Trail Run (Little Bennett) 1:40:00 [3] 8.25 mi (12:07 / mi)
shoes: Ice Bugs - Red Storm

Met Sarah for a run at Little Bennett before the O meet. I was unsure whether I was going to be able to go out on a course today or not, so a run was good. Mostly wide trail with about 2 miles on the road.

Comfortable temps at 8:30 am.

Running 8:00 [3] 0.8 mi (10:00 / mi)
shoes: Ice Bugs - Red Storm

Had met Sarah in the parking lot outside the park, and then left my keys with the meet personnel as I ran by in case additional controls were needed.

After finishing with Sarah, I ran from the parking lot back to the meet site to get my keys (an a ride back to my car.)

Orienteering race (Little Bennett Green) 1:17:52 [4] *** 5.6 km (13:54 / km) +180m 11:59 / km
shoes: Ice Bugs - Red Storm

After everyone had started, I left the download in Graham's capable hands and went out on a course. It was now much warmer at 2:30 then it was at 8:30.
A good run except for not listening to myself going into #8. I always have problem in this area, and I even pulled back right away to sort myself out, but not enough and ended up with ~7 minutes in error here.

Took a spectacular fall just before #11 - downhill, rolling, wood, leaves, swearing. Calf is very stiff. Will see what tomorrow brings before I worry too much.

Thanks to Graham for manning download, and Sandy for assisting after he had to leave.

A couple hours of yard work in a light mist. Cleaning the flower beds will have to wait - maybe a few evenings next week after work.

Out and about enjoying the nice day. Perfect running temps, with a bit of wind. Breathing a bit harsh for the first 20 minutes.

Followed up the run with 30 minutes of walking as fast as I could. Included almost every hill in the neighborhood.

Misc (THE DVD) 40:00 [2]

I might have to start knocking this down to a 1 - it is getting so easy. Just kidding! :) But it did feel good tonight, and my breathing is back to normal, or close to, from the cold I had.
