Orienteering race 2:25:08 [3] *** 13.2 km (11:00 / km) +396m 9:34 / km
spiked:17/20c shoes: Jalas

Ultra-long champs. Managed to be clean through the first 14 controls/2 hours (my secret was to move slowly!), and then felt like something of a zombie for the short final loop. This was a much more successful long distance outing than previous attempts, and the first chunk felt good, so I'm happy with it. I should probably run with 1:15 maps more often...

More later for all of these once I get back to Tucson, but overall I thought the meet was very nice and I'm quite pleased with my runs. Friday's result was the best I've had in terms of world ranking points, Saturday morning was good in terms of time behind some speedsters, and Sunday eked out a bronze when I certainly wasn't expecting to do so. No complaints here!

Running 10:00 [2]
shoes: Integrators (orange)

Got in a short warm up and a short warm down bracketing the first sprint.

Orienteering race 19:05 [4] *** 2.9 km (6:35 / km) +60m 5:58 / km
spiked:17/17c shoes: Integrators (orange)

Sprint #1. Clean. Fast as I could, which isn't fast enough, but still a good run, thank goodness. The map, when viewed from a distance greater than 30 centimeters from the face, looks like it has chicken pox. With green poxi. Poxes. Pocks?

Running warm up/down 5:00 [2]
shoes: Integrators (orange)

Short warmup in the afternoon. Figured my legs were still warm from the morning. That's how it works, right?

Orienteering race 21:42 [4] *** 2.7 km (8:02 / km) +70m 7:07 / km
spiked:9/14c shoes: Integrators (orange)

Sprint #2. This one didn't go as well. I was pretty sloppy, probably thinking I could run and navigate as fast as in the morning, but that wasn't always possible. There's also something about 1:5 maps with woods that throws my calibrated brain for a loop.

Orienteering 20:00 [1] ***
9c shoes: Jalas

Model event.

Running warm up/down 10:00 [2]
shoes: Jalas

On the way to the start.

Orienteering 36:55 [3] *** 4.3 km (8:35 / km) +150m 7:19 / km
20c shoes: Jalas

Pig middle. Pretty happy with the run, despite some bobbles and one pretty sizable goof (at least 1:30). The course felt like a long sprint, so I think I was moving faster than I had planned or would have done on a normal middle course, but for some reason that seems like an okay trade-off today. Obviously I could have run better, but I'm satisfied.

More later. (?)

Running (road) 40:00 [2] 4.0 mi (10:00 / mi)
ahr:161 max:175 shoes: Gus (Asics 2120)

Easy noon-time run around the golf course. Warm (low 80s) and sunny but not yet hot. Thank goodness. Not going to be able to run in the middle of the day much longer. Summer is coming [cue death march music].

My legs are sore. My quads aren't sore any more, which is what hurt after Sunday's run, so I'm thinking that the "wimpy" stuff on Monday may not actually have been that wimpy. Maybe it didn't seem hard to me because I'm in better cardiovascular shape than those other guys, but I never do any strength work, so now that's biting me.

Cycling (road) 20:00 [2]

Ride in.

I'm reminded of the totally un-PC "arguing on the internet is like racing in the Special Olympics; even if you win, you're still retarded".

Other Cardio 30:00 [2]

Circuit training workout as part of the Physical Training Leader class. I had been dreading this class because I'd heard from the other PTLs in the squadron that the instructor really gave them a brutal workout at the end of the class. I think they're just a bunch of wimps.

My legs (quads especially) are sore from yesterday.

Skating (inline) 35:00 [3] 5.7 mi (6:08 / mi)
ahr:153 max:169

Skated around the bike path a couple of times. All I can say about the state of my legs is "oof". I'm sure the 'wimpy' PTL workout didn't help, with those lunges and bleachers and skips (and lions and tigers and bears).

It was really busy tonight on the bike path. I counted over 120 (different) people on my second lap. Craziness! This includes Mike and Lazslo, so I think at this point I can't consider it a coincidence if I see them at Reid on a weekday between six and seven...
