I went to Pawtuckaway! A glorious morning. The woods seemed physically tougher, but I'm sure that's just my running fitness. I didn't really make any big mistakes today, other than being entirely incapable of finding the last control once I crossed the road again, but I was extremely unconfident, to the extent of things like stopping dead still for almost a minute on the way to number 9 despite the fact it turned out I was pretty much 100% on line! Still, my description holder suggests I haven't just run an orienteering course since last November in Gay City, so a lack of flow and confidence is not surprising. At the start I had a stiff bum from dumbbell domination, when I hit the felled area at the end I was definitely tired. Looking forward to orienteering more and getting a little fitter again for the woods!
Didn't want to drive anywhere today and still have a lot of work to do after leaving Yale. So did the third Dumbell Domination workout - only one more to go. This one was fine except for the burpees. Probably going to go to Pawtuckaway tomorrow to run a course. Was just a bit whacked today and lacking in motivation for the getting organised to go to Pawtuckaway bit. Would have enjoyed the actually being there bit.
Into the Harvard ID office, on to work, then home. Total sweatfest out there today. Hopefully the last one of the summer though! Everything crossed :D
My Strongest You Coach has started a ten day "Dumbbell Domination" challenge and it seemed like perfect timing to try to get me back into doing some actual strength work. This was super hard and I had to modify it a ton to get through, but satisfied that I made it.
Rosie got five teeth removed at the vet today. The care instructions say we should brush her teeth daily. Right.
Feeling better and with glorious weather we decided to go for a "meandering bike ride through Arlington" and somehow ended up going out to Concorde and back. Energy and lungs were good, hip flexors were a bit tight by the end. Lovely day, fun cycle once we escaped the mental early section of the MinuteMan.
