Spent the morning bouncing between the Animal-O station and orienting a couple of Tot Lot families that came out to the event today. Finished up with the Short White course with Lukas, Melissa, T and his mom. Made the rookie mistake of starting them off with only one e-punch. I fixed that problem after the second control.
After all that, and the unseasonably warm weather, and the unappealing summer-looking woods, and my missed run yesterday, and my deadline to be back in Cambridge for my softball game, I decided to just go for a run instead of orienteering. I took a green map and ran along trails more or less going backwards, sighting a few of them along the way.
10x[1' hard + 1' easy]
A bit rough, energy-wise, but it was nice to run in the shade and on trails.
Picked up Lukas' buddy T on the box bike and rode them both to soccer/playground time, then back again. It's hard to imagine much training effect from pedaling two kids five miles in flat Cambridge with pedal assist, but I do feel the effort in my legs, so maybe there's something?
They love riding in the box together and have the cutest conversations along the way.
Playing ball (batting) 15:00 
Taking swings at the batting cage. I think my swinging muscles are getting a bit more used to this. Timing is better, too. Several hours later I can still grip things, we'll see how my hammies are tomorrow.
