Orienteering race 1:33:36 [4] 6.3 km (14:51 / km)

Red Day 2 at Pawtuckaway. Pretty good effort, bobbled several, incl 5,6,7,10, but none more than a minute or two. Still way off the speedy pace of George and Phil.

Kayak 45:00 [3]

Paddling around with Rhonda at Pawtuckaway. Visited the controls I missed yesterday.

Orienteering race 1:38:42 [4] 6.0 km (16:27 / km)

Red Day 1 at Pawtuckaway. A pretty reasonable run. No disasters, but several relatively minor errors and moving very slowly.

Orienteering race (Canoe O) 1:00:56 [4]

Got 11 controls at Pawtuckaway Canoe O. Felt tired, blistered my right thumb. Otherwise ok. One dumb mistake going on the wrong side of an island. Next time, I'm just getting out of the boat for controls that are too tight to get in with the kayak. Spent a fair amount of time wiggling around to try to get into tight spots. Nice day on the water, though.

Orienteering race (Night-O) 1:19:07 [4]

First 9 controls of the Wicked Hard Night-O at Pawtuckaway. This constituted the red course. Mass start was away from me by #2, and only saw a few people after that. Ran with John Magnus off and on up through #7, and saw a guy named Andrew at #7 and then again at #9. Passed Pia and her running companion between 9 and the trail. Took forever on the trail back. Pretty good fun.

Orienteering 1:01:56 [3]

Ran the Green X course from the spring A-meet at Wolf Den on my way back from Providence - or at least most of it. Left off the little lollipop at the end, since I was running short of time before my golf engagement. Kinda hot, and hard moving through ferns and other thick stuff. Felt slow, but no trouble with navigation. Compared it to competitor splits from the actual race, and I was pretty slow. I think I was faster when I ran it back in late April.


o-practice with white ball at Blue Fox with Tom. Started out pretty fine with a birdie, and otherwise not so bad, but afllicted by some annoying pulls on my drives.

Gym 1:10:00 [3]

Rhonda's morning class. Haven't done this in a while and found it difficult. Wrist and elbow injuries keep me out of a lot of positions. Saw a whippoorwill cavorting around at the top of the driveway on my way to class at 6am.

Running 44:30 [3]

From Zack's school to Gillette Castle and around on some of the trails there. At a break in the action among the parent conferences as school starts.

Running (trail run) 1:24:45 [3] 7.0 mi (12:06 / mi)

Tunxis trail loop from home. Split to jct of Ratlum Rd and trail on N end: 28:15. Split on trail S to Ratlum Rd New Htfd end: 37:46. Up Doyle Rd and home: 18:44. A longstanding observation which held up just fine is that the first split is exactly 1/3 of the time for the whole loop. Haven't done this loop probably in a year, but have been thinking about it for some time. My PR is just about exactly 10 years old - 69:10 in 1996. I think I did something in the 70s sometime within the last four or five years (maybe a 77), but today's goal was 84 - 85, and it worked out fine.

Hike 45:00 [2] 2.25 mi (20:00 / mi)

Ann loop, pushing Rebekah in her stroller and trying to keep up with Rhonda.
