Orienteering 1:35:22 [1]

I walked the Green course at QOC's local event at Fountainhead with Barnacle.

After racing the last two weekends, forcing myself to walk was really disappointing. Even though I was in some pain and a lot of discomfort when racing at NAOC and the Classic Champs, it still felt like the sport of orienteering that I love - moving through terrain as quickly as possible while trying to spike controls. Forcing myself to walk took away one of the two main aspects that make the sport fun for me, and I struggled with that. I got frustrated with myself and, at times, with poor Barney. Eventually we caught Alli and joined forces, and my mood lightened, and the whole experience felt enjoyable by the end. I guess it goes to show what one good wife is worth.

Hiking 2:00:00 [1]

A nice hike in Rock Creek with Alli and Barnacle in the rain. We saw very few people in the park - I guess DC residents are afraid of a little rain, while we thought it was beautiful out. Really nice hike, and so close to home. Rock Creek Park makes me happy.

NAOC was a whirlwind and a blast! It was so much fun to share a house with such an awesome group of friends, new and old. I wish we had more time to spend with all of them! (The weekend was busy: racing, wedding reception, announcing, picking teams for the sprint relay, board-related meeting, team-related meeting, checking in on juniors, hanging out with friends who came from overseas to see us, two 10-hour drives.)

I really, really enjoyed announcing, especially at the sprint relay. Nevin and Meghan were great to work with. There are things we can improve on, but it would be great to reprise this team at NAOC 2018. And I now have a pretty solid dream of doing English-language announcing side by side with Per Forsberg at Tiomila. What do I need to do to make that happen for real?

Running 20:00 [2]

My physical therapist filmed me running on a treadmill in his office. It was immediately obvious to even the most causal observer that I should not be running. The entire right side of my body caves inwards with every step to compensate for the weakness in my core and stabilizing muscles on the right. So no more running again for a while.... This has been a long process of recovery, and I don't really see the end in sight.

PT 30:00 [1]

A lot of lunges, squats, and leg raises. Some very obvious weaknesses became apparent.

At the gym at work. My attempts at racing are over for the year. Time to do some real rehab and start preparing for Yukon 2018.

PT 20:00 [1]


Our juniors are awesome.
