Orienteering race 51:26 [2] **** 3.7 km (13:54 / km) +100m 12:15 / km

Orienteering at Mississippi Bar. Only did the Brown course, as I didn't want to push my back too hard. Unfortunately the sharp pain came back before I even got to the first control, but I was able to walk a lot of it off and managed to finish the course, if not exactly at a run, at least at a pretty good shuffle. And I made no navigational errors at all in the rockpiles, which was something to feel good about.

At 8 PM I'm still feeling sore, but this time the major pain is on the outside of my right buttocks, up near the hip. So strange that I hurt in a different place every time I try to run. I'll probably try to call the trainer that Dennis recommended this week, and have him take a look at me.

Running (Treadmill) 12:00 [1] 1.0 mi (12:00 / mi)

Cautious warmup/cooldown on treadmill. I've decided to try orienteering at Mississippi Bar tomorrow, as my back is stiff but not painful.

Weights 1:00:00 [2]

Bicycling (MTB) 1:30:00 [3] 12.0 mi (7:30 / mi)

Around the back side of the Claremont and up the big climb to Grizzly Peak. I'm starting to feel like I'm getting back in decent bicycling shape again, at least.

Bicycling (MTB) 40:00 [2] 10.0 mi (4:00 / mi)

Easier afternoon ride from school to Montclair via Scenic. Still not brave enough to attempt any running at all.

Bicycling (MTB) 1:30:00 [3] 12.0 mi (7:30 / mi)

Another classic ride. Started from HRS, through Lake Temescal to Tunnel Road. Felt good (or crazy) enough to then make the turn at Charing Cross and climb the big hills all the way up to Grizzly Peak. I was stiff and tired when I got to Royal Ground for my well-earned latte, but recovered quickly, and my back feels pretty good now. Perhaps tough climbs is what I need to loosen up whatever is wrong with my back.

Probably won't try running again for at least another week.

Bicycling (MTB) 2:00:00 [2] 25.0 mi (4:48 / mi)

More bicycling in lieu of running. For the first time in many years, took the traditional ride from here to Castro Valley. (Hard to believe I once rode there and back via Redwood Road every single morning, starting at 6 AM). Not too surprising to discover a new Starbucks and bagel shop on the main road through town, which I stopped at for breakfast in place of the old donut shop.

Then I continued on to Dublin and took BART back home. No physical problems to speak of.
