Orienteer race 1:16:35 [3] 5.46 mi (14:02 / mi) +768ft 12:23 / mi
shoes: 1st Pair - Saucony Guide 2

Cherry Creek. A few bobbles with a ~7min wander on 14. Aside from 14, I found all of the controls easily. Sometimes my route wasn't ideal. Pauses on the way to 4. Veered off my inaccurate bearing from 5-6 and then was one knoll north. Too close to the marsh 6-7. Another sloppy bearing 7-8. Got hot and walked part of 8-9. Stopped to chug water between 9 and 10. 14 was bad- I was so close I probably would have seen it if I just turned around; Apparently Bryan had basically punched it in front of me and I still didn't see it and wandered around for a while. Slightly overshot 15. Pretty solid day. Highly runnable open course that suited me.

Social Run @ Salsa Brava. Haven't been to this one in almost 2 years even though its 1/2mi from my apt. Small group, but good food and beer discounts afterward. A slower group than the Monday night, but both are social and not really training. Hamstrings and calves still a bit sore from Sunday.

shoes: Mizuno Elixer

Pony Express! Volunteered for an hour w/ registrations then longest run ever + a bonus mile since I got lost (my fault, not the organizer's). We were supposed to keep the reservoir on our right the entire time and then I realized I hadn't seen it for at least 5min. Started out too fast, but settled into a good pace by mile 2. Went off course around mile 6.5 for about 10min. When I got back on course I ran 4 miles at trail 10k effort to make up for the lost time then blew up around mile 11. Learned a bunch, had fun, got a good workout. I have about 15min of easy gains next year since I was off course for 10min and then made a 5(+) minute pacing mistake and then my goal was just to beat the old lady. I'll be back for redemption next year. So I guess my race was more like 16miles than 15 so that's what I'm logging. I don't really trust my garmin #'s since it was twisty wooded singletrack. My legs were my major limiter today. The muscles in my inner quads and then just plain old foot pounding. Not a good thing when legs not lungs are the limiter in a flattish race at 9000. I was 2nd woman when I went off course and 15th at the finish (passed a handful back).
