9Round 32:00 [4]
ahr:112 max:127 shoes: Skechers GoFit

Feeling better and back to training. I still have lots of fluid in my lungs, but deep breathing on Burpee Friday loosened things up a lot. And I didn't dog it, either, I kept on trucking.

Dog Walking 10:28 [2] 0.53 km (19:45 / km)
shoes: INOV8 TrailRoc 235

Our usual Friday recycling and walk in the park. A brisk wind was blowing sleet around, and I am convalescing, so we cut the walk pretty short. I need to get over this congestion before next weekend.

Note
(sick)

Had a terrible night trying to breathe. So I finally gave in and took a day off to rest. And had a massage. That made me feel much better.

9Round 32:00 [4]
ahr:112 max:129 shoes: Skechers GoFit

Such a nice day, we started the first round by running to the mailbox and back. A little problem with breathing because of chest congestion, but did my best.
4 PM

Workout 1:00:00 [4]
ahr:113 max:137 shoes: INOV8 TrailRoc 235

Pushed the sled tonight. I could really feel this one, partially because I am so congested.

Definitely felt like I was working harder than this. Kept my 116 on the CHOW from yesterday and did the alternate round

Watkins Mill clockwise to the third bridge and back. Thirty-one minutes out and twenty-five minutes back. Started out in the sixties, and almost eighty degrees when we finished.

Angela, the owner, was the trainer this morning. I hadn't seen her in a long time, but it was really good. She gave me some tips on some of the moves we usually do. I also did well on the CHOW--this week it's a deep squat with low hook, then high hook. And repeat.

Orienteering 1:53:54 [5] *** 4.2 km (27:07 / km) +143m 23:10 / km
ahr:122 max:146 spiked:4/8c shoes: INOV8 Bare Grips

Not that good. Three major mistakes. I think I had picked a good route choice to 1, but somehow lost focus on the last moment on the trail and went way north. Eventually, I knew I had gone too far, figured out where I was, and backtracked right to the control.

Going from 3 to 4, I went over the spur, hit the trail, and went left when I should have gone right.

The worst one was 4 to 5, when I just wasn't tracking the right direction.

Lots of briars--got pretty bloody on my left arm. Also lots of boulder scrambling which is hard for me.

The good parts were that, in general (except for 4 to 5) my route choices were pretty good. Also I managed to stay hydrated and keep the blood sugar under control. I climbed some pretty steep hills, and didn't have to stop and catch my breath.

Need to get this together and focus, focus, focus for Texas. I can handle the briars--they can't be worse in Texas? And no boulder scrambling.

An interesting take on GPS. My daughter was going to meet me at the meet, but she couldn't get it on the GPS, and drove around a lot and got frustrated. I called her after I finished, and we met at the Arboretum and walked Frankie. She wanted to know how I had found Rockcrusher without GPS, and I told her, I looked at the map.

And thanks to Mary, I managed to download into Quickroute.

9Round 32:00 [4]
ahr:116 max:126 shoes: Skechers GoFit

Busy gym. Not sure the heart rate reflects reality. Yesterday I compared it with my Fitbit and the gym monitor was running 20-25 below. They used to compare fairly well.
10 AM

Dog Walking 33:06 [2] 2.27 km (14:35 / km) +18m 14:02 / km
shoes: INOV8 TrailRoc 235

Jesse James Park. We had a few side trips off the path into cross county. Beautiful day, and very few people out.
