orienteering 57:17 [3] 3.67 mi (15:37 / mi) +593ft 13:32 / mi

Off to Gay City with Julia. Phil had family obligations so he was heading off to GC as I was getting home.It's not far for him, just under an hour.

Bare ground except for a little bit of ice on a couple of trails, but not enough to cause any problem. And winter vegetation, no ferns! So generally easy running. Did the Green course from last September's event, set by Jim and Rich.

Excellent run. Priority was on the physical side -- try to run more than I have been doing, even if still in bits and pieces, just try to make them a little longer bits and pieces, and of course no falls or stumbles (the latter can on occasion do damage to an elderly orienteer). Success on all accounts. Very satisfying.

Navigation, well, I think it was fine. No controls out there. I think I was at all the right spots, but even if I was wrong, it doesn't really matter. The point of the outing was working on movement.

After we were both done, we spent a few minutes with me testing Julia on her precision terrain reading skills. There's room for improvement. :-)

Fine outing! Reminds me of the days Alex and Ali were in the valley. Thought such times were gone for good, but it seems not.

hike with Gail 1:11:48 [1] 4.02 mi (17:52 / mi) +390ft 16:22 / mi

Pine Nook Road. Icy in places, had to be careful. 25F and breezy.

11 AM

treadmill 18:39 [3] 2.0 mi (9:19 / mi)

9:35, 9:04. Started at 6.2 mph, upped it 0.1 every 3 minutes. Pulse 135 at the end.

Sure is nice having workouts last only 20 minutes or so. Doesn't take a lot of mental fortitude to get through them. And don't feel beat up afterwards.

Wednesday Feb 12 #

1 PM

hike 59:00 [1] 3.16 mi (18:40 / mi) +231ft 17:28 / mi

Quabbin, from gate 22 down to the water and back. A good bit of ice, so had the spikes on. Reservoir is iced in where I was (on the western shore), but I could see open water to the south.

Too far north to tell if conditions would be good for a night assault on Little Quabbin or Mount Lizzie.

10 AM

hike with Gail 1:09:34 [1] 4.02 mi (17:18 / mi) +390ft 15:51 / mi

Bailed on O' training with Phil and Julia, just seemed a bit risky, wet woods and maybe a little snow or slush or ice. Don't have the proper shoes (yet).

35, very light mist, calm.

2 PM

treadmill 19:00 [2] 2.0 mi (9:30 / mi)

9:40, 9:20. No walking. Pulse in upper 130s at the end. Started at 6.2 mph, upped it 0.1 every 5 minutes just for entertainment.
