Volleyball (indoor) 1:00:00 [2]
shoes: VB: Newbalance 620

I warmed up well but didn't start strong. It took awhile to get into the swing of things. Once I did I played well. We won the first two games but couldn't pull it off on the third.
7 PM

Soccer (indoor) 24:00 [4]
shoes: Soccer Indoor Nike 2010

The other team was good. They out skilled us. We did manage to hold our own but gave up several quick goals. We lost 9-6. I didn't give up an goals but only because our goalie saved me. I got beat several times.

Rt 175 + Severn road. It was warm out and I was home early enough to run outside.

The heart rate monitor showed an interesting thing. 1.1 mile into my run my heart rate drops and then stays constant even when running up the hill.

Treadmill (2 incline) 15:00 [2] 1.0 mi (15:00 / mi)

Did a mile on the treadmill in my mocassins. I need to loosen up some from yesterday's skiing. I jogged on lap but walked the rest.

Orienteering (ski O) 2:24:34 [4] 7.0 mi (20:39 / mi)

My first ever ski o. I decided to do the long course to make it worth the long drive (3.5 hrs each way).
the course was only 7K but my GPS said I traveled 7.04 miles. That is a long way since there wasn't a whole lot of glide time. Basically it was like walking (and running) the whole way with skiis on. I am a lousy cross country skier. I rented skiis and that certainly didn't help. I think they gave me skiis to long for my weight. They just looked at my size and gave me the longest skis they had. I don't think I weighed enought to get good grip on the push off. There wasn't room to skate on some of the narrower trails although I could see other do it (my skis went into the soft snow as the edge).
I tried skate skiing but wasn't very succesful at it. I alternated between diagonal skiiing in the track to diagonal skiing in the open area. Basically I tried to stay out of everyone's way. I made my best time running up the hill so I could pass Tom Strat again (who passed me earlier). I made good time but it took a lot of energy.
I could have done the course much faster in running shoes and just carrying my skiis. There were some places where I would have taken my skiis off and run down/up the steep hills if I knew how to take off my skiis. I had to ask at the finish how to get my skiis off.
i fell several times. once pretty hard. Tom Strat fell in the same spot.
Overall, I had fun but when it quicker to just hike the distance than ski then obviously it isn't the sport for me.
