orienteering race 23:59 [3]

Sprint course - F60+
A surprisingly fun but very long (too long) sprint course on a college campus. There were several legs where you had to look ahead or you would get caught. I did that reasonably well for the most part. On 6-7 I went right when I definitely should have gone left but didn't see that until after I was moving but that was probably only 10 seconds or so. On 7-8 I correctly read all the uncrossable walls and took a good route only to lose focus and not keep track of where I was and stood perplexed for 30 seconds or so until I realized I was one building over. Got a little lucky on 11-12 seeing someone take the bridge to the upper level of the building as I was approaching. Hmm...wonder why they're doing that?...oh, I need to do that, too.

Had to stop several times and put the reading glasses on to decipher what was happening. I had them around my neck but I can't read that kind of detail while moving. Mostly walked but occasionally jogged for 30-40 paces when I was on grass. Knee wasn't bad and didn't stiffen up much after finishing.

trail 43:44 [3] 2.79 mi (15:41 / mi) +282ft 14:19 / mi

Tried to just take it easy so as not to injure myself any further. I have fairly low expectations for the weekend as running for more than 100m at a time is not feasible at the moment. I almost decided to bag the whole weekend and stay home but decided that I would most likely enjoy the atmosphere and staying at the lodge and just being in some new terrain.

It's been a crappy couple of weeks: the stress of the A event and getting ready for the Billygoat meant a little less sleep than usual, I haven't been exercising as regularly as I would like, there are some annoying things at work that just won't get resolved and then the kicker, my son and daughter-in-law are facing a new cancer diagnosis. She starts chemo next week.

hiking 1:04:32 [1] 3.01 mi (21:26 / mi) +430ft 18:53 / mi

An early evening hike of the meadow loop with a trip up and down A-hill thrown in for kicks.

Pretty exhausted from the weekend. Not really training but needed to do something.
