Orienteering 1:22:28 [4] *** 2.8 km (29:27 / km) +95m 25:11 / km
spiked:10/15c shoes: INOV8 Bare Grips

Day 2 of the OINK at Camp Ernst. Just as brushy, but not as thorny. The 3,4,5, area was hard to read, so I took longer than I should have. At 5, I hit the fenceline and went the wrong way first. Then, no problems until I got to 13. A very poor route choice. What was I thinking? Overall, better than yesterday. Also, almost as steep, but I didn't have breathing problems.

Orienteering race 1:34:20 [4] *** 3.0 km (31:27 / km) +150m 25:09 / km
spiked:9/13c shoes: INOV8 Bare Grips

Day 1 of the OINK. A long, narrow park which had a ridge in the center and went mostly downhill on both sides. We mostly zigzagged across the ridge, but it was an interesting course, technically. I made a grievous error on five. this was probably the simplest control on the course, but I went into an OOB area, which, of course, had no topo. I wandered around for about 20 minutes, trying to find the control. I didn't see the DO NOT ENTER signs, but should have read my map enough to know that I didn't need to go over the fence. My route choice to 8 could have been better, but I didn't have too much trouble finding it. Then, going to 9, I ended up at 2, but it was a short jog back to 9. The biggest problem here was that it was very thorny, and I shed some blood over it. Lots of scratches, shoulders, thighs, fingers.

The last control and finish were up a steep hill. I had to stop twice to catch my breath at the end.

9Round 32:00 [5]
shoes: Skechers GoFit

Brian designed today's workout, and it was tough. We started by doing the battle ropes for a full three minutes, then had weights at round 2 and again at round 7. Plus the kettlebell at round 9. After all that, I went and had a massage. Now I'm feeling really good.
3 PM

9Round 1:00:00 [3]
ahr:108 max:147 shoes: GORUN5

Workout with my trainer. Heavy weights. We ended with 5000 ft on the rowing machine. I hadn't done that before.

Dog Walking 35:13 [2] 2.56 km (13:45 / km)

Jesse James Park. We went down the new road going in to see the bridges from this side. There are actually two bridges in series, but it was difficult to see how it worked because of all the heavy equipment blocking the view. Lots of workers today. We also went by all the decorated Christmas trees on the path.
8 AM

9Round 32:00 [4]
ahr:110 max:128 shoes: Skechers GoFit

First two rounds were tough--then it was easier.

9Round 32:00 [5]
ahr:110 max:143 shoes: Skechers GoFit

I thought it was a little tough today. Lots of weight lifting in push up position, and plank stuff. The CHOW was a jab, cross, hook, hook, up-down. I did 37 in three minutes.
9 AM

Dog Walking 24:04 [2] 1.57 km (15:20 / km)
ahr:111 max:138 shoes: GORUN5

We went to Mack Porter, and walked down to the new bridge. A really big excavator was working in the creek by the bridge. I'm not sure what else they are doing, because the bridge looks great. They just need a little paving on the approach. Then we finished walking around the circuit. I cut the walk a little short, because I could see a couple with two off-leash dogs going around the trail, and we took a different path back to the car.

1 PM


Spent about 2-1/2 hours walking around Lake Jacomo, and putting out tapes for my courses in February. I still have lots to do. I was glad I left Elray at home--I saw deer in three different locations. A lot of steep hillsides and a lot of rocks. I think I will feature rocks. I'm not sure how far I walked, but I ended the day at almost 15,000 steps.
