Running (Street & Trail) 22:08  2.2 mi (10:04 / mi) +35m 9:35 / mi
From Northfield Rd., to Huntington Pkwy., to Irvington Ave., to Roosevelt St., to Ewing St., to Greentree Rd., to Heampstead Ave., to McKinley St., to Garfield St., to Roosevelt St., to Jefferson St., to Northfield Rd. I got Samantha to go along with me as I ran at an easy pace. She was on her bicycle of course. She was slow to get going again but later she was more confident and capable. She decided to stop near her old school and I kept running. She caught up and finished a slightly longer route to avoid a bumpy trail. It was the first hot and humid day; close to 90 F or higher. However the sun was behind the clouds and it wasn't bad. I still felt slow.
Bicycling (Street & Trail) 33:03  2.91 mi (11:21 / mi) +31m 11:00 / mi
I rode around the neighborhood somewhat randomly with Samantha, as she was getting used to riding he bicycle again. She was afraid of starting off, and then when going downhills. We turned around a bit here and there. Basically we went out McKinley St. to Ewing St., to Greentree Rd., to Heampstead Ave., made a detour to Bradmoor St., the up Roosevelt St., to Grant St., and to Northfield Rd. We were stopping and starting a bit and the pace was slower than I'd normally walk.
Running (Street & Trail) 20:18  2.2 mi (9:14 / mi) +30m 8:51 / mi
From Northfield Rd. Max and I I ran up to Custer Rd., to Wilson La., to Exeter Rd. to Glenbrook Rd. to the Bethesda Trolley Trail, to the NIH grounds, to Maple Ridge Rd. to Georgetown Pike, to Huntington Pkwy., to Custer Rd. to Northfield Rd. I didn't feel like I was trying harder but we were easily running faster than we last did together.
Running (Street & Trail) 21:23  2.24 mi (9:33 / mi) +18m 9:19 / mi
From the Adventure Playground Parking Lot in the South Germantown Recreational Park and Maryland Soccer Complex, I ran around lightly overlooking areas that I'd planned to field check after my run. I didn't do any field checking the day before, and I didn't plan to get into the forest a lot partly since for several days after the previous week I had kept finding ticks on me, and I had several tick bites. I also knew that the late spring vegetation was getting too high and tick for me to be effective. The run was nice and lots of people were all over the places where I ran.
Orienteering (Field Checking) 4:46:43  6.61 mi (43:23 / mi) +134m 40:48 / mi
From the Adventure Playground Parking Lot in the South Germantown Recreational Park and Maryland Soccer Complex, I field checked most of the areas south of Schaeffer Rd.. The early parts of this were in thick woods and tall grasses. I found a few features but I wouldn't expect these areas to get used very much. The map is thin in this area and it's in the extreme south of areas I'd planned to include. However, I did find some oddities. One unused path across a stream had been expected. There was a concrete bridge for it. Later I found a completely different one that apparently had no connected trail. There were also some odd copse in a big field. Two of these had hidden paved areas inside them (they were big enough to have open mapable forest in them). Other parts of the terrain had been manually sculpted for drainage, old roadbeds, and picnic grounds. Despite bringing 3 pairs of spare batteries for my GPS, all of them failed. The areas were mostly contoured enough or within sight of things i had picked up from satellite photos that I felt effective mapping using my eye. My watch GPS still worked and that helped too. I got to an area that photos had shown to be under construction. I also covered parts of the park which photos had shown to be under construction. A professional looking cricket field had been built there with a road and a parking lot. I walked this to let my handheld GPS pick it up and using my notes, I got enough to get a pretty accurate sketch. I finished-up by going through parts of the soccer field complex that I hadn't field checked earlier.
