Walking 32:18 intensity: (4 @0) + (6:51 @1) + (23:22 @2) + (1:34 @3) + (27 @4) 1.99 mi (16:14 / mi)
ahr:106 max:143 shoes: Sauc TriumphISO-silver/gr/blue

Neighborhood walk.

71 and mostly cloudy, but the breeze I lamented a week or so ago (when it was in the 40s) was most welcome today. Gorgeous out.

Yin yoga practice re: liver/gall bladder meridian (don't ask)

Running (paved) 44:03 intensity: (10 @0) + (8 @1) + (31 @2) + (20:03 @3) + (20:16 @4) + (2:55 @5) 3.12 mi (14:07 / mi) +26m 13:46 / mi
ahr:136 max:157 shoes: 2015 Altra LP2.0-9 lime

Mostly paved, anyway. Temp was in mid to upper 50s and I needed to be in Allentown to meet someone at 5, so I decided to run nearby and then drive to where I would meet her to pass along quilt group files.

Ran in grass on side of most of the paved sections. Okay running on the gravel portions. (Knees don't like pavement.)

Saw a great blue heron and some ducks (mallard and mergansers), and during my cooldown walk (back to car after taking photos of the ducks) a golden trout.

Walking 10:27 intensity: (48 @1) + (9:33 @2) + (6 @3) 0.49 mi (21:19 / mi)
ahr:109 max:121 shoes: 2015 Altra LP2.0-9 lime

Back to car after taking photos of the ducks (and the great blue heron as it flew by me headed upstream).

4 PM

Walking 30:10 intensity: (4:02 @1) + (26:08 @2) 2.85 km (10:35 / km)
ahr:106 max:117

In the neighborhood; 51, sunny, with light breeze from SE so not as chilly as yesterday.

Earlier, I drove to Lancaster for the AQS show. One of these days I should take a class with Bethanne Nemesh, but that didn't happen today. The ribbon winners are jaw-dropping gorgeous.

(For the quilters: Janet Stone's latest alphabet quilt was best of show. I think she's trying to make 26 of them. When a Caryl Bryer Fallert-Gentry quilt doesn't win a ribbon you know the quilts are GOOD!!))

Some folks here on AP are counting states where they've orienteered. Here's the list for me (and Glen) (where rogaines [SD] count as orienteering):

30 states--

4 additional countries:
Canada (AB, BC, NB, NS, ON, QC)

We've visited 18 other states but not officially* orienteered there, lacking only Alaska (where we can try to orienteer one day) and Mississippi (where we probably won't).

*Unofficial orienteering involves just using/reading a map to get someplace, and we've done that many places (e.g., London) but won't count them in this list.

Sunny and 48 F, but with a breeze from the north. Came back after a trip partway up Aberdene to add my windpro gloves and a buff over my ears.

Flying Pig XXIII, day two of *2018* Masters Nationals (two-day classic). Partly sunny, low to mid 40s, much like yesterday but into the 50s later so great for hanging around at the finish. I was one of the first starters on Brown A.

Brown A, F65, 3.3 km, 180m climb nominal; 1:7500 / 5m. Kiser Hollow map at Carter Caves Resort State Park.

Happy with all my routes except for being sloppy to #2, a pit (in a line of pits) on a broad spur, approached from the opposite side of the spur or at an angle. I did not approach the challenge properly as I didn't pace count until my second try. I guess my first thought was that I'd get to the flat part of the spur and find the first pit and work my way to the third, but it didn't happen that way. Relocated from a control on a ditch bend (first time I passed it I thought it was the ditch end/top and that I was higher on the hill than I really was), and still overshot it on my pace count but knew to stop, turn back, and head a bit higher on the hill. I found the fourth pit in the line so knew I was now at the right level, and then I saw two other Brown A runners going to the proper pit. AP says 6:30 minutes lost (it also gives me an "error" on the run-in but always does that...I don't sprint very fast), so a time in the 54-55 minute range was possible.

Good enough for first place, though, with my sister Nancy (close behind on day 2) in second! (Ruth B, who ages up for 2019, was 3rd followed by Leslie M. and someone from OLOU). I checked my log from the last Carter Caves event in 2015 and my F60 competitors included Sandy, Janet F, Sue H-T and Natalia D, none of whom attended this year.

Mary Jo, you would have loved it!

Thanks to all in OCIN for another well-organized and executed Flying Pig!
