Orienteering 44:58 [3] 6.1 km (7:22 / km)
ahr:147 max:170 shoes: inov8 Bare-Grip 200

Green Course- Mid Atlantics, 6th on green
Tentative after yesterday's 20+ km effort on the Two Rivers Adventure Race.
My legs were flat but it helped me focus on making good route choices. I am very happy with the result considering the lack of training I have done and coming off yesterday.
Ran with inov8 bare-grips one more time as they are very comfortable... but not much holding them together at this point.

Today I ran an orienteering course that went from MD to PA to MD
Yesterday I ran an adventure race that went from PA to DE to PA.

Orienteering 8:14 [3] 1.7 km (4:51 / km)
shoes: inov8 Bare-Grip 200

1st leg of relay
Poor coordination - was waiting at pavilion and realized start was by covered bridge. got there with 2 minutes remaining to hear it would be a full relay and I would hand off map to 2nd leg (I had no idea who was on my team) 15 seconds to go and Wyatt questioned that I was leg one. No to to check so I ran...
Did fairly well again considering what I covered this weekend and my lack of training. Finished about 30 seconds behind AJ (who passed me going uphill to 3 and then again to 4)
Finished, grabbed map to and waived it over my head asking who gets this :) (real professional)
Found out Greg Balter was the 3rd leg so I was happy do not fall behind too much but I don't think out 2nd leg did too well.

Two Rivers Adventure Race - 5 hr foot only

With minimal conditioning and no bike riding since last December I opted for the foot only. I was definitely concerned about my physical ability to finish (reasonably).
This was another great venue and I managed to clear the course in just under 4 hours. I was feeling really good in the first hour and cleared 10 controls.

With 3 controls left in that area I opted not to ford the creek and chose to run Rt 100. I maintained a reasonable pace and got two more controls in the southeast section as the two hour point passed (5 more controls)

Over the 3rd hour I cleared the remaining controls in the southeast and made it to control 12 in the section across the creek. Which, by the was was an awesome little stone chapel overlooking the Brandywine. I took a second glance back as I headed to 15 and saw the stone courtyard and steps.

In the fourth hour I cleared the remaining controls on the opposite side of the creek then crossed to pick up the remaining two before finishing. I'm glad I held off going into mid-thigh water until the end as it definitely impacted me. I began to feel tightening in my upper legs. I took the final two controls very cautiously.
I had changed my mind at 14 and decided to go for 10 first instead of 11. If I thought that out sooner I would have gone to 14 from 15 and picked up 13 on my way to 10.

Patty decided to give AR a try and picked up 12 controls in 4 hour 20 minutes in 12+km. She was happy and enjoyed the expirence. (always a good thing)

I'm looking forward to the next one and have a bit more resolve to condition before hand so the adventure is more relaxing :)

Satuday I ran an adventure race that went from PA to DE to PA.
Sunday I ran an orienteering course that went from MD to PA to MD
