Orienteering race 3:16:51 [4] 13.81 km (14:15 / km) +255m 13:03 / km
ahr:105 max:139 shoes: INOV-8 Roclite 270

Bing-Orienteering at Ft. Leavenworth. Lots of fun, and a really good distance workout for me. I did very little running because I needed to save my breath for all the climb. I didn't have to stop and catch my breath going up hills, which is a nice change. I spent much too long on 34, and went overtime. I also found 24, but couldn't find it on my punch card, so I punched it in the free space. Then my punch must not have registered on 25, but I knew I was there. I feel down hard once, fortunately it was on my left knee, and I'm ok now. A couple of place were very scary--going downhill from 32 to 31, then trying to get to the stream to cross it--lots of piled up logs I had to climb over, very slowly. The area around 34 was also hazardous. It was a good effort and of course, the map is missing lots of things--buildings, trails, roads, and has no scale, so distances are estimates. But still lots of fun.

Spent about 20 minutes putting out controls and prizes for the O'Bunny, then picking controls back up afterwards. Strangely enough, I have taken over 13000 steps today and not gone anywhere. And my feet are tired, too.

9Round 32:00 [4]

Well, I spiked again today. Not good. Otherwise, a good and challenging workout. We had a special challenge--Extreme Burpees, and I did 19 in three minutes.

9Round 32:00 [5]
ahr:115 max:175 shoes: INOV-8 Alltrain 215

My heart rate did a spike today, for the first time in about a month or so. Not good, but I just had an EKG and it was good. This was round 1 and we did a bunch of enhanced rope jumping. When I saw how high it was, I slowed down and did lunges instead. The rest of the workout was ok, but challenging.

Dog Walking 16:07 [2] 1.27 km (12:41 / km) +5m 12:26 / km
ahr:92 max:131 shoes: INOV-8 Roclite 270

This was the woods loop at Mack Porter. I have a lot of prep for tomorrow's Easter celebration, so I wanted short. The first loop, clockwise, was very slow -- 10.5 minutes because we just walked and sniffed. The second loop, counterclockwise, but also with Elray, we alternated walking and slogging and only took five and a half minutes. Wow! Then I came home, had chocolate milk for recovery, and am gearing up for heavy duty house cleaning.

Workout 1:00:00 [2]

Not as tough this week. I did a lot of agility stuff with the rings to get some fast feet going.

Yoga 1:00:00 [1]

Stretch & Strengthen. Lissi wasn't here today, so we had a substitute. A bit easier, but still a great stretch.

I had to go to the doctor this morning for my annual Medicare physical. Except for a bit of congestion (hay fever season), and my ongoing osteopenia, everything was very good. I nailed the mental thing, and I was down 8 pounds from last year. We had to draw a clock again this year.

Since I wasn't supposed to eat ahead of time, we went to a new place for brunch afterward, and I had crab, tomato, and avocado benedict. Very good.

9Round 32:00 [4]
ahr:114 max:137 shoes: INOV-8 Alltrain 215

A pretty tough day. Lots of time in the yellow. The last round was a killer--20 Russian twists, 10 twisting V-up, both while holding a medicine ball, and 6 froggies. And repeat.
9 AM

Dog Walking 35:35 [2] 2.34 km (15:12 / km) +24m 14:28 / km
ahr:105 max:138 shoes: INOV-8 Roclite 270

Across the bridge and the east loop and back. Elray was not very cooperative today--she wanted to roll in the grass. My right leg is still very sore, but today was not any worse than yesterday when I did a long one.

Slogging 1:20:49 [3] 8.1 km (9:59 / km) +76m 9:32 / km
ahr:79 max:138 shoes: GORUN5

Counterclockwise around Wilson Lake at Watkins Mill, plus an extra kilometer back and forth. I have a bruise from yesterday that's about 2x4 in inches, or 5x10 in centimeters, and it's sore. I wanted to run, but when I broke into a run, it made my bruised area hurt, so I had to satisfy myself by fast walking, which I did. I did average 10/min/km for the while 8 km.
