Run (1/2 road 1/2 grass) 42:03 [3] 4.52 mi (9:18 / mi)
shoes: Run: Asics Gel Yayano 24

Muscles and joints still very sore from soccer and volleyball. I couldn't move very fast. It was good for me to get out and loosen up some.
3 PM

walk (road with Darcy) 44:29 [1] 2.09 mi (21:17 / mi)

We walked up to the new bakery. It was very small and didn't have much of a selection.

Volleyball (indoor) 40:00 [1]
shoes: VB : hyperdunk low

First game of the season. There was a major traffic accident shutting down the main highway which caused traffic logjam everywhere. Several people were late getting to the game. The other team had to forfeit the first game and played the 2nd/3rd with only 5 people. We had 6.
I was rusty. It took awhile to get moving. Despite warming up I was still sore from soccer. My team played just like we always do. We should have won easily but we were streaky. Our defense was poor but our offense was good. We still ended up losing the two games we played.

Soccer (outdoor) 1:15:00 [3]
shoes: Soccer Indoor Nike 2013 Mercer

We had a totally different set of women this time which was to our benefit. I tried to start a stronger defense this time so we didn't fall behind score wise right at the start. We started off better but still gave up 2 goals fairly early. The good news is we scored 2 goals. At half time it was 3-2 so we were still in the game. Unfortunately, we got tired and gave up several goals the second half but they had to earn each one. We lost 6-3. All in all I think we played well. I moved back to defense 2nd half after one our defender had to leave. Because the other team was doing less fast breaks I didn't have to run as much so wasn't in as much danger of getting leg cramps. I was still very tired by the end.

Run warm up/down 10:49 [3] 1.05 mi (10:18 / mi)
shoes: Soccer Indoor Nike 2013 Mercer

Very slow jog around the park as that was all I could manage.

Orienteering race (sprint) 20:34 [4] 2.9 km (7:06 / km)
shoes: Reeboks

Course was supposed to be very 3 dimensional.
I started off well. Control 1 was a tunnel. I found the control ok but the tunnel was too dark to read the map. I had to stop under a light and hold the map up to it in order to see where #2 was. Then I was blinded when I ran back into the sunlight. I was doing ok up through #8. (I was in 3rd place, then things fell apart. I went to the right around the building going to 9 (on the side of 10). Since I was no approaching from the 10 direction I started running back towards 8 thinking I was going to 10. I didn't get to far before I realized my mistake but I had the slowest leg to 10. Then leaving 10, I got confused by the purple lines around the buildings. I was thinking they were out of bounds areas so went out of my way to avoid them. I took a horrible route to 11 and then screwed it up also. At that point my race wasn't worth much. I tried to keep moving but was tired.
3 PM

Orienteering (sprint relay) 25:42 [5] 3.3 mi (7:47 / mi)
shoes: Reeboks

I was the first leg of the relay team : Me, Boris Granovskiy, Joe Barret. All the courses were supposed to be roughly the same but with forking.
I was in the front line at the start so was near the lead when we reached the start control. I cut off at the turn to the steps. It was going to be a rough course. My first control was the farthest up the hill. So while I was near the front by the time I joined the rest of the pack I was way back.
There were no separate control descriptions and the ones printed on the map were printed to small to read. I had to continually slow down/stop in order to unfold the map and see what I was supposed to run to.
Overall I ran fairly clean but was so tired. At one point I had to walk along the road as i couldn't breath. Gregory Balter caught up to as I was standing next to the control right after that being confused. I though the control was a parking lot but it was the field. Once he punched I realized my mistake. I largely followed him the last few controls. It turns out we had the exact same course.
Near the end there was a dog leg and Carol Walker came up behind me and was totally blocking my exit. Instead of allowing me to pass she was block me and trying to reach around me to punch. I basically had to push her aside to get out.
I could have been faster but overall, given my conditioning, was happy with my run.
Team was the 4th team in and 3rd in the 4pt category.
