Hiking 45:00 [1]

lunch loop

Sunday May 11, 2008 #

Cycling 1:45:00 [4] 48.7 km (2:09 / km)
weight:207lbs shoes: Trek 2300

AM training ride, through the park & out Log Cabin to Fishers/Phillips/251/Willis Hill Road, then out Strong to Bennett & left on CR39 to the village, back out W Main to 64, through Mendon to Van Voorhis.

2 distinct rides - going out to Bloomfield ran into a stiff headwind, so mentally seemed like an uphill plod the whole way, turned around at the village and seemed like a downhill sprint all the way home. Overall time wasn't far off the average 2:15 (I'd like to be closer to 2 min/km on the shorter distances, but we're not there yet)

Off to rehydrate and get ready for the Scout-O

Cycling 32:00 [4] 14.55 km (2:12 / km)
shoes: Galli

Ride to O-Meet at Mendon Ponds, Probst - Mi Sq - Smith - Mendon Ctr - Canfield

Cycling 26:00 [4] 12.0 km (2:10 / km)
shoes: Galli

Back from Mendon Ponds O-meet, felt a bit slower than the ride in.

Orienteering race (Green Course) 1:00:16 [4] 4.9 km (12:18 / km)

Green Course at the Mendon Ponds Scout-O. Decided to drop down a color today, rather than doing the Red course. The prospect of another 2km and longer road legs didn't appeal to me after 60km on the bike this AM. As it turns out, 1-8 were the same on both courses.

Started off slow and lost a few minutes heading too far S, then changing my mind halfway to the Devil's Bathtub and deciding I really wanted to go around the N side of the Bathtub, so I went up to the top of Cardiac Hill, then backtracked up to the swamp crossing then around the W side of the swamp through the woods to the stone fence. Just lookin' to pile up the mileage . . .

3 flustered me a bit b/c the number was incorrect. Punched anyway and did a quick loop to convince myself that it was the only possible feature in the region. Was pretty sure it was the right control anyway. 4 was clean, but getting to 5 I made the mistake of taking the trail right along the edge of the swamp W of the esker. Trail was pretty much impassable, and I almost lost my shoe in 3' of muck.

6 took a little longer than it should have since I hit the watercourse too far N and had to slog back down, again in marginally passable marsh. 7 ended up too much like an in and out dogleg since I approached from the road. Remaining controls were pretty clean. All in all, the running was slow, but the navigation was better than usual. (Coincidence?) Will post splits later.

(rest day)

Took the day off. Went to catch the Red Wings game & fireworks in the PM. Wings won 3-2. Kids loved it.

Soccer race 1:45:00 [4]

Game against the Rovers at Grace & Truth Park. 2-2 tie. Managed to build a two goal lead on Koen's two solo goals, but then barely held on for a tie when Rovers scored two of their own. Played wing midfield. Poor substitution pattern, ended up with a very tired team and very fresh subs who couldn't get into the game!
