Orienteering race 1:02:50 [3] *** 2.9 km (21:40 / km) +162m 16:56 / km
ahr:95 max:126 spiked:11/11c shoes: INOV8 Bare Grips

The long Pre-Possum at Heartland Center. So good to do Orienteer Kansas races. I can focus better when I don't have to work, also. No major mistakes, but two bad route choicesj--one over 5 minutes and the other a shortie. Also, when going from 1 to 2 on the trail, there were lots of down trees across the trail, and I stayed on the west side. I think it would have been better to just go up the hill a bit and stay on the east side.

The bad route choice was 6 to 7, when I stayed on the trail more, but went way out of the way. I knew where I was--I should have done more cross-country. Also, from 10 to 11, I lost my focus and took the longer trail into 11. Otherwise, good navigation and I had lots of fun.

9Round 32:00 [5]
ahr:115 max:135 shoes: Skechers GoFit

A tough workout, without a lot of Burpees on Burpee Friday. I sweated big time. Then, I signed up for two more years on the Black Friday special, since that was what I got two years ago. This will make me 76. Can I still do this?

Dog Walking 24:02 [3] 2.02 km (11:54 / km) +15m 11:28 / km
ahr:127 max:151 rhr:55 shoes: Skechers GoFit

After recycling, we went to Riverfront Trail for our walk. In the confusion of signing up for two more years, I forgot to change my shoes.

When we parked, I saw two women with what looked like a doodle. So I asked. Turned out to be Missy and daughter, Meghan. Her husband did my knee surgery, but I hadn't seen them in almost a year. They were taking care of their neighbor's doodle, Walter. Elray and Walter did a typical doodle play thing, then we walked to the road and back. How fun!

Workout 1:00:00 [3]
ahr:101 max:157

A morning workout with my trainer. We are using heavier weights to maximize fat burn and strength. I also had several spikes in my heart rate. Especially at the end with three reps of a circuit, squats (easy), battle ropes (harder) and running up the ramp. But I always walk down to save my knees.

ahr:108

Putting out controls for the Possum Trot on Sunday. Lots of walking up and down the road, but all the controls were in the forest. One had an orange tape, which confused me, because all the others were hot pink. So I wandered a bit before double checking it. At least I knew I was in the right area. Then the last one was tough, because of all the different trails. It was supposed to be in an area that was rough open with scattered trees, but the trees weren"t really very scattered, and they were junipers, so visibility was poor. But I found it, walked all the way back to the car, and met Bob for lunch in Liberty. It was good to get out in the woods.

ahr:110 max:122 shoes: Skechers GoFit

Not so aerobic, but really hit the core. Round 7 with the swasher was not a good time. Today's CHOW was 10 jab/cross with weights and two lunges. I did 11.

Mack Porter Park. The back road in is open again, and they moved the big crane over to the Jesse James Park side. They were working on the bridge while we were there.

ahr:114 max:135 shoes: INOV-8 Trail Talon 225

A two-fer. Walked Elray, and scouted out which shelter to use for my course setting at Lake Jacomo. I visited 6 different shelter, checking for amenities. All had electric, but none had porta-potties, so I guess we get to rent. I mostly stayed on the grass and roads, because Bob gave Elray a bath last night, and wouldn't appreciate my trashing her out.
