Orienteering race 38:25 [5] 2.9 km (13:15 / km) +160m 10:23 / km
shoes: Spirit OLX (last)

Westchester Middle Brown. I had a terrific run, no real errors, good speed, feeling strong and in control. Coming down the hill from 5 I was farther right than I thought, so things weren't looking right. I slowed down and hit the trail, and the big boulder was clearly visible. On the long led to 14 I went straight over the hill, but the trail was clearly better.

Road running (Hill repeats) 49:41 [3] 5.1 mi (9:44 / mi)
shoes: Adrenaline 17 2nd

1.5 mile warmup, then 6 x hills @30-35s, 1 min jog back down. Then another 3 miles on the road. That part is hard, even keeping an easy pace after the hills.

Road running 40:32 [3] 4.4 mi (9:13 / mi)
shoes: Adrenaline 17 2nd

New shoes today! My old pair just crossed 400 miles. I looked online for another pair but Adrenaline 17s are almost gone. But it turns out my local RnJ Sports had my size at the online price (about 40% off). The Adrenaline 18s are in stores, but it seems like they've gone back to the stiffer soles and weaker uppers like the 16s, which didn't work for me. Glad to get the last pair.

Butterflies this run: red-spotted purple (2). First of these I've seen this year.

Orienteering race 1:47:02 [4] 8.3 km (12:54 / km) +255m 11:11 / km
shoes: IceBug Olx 4

Fountainhead West Red. Long, hot, hilly course in my favorite local terrain. My navigation was great and speed was good, up until the leg 10-11, which seemed to go through the twilight zone. I never saw the main NE-SW trail, but I crossed it somewhere, saw a control and surmised that I was in the little reentrant SW of the control, and I was. Then, a little spooked, I decided to take the trail around from 11 to 12, but something went wrong just after curving around the last big reentrant. Not sure of where I was any more, I headed towards the rounded spur leading to the control but found myself on the next spur to the north. Straightforward from there. But I lost time on both of those legs. Pretty tired on the long run in up the skinny part of the map that connects to the Bull Run parking lot. I stuck mostly to the trail in that section but took a shortcut to the finish.
