Sunday Oct 9 #

orienteering 2:04:15 [3] 6.1 km (20:22 / km) +230m 17:08 / km

Red course at Mt. Penn. Pouring rain when I woke up this morning but forecast said it would clear by the afternoon so decided around 10:30 to head on out. Mt. Penn is not my favorite park - it's extremely rocky and the map is quite out of date and I've been on some pretty bad courses out there where they've taken you through some pretty green junk.

But it all turned out great.

It wasn't raining at Mt. Penn and hadn't been so the woods weren't even wet. I guess Philly was getting effects from the hurricane and it just didn't go that far inland.

The terrain was just as rocky as I remembered but the course was great and kept us in nice woods vegetation-wise. There were lots of short legs and no long trail runs although plenty of places to use the trails.

Tried to jog a few times but my various aches and pains convinced me to just keep walking. I was a little sloppy in places and had to stop a few times to wipe my eyes and my glasses (the tearing thing is going on as usual) to read the map, but never made any real big errors.

I'm pretty sore now; all the rocks do take their toll.

Saturday Oct 8 #

strength & stretching 20:00 [3]

Did all my PT exercises plus some core and stretching. I did a few of the exercises each of Thursday and Friday but not the whole set.

Friday Oct 7 #

hiking 1:40:00 [3]

Hike over to Chestnut Hill to visit the bank and the food coop. Tricky buying only what I could carry in my pack.

Garmin would not upload. I don't understand. The tracks are on the watch and I can upload tracks before and after but not these.
