12 PM

Orienteering race (Little Bennett - Brown) 1:07:07 [3] *** 4.2 km (15:59 / km) +140m 13:42 / km

FR = 3.47 miles with 132 m climb

Got to hang with Barney briefly before he went out on his course with sgb.

Got out later than expected, just before 1 PM. Very cold, in the low 20s, and the woods did not feel as sheltered from the wind as they did last night. Had the right amount of clothes on - top was 1 short and 2 long. Bottom was long with thigh covering undershorts. Buff on head.

Happy with this effort, though flagging a bit at the end. I guess I need a pick me up about 30 minutes in.

2 PM

Orienteering race (Yellow - non comp) 29:03 [3] *** 2.4 km (12:06 / km) +60m 10:46 / km

FR = 1.71 miles and 86 m climb

There was a little bit of smack talk between Alexis and I, so after a 14 minute rest, I went out to run the Yellow as well. Pretty tired by now, and the climb to 8 seemed like it took 10 minutes. Trail is a bit off from 9-10, but I was on the trail, so I didn't adjust my tracks...

Hands were freezing for the first 20 minutes, and I had removed on of the long sleeve shirts, which would have been fine, if I had kept the warmer on on. The wind was blowing right through me, and my stomach was bright red when I finished.

Alexis got me by a lot (7 minutes), but then she was determined to avenge the loss from last night, and she is 13, and can run fast!

No regrets on giving it a go. Would liked to have been closer to 24 minutes, but, well, tired legs. :)

I think it may be the purple ice bugs which are aggravating my heel...
