Saturday Jul 27 #


Woke up this morning feeling strange. I got up, had some breakfast, watched the TDF coverage, then went back to sleep. I slept for an hour. During that hour Mary disappeared. It took me awhile to find the note that she left. I was kind of confused. I feel better, but plan to make it a very easy day.

MTB cycling 1:05:00 [1]

MTB on bike paths and a little on the road.

I felt a bit slow. I went a bit slow. I think today's travel and the afternoon heat took it out of me.

running 1:25:00 [2]

At Gunpowder Falls State Park near Bel Air, MD. My plan was to head north from the parking area and explore the trails, but the trail under the highway was closed. Instead went south. That was fine - plenty of stuff to explore. There's a trail that follows the river and gets a lot of use by people who swim. There are a few side trails that go up into the hills.

At one point I lost the trail. It wasn't getting much use and there were a couple of fallen trees. I crawled under one of the trees and couldn't find the trail. I ended up back tracking. Back tracking meant I was out a little longer than I'd expected. It was starting to get a little dark in the denser parts of the forest. I picked up the pace a little for maybe 10 minutes to make sure I'd be back before dark.

running 20:00 [2]

I found a park near where I'm working. Open Street Map showed plenty of trails. When I arrived around 6:30 I spotted a big gate with a sign that it closed at 7:00. I thought about trying to find another park, then decided to just do a short run and finish before I got locked in.

Anyway...I had a nice bit short (and sweaty) run.

orienteering 25:00 [4] ***

Sunflower Games on the Washburn Campus. It was fun, but I am really disappointed with my orienteering. Going over the map, I would say that I had only 1 or 2 legs where I was orienteering properly. I also skipped a control. Running wasn't so good, but the heat wasn't so bad.

We had an Estonian ski orienteer who won the course. That was kind of fun.
