Running warm up/down 26:39 [2] 3.5 km (7:37 / km) +50m 7:06 / km
shoes: O-Inov8 Oroc 340

Short warmup, and cooldown on AJ's white - hard to keep up with AJ. A splash through a stream that was about 1 foot deeper than expected, 2 minutes from the finish was a real slap to already tired legs, then I had to shadow AJ. At least I changed right away today so I didn't freeze.

Orienteering race 1:42:01 intensity: (16:29 @2) + (48:17 @3) + (37:15 @4) 15.0 km (6:48 / km) +400m 6:00 / km
shoes: O-Inov8 Oroc 340

Ross caught me 4 minutes about 1/3 of the way through, and while I kept up with a slightly better route at the end of the first leg we ran together, I missed a little on the leg afterwards, apparently swerving off my rough compass, while he went right (perhaps to bounce off the trail?) Won 2 of the next 3 splits trying to catch back up to Ross, apparently reeling him back in about 30 seconds - but he was still out of sight and I never saw him again.

Again, a decent run overall, but still about 7 minutes of nav. time lost that I could've done better on, and, given my ability to win splits while trying to catch Ross, and my low HR overall, I'm sure I left some time on the table physically too.

More consistent use of the compass would've helped a lot technically.

Event: Hickory Run
 

Running warm up/down 40:00 [2] 4.5 km (8:53 / km) +80m 8:10 / km
shoes: O-Inov8 Oroc 340

Short warmup (at a cold Hickory Run event - flurries - at least not sleet...), plus a long cool-down with AJ running White. "The coolest White course every, though a little cheap." I.e. the scenery/terrain was awesome - deciduous to dark evergreen forests, cool stream crosses, a stone-slab 'sidewalk' next to a water-slide of a stream, waterfall, steep drops into the stream, tunnels through rhododendrum, a stair-case slot up a cube-like cliff.

Orienteering race 35:30 intensity: (43 @2) + (5:26 @3) + (28:32 @4) + (49 @5) 5.23 km (6:47 / km) +133m 6:01 / km
shoes: O-Inov8 Oroc 340

Hickory Run Middle - Decent run - no major bogeys - just a bad route choice on one leg though there's one time loss in AP that I'll need to check the map on... more later if I'm serious about improving.

Running 20:09 [2] 3.5 km (5:45 / km) +10m 5:40 / km
shoes: R-NB-760

Denver airport, west long-term parking lot. Pretty view of the mountains & some altitude training all between flights...

Thursday Nov 4, 2010 #

Running warm up/down 8:22 [2] 1.47 km (5:41 / km) +9m 5:31 / km
shoes: R-NB-760

Running 1:06:39 [2] 11.87 km (5:37 / km) +241m 5:06 / km
shoes: R-NB-760

Ran with a colleague I didn't even know was a runner - testing 5 GPS devices at the same time, incl. my FR 305. But in Silicon Valley, no one even gave us a 2nd look...

Wednesday Nov 3, 2010 #

Running 20:05 intensity: (10:00 @1) + (10:05 @2) 2.32 mi (8:39 / mi)
shoes: R-NB-760

Slept through morning planned run, worked through evening planned group track intervals, then ran on the treadmill in the evening.
Work, while technically satisfying at times, definitely sucks time away from other things...

Tuesday Nov 2, 2010 #

Running 39:31 [2] 6.73 km (5:52 / km) +191m 5:09 / km
shoes: R-NB-760

Pretty run @ Rancho, time limited by a 9am mtg. (that I scheduled, oops)

Monday Nov 1, 2010 #

Running 45:06 [2] 6.93 km (6:30 / km) +93m 6:06 / km
shoes: R-NB-760

Work week in CA, though my Mon. run was in PA, as the morning flights were sold out - figured out why when I arrived in CA as people were apparently flying out in the AM to get to the final game of the World Series, where the Giants won that evening. Got to the office at 7:30pm, and talked to 3 people as they were leaving or getting ready to... people work a lot there.
