orienteering race 1:10:06 [4] 8.1 km (8:39 / km)
ahr:152 max:172 shoes: Integrators

Last day at the Pig, classic. Red course. Again very frustrating. Just couldn't move well, combination of bad traction, hills, and underbrush in places. Got a branch in the other eye a little past halfway, took a little bit to be sure the contact was gone and not just hiding up in a corner. Fortunately I had my rogaine glasses with me in the back pocket of my shorts. Although the optics are a little different and take some getting used to, still a vast improvement over no distance vision at all. Feeling my age again, and finding myself thinking, how bad would I feel if I wasn't in good shape?

A fine weekend for the Trials, and good progress on Team stuff, but my own orienteering left a lot to be desired.

Routes, comments to follow.

orienteering race 40:12 [4] 4.4 km (9:08 / km)
shoes: Integrators

Red course (also women's Trials course) at the Pig. Very frustrating day, both physically and technically. Couldn't get moving or keep moving, it seemed. Must have fallen 20 times. Plus got a solid jolt to the inside corner of my left eye socket, just missed the eyeball but still left it sore and red. Definitely feeling my age.

Warm-up, out to the start and a bit more.

orienteering race 19:48 [5] 2.6 km (7:37 / km)
shoes: Integrators

Flying Pig Sprint. Legs felt good, ran hard, but it took a few minutes before the brain turned on and by then I'd already blown off a minute.

Warm-up, not enough.

trail running 46:01 [3]
weight:139lbs shoes: Air Max Trail

Trails on Greenfield ridge. Now about 99% bare ground, really pleasant, except you have to pay attention to the rocks, especially along the top of the ridge leading to Sachem Head. But the good footing feels some much nicer after a couple of months of slipping and sliding.

part trail, part woods 1:02:36 [3]
weight:139lbs shoes: Air Max Trail

With Phil in Montague, maybe 40 minutes woods, 10 minutes rough open, 10 minutes trail. Nice day, nice outing, mellow pace since Phil is ailing. Even remembered to tie my glasses on since these days they tend to go flying at the slightest provocation.

trail running 1:00:34 [3]
weight:140lbs shoes: Air Max Trail

A lot more bare ground, although the places covered with ice were slicker than usual. Was planning to do a bit longer, but was short of time (which was my own fault, didn't get out the door quick enough when I had my chance). Getting lots of training in the past 2 months, but not enough longer runs. That may become evident the next two Sundays.

trail running 56:13 [3]
weight:140lbs shoes: Air Max Trail

Trails on Greenfield ridge, usual loop, now probably 70% bare ground. Dismal day, light rain, upper 30s, but got out before the heavy rain started and the run was quite pleasant.
