warm, light rain. ahr:149

Sunday Oct 21, 2001 #

Running (warmup) 8:00 [3] 1.0 mi (8:00 / mi)

Orienteering race (race) 53:06 [4] *** 9.4 km (5:39 / km)

rochester day2. no problems near the circle today, but some difficulty with trails/junctions in the middle of legs 5,6. running faster but also sloppier recently-- no more of this please. a minute behind matthias today, but almost 2 ahead of duca, so still took the big win overall. thats my first (and hopefully not the last) 2-day M21 A-meet victory ever. ahr:175

Orienteering (terrain run) 33:00 [3] *** 4.71 km (7:00 / km)

ran down to the map exchange to cheer for boris, then back out on the map for some bonus running and cooldown.

Event: ROC A-Meet

Running (warmup/cooldown) 20:00 [3] 2.5 mi (8:00 / mi)

Orienteering race (race) 1:38:09 [4] *** 17.1 km (5:44 / km)

rochester a-meet blue1. dumb parallel error at #1 cost me big-time, though luckily the course was long and I had plenty of time to make that up by spiking all the rest. stupid stupid stupid. won the day by a few seconds over nick duca. ahr:176


now following matthias' example of recording length+10*climb for forest training. seems like a more accurate estimate of the effort [or additional distance around] involved. though I read somewhere that for men the climb:distance equivalent is more like 1:8, and 1:10 for women. and this way I don't get shafted on the mileage if I happen to do a lot of orienteering some week.

Running (terrain intervals) 18:05 [5] 3.9 km (4:38 / km)

6x~650m. almost getting too dark to do at this time. its been 3 weeks since I was last on the loop, it looks a little different with the leaves starting to fall. equal rest.

knees taking some abuse at this pace, maybe next time I'll do double-loops instead.


spike asked for more info about the wild beasts of the blue hills. I just did some web-stalking and found a list of state mammals. I see that there are moose in massachusetts (wasn't sure about that). BH is certainly large enough for a few to hide in. I also saw a lot of deer on sunday, but they all ran away quietly. so my guess is that it was one or more moose that was moo-ing madly


from daddy-o: "My reference says moose mate in September and October. The cows lure the bulls with 'grunting and mooing love calls'".

Running 57:11 [3] 8.23 mi (6:57 / mi)

(rhr:43) up to north beacon st and back. ahr:156


I was just leaving a 2nd floor meeting in some campus building(14) this morning when firemen in biohazard suits came in to collect a delivery from that someone had apparently opened on the 3rd floor. how nice.
