running 1:10:00 [2]

I shuffled around on west campus for a bit. I felt pretty good. Temps were ok, the sky was cloudy, and I felt a few rain drops.

MTB cycling 50:00 [1]

Bike around on campus checking the locations for Monday's orienteering. Fun and kind of interesting to explore on a MTB where you have to think a lot more about stairs.



KU class note. I made my first stupid Blackboard mistake. I had a quiz that was not yet available to students. But the next quiz was available. So they did the readings, but then the quiz covered different readings. Stupid mistake. I've corrected it and extended the due date. Two students had already started the wrong quiz. Drat.

Long work day - presenting at the "Citizen's Academy."

MTB cycling 55:00 [1]

MTB on the paved paths. I went out to Clinton and looked at the water level. It looks like it might be possible to reach Sander's Mound in a few more days. The water level continues to fall.

My legs felt really good biking. That was nice.

I was at a KU class today and talked about orienteering maps and map making. The class will have a score course on campus next Monday. It'll be interesting to see how it goes.

No running or biking. I mowed the lawn. I also did some prep for an intro to orienteering lecture at a KU class.

And...I spent some time researching kolbottnar. I found a cool map of old features across Sweden. It includes a bunch of kolbottnar. Fun.

Monday Sep 16 #

MTB cycling 30:00 [1]

Running an errand. I had a surprise visit with Lucy!


I also discovered something really cool...a Master's thesis about using lidar to detect kolbottnar.

One of the runners at today's orienteering was a high school (or possibly junior high?) kid who got credit for his "online PE course" for today's orienteering. How strange, but good.

OK event at Clinton Overlook. Eric S set the course. The course was nice with no rough vegetation.

I was at the start helping people get going and had decided I'd skip running the course. But Eric talked me into it. So I ran, without any warm up and not pushing. Despite not pushing, my h.r. was high. Some of that's the heat and humidity. It was ok in the shade, but the sun was warm. Lots of sweat.

I stepped on a thorn near control 7. The thorn went through the bottom of my shoe. I tried to pull it out quickly, but it broke off, leaving the thorn in the sole and my foot. I walked carefully to the trail/sidewalk, sat down and was able to pull it out.
