Two days in a row with no training (except walking up to the 3rd floor for coffee).
Met with the GTA for the course I'm teaching at KU this Fall. The semester starts next week. I'm feeling under prepared, but in better shape than I was a couple of days ago. The first two weeks are on-line only.
Also, I bought a mini-pump for my MTB. After some discussion with the folks at Sunflower, we decided it wouldn't be completely worthless. My other pump was completely worthless. I'm hoping this is better than worthless.
orienteering 25:00 
Mary and I met Nadim at JCCC and shuffled around a sprint course. The map needs to be updated with some new construction. On-going construction made some route choice options unavailable. Fun, but after about 12-13 minutes of running I was feeling overheated.
We had a nice dinner and chat afterwards.

I shuffled around on West Campus, including 2 x half Ulrik's Hill. My legs felt ok and I got out before it was hot.
From the US Orienteering Team Facebook page:
"Congratulations Morton, Anton and Greg on your 20th place in the relay! This is the best placing for the men in 40 years!!!"
The 2019 performance was great. But, seems a stretch to say best place in 40 years when Platt, Hollowell, Childs and Weyman were 14th in Hungary in 1983.
MTB cycling 55:00 
MTB on the bike path - went out to Clinton to check the lake level. It is the lowest it has been in a while, but it is still well above normal. You still can't get out to Sanders Mound.

Slow jogging on West Campus. We had a good bit of rain last night. Temp was comfortable, feet were soaked. When the sun comes out, it is going to get steamy.
I got home in time to watch the WOC women's relay. You can use the VPN in the Opera browser to watch the SVT coverage. I was pleasantly surprised. I've got some work to do, but it will wait until after the men's race finishes.

Short jog on West Campus.
