Orienteer 1:58:00  ** 5.8 km (20:21 / km)
shoes: Inov8 Roclite 305
Very low energy today. Maybe it should have been a hint when I slept in super late, dreaming of orienteering instead of getting up and running as had been my plan when I went to bed.....
I was in Forest Park, doing a course walk through prior to the meet. I thought that was a little odd....didn't know they did course walk-throughs in Orienteering (probably a throw back to my Cross X days, I grew up 1/2 mile from Forest Park and routinely jogged, sometimes raced there both in HS and College). Some of the controls had some circuit training work. I asked... where does the thinking part come in? And was handed a few sheets of paper with questions that would be asked at control 12 (where there was a book to read). Kind of like an SAT test; which my daughter just took.
Anyway, maybe I should have stayed in bed. Instead, I ran Lake Elmo, trying to find 31 areas, boulders, re-entrants, etc. Not too much problem finding them, but my mind was really in slow motion today, and my legs were feeling the same. Some of the areas, I wasn't sure if I found them and went back from a different angle just to be sure, so this exercise took a very long time. As I said, just extremely low low energy both in brain and body.
Hope I'm not getting sick just in time for my vacation.
