Orienteering race (Red course) 2:58:17 [3] 6.24 mi (28:34 / mi) +1732ft 22:37 / mi
slept:8.0 shoes: Salomon Speedcross (2014)

Ugh -- this was REALLY hard for me physically, due to the steepness. I kind of just gave up and slowed down to an unmotivated trudge after #6.

Two DUMB mistakes: leaving #5, I followed the wrong drainage, which was steep and full of thick vegetation. Wasted lots of time there. And then, since I hadn't learned my lesson, I did the same thing when I approached #6, which was not as steep but still full of thick vegetation. Good grief.

I also had trouble in the rocky areas (#8 and #10).

Looking at the graph, it appears that I was way behind Kris for the entire race, but ahead of Paula until the very last leg. Sigh...

Administration 6:00:00 [0]
slept:8.0 weight:127lbs

- Printed & picked up a new batch of start cards at Kinko's, including a new lime green version for people who don't pre-register. Email back-and-forths about possible new process to insure that maps for pre-registered people are prioritized ahead of those for the non-pre-registered people.

- Other email follow-ups (questions about meet, registration changes, people who missed the registration deadline, etc.).

- Generated OE2010 import files for tomorrow's meet at White Ranch (this took a lot longer than usual, since I had to update my OE2003 query to match the new OE2010 file layout and I'm not very familiar with how OE2010 works; I never got the Class import to work...).

- A-Meet follow-up -- sorted out leftover medals & plaques. Disassembled and organized unused plaque components. Covered stickers on unused medals. Mailed replacement sticker to Linda Moore.

Administration (General) 8:00:00 [0]

A full eight hours of catching up on website updates for RMOC & the Zombie meet, along with tons of email follow-ups. My inbox was >400 and my goal was to get it to <300. I called it quits at 299. :-P

Run / Hike 55:32 [1] 3.12 mi (17:48 / mi)
slept:8.0 weight:127lbs shoes: Brooks Adrenaline (2014)

Neighborhood walk (walk rather than run due to lingering calf pain). Calf felt worse when I got home and throughout the night, so I might have overdone it...
