orienteering race 1:20:34 [4] 7.4 km (10:53 / km)

Valley Goat 2. Good solid effort; hit most controls dead on. Did the first 3/4 with Dasha. My left quad was burning on every downhill; guess I got more of a workout the last two days than I realized. Was pleased when two young adventure racer types came up behind me on the walk back to the parking and said they had been seeing me and trying to catch me for the last 3km of the course but just couldn't do it.

map hiking 1:30:00 [1]

Hard to know how to log this. Spent 3 1/2 hours wandering around Fair Hill trying to see which pockets of woods would have interesting orienteering in them for a local event I'm course setting. I found lots of beautiful open, runnable hillsides - most of which were featureless unfortunately. But there were nice point features in other places so the trick will be to figure out a way to place controls so that people get to run the nice woods and can use trails around the not so nice stuff.

running 59:08 [3]

A good effort on a hill loop - managed to not walk at all which I haven't done for a while. Can't say I was moving particularly well, but I was able to keep up a jog the whole way - about 4 1/2 miles total, going down to the creek level and back up to the top of the ridge on the other side twice and then the hill home. Really missed the Florida terrain - not the flatness but the lack of rocks. Downhill on the trails was really difficult.

Some wimpy intervals down on the drive; better than the alternative though, which was nothing.

running 1:12:00 [3]

TNT - 5 miles on the Drive with Sandy and Dasha, plus jog down and walk home. Felt reasonable for 4 doing a little under 10 min. pace, then legs suddenly felt like they had lead weights on them. First time I've just walked the whole way home in a long while.
