7 AM

running 1:00:00 [2]

A slow run on West Campus. Getting out before 8 a.m. was good. It was still sweaty, but not so hot. The dew on the grass was heavy.


Friday Aug 9 #

running 25:00 [2]

I got out the door and shuffled around for a little bit. This was a chore.


Thursday Aug 8 #

MTB cycling 1:30:00 [1]

On the bike paths + some on streets. I carried my Lawrence 1:15K map and read it a bit. I also used it to explore the Haskell Campus. That was kind of fun. I've been doing enough biking with a map that I'm starting to be a little more efficient in spotting where I am on the map. It is a lot harder to do that when you can't just fold the map and hold it in your hand.

I didn't exercise, but I did read an article about orienteering:

Tuesday Aug 6 #

MTB cycling 1:20:00 [1]

On the bike paths. I did the first 30 minutes with Mary. That was fun.

I put my MTBO map holder back on my bike and made a quick map in QGIS. The map is 1:15000 with 5 meter contours, roads, bike paths, ponds and buildings. It is something to read. A few years ago I played around with MTBO and got a lot better at reading the map. It is hard when you can't fold it up and hold it with your thumb. Tonight I did some practice - looking at whereI was on the map, then looking up and spotting a few features, then looking back at the right spot on the map.

Hot out there tonight.

running 1:25:00 [2]

Jogging in the morning. I'm setting up an orienteering exercise for a KU class and I shuffled around looking for control features to use. I found enough.
