Went to the JCC mainly because there is a cool new bike route there and back. Its a one way street for cars but two ways for bikes. Finished up at home so I could be there to help B unload the groceries.

A little jog in the park to see if muscles, joints, tendons, ligaments, and cartilage were still working. They are! Mostly on grass. Looked for hills here and there.

Went to the Y. One machine was busted. Did the leg press. Backed off 10# due to long lay-off. Can go up 5# next visit. Added planks, side and front. Pretty crowded today around 4:30 PM. Next year, Medicare Advantage plan changes and I will have to choose between the Christians and the Jews.

Orienteering race (Sprint) 18:10 [5] 1.5 mi (12:07 / mi) +24m 11:32 / mi
ahr:148 max:182 shoes: VJ Falcons 10

Blew second control by running past it. Maybe I wasn't used to the scale. Lost a minute+ and found George, who had started one minute behind me, just in front of me. Kind of interesting following him which was a unique experience for me. Didn't know if I should give up or keep pressing. Managed to get a little separation and punched 6 before him. But then really blew 9 as I never saw the trail. Saw George coming a right angles to me and figured he had found it so looped to the left an finally found the trail. I may not have been totally locked in to the trail symbol on sprint maps. Had a quick route to 10 and on the way to 11 encountered George coming back toward me. So then I thought I still had a chance to beat him. 11, 12, and 13 were easy as I had seen them earlier when walking around. 14 fooled me but I figured it out quickly without actually reading the clue sheet. Waited after the finish punch to see when George would come in and if I got my minute back. (I did.) A pretty lame run overall. Wish I had more opportunities to run sprints as I think with practice I'd be pretty good at them. GPS route on RouteGadget.
