Walking (Hiking) 2:30:00 [2] 6.0 mi (25:00 / mi)

Went to Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park and hiked the 6 mile loop trail. Another beautiful day, sunny, clear blue sky and warm when walking. Hard to imagine 100,000 guys trying to kill each other here. Doing a pretty good job of it also. Also hard to imagine that running a half a mile across an open field and then half a mile climb up a ridge is the smartest tactic for attacking a well dug in army. Maybe that's why it didn't work?

Friday Nov 20 #


Out and back on the Silver Comet Trail. Started at mile zero. Rode with Pam and Duffy. It's a beautiful day again - sunny, clear, beautiful blue sky, and just a little bit cool. Went at a little bit more than a leisurely pace going out. Pushed it a bit coming back. Very enjoyable ride - just enough to wear me out.

Bicycling 1:20:00 [3] 20.0 mi (4:00 / mi)

Rode with Pam. Out and back on the Lower Roswell Rd, along the river ride. We skipped the hill up Eves Rd, Pam wasn't up fpr it. I little bit windy. Chilly when we started but after warming up it wasn't so bad. Another beautiful sunny day though.

Running (woods/trail running) 1:00:00 [3] 4.0 mi (15:00 / mi)

Ran trails at the river. It was a beautiful day, sunny, clear and just cool enough to be crisp. Great running weather. Felt better running than I have in a looong time. Still slow going downhill. And it's really tough going uphill, I usually end up walking if it's more than 100m. But at least I can keep moving at a reasonable pace walking.
Not too many people running on the trails. There were more bikers than I usually see. Saw 2-3 guys working on the trails, clearing the deadfall after the storm last month and fixing some of the washed-out spots.

Bicycling 1:55:00 [3] 28.2 mi (4:05 / mi)

Out and back - Lower Roswell Rd, along the river and up Eves Rd. Beautiful blue sky and sunshine, but kind of windy today. Fortunately the ridge along the river protected the ride from most of the wind. Added the Martin Rd loop around Martin's Lake in each direction. Didn't particually push the riding, the wind and the hills were enough for a decent workout.

Stopped to help a woman who was sitting on the sidewalk and trying to flag me down. She had fallen while running, or walking, and wanted some attention. She was fine, just some scratches on her palms, and knee - that will probably be stiff tomorrow. Did have a very small scratch on the bridge of her nose which bled a little bit. Got her up and sent her on her way.

4 PM

Orienteering (pick-up controls) 53:20 [2] 2.2 mi (24:14 / mi)
shoes: VJ Falcon Green

Pick up Red/Blue controls. Walking in the woods. Went around the loop backwards from when setting the controls, still pretty interesting. Map may be off a little south of Blue-11/Red-9/Green-5. That may contribute to why the Grn runners had so much trouble with the control whereas the Blue/Red runners did not. Grn came in from the S whereas Blue/Red came from the NE.

It was a good meet. Everything went well. Times were a bit slow, especially on Grn. Disappointing there weren't more Blue and Red runners (3 and 2 respectively). Interesting/glad to see that Anna (N route), Austin (straight/contour route) and Charlie and Bridge (S. route) respectively took the three different routes on the long 6->7 leg. If you have the legs and skill for it, I still think the straight route is fastest, but in retrospect it's only ~150 m shorter than the S route. Looking at the map it first appears much more shorter than that. But the S route has ~5 contours more climb, but it is a relatively gentle climb. Worst part though is there is no good attack point, so you need to be real confident about when to leave the trail. Orange course was perhaps a little too hard. But the ROTC kids were using that for training (i.e. going out in pairs), so that worked out OK.
