Orienteering race (Great Falls MD) 1:37:27 [4] 8.5 km (11:28 / km) +345m 9:32 / km
ahr:167 max:181 slept:6.5 shoes: Inov8 RocLite315

Advanced Course - 10/34

After a morning of presenting my poster to a decent number of interested parties, Helen and I were treated to door-to-forest service by Eddie. Thanks!

This was the first sold-out orienteering event I've been to, which made it pretty special. The orienteering itself was scrappy. I think I underestimated the climb and navigation and found myself banana-ing to many controls on the first have. When I focussed more on the back straight I found the controls more cleanly. Lovely forest, and lovely falls to check out afterwards.

Even though I registered late, started late and finished after course closing - none of the QOC organisers seemed to mind. Big thanks to them all!

Running (National Zoo) 36:24 [3] 6.3 km (5:47 / km) +100m 5:21 / km
ahr:153 max:166 slept:6.0 shoes: Saucony Fast Twitch 5

Finding it difficult to sleep, so just got up to go for a short early run before heading to the conference.
Didn't really know where I was going but just aimed for a park I knew was to the north from looking at maps.
Interestingly I found myself in the zoo with fellow joggers and some walkers. More interesting animal I saw was a giant panda, though most animals seemed to be indoors.
Was shorter than planned, but I wasn't feeling the sharpest, so that suited fine.
