Orienteering (Woods) 44:00 [1] **
9c weight:173lbs

Walked the Yellow course with Baby-O. She held up pretty well, but was getting really tired by the end.

Orienteering race (Woods) 1:05:32 [4] *** 6.1 km (10:45 / km) +365m 8:16 / km

Advanced course at West Tyson (1:10). Includes score portion. Knew I wouldn't be able to blast the hills, so I focused on being clean, particularly the flood plain section. Worked out well. Beat David by about 4 minutes to tie the death match at 2-2. map.

Cycling (Trail) 44:00 [3]

Kate took Baby-O home for her nap after we did the Yellow course, leaving me with my bike. Rode the Chubb to Lone Elk...

Cycling (Road) 1:01:00 [2]

...and then the rest of the way home on roads.

St. Charles Blast 5K

Paddling (Kayak) 1:18:00 [2]

Meremac from Greentree up to 141 and back. River is still really low, so the rapids were moving. 47 minutes up and 31 back.

Running (Road) 34:00 [2]

Warmup (25 minutes)/down.

Running race (Road) 18:24 [5] 5.0 km (3:41 / km)

St. Charles Blast 5K. Fun little race. Odd start time: 6:30PM. Flat course that had a whole bunch of tight turns. Was really happy with my pacing - the third mile isn't as bad as it looks because it had the tightest turns and went through the carnival area where I had to slow down for some people in the road. Decided not to kick so I'd have some legs for the hills at Tyson tomorrow. Finished 3rd overall behind two teenagers (no beating the youngsters at this distance).

Splits: 5:54, 5:53, 6:03, 0:34

Finally got around to updating the address on my driver's license (they might not let me vote otherwise). While I was at it, I also updated the weight, which was still listed as 210! I'm not sure if that reading was when I was on the way up (1994, peaking at 235 in 1995) or coming back down. At any rate, I boldy put down 175, even though that will be pretty tough to maintain year round.

Running (Road) 44:00 [2]

Easy lunchtime run with Jeff.

Wednesday Sep 27, 2006 #


First morning reading below 175 since 1993. I didn't believe it at first so I moved the scale to a different spot and got the same value.

Not sure whether to be pleased or concerned. Normally, I gain 4 or 5 pounds of inflammation after an AR and then lose it rather quickly a few days later, so the drop of 6 pounds in 2 days is nothing new. What's different is that a) I was only up 3 pounds and b) I bailed halfway through the race, so I wasn't nearly as beat up as I usually am.

No other symptoms of concern. Resting pulse is fine (a few beats high, but I rode hard last night) and if anything, I'm over-hydrated right now. I guess I'll find out this weekend: racing at Tyson 18 hours after a 5K should make any problems quite obvious.

Running (Road) 48:00 [2]

After yesterday's inadvertantly long run, Jeff had to be much more creative in his excuse to not get branded a wimp for skipping the lunchtime run today. After indicating his doubts about my "3.5 mile loop" for today, he made it all the way to the locker room and then "discovered" that he didn't have his shoes. No doubt he chucked them out of his bag when he got it from his van. Just to spite him, I ran 6 instead of 3.5.

Orienteering (Woods) 1:57:00 [3] ***

Four control picking courses at Babler (1:15) plus some jogging/walking between courses. Babler hasn't opened up yet, so it was good training for speed through light green as well. Nav was great by adventure race standards, but not where it needs to be for orienteering. No big booms, but lots of bobbles.

Running (Road) 1:14:00 [2]

Ran with Jeff at lunch over to Stacy Park to meet Kate and Baby-O. Thought it would be around 7 miles, but it turned out to be more like 9. Good thing neither of us had a 1:00 meeting.

Cycling (Trail) 1:38:00 [3]

Two full laps of Lost Valley plus the out & back from Mt. Plutonium at night. Stiff, steady tempo. Second loop was right at 40 minutes which may be a PR for me (although I've never ridden LV full on because I only ride there at night).

Monday Sep 25, 2006 #

Running (Road) 49:00 [2]

Mason loop.

Paddling (Kayak) 1:08:00 [3]

Around CC Lake in 52 minutes and then 6 pickups.
