I was walking with Samantha. From the intersection of Elmhirst Ln. and Elmhirst Dr., to Elmhirst Pkwy. to the Elmhirst Trail, to Cedar Ln., to Rock Creek Trail, to a place where the trail gets very close to the closed road, then back on the road and the way we'd come out.

Hoyles Mill Conservation Park. I started from the Hoyles Mill Trailhead parking lot on White Ground Rd. I cleared-up some things along the trail and the small power lines in the north. Later I made my way across the big slope that has the large field. Picking up more boulders in the open areas, I left the big hillside and continued working southward across flatter grounds. When I turned northward, I worked my way up the stream getting smaller things, but mostly the vegetation. Getting out of the stream valley, I turned southward again, linking-up areas that I'd mapped before. This got me onto what amounts to the main ridge on this part of the map. I was running out of time as I was heading back north to finish-up, picking up nicely scattered rock features in fairly open terrain. I left a good amount of the open forest to explore and look forward to coming back.

Though I'd gotten a bottle of water ready to take along, I'd forgotten to put it in my backpack before I'd left home and I knew I'd pay for it. It got to around 80 F today. On the way home I stopped to get a drink. As I was finishing dinner, I got nasty killer cramps in both hamstrings at the same time. After about 5 minutes of that I was fine. I also found my first tick of the season, after getting home.

From Northfield Rd., Moorland St./Grant St. to Madison St., to Garfield St., to Northfield Rd. Samantha and I walked after dinner. There was a fully moon shining through the clouds and it'd cooled off to the low 60s F.

From Northfield Rd., Jefferson St., to Lincoln St., to Garfield St., left on the trail to Heampstead Ave., to McKinley St., to Garfield St., to Roosevelt St., to Jefferson St., to Northfield Rd. I',m still resting but sushi the night before has my weight up. On this outing, Samantha and I walked.

With a rainy day and my left knee being increasingly sore, I decided some days off would be good.

Running 54:18 [3] 5.09 mi (10:40 / mi) +82m 10:10 / mi

Cabin John Regional Park, MD. From the Beach Volleyball parking lot, I headed west to get onto the Cabin John Trail, crossed Tuckerman Ln. to get onto the lower part of the campground loop, got on the lower trail that parallels the creek on the east side, crossed Cabin John Creek at the last trail crossing point inside the park, returned to Tuckerman Ln. on trail paralleling the west side of the creek, got back on the Cabin John Trail, then used unnamed trails to get back to the Beach Volleyball parking lot from the east. At first, I figured I was a little slow from the hills. My left knee hurt some more and I think part of my slow speed had to do with my knee. I had come here to run on softer ground. It was a nice day in the low 60s F. I didn't see a lot of people.

Running (Street & Trail) 49:06 [3] 5.12 mi (9:35 / mi) +73m 9:11 / mi
slept:6.1 weight:190.1lbs

From Northfield Rd., Greenwich Park, to Old Georgetown Rd. to Beech Dr. to Singleton Dr. to Startmont Rd., to Friars Rd., to Fernwood Pl. to Fernwood Rd., to Bradley Blvd., to Huntington Pkwy., to Moorland Ln., to Custer Rd., to Northfield Rd. It was 63 F with a lot of light still in the sky. I started out figuring I'd finish-up a different way to get 5 miles, but with the extra light, I thought it'd be good to get to areas that I've rarely been in. I felt okay starting out, but slow on hills. After the climb on Singleton Dr., I slowed, even while going downhill. There was a long climb on Bradley Blvd., and Huntington Pkwy. for the last mile and I slowed the most on it. My left knee continues to bother me. I may need to back off the training a little to get it stronger again. It definitely slowed me.

Calisthenics (General) 1:00 [3]

30 sit-ups.
