running 1:30:00 
Easy jogging on the trails on the south shore of Clinton. First time for the season on the south trails. The trails weren't too overgrown, but wearing long pants to protect my legs from vegetation was the right choice.
I started at the trail head a bit south west of the radio tower at Rockcrusher. The further west I went, the better the trails got.
I took a break near the end to help a couple of horse riders search for a lost fitbit. No luck, but I ended up chatting with one of them about the orienteering maps. I gave them a copy of both the Rockcrusher and Rockhaven maps.
My legs didn't feel good for the first hour or so, then things started to feel better and I actually felt less tired than I did in the beginning.
I carried the 2 O' map and a KP map based on the newest lidar. I'm especially interested in how that new data handles the vegetation. It seems pretty good. My current plan is to create a single map of the entire area from the dam to just west of Rockhaven. In the past, I did that as two different maps. Largely the new map will be based on data from those existing maps + some stuff I can get from the newer lidar (like vegetation).
I did a bit of jogging around to put out controls for today's event at Fort Leavenworth and then a bunch of standing and sitting at the start and at the registration. It is tiring.
Lessons from this year's Fort Leavenworth/OK co-hosted event:
Good thing that I brought a headlamp to put out the first controls. It is dark at 7 a.m.
Double or triple check that the controls are all loaded in the car.
The mini-course (11 controls, 800 meters, 1:2500 map of the area around Gruber Gym) was a good idea.
Plenty of people show up right at 8 a.m.
Share the specific plans for putting out controls with Connie.
One or two more people to help put out controls wasn't necessary, but wouldn't have been bad.
One other person to help explain SI-punching wasn't necessary, but wouldn't have been bad.
Course lengths seemed about right (800 meters for the mini, 2.5 for short, 5.5 for long).
Fritz was a big help - he ran all three courses (and all three from memory rather than using the map) and was a big help picking up controls.
rowing 20:00 
A little bit of time on the rowing machine.
Also, loaded up the car for tomorrow. We have to be on the road at 6 a.m. I'd like to sleep later than that...oh well. I remembered to charge my headlamp. It'll still be dark when I'm putting out controls.
cycling 45:00 
Work commute. I rained a bit on the trip to the office.
running 30:00 
Jogged around on West Campus. I felt pretty good.
cycling 45:00 
Instead of running, I got a bunch of stuff ready for the event Saturday at Fort Leavenworth and made dinner.
cycling 45:00 
Work commute. Still a bit warm-ish in the morning (maybe 70 at 7 a.m.). But some cooler weather moved through and the high today was much more comfortable than yesterday.
Work was a bit strange. I discovered that a recommendation I'd made and management had told me they weren't doing (and didn't seem to have any interest in doing) is actually something that they are doing. Strange that they wouldn't tell me that. Not sure if they are just confused or trying to be deceptive. The good thing is that they are making the change.
running 25:00 
Shuffled around on West Campus. I didn't really feel like going and it took a while to get out the door. But, running felt good.
