Orienteering 43:54 [4]

Well, cool! Had a pretty clean race to win both TT and F21, although AJ Riley snuck in ahead on M20, so didn't win the course.

I'm expecting #7 to be my biggest mistake, kinda wandered off-route. But there were many features to save yourself by on this map, so did that. Generally I wasn't that confident with bearings. On today's feature-full map that didn't hurt me much, but need to work on.

Right ankle crunched at some point in the course, so now icing it and ibuprofen-ing. Hoping it feels better for tomorrow, these woods are fun to orienteer in!!

Running warm up/down 10:00 [1]

Gentle warm-up. So nice to see people I haven't seen in a long time!! Tom took Sylvia to the finish to make friends. Tom's parents and sister and brother-in-law all came to spectate. Not the awesomest, but think they saw me twice from the distance before finishing at least!

Orienteering race 15:40 [4]

Well, cool! Pleased to run decently fast and pleased I remembered how to sprint orienteer.

1 - Didn't even see the woods route. Not sure if it would be worth it to Red's first control, looks like it was to Blue's.
2 - Took right route. Wasn't terribly yellow along fence, but not slow either, so ok.
3 - Left route. Small error, didn't take stairs, which saved distance.
4 - Left route.
5 - Left route and took stairs this time, but now looking I kinda like right more.
6 - Right route. But eep! Construction! Saw the Blue control first, remembering the instructions that the control was supposed to be inside was outside and marked on the map. But it wasn't the right number. So looked up, saw the actual fence and control I was looking for and continued on to them. Think this confused most runners on Red.
7 - Right route. Feeling like I'd like to be running faster.
8 - Right route. Now maybe like left better. At least would have been more fully in the shade.
9 - Fine.
10 - Right route.
11 - Happy to run under the shade canopy!
12 - 1st small mistake: almost ran down hill the wrong direction (E instead of NE). 2nd small mistake, came out into the open quad when I meant to run N between the two rows of dorms.
13 - Fine, flipped map on way there to see what was up next.
14 - Fine, definitely feeling more tired!
15 - Choose left. Now like right more.
16 - Left route, still more shade-running under canopy.
17 - Fence helped not stop to early to check things out.
18 - Fine.

So yeah, only small mistakes. Perhaps some non-optimal route choices, but all of the route choices to me seemed like fairly close calls.

Note

Travel day. Met with my student 9-10am, then to the airport! Sylvia planed well, but we were spoiled with an extra seat in our row, so she got to play and sit and squirm in her own space.

Running 16:30 [1] 1.41 mi (11:42 / mi)

Pre-pilates canyon lap, while reading a sprint training course @ SUNY Purchase that we did at Camp Neil in 2012.

Strength 40:00 [1]

Pilates with Mary. Just 4 of us today, nice and calm. I am soooo inflexible.

Stroller jog/run 12:16 [1] 1.42 mi (8:38 / mi)

After 1st nap, over to Reed to check in with my summer research student #1 who is totally rocking it and thus hard to keep up with! She's coding in R, which is kinda new to me, but we're going to get to the bottom of this statistics issue, gosh darn it!

Not enough time to fully de-bug what was going on, but gave some ideas, then ran over to the gym to join the crew.

Stroller jog/run 1:04:35 [1] 6.42 mi (10:04 / mi)

And a longer run with the noon runners. Ueli, Aaron and Todd today. Ueli and I ran the longer bike path as opposed to the shorter trail option due to stroller. But that was good because we were running faster anyways.

Sylvia asleep upon return, so she got to continue nap in the garage. I got in a shower *and* lunch before she woke up, which was pretty awesome.

Later had baby swimming class. Main missions of the class seem better comprehended by the older babies (blowing bubbles, only jumping in when a parent says ok, hand-over-handing on side of pool), but at least Sylvia seems to like the water and is having fun! She walked around on her own in the water, holding onto a floaty.

Running 4:18 [1]

Crosstrainer 15:00 [1]

Strength 45:00 [1]

Last pilates class with Vicki. Very sad. It has been great to take her Pilates, and earlier, Zumba, classes at Reed for the past few years. So spoiled that fitness classes come to *us* at lunch. Hopefully we can find another good instructor (for the summer have the student's Pilates instructor, but she becomes booked again when they come back.)

Running 48:00 [2] 4.82 mi (9:58 / mi)

A bit tired from racing yesterday, but went out for a tour with a map of SUNY Purchase to have a look while running. That skill is definitely rusty... Feel like I'm cramming for team trials.
