running 1:00:00 [2]

Easy jogging on the trails at Clinton SP from the beach. I carried the map and took a few notes. I also did a few tests with my new mapping toy - a little laser rangefinder. The rangefinder seems to work really well. It is kind of amazing that you can just point the thing, press a button, and get a measurement. It certainly isn't essential for mapping, but I think it will come in handy.

cycling 45:00 [1]

Just the work commute. That was enough, I decided.

MTB cycling 1:05:00 [1]

MTB on the river trails. Very nice weather, but some difficulty seeing when the low sun was in my eyes.

My riding technique felt rusty.

cycling 45:00 [1]

Work commute. Nice fall weather!

Some guy opened a car door right in front of me. Fortunately I was mostly ready for anything and didn't crash into it.

6 PM

running 15:00 [2]

Jogging to/from the start/finish.

orienteering 10:00 [2] ***

A crazy, short control picking sprint course with lots of controls and direction changes. It was fun. Of course, a few controls features have changes (like trees that have been cut down). My mind seemed to be working pretty well today.

cycling 45:00 [1]

Work commute. Another chilly (and wonderful) morning.

running 30:00 [2]

Jogging on west campus and feeling pretty good.



I got the LAS files from (aka State GIS Data Access and Support Center). Great, quick service from them. Kind of the opposite of the issues with the State of Kentucky.

cycling 45:00 [1]

Work commute. I had to wear a jacket in the morning - temp was just below 50F. It felt great once my hands warmed up a bit.



I think I'm going to be able to get the 2015 LAS files for a couple of areas in Topeka that we may use for next year's Sunflower State Games. Paul Jordan's daughter, Kristen, is my contact. I haven't seen Paul in years, but I'll always be thankful that he talked me into going to my first A-meet back in 1981 near Carbondale, IL.

running 1:10:00 intensity: (55:00 @2) + (15:00 @4)

I ran on the trails at Clinton from the beach. I wasn't sure whether the trails would be ok. I read somewhere that parts of Shawnee County had 5+ inches of rain last night. Lawrence had something like 1.5. I figured I'd start on the white trail and see how things were. Everything was fine - the white trail was in great shape.

4x HE/ML.

At the end of the trail run, I went up and down the concrete steps from the beach to the top a few times. I wanted to get the total climb for the session up to 200 meters.
