Pecan pie's in the oven--excuse me, make that a maple pecan pie.
5 PM

Orienteering 46:56 [3] *** 2.6 km (18:01 / km) +68m 15:57 / km
spiked:10/12c shoes: Jala Jukola Spider 6 #3

Short Night-O course at Ratlum, nominally 2.0 km. Once I got my lights and figured out where north was I could figure out the trails to 1. Took trail around the long way to 2, but then decided to try to bash through the green to 3 (bad decision; made the same bad decision last time here. Stayed in the green again 3-4, rather than cutting through the fenced area. All much slower in the dark, of course :-) ). Otherwise no major problems though I would have left the trail sooner to 8 in daylight. Bashed my shin on the hill climb to 11; ran around the barn at 12 (control was on "outside corner" but actually slightly up a small hill from the corner and I was looking down, not up).

On the trail on my way to 4, someone was headed the other way saying "I should go to 3 before 13" (someone on the longer course, whose 3 was the same as mine, and whose 13 was my 4).

I was just going to add it was an uneventful drive home, but then remembered the meteor that both Glen and I saw as we left Winsted, headed west on Rt 44 in CT. Lucky, maybe?

Thanks to Charlie for the courses, and to both C & R for their gracious hospitality.

Walked to the P.O. to mail a bill and some cards; bought some more 'forever' stamps (before the price goes up a penny each, big savings!). Not logging as I wasn't pushing it.

Also, heard a Christmas-y song on local NPR station, which sounded quite disturbing, as it was "Silver Bells" smashed with/sung over the instrumentals for "Every Breath You Take". Here's the explanation.

About 3-4" of wet snow on top of rain-soaked ground (I heard 1.5" or rain). Supposed to be in low 40s and sunny later--maybe it'll go away again.
10 AM

Pilates class 55:00 [1]

No tools; lots of upper body which I modified when I could.
11 AM

Running (treadmill) warm up/down 5:40 [3] 0.5 mi (11:20 / mi)
shoes: Saucony Shadow 6000 8.5 #4-Y

Warming up for intervals, but legs felt heavy so stopped after 1/2 mile. Switched to walking and upping the incline (and switched treadmills too as the one I was on had the 'stop' button stick when I hopped off to retrieve a renegade pad of paper and it wouldn't restart).

Walking (treadmill) 29:41 [2] 2.0 mi (14:50 / mi)
shoes: Saucony Shadow 6000 8.5 #4-Y

Walking/hiking, starting with 0.5 mi at 3.5% incline; 0.5 mi @ 5%; then quarter miles at 3, 8, 3, 5.

Walking warm up/down (treadmill) 4:31 [1] 0.25 mi (18:05 / mi)
shoes: Saucony Shadow 6000 8.5 #4-Y

9 AM

Exerc. Class 55:00 [1]

Didn't feel quite as energetic today, maybe because I woke early and couldn't get back to sleep. Good continuous motion workout, though.

Tuesday Dec 6, 2011 #

10 AM

Pilates class 55:00 [1]

Resistance bands.
11 AM

Fitness equipment (elliptical) 45:00 [2]
shoes: Saucony Shadow 6000 8.5 #4-Y

Hill program level 2. 1.90 miles
MHR 140 but mostly was in the 115-125 range

9 AM

Exerc. Class 55:00 [1]

Legs felt remarkably sprightly in class today despite the multiple races this weekend. And it's so warm out that I think I need to get a walk in today too--how could I waste mid 50s on Dec 5th?
4 PM

Walking (paved) 31:00 [3] 2.0 mi (15:30 / mi)
shoes: Saucony Shadow 6000 #6 - H

MB CC and back. Since it was fairly late (as sunlight goes), I wore a white shirt and reflective armbands. Seemed to work; people saw me and sometimes even made room.

11 AM

Orienteering race 1:12:53 [4] *** 5.1 km (14:17 / km) +118m 12:49 / km
spiked:11/12c shoes: Jala Jukola Spider 6 #3

Green course at Sessions, set by Bill Duncan. Nice course, though I had to distract myself on the uphill slog from 11-12 by looking around for features along the way. :-) [there's that reentrant; oh, there's that cliff face...] A little trouble finding the correct boulder group at 12.

EDIT: FR -- 5.866 km

"errors" on AP splits, besides on 12, mostly just reflect slow-on-hills.

AOWN: Flushed a couple of birds in the woods (didn't see what kind but heard a sound like pigeons or doves taking flight). On the drive home, 1 deer (had already crossed but I slowed anyway in case there were others), and 1 cat. :-)
