With L, hike for the first time on the Kent Trail along the shore of Alpine Lake. Planned to turn around at the junction with the Helen Markt Trail, but walked on the latter for a little bit and then hung out on a scenic beach for a bit.

Stretching 3:30:00 [2]

The usual weekly accumulation of morning stretching. Didn't get the full amount in most mornings, but still did a fair amount.

Bon Tempe mapping. Hopefully the last unless vetters point out issues.

These shoes hurt my toes, even though I didn't run at all.

ahr:146 max:174 spiked:11/12c shoes: Salomon Spikecross 5 GTX

Bon Tempe. After a long mapping session that included some good running, finally got a real workout in: 1.6 kn, 12 controls in just over 14 minutes. One really can run here! This was a "course" I made up on the fly as I went along; I oughta use some of those legs sometime.

Orienteering (Mapping) 1:55:10 [3] 1.49 mi (1:17:17 / mi) +58m 1:08:56 / mi
ahr:79 max:129 shoes: Salomon Spikecross 5 GTX

Got all ready to go last night, but due to some unavoidable delays, didn't get going at Bon Tempe until 11:00. Had hoped that I would get a run in today while I was out there, but that didn't happen.

Last night I noticed a flaw in my course design, and made a couple of adjustments using some spots I hadn't been to. Today when I visited those spots, they needed significant remapping and one of them wasn't acceptable anyway. So, I left BT pretty discouraged, but on the drive home I figured out how to restructure the design to make it all work.

Mapping and course designing are still on my mind 24 hours a day :(

12 PM

Running (Easy distance) 41:02 [3] 4.0 mi (10:16 / mi)
ahr:149 max:180 shoes: Speedcross 5

San Anselmo. One of the stranger workouts I've ever done. Local parks were all closed (high fire danger due to high winds, though it wasn't windy at all right here), but it was a lovely day, I hadn't run yesterday, but I didn't want to run on pavement, so decided to try running on the dirt of my side yard. That area is roughly 40' by 20'; my estimate is that a lap is about 1/50 of a mile. But the Garmin was very confused by me running around in tight circles (did some figure 8's to change directions, and later in the run made some forays around the front lawn) and reported less than half the actual distance. Three times I went out in the street and ran a tenth of a mile E and then ran back. The Garmin seemed OK on those parts, and I averaged less than 10 mins/mile. Quite sure that my pace didn't differ when I was in the yard, so this was easily a 4 mile run. Actually seemed like a pretty good workout. Wouldn't want to have to do it again for many months, though.

[Easy distance]

Running warm up/down 6:00 [2] 0.35 mi (17:09 / mi)
shoes: Speedcross 5

Cool down, again in the yard.

4 PM


Good thing I bought new Speedcrosses a couple of days ago: noticed that the laces on my current ones have frayed in one spot, and I expect that the lace will break quite soon, and while I love the convenience of their no-tie lace system, replacing a lace is quite a chore, so it's pretty much the end-of-life for this pair.

Sunday Oct 25 #

(rest day)

Red flag warning (high winds anticipated) had the parks closed, or I might have gone out for some mapping at Bon Tempe.
