At Rockhaven - a mix of trails and forest.
orienteering 25:00  ***
Checking a few control locations for an upcoming event + collecting mini-makers + setting mini-markers.
This was the first test of my new orienteering pants. Mary helped me, but I did a bunch of cutting and sewing. Mary made and adjusted the pattern and told me what to do and how to sew things. We made the pants with supplex. Supplex is pretty good for O' pants around here. They provide a little bit more protection than regular O' pants. The difficult thing with supplex is to get pants that are not super-baggy. Mary made a pattern that wasn't super-baggy.
The only downside to the pants, based on my first test run, is that they are purple. Mary had a bunch of purple supplex. The next pair will be in a better color, probably black.
Left calf felt almost normal.
Also, I didn't see the area mountain lion: http://cjonline.com/news/2016-12-03/marc-murrell-m...
orienteering 1:40:00  *** +220m
Jogging around the Ft Leavenworth "Tinsel 20" score orienteering. Felt slow.
I stopped at a few places to add some notes for map updates. The maps is lidar + some additions from air photos + some GPS tracks for trails. It isn't bad, but it isn't field checked. Every time I do a course, I find a few changes and add them.
They had chili at the finish. That was a pleasant surprise on a chilly day.
Fritz ran the long version (Forsty 40). Sandy did something, but she started after I was out and wasn't back when I left.
rowing 20:00 
Row, row. It seemed really hot in the house. Then I realized I forgot to turn on the fan that points at the rowing machine.
Two days of no running. That should be good for the left calf that was feeling off.
I didn't ride my bike the last two days either. That's because I was an a conference in O.P. and had to drive. That was ok. This morning I stopped and bought gas on the way to O.P. I'm pretty sure the last time I bought gas was in early September.
cycling 45:00 
Work commute. The warmest part of the day was my ride to work.
I was planning to jog on West Campus, taking it easy. But, first, I'd make sure my car had gas and was ready to drive to O.P. tomorrow. Maybe it'd need gas. Since I'm first on the agenda tomorrow a.m., I wanted to go out and get gas if I needed. Instead, it turns out the battery was dead. A quick bit of trouble shooting, then a trip to Walmart to get a new battery. Replace the battery and problem solved. But, now it was a bit late to get in my run.
cycling 45:00 
A little bit of crazy traffic on the trip - both before and after work.
Was planning a short jog in the evening. But then my left calf tightened up during the day and I changed my mind. Rest + watching basketball instead of running.
