7 AM

orienteering race 54:09 [4] *** 5.22 km (10:23 / km) +208m 8:39 / km

WP middle day 2. I thought this was more fun than the first day...though it was a bit rougher and less pleasant. Both running and map reading were working better than the first day.

On the way to 12 I was comfortably ahead of the people I wanted to beat (Peter, Jenny and Anna) when I turned an ankle and that was pretty much the end of things. I "lost" a good 4.5 minutes over the last 10-12 minutes of the course because I was either not moving or moving slowly.

I'm guessing the ankle will be ok in a week or so, but that I'll be forced to race with an Active Ankle for the next few months. Oh well.

Oh yeah, despite being injured, I beat Anna.

Warming up.

orienteering race 42:25 [4] *** 4.9 km (8:39 / km) +171m 7:22 / km

WP middle distance M45. I struggled with the running but felt like I was reading the map pretty well. Fun.


running 10:00 [2]

Some warm up (largely hiking up the steep hill).
12 PM

orienteering 21:54 [4] *** 3.16 km (6:55 / km) +95m 6:01 / km

WP sprint. Slow running but otherwise good. Anna beat me.

It was interesting to compare splits to Jenny. She did much better than me in the forest and I was relatively closer on the urban-like areas. But it kind of looks like I was relatively better in the forest versus the field as a whole and worse in the urban-like areas. I guess that means that Jenny ran especially well in the forest.


running 10:00 [1]

A little bit of warming up.

orienteering 30:00 [2]

Jogging around at Harriman with Jenny. We found a few locations. You could tell that one of us grew up in terrain with some rocks.

MTB cycling 20:00 [1]

A little MTB riding...

MTB Orienteering 20:00 [1]

A little MTBO on the West Campus sprint map. One of the screws on my left shoe came out and when I twisted my foot to snap out of the pedals, the shoe didn't pop out (the cleat just twisted on the one remaining screw). I managed to avoid falling over still clipped in!

cycling 45:00 [1]

Work commute with conditions that most would consider nice (i.e. no rain or sleet).

Mowed when I got home.


Considered a short run, but I'm feeling a bit worn mentally. The work week has been hectic - not in a bad way, but I come home feeling worn out.

cycling 45:00 [1]

Work commute.

To work featured 35F, strong headwind, rain and sleet.

Home was cold and dark. I was fairly late getting home since I had to present to the CC.

cycling 45:00 [1]

Work commute. On the way home I poked around Jayhawk Towers. I figured there might be a chance I'd find the stolen SI unit and marker. I didn't.

The plan for the evening was to mow the yard. The rain kept that from happening. Snow is forecast for tomorrow. I'm skeptical, but it would be pretty cool to have snow in late April.
