orienteering (highlander) 7:08:17 [3] 26.3 km (16:17 / km)
slept:2.0 (sick)

Up at 2:30am to drive to Highlander. Met Eddie at White Flint and he drove most of the way. Good thing because I was not feeling so good. Have had a cold for a few days and today am congested and have a headache. Have done every thing wrong to prepare, no training, no sleep, no rest, and the wrong foods. Just hoping to finish in the 8 hours time limit.
Aspirin and decongestant, erg and a powerbar and I start the race from the back. Settle in a train being led by Peggy Dickison and stay there as long as I can. Manage to hang for 2 loops (15.4k) but cannot get out of the 3rd aide station fast enough and am dropped. I would have been dropped anyway since only small errors were keeping me in contact. Walked much of the rest of course except on the smoother portions. Constant threat of cramping. Steadily lost places until there was no one left to pass me. Still, it was not my worst Highlander ever. I did 7:30 in the rain at my first one. Ran the 10k XC before that one also.
Splits are posted, and eventually descriptions will be as well.

run (XC race) 48:51 [3] 10.0 km (4:53 / km)

MCRRC Lake Needwood 10k. Not really what I needed the day before the Highlander but I like the race and Ted would be here also. Went out slow and got slower. 1mi 7:03, 5k 22:30. Should have stopped at port-o-john at 5k. Rest of the race was miserable and I staggered in at 48:51. Last time I ran the race in 2001 I did 42:19.
Felt sick for the rest of the day.

Square dancing (plus, hex) 40:00 [1]

From the XC race drove directly to WV (about hour 45 min) for square dancing demos at Jefferson county barn tour. Danced off and on between 11-4 and then another dance at Panhandlers from 8-10:30pm. Barbeque picnic in between.
