.

Running warm up/down (Warm-up) 17:18 [2] 2.93 mi (5:54 / mi)

In East Fork State Park, OH on the Turkey Ridge map for the Flying Pig US Short Course Championships. The warm-up was odd in that it passed the finish and Go control en-route. Raining, windy and cold, the almost 3K really helped in getting me ready to get on the course.

Orienteering race (Short Course) 46:14 [4] *** 4.4 km (10:30 / km) +220m 8:24 / km

Flying Pig US Short Course Championships. In East Fork State Park, OH on the Turkey Ridge map. I had an early start. Temperatures were about 40F. A steady light rain came down and it started getting windy. It had rained all night so the course was sloppy wet. It made the usual steep and slippery Ohio hillsides worse but I felt comfortable running. I didn't plan routes very well and didn't see the best options. This got me caught-up in bad thorns on leg 6 and I left 7 confusing the short leg with the short leg from 8 to 9. See the Split List.

Running warm up/down (Warm-up) 10:00 [2] 1.0 mi (10:00 / mi)

In Loveland, OH. At Camp Friedlander for the Flying Pig Sprint. After flying back to BWI going home to sleep a little. We got up late missing our flight 6:45 flight to Ohio. Our alternate flight got us to the meet with plenty of time. I had to wait around for everyone else to run. It was entertaining but I thought it odd seeing so many of the others running the course. I knew the location of the last 2 controls. I tried not to listen to the others after their race. It'd have been fun to have run with the big bunch of QOC and others I usually race that came in in a pack.

Orienteering race (Sprint) 20:56 [4] *** 2.61 mi (8:01 / mi) +95m 7:12 / mi

Flying Pig Sprint in Loveland, OH. I felt like I wasn't clean on most legs but didn't make big errors. Lack of planning routes and hesitations were probably my biggest kinds of errors. Except for last couple controls I ran by myself. See the Split List.

Running (Street & Trail) 22:27 [3] 3.0 mi (7:29 / mi)

In Fort Collins, CO. From E. Horsetooth Rd., to Northstar Crse. to Warren Lake, around it clockwise on roads and back to E. Horsetooth Rd. I got out early before work so that I could at least do something before flying home in the evening. On my flight home I was literally squeezed into a seat next to a very large guy who could not fit in his seat alone--I think he had too many cookies.

Running warm up/down (Warm-up) 15:40 [2] 2.0 mi (7:50 / mi)

In Fort Collins, CO. From the visitor parking lot off W. Prospect Rd. in Colorado State University, to the Jack Christiansen track and around it several times. A coldish (~37F) wind was whipping snow showers out of the north snapping the flag straight out. I got there just as the track was officially opening to the public at 6pm.

Running intervals (Track) 18:19 [5] 1.65 km (11:06 / km)

It felt like a pitiful effort trying to do 8 x 200m with a 200m jog. I used to race 1,600m faster than my splits would have added up to (34.6, 37.3, 36.3, 37.6, 37.8, 36.4, 37.3, 36.2). Even with mostly a tailwind it felt slow yet I was tiring less than 100m into each run.

Running warm up/down (Warm-down) 20:36 [3] 2.6 mi (7:55 / mi)

From the Jack Christiansen Track in Fort Collins, CO along the train tracks and College Ave to the Spring Creek Trail headed east. From the Prospect St. underpass I turned around and ran back to Centre Ave. to the CSU visitor parking lot off Prospect Rd.

Calisthenics (General) 2:00 [3]

I thought to run after eating so I could see the Amazing Race but couldn't find it on the tube. Instead I ate first and got tired. 45 situps.

Running (Trail) 1:03:09 [3] 8.0 mi (7:54 / mi)
slept:4.0 weight:170lbs

In Fort Collins, CO. From Horestooth Rd. into the Pine Ridge Natural Area looping over the ridge, around the Dixon resevoir and other side loops. The maps led me astray when searching for the Foothills Trail so I didn't have time to get up there. The prarie dogs were cool. Starting off into the stiff wind up the ridge and feeling lack of sleep, the change in altitude (~5,000ft.) and yesterday's runs, I felt rather weak. The sun and running w/o sweats was nice.
