Orienteering race (Cobbs Hill Orange) 1:23:37 [3] *** 3.0 km (27:52 / km) +75m 24:47 / km

Rick Lavine is a wonderful course setter. He can take a little park like Cobbs Hill and make an interesting course out of it. I learned today that a little faster pace does not make for better thinking. I made lots of errors, but felt good on the trail. Except for the hills. It was fun to have a number of controls close together. I did a good job of going to the wrong control.

A beautiful day...sunny, perfect temperature. Great to be out in the "woods".

Even if when I left my punch card was hanging at the end of the line. : (

Thank you, Dick Detwiler, for my screw shoes.

Body Pump 1:00:00 [3]

New Body Pump "release party" at the JCC today. The studio was packed solid. It was really quite ridiculous. But great that so many people are working on getting healthy. All the instructors took turns teaching. It was interesting. It must be working. People comment that I "look fit".

It's rained and snowed all day. It will be muddy orienteering tomorrow. Screw shoes, I think.

Jogging (Jog/walk JCC track) 45:00 [4] 3.0 mi (15:00 / mi)

It was humid on the track today. All the outside rainy air made it a challenge to run. I haven't been on the track for awhile, and after 2 miles I decided to walk for half a mile. Then I found my stride again. All those runners who talk about a "short" 6 or 7 mile run, for some of us that seems unattainable. I get track rage over the people who know I'm coming up behind and move themselves over on the track so it's hard to pass them.

It felt good to run, and stretch, but now I'm tired. The forecast looks good for Sunday, but it might be muddy at Cobbs Hill. I can't wait!


Today a few people asked me if I was still working out and they said they could see the results. So, I may be feeling discouraged, but something must be working. I think the discouragement came from the fact that I find myself behind at work and run out and get fast food at lunchtime. tsk tsk. Counterproductive.

Stretching (Ball stretch class) 45:00 [1]

Expresso bike (Expresso Speedway) 4:28 [2] 1.0 mi (4:28 / mi)

Expresso bike (Rolling Thunder) 4:45 [2] 1.0 mi (4:45 / mi)

Expresso bike (Proving Grounds) 5:00 [3] 1.3 mi (3:51 / mi)

A big night at the JCC. I had a multi faceted workout. Karate chi is great, but I'm feeling discouraged. I can't wait for Sunday and the Icebreaker meet.

Expresso bike (Stormy Hollow) 36:54 [3] 7.4 mi (4:59 / mi)

Walking (JCC track) 16:00 [2] 1.0 mi (16:00 / mi)

I didn't feel like working out today, but I needed to put my frustration over school somewhere. I did a challenging route on the bike, but it wasn't too bad. Now I find that all my scores have been erased on the Expresso site. sigh.

Expresso bike (Proving Grounds) 20:00 [3] 4.7 mi (4:15 / mi)

Body Pump 1:00:00 [3]

Good workout today. I pushed myself a bit during body pump and it felt pretty good. The expresso bike seemed to be a bit out of whack. The JCC is starting a contest on the bike for April. I wonder if they'll be too busy to bother with.
