Friday Jul 23 #

Note

Mowed the lawn.

The next week or so is expected to be hot. My plan will be to get up early a couple of times and do some sort of jog before the temps get miserable. The low temps for the next few days are forecast for the upper 70s. I may also do a few easy bike rides to move around a bit, especially on days when I don't get out the door early in the morning.

I got out the door early - well before 7. Sweaty and warmer than I'd like, but not too terrible.

Jogged after work. I don't like this weather. My body doesn't deal with heat very well. Still, it felt good to get out and get a little bit of exercise.

MTB cycling 50:00 [1]

Went for an easy bike ride with Mary after work. I planned to go for a jog, but we learned that a marker we'd ordered for a newly planted tree at the arboretum was in place. We biked out to find it and check it out. We got it as a small memory in honor of Mary's parents. The little marker has their names and "to continue sharing their love of the outdoors." It's a nice spot - overlooking the larger pond and quite close to a tree with a marker in my Dad's memory. The tree is a "pond cypress."

We got some sad news last night. Paul C died on Friday. He will be greatly missed both as a friend and as an orienteer.

Paul made a number of maps for PTOC. He completely updated Shawnee Mission Park, did a bunch of work at JCCC, and mapped Lexington Lake. His most recent map was Meadowbrook Park where PTOC held their annual meeting + sprint orienteering about a month or so ago. That was the last time I saw and chatted with Paul (mostly about mapping). Paul was also a great volunteer at events. You could count on him sticking around after a run and helping pick up controls.

Paul was also a nice person - interesting and friendly.

I'm really sad that he's gone.

I jogged through a course on the Lindley Hall map. We got out before it was hot, but it was sweaty. The KU campus has had a lot of little changes since we made the map - changes in vegetation and some of the paved areas. Most of the changes are small. We really need to think about updating the map.

MTB cycling 50:00 [1]

I went out in the heat of the day and did a few errands. One errand was picking up a new pair of running shoes (Saucony Ride) at Ad Astra. One of the features of the Ride is that I will "feel faster."

running 1:15:00 [2]

Yuck. This was not good. I shuffled around slowly. My h.r. gradually went up and up as my pace went down and down. I took some extra walking breaks. I drank the water I had with me. I searched for shady routes. But it just felt worse and worse. The dew point was 75. So that's part of it. But I also didn't sleep normally last night.

I ran on West Campus and the main campus.

Can you see the Orienteer Kansas connection to the 2022 WOC in Denmark?
