DVOA French Creek North - Green

Always a tough venue in the summer, and I don't usually do as well when the parks are green and the visibility low. So I expected floundering. Yet somehow I was on today and hitting straight into most of the controls. In fact, I only had a few small errors and they related to picking attackpoints along the trail. I felt a bit lightheaded at one point when I had to bend over (sometimes does happen because I have low blood pressure, and I have never actually passed out) but after that made sure to keeping sucking down lots of water and felt ok.

When I got back and started to change, I realized I forgot to bring a clean shirt. (Had all the other clothes though.) Wore my damp, clammy shirt all the way home. Yuck.

biking 38:03 [3] 6.1 mi (6:14 / mi)

This was the next section of the Enola Low Grade trail. It was very remote and I didn't see a single other person (just a few deer). Rode down as far as I could go toward the river, to this side of the broken bridge, and then back. This section of trail was also not as well maintained. The gravel was much larger and very deep in places which could make for rough going. Some areas were rutted or overgrown with grass.

When I got back to the parking area, I intended to go the other way for a while. But there was another car next to mine and some guy appeared to be looking in my car windows. So I rode slightly past and then swung back around and into the lot. The guy immediately got back into his car (there was another person in there too) and stayed in there just sitting while I put my bike away, keeping my other eye on him. They were in there talking and probably thought I couldn't hear them with the windows up, but I clearly heard him saying "I was waiting for her to go by and then I was like, shit!" So I'm about 90% certain I foiled a break in of my own car :-/ I did get the license number and will probably report to the police non emergency line in the morning. It could be nothing, but seems awfully shady to me. If they were there to walk or run you think they would have just gotten on with it, and if they were returning from doing so you think they would have just left.

trail run 32:38 [4] 3.12 mi (10:28 / mi)
shoes: Asics Enduro

Had to meet up with someone in Mount Joy to exchange money for a bit I was selling. So I looked up nearby parks and picked this small but interesting place, Cove Outlook Park. Mix of paved, dirt, and gravel trails plus grass. Some in open land and some in very thick forested areas.

horseback riding (english) 20:00 [1]

Made it 20 minutes outside, then the storms began. Before we even entered the indoor, the power went out. So we stood in there in the dark while it monsooned outside. Unable to do anything in the dark, we tried to go back outside when the worst of the rain had passed, but just then a huge lightning pattern swept across the sky. So we decided to call it a day...
