Orienteering (Camp Horseshoe) 3:08:33 [3] 9.0 km (20:57 / km)

As Tom O said - brutal course in terms of climb and slippery rocks. Don't remember ever having done such a physical course. Advertised distance 8.6 k 195 m climb. I come up with 9.0 k and am told climb was twice as much.

Really felt fine throughout - breathing good considering the amount of climb. Made some minor errors (for me). Ran out of gas after 18 - of course, the longest leg was still to come and it included ANOTHER climb - on the road but still UPHILL. Submerged fully in creek on the way from 18-19. Used my GU at 13. Did I mention the amount of climb?

Running (Lake Accotink) 1:31:30 [3] 8.25 mi (11:05 / mi)

Around the lake twice - once in each direction - and up & back on the spur. Clockwise trip was 41:05 and counterclockwise was 42:51 (walked the last part to cool down). Splits where availabe were 510 501 623 1024 (mile) 529 and the other way were 503 1032 (m) 708 924 (m). My goal for the rest of this year is to break 40 minutes in either direction.

Head stuffy and then draining, but really not an issue.

My hip flexors are a bit sore. Rub some Sports Cream on the right one. Have not slept well lately and last night was no exception, even with the exercise.

Walking (Out to Bluemont on W&OD) 48:30 [1] 3.5 mi (13:51 / mi)

The work on the school behind my house is finally done, so I was excited to have the old easier way down to the bike trail available again. Well, it is not to be. The work they did on the side of the property has closed the route off for good. So, I ended up going through the woods. Not too pleasant without long pants and gaithers on.

Turns out this is the least of my problems. I am sluggish and my lungs are on fire with little effort. Decide since I have plenty of time tonight to walk to the turn around and decide then if I can run back home.

The measured half miles were 657 656 and 700. Stop at the turn around and loosen my shoes.

Running (Trip back from Bluemont) 38:00 [2] 3.5 mi (10:51 / mi)

My breathing has straightened out and the return trip is much more pleasant. Splits are 430 456 448 450 615 & 501 (the last 2 are actually a long half and a short half totaling 1 mile). Walk a bit of the last mile and then up the BIG hill.
