slept:7.0 weight:172lbs

Running with the MCRRC Ken-Gar group. From Mile Mark 7 to Spring Rd. and back on the Rock Creek Trail. I ran easy with Vasilli and some others. It was a nice morning. Besides races, we talked about religious stoning.

Running (Street & Trail) 45:47 [4] 6.46 mi (7:05 / mi)
slept:6.25 weight:170lbs

From Rosedale Ave., Maryland Ave to Jones Bridge Rd. to the NIH Trail to Georgetown Pike to Beech Ave. to Montomery Ave. to the Bethesda Trolley Trail to Grosvenor Rd. to the Rock Creek Trail to Cedar Rd. to Elmhirst Rd. to Wisconsin Ave. to Rosedale Ave via Maryland Ave. I procrastonated despite the lovely day out. Once out I felt good. I last did this route on 2/11/2005 and 3 lbs. heavier and 2 minutes slower. I mostly felt strong though it felt awkward trying to move my legs faster.

Running (Street & Trail) 1:04:21 [3] 8.05 mi (8:00 / mi)
slept:6.0 weight:172lbs

It was another very nice sunny 65F day with dogwoods and azaeleas in full bloom. I enoyed getting out especially after talking with my dad about his gradually more limited mobility. I ran where my feet took me down the Georgetown Branch Trail to Grubb Rd., Donneybrook Dr., unnamed trails and somewhat off trail into and through Rock Creek Park, Chestnut St. to Whitney St. to Shepard St. to Rosemary St. to Stanford St. to the Georgetown Branch Trail again, to Pearl/Maryland Ave and Rosedale. Legs were a bit heavy feeling but I felt strong on hills. I skipped-out on the MCRRC track workout because it looked like gridlock on the Pike.

Running warm up/down (Warm-up) 10:00 [3] 0.8 km (12:30 / km) +60m 9:05 / km

Jogging from the USMAOC West Point meet bus drop-off to the start. Peggy and I were once again confused on timing and missed the adjusted start.

Orienteering race (Foot) 1:25:04 [4] *** 8.64 km (9:51 / km) +405m 7:59 / km

Day 2 of the USMOC West Point Meet in NY on the Deep Hollow map. With another late and rushed start but a clearing day, I felt better. Though billed as a tougher day than Day 1 due to the climb, I thought it was a little easier--perhaps it was the weather. I made two main errors when not being careful running over ridges to controls on the other sides--#'s 2 and 6. Just as I recovered at #6, Andy Hall caught me. I had chaned my start time to avoid running a close race with Spike who's starting time was originally right behind mine on both days but ended-up running a close race with Andy from 6 through the finish; similar to what happened to me and Spike in Ohio. I felt I pulled my weight getting to some controls first. Andy paused less than I and his presence pushed me to run harder, perhaps straighter. Neither of us could pull away from the other enough. For the weekend with both races combined I managed to luck into winning M40+. This I attribute to some DNF's, others running-up on Blue, and errors others made. I hadn't even known I had won +M40 on Day 1 until after finishing Day 2. Winning anything in the NE is new to me so I guess I need to take it anyway I can get it... Several M45's and older beat my times both days so next year when I'm in that category it won't get much easier. See the Split List.
