running 10:00 [2]

Jogging to warm up. Once I started my heart rate didn't get below 147 despite the light effort. I guess that's the lingering illness.

orienteering race 53:36 [4] *** 7.55 km (7:06 / km) +119m 6:35 / km
ahr:170 max:178 15c

SLOC red at S-F. Super fun/pleasant terrain and an interesting course. As planned, I ran Pasi-style. That cost me a little on a couple of legs at the end where there wasn't much to read on the map and I had a bit of zig zagging.

See twitter for the course. I'll scan it later.

Travel most of the way to the SLOC meet. We got the OUSA discount at Motel 6.

cycling 45:00 [1]

Work commute. The temp was in the mid 60s when I went to work and nearly 80 for the trip home. Downtown was still crowded with people after the parade. I encountered a lot of bad drivers on my trip home.

rowing 20:00 [1]

Row, row.

Then laundry, laundry.

Then pack, pack.

cycling 45:00 [1]

Work commute. Pleasant weather today.
6 PM

orienteering 15:00 [2] ***

A very short technique session on the base map (contours + lidar lutning image) of the neighborhood and Holcolm. Except for one brief coughing fit, I felt pretty good.

My O' technique was sloppy. I was orienteering passively - just heading in the right direction and checking off features. I'll need to fix that for the weekend.

running 5:00 [2]

cycling 45:00 [1]

Work commute. Mary declared that I was "almost normal" today. I'll still got a bit of a cough and some junk in my lungs, but she's probably right. I'll do an easy run tomorrow.

rowing 20:00 [1]

I planned to do a little exercise today. I figured biking to/from work would be enough to see how I felt, but not so much that if I didn't feel ok I'd suffer.

When I woke up there was an inch of snow on the roads and snow falling. I decided not to bike to work.

After work I did a "row, row" session. I took it easy, but worked harder as I went and by the end was actually working up a sweat. When I stopped I had trouble breathing and coughed and hacked for a half an hour.

Mary and I went for a hike on a bit of the Rockcrusher base map and then on some of the trails west of the current base map. It was just the right amount of work for me today.
