Biking (Mt Vernon Bike Trail) 3:30:00 [2] 36.0 mi (5:50 / mi)

Parked at Roosevelt Island lot and rode to Mount Vernon and back. Got a little confused at Jones Point and visited the dog park briefly. The trail actually stops short of the Mount Vernon historical site proper, but I had come all that way so I circled in front before heading back. The hill from mile 1 to 0 was a killer on the way to MTV. And since I am a wuss about speeding downhill - especially when it is a twisting, narrow, shady trail - the downhill wasn't all that much fun either.

I really enjoyed this ride despite how crowded and tight it is in parts. Very glad to have gotten out early - home by 11:15...

Only part I didn't like (besides the hill) was the overpass along the GW parkway which is right next to the road. I would do this one again.


Spent several hours each of the last 3 days clearing out the basement of water, rugs, etc. Then replacing everything today. This should be the last time since we know what the culprit was and have resolved the drain problem.

Trail Run (Warm up/cool down) 16:00 [1] 1.2 mi (13:20 / mi)
shoes: Silva K80 2

From the car to the start point & back for the Summer Series training at Great Falls. Did this in the morning since I am not able to make the evening session. Forgot I had put my Forerunner on top of the car to get satallites and had to run back partway for it. This park continues to get poor satallite reception.

Orienteering (Loop B @ GF MD) 1:05:00 [2] *** 2.9 km (22:25 / km) +120m 18:34 / km
shoes: Silva K80 2

A couple of errors (7, 16, 18, 19). Also slowed to take some pictures. Must have eaten about 30 spider webs and had one FDF after me too. Bit me once - not sure how PG stands it. Very painful, But after one bite and swat, it never came back.

Orienteering (Loop A @ GF MD) 59:00 [2] *** 2.8 km (21:04 / km) +105m 17:45 / km
shoes: Silva K80 2

Pushed harder on this but still slower than I would have liked. Harder to see the controls since they are just streamers. Fumbled on 1!, 5, 9, 16. Totally soaked when done. Spider webs covered glasses. A fine day!

Misc (Boot Camp Day 5) 1:00:00 [1] 0.0 mi
shoes: Saucony Hurricane 5 Men's

The instructor said we were meeting outside "rain or shine." To show him how tough I am, I run to the site from the house only to find out that we are meeting inside about a mile away. Well, I am soaking wet for nothing. What a wuss he was this morning, and the other 8 people who didn't show up! Gluts were the pleasure area for today. He ran behind again and we didn't do much ab work.

This weekend's exciting activity is cleaning the basement once again - this time it was inches of water. Turns out it wasn't the gutters, but the sump drain in the corner of the basement. The outlet was blocked with rocks and peanuts in the shell.

Misc (Boot Camp Day 4) 1:10:00 [1] 0.0 mi
shoes: Saucony Hurricane 5 Men's

Bike to site, a little warm up, and then put through our paces. Different instructor today - Jeff who was tougher than Julie - late comers had to do push ups or a lap. I liked him better. Lots of lunges, sqauts, upper body stuff with bands, and ab work. We did about a 1.25 miles of running today spread out over the hour. Ride home. Thank goodness for my Advil!!

Misc (Boot Camp Day 3) 1:00:00 [1] 0.0 mi
shoes: Saucony Hurricane 5 Men's

Wore my heart rate monitor today but hit the wrong button and turned off the tracking...Regular routine includes up at 5:20, 4 Advil, asthma meds, a little breakfast and then ride to the meeting site. I ride a little extra and jog up and back on the grass as well. Today included no running. Lots of push ups in different variations which I am unable to really do because of the tendinitis in my right forearm. I did what I could but took 10 minutes off from my total time for the slacking off... The ab work is killing me but is just what I need.

Running/Walking (Wakefield HS Track) 43:47 [2] 3.4 mi (12:53 / mi)
shoes: Saucony Hurricane 6

Not sure why I thought that I needed more exercise today - but since I hadn't really run today, I popped the pills and went for it. Down to the track and then alternate laps running and walking in lane 6. Times were: 300 (from house) 421 (tie shoes) 243 404 237 429 (adjust shoes again) 238 409 (shoes again!) 237 355 237 636 (walk home with a little extra thrown in).
A little tired and aching. Nothing really painful, but then how could I tell with all the Advil.

Misc (Boot Camp Day 2) 1:10:00 [2] 0.0 mi
shoes: Saucony Hurricane 6

2nd session of Boot Camp for Women. Rode bike to the meeting place. Jogged a bit to loosen up. Then the hour session and rode back home afterwards. Session over at 7:01, home at 7:05, showered and out the door and at my desk at 7:31 - only 1 minute late.

Only about 1 mile running today. Lots of abs, jumping jacks (Miss Coordination on these), more abs, arm work with band thingees, more abs. I can feel it.


Planned to bike after work (after the usual after work nap), but the storms rolled in and I was off the hook. Maybe tomorrow.
