Yoga (Billy) 1:00:00 [1]

Ankle behaving itself a bit better this morning when I did a test/warmup walk before class on the track (3 laps).

Pleased that it did well during the standing flow of crane-warrior3-warrior1-warrior2-reverse warrior-side angle pose-and back through w2-w1-w3-crane.

Other stuff was done sitting or lying down. Extended corpse pose at the end was uncomfortable after about a minute...

Walking (track) warm up/down 2:18 [3]
slept:6.5 shoes: Sauc. Grid Cohes.9 -a 8.5W

Started on the track until my left ankle which was feeling odd this morning said "no way." 2 laps.

Fitness equipment (elliptical) 27:02
shoes: Sauc. Grid Cohes.9 -a 8.5W

Elliptical felt better. No program. Saw 155 strides/min and a high HR of 130, so an okay effort. Sweated more than I would have done walking, even with the fan on.

Pilates class (bands) 50:00 [1]

As a longtime member of the "it hurts to kneel club," I've learned a number of modifications to Pilates moves/exercises, and instructor Mary doesn't mind and actually always suggests modifications for most moves anyways in case there are any beginners in class. Others dealing with knee injuries or problems have looked to me to see what I do. :-)

Sometimes the modifications are harder (on other muscle groups) than the original. One exercise that the class does on hands and knees, extending a knee behind while pressing on the band, is so much harder if you try to do it standing (leaning over some to try to get the same angle) because the opposite hamstring gets worked more (than when kneeling).

Pilates class (weights) 50:00 [1]

Lots of upper and lower body (instructor didn't get her run in this morning, so making us work harder?). Shoulder a bit sore after.
11 AM

Fitness equipment (elliptical) 4:00 [3]
shoes: Sauc. Grid Cohes.9 -a 8.5W

Started on elliptical (hills) but quads weren't ready (Pilates? Or two orienteering days this past weekend?).

Walking (track) 35:20 2.2 mi (16:04 / mi)
shoes: Sauc. Grid Cohes.9 -a 8.5W


Only a few people on the track today, which was nice.

Exerc. Class 50:00 [1]

5-5-5 (x2), a nice mix.

Sunday Oct 16 #


Bee sting area hurt still in the middle of the night, but by morning seemed manageable especially if I took something to dull the pain, which I did before running. Between the painkiller and taping my foot (which I do regularly anyway, for arch support) I didn't notice my swollen foot while on the course; it's just a bit sore now. I don't remember bee stings on the foot being so painful...this one got me good.
11 AM

Orienteering race 1:15:56 [4] 5.74 km (13:13 / km) +140m 11:47 / km
spiked:13/16c shoes: Inov8 ORoc280-A 2013-08

NEOC Nobscot Green course, nominally 4.9 km, 235m climb*
Partly cloudy and a bit warmer than yesterday, probably low 60s.
* Map was labeled 1:10000 / 3m contours, and I think climb was calculated as if the contours were 5m. Climbs were not as steep as yesterday's and there was more trail running available so I was faster overall.

Hard to read the map around start and the first leg was short so I ended up going wide to the left (following some streamers)...d'oh. I had other people going into most of the controls from 6 to 10 which saved me a few seconds or more (esp. 6, 7, 9, 10). Navigated on my own to 11 and ended up heading to the larger, lower cliff before correcting. I did well on the long leg to 13, until the very end where I was too far left after leaving the trail near the junction and corrected. Fine the rest of the way, with a "boost" on the trail run near the end where I pushed it trying to outrun Nancy. :-) That section on the trail between 15 and 16 was probably the fastest I've run (even though not a very long distance) since last year. Finish was up a short hill and I had to walk and catch my breath after punching.

10/23, 4th of the females when we left, with young ladies ahead of me (Pia, Katia, Wendy J.).
