MTB cycling 1:30:00 [1]

MTB on the river trails after work. Super fun and a really nice evening to be out.

The log that I crossed so smoothly yesterday didn't go quite as well, but it was still probably the 2nd or 3rd best I've cleared it. Maybe I'm figuring it out.

Here's a taste of some of the smoothest, fastest section of trail:

running 1:30:00 intensity: (1:10:00 @2) + (20:00 @4)

I ran on the trails at Clinton S.P. I included 2 x 4 minutes at an honest effort with 1 minute walking and then 3 x the same thing. It felt ok. I wasn't moving fast, but it is a start.

Part of today's run was on the last few miles of the Hawk 100 miler. I met a few of the runners. I guess they were going to finish around 29-30 hours for the 100. All of them looked tired. About half looked tired but ok. A few looked terrible and tired.


MTB cycling 50:00 [1]

A short ride on the river trail (basically one loop plus a little bit extra). I felt ok but my legs were definitely a little tired from the run.

I biked over a log at one point. I don't usually have trouble riding this particular obstacle, but today it felt so much smoother and easier. I think I managed the combination of balance and speed just right. It'd be nice to be able to do that on purpose. I'm not there yet.

orienteering 13:25 [4] *** 1.53 mi (8:46 / mi)

PTOC sprint at Antioch Park. Wonderful weather with temps in the upper 60s. Felt slow but ok. A couple of less than optimal routes on 3 and 5. On 3 I just hesitated and then took the wrong route. On 5 I saw the straighter route but the rough yellow with scattered trees looked a little rough, so I decided to go around it, then thought the fence was forbidden to cross and went to the gap in the fence.

Route + GPS + Go Pro video will come soon....and on the little video camera next to the little globe for the route + GPS track + video.

Hmmm..the O map doesn't seem to be loading on the video page...or maybe I just need to make sure I've installed the Google Earth browser plug in.
