walking 1:00:00 [3]

Some more walking around Nay Aug checking sprint stuff.

map hiking 2:00:00 [3]

Tyler Score-O. Can't believe I forgot my watch at home. Had to take my phone with me so that I wasn't overtime. I would check it periodically to make sure I was on track to get back in time and I did the last couple of controls with my phone in my hand to make sure I made the cut-off (which I did with a minute or so to spare).

Didn't have a real plan, just a vague loop in mind that looked like it would be a nice walk with time for a loop of 6 controls that would require some navigation if I had time. I set some limits - for example, I had to start back across the bridge to the Start/Finish with at least 20 minutes - and then just had fun. I tried jogging a few steps but my hamstrings were still so tight that it was painful and I was afraid I'd injure myself so just kept to a walk.

Did reasonably well score wise although I didn't even realize different controls were worth different points until about 40 minutes in when I figured out what was going on. I guess I wasn't at all prepared for this! But had fun so it's all good.

My hamstrings are ridiculously tight. I assume it has something to do with the trip. Perhaps I let myself get dehydrated on top of all the other altitude stuff? I'm sure sleeping on the airport floor didn't help. I have to be careful or they will randomly cramp up on me. So didn't try to jog any of the sprints just walked.

I was breathing hard for most of this so surprised my heartrate was pretty low. I wonder if having spent time at altitude made a difference.

Finally made it home. We ended up spending about 30 hours in the Lima airport. What was most annoying was that they kept saying the flight was delayed (not canceled) and by the time it was actually canceled all the nearby hotels were booked. So we hunkered down on the floor along with hundreds of others and just endured. Once we finally got a flight late last night (early this morning? can't remember when we actually left) it was fine and the rest of the trip home was uneventful.

Will add details and pictures in the next few days. Overall it was a wonderful trip and it was great to spend time with my kids. But glad to be back home.

Will probably need a few days to catch up on sleep though!

Lima airport shut down for about 10 hours last night and our flight home was canceled. Hopefully our rescheduled flight this evening goes as planned.

It was supposed to be a relatively straightforward travel day on Sunday: Cusco -> Lima -> Newark arriving early Monday morning. The first part went fine. But then something happened at the Lima airport and the lights on the runway wouldn't work so all flights were delayed and then eventually cancelled.

I am sure we are in lots of tv footage of the masses of people stranded at the airport as we kept having reporters and camera men filming right in front of us.
