9 AM

9Round 32:00 [3]
ahr:113 max:129 shoes: INOV-8 Alltrain 215

A very busy gym this morning, and the workout was a bit easier than usual. Which was ok, because I am still sore from Thursday.

Friday Jan 24 #

(rest day)

Not having wheels is a real pain. We had snow last night and all day today. I have a sore backside from 9Round challenges and yoga shreds. So Bob and I didn't do much--we went to the movies and used my free $25 gift card.

9 AM

9Round 32:00 [5]
ahr:123 max:144 weight:122lbs shoes: INOV-8 Alltrain 215

A challenge day at 9Round. Since I am still sans car, while I was waiting for Bob to pick me up, I recorded my accomplishments today.

Round1--jump rope. I didn't count since I use the weighted handles, but at
least 400
Round2--squat plus overhead press with dumbbells--68
Round3--surrender followed by jab/cross on the bag--31
Round4--total round kicks on the bag--145
Round5--donkey kicks on the wrecking ball--145
Round6--situp followed by double hook on the bag--88
Round7--total shin kicks on the bag--186
Round8--total hits on the speed bag--245
Round9--one-legged V-ups--104

I'm pretty wiped out. I did have my chocolate milk recovery drink when I got home.
4 PM

Yoga 1:00:00 [2]
ahr:79 max:112

Stretch & Strengthen. Three out of four of the interval things tonight involved the legs, and my legs were sore from this morning.

Wednesday Jan 22 #

(rest day)

My car is at the dealership waiting for parts, and we are waiting for a big bill. Not sure when I can get it back. Bob would have brought me to Liberty, but my trainer had a doctor's appt, so on to next week. All I did today was grocery shopping and getting frustrated by mapping programs.

Tuesday Jan 21 #

10 AM

9Round 32:00 [3]
ahr:113 max:133 weight:124lbs shoes: INOV-8 Alltrain 215

Easier than yesterday, but still getting chauffeured by Bob. Some good weightlifting with dumbbells and kettlebells.
4 PM

Yoga 1:00:00 [2]
ahr:87 max:122

Stretch & Strengthen. We did have some aerobic moments. Then the tow truck came & took my car back to the dealer.

Monday Jan 20 #

9 AM

9Round 32:00 [5]
ahr:118 max:181 shoes: INOV-8 Alltrain 215

Since I had no driveable car, Bob dropped me off at 9Round on his way to Lowe's to get parts, so we can have running water again. A very busy gym this morning with the snow--lots of people off. A rigorous workout. This week's CHOW was 10 uppercuts on the wrecking ball and a Burpee. I did 22. I haven't been doing Burpees, but it didn't seem to hurt my hand. I have decided to step up the effort a bit.

8 AM

Orienteering race 1:45:14 [4] *** 3.2 km (32:53 / km) +174m 25:51 / km
ahr:111 max:149 8c rhr:61 slept:7.0 shoes: INOV-8 X-Talon 212

Second day of the classic at Hard Labor Creek SP. I was not happy with my race today--I lost some focus at the end. Again, two major mistakes. The first was leg S-1. I got distracted by other courses' controls. I actually got very close to the flag, didn't see, didn't really check the map and wandered. Then I focused, went back and found it. The second was even worse, 6-7. I got way off course. I should have just gone around on the trails. Need to use the brain. Also, I need to start practicing my running more so I can be more aerobic and run the good trails instead of just running in from the last control to the finish. I did learn a lot this weekend to work on, and had fun visiting with people I like but don't see a lot.

I got to hang out at the airport from about 2 pm to my flight time of 9:45 pm. Got home at almost 1 am to a house with no water, and a car that won't work.
