OCIN Flying Pig XX Sprint - Miami University Hamilton Campus - Red Course 12 (F-21+)

Placed 2nd in F-21+... probably the only time that will ever happen. Because there were only three people ;-)

Took about 2 controls to get into the mapping in the scrubby forest area. I figured out pretty quickly that the green wasn't too bad and it was easy to pop through it for short distances. The section with all the long depressions was interesting and weird. No problems finding anything, and the bit around the campus at the end was cool. Wish the conservatory had been open to visit after the race, but it closed at 1.

Thought my leg problems would slow me down this weekend, but not really. It sometimes hurt when stepping or landing certain ways, but the pain doesn't make me lame. Running actually helps.

Sprints are my favorite. So much fun!

Overlook Park

I'm pretty sure what I thought was a tight calf muscle is actually sciatic nerve pain. Unless my calf suddenly goes all the way up to my butt. It seems to actually be relieved after exercise or sleep, worse after sitting. The feeling is more sharp and pinchy than muscle pain would be. I don't know exactly how to describe it.

C25K app - Week 3/Day 2

Manheim Township Park

This place has a big hill on a small loop and I think I ran up that sucker about 6 times. Very slow.

New scale confirms that old scale was losing its mind.

C25K app - Week 3/Day 1

At the rail trail. Because flat. The program time goes down slightly this week, but the running segments combine to longer periods.

Buying a new scale because I either lost 6 more pounds yesterday or now weigh more than I did three weeks ago, depending on where in the room I stand.

DVOA Hay Creek - Green

I was a little tentative going back here after last summer's event. In fact, I woke up thinking that I hate Hay Creek (I think what I really meant is that I hate summer orienteering!) Redemption for me and the map thanks to Erik's nice courses (and the month of March.)

My left calf hurt yesterday, so I rested it, and still hurt this morning, but I felt a big knot in it in the shower and massaged it out some. It was better, though not perfect, but didn't hurt as long as I kept moving.

Beautiful open woods. Pretty much bang on into every control, although sometimes I took around rather than through routes on the longer legs. (Took trails from 8 to 9, could see the big rocky hilltop from the trail W of it. 10-11 I took right hand route on the trail South and then attacked from the dot knoll on the hilltop South of the control. Arrived there at the same time as the people who had been at 9/10 with me and cut through the woods.)

Not sure about the weight... I couldn't believe that 5.5 pounds came off in two days, but I checked it again in the bathroom and then moved the scale to another room in case there was a gravitational anomaly in there. The same all three times. Or maybe the battery is just dying.
