Saturday Dec 9, 2017 #


Walked from parking lot to Christkindlmarkt in Bethlehem, PA, with my daughter-in-law, and back, plus around the market. We were on our feet for several hours so that's worth a mention in my log even though it's not really worth logging as training.

It started snowing here about an hour before we left home, but didn't really start sticking to the roads until later in the afternoon. Maybe 4 -5" on the ground? Roads were warm enough to melt the snow for the most part, until later in the day, so not as much accumulation there. It set the scene nicely, though. Bethlehem puts on a nice Christmas party, though it was too cloudy/snowy to see the star on the mountain south of town (and on the Star Village orienteering map).

The Tryson menfolk we left behind deserve extra thanks for letting us have this girls' day out. :-)

Yoga 50:00 [1]

Yay...back to yoga! This is the class our regular yoga instructor holds at the local library (about 4 miles away). 17 students

I needed the hip twist stretching we did. Probably did more planks and down dogs than my shoulder liked, though.

Brown course at Fair Hill for mid-Atlantic championships meet between DVOA and QOC. Nominally 4.2 km, 75 m climb

Fair Hill is not my favorite venue because it's open fields for the most part with wedges and snippets of woods--where controls are usually placed--which can be scratchy in places. I'm not much of a runner so am at a disadvantage to those who *can* run. In some places in the fields, even the grass (although fallen over) was an impediment (except perhaps for those young high-stepping folks who probably had no trouble with it). But I navigated well ... except for number 3 where I didn't see the intended rootstocks/dirt balls/mapped knolls and checked many other unmapped ones before trying again from a stream junction. Probably lost 8-10 minutes there (I haven't analyzed the track).

My route from 5-6 was probably one of the slower ones; I thought I'd lose too much elevation dropping to the road but I suspect it was the best.

25th on Brown last time I checked.

Added Note: AJ Riley smoked the course in just under 27 minutes!

Orienteering race 14:23 intensity: (31 @3) + (1:49 @4) + (12:03 @5) ** 1.43 km (10:03 / km) +34m 8:59 / km

First leg (1.3 km 35m climb) of relay for an 8-pt DVOA team with Ron Bortz and Fred Reed.

I was probably last to finish on leg 1 (unless there were some walkers), but we finished 5/8 teams thanks to Ron and Fred.

DVOA won! :-)
