Orienteering 1:12:50 [4] 8.52 km (8:33 / km) +315m 7:13 / km

Blue course at Westmoreland State Park. Last fall's hurricane left considerable deadfall in unpredictable locations and reportedly made a considerable area Mike Brooks wanted to use virtually impassible. Of course, relying on the 1975 vegetation mapping isn't always a good bet even without a recent hurricane to mix it up. Didn't feel as though I quite had top speed available but it was a fairly clean run, aided by some luck in a vague area where I couldn't see the decaying fence I'd planned on following in and resorted to trying to discern the difference between what was white and what was light green in 1975 - it's hard to get seriously lost when the contour features are as dramatic as they are at Westmoreland.

Decided to give my left knee a day of as close to total rest as possible so not even a dance class here.

Thursday Mar 11, 2004 #

Cycling 1:40:00 [3] 19.5 mi (5:08 / mi)

Commute plus errands - apparently my prescription has stayed more or less stable for the last three years so heaven only knows why the vision test at the DMV in February was a problem.

Cycling 1:30:00 [3] 18.0 mi (5:00 / mi)

Tuesday Mar 9, 2004 #

Cycling 1:06:00 [3] 13.0 mi (5:05 / mi)

Running 12:00 [2]

Warmup and cooldown.

Form exercises 30:00 [3]

Bum kicks, A's, B's (feel totally unnatural - I can see why the coaches in high school gave these a miss) and a few 100m strides on a slight downhill. Would have done more strides but right hamstring still wasn't feeling too happy.

Have had nagging pain in top of left shin/front of knee since, as far as I can recall, the Bowie event on February 29. Nothing like acute and doesn't seem to affect function but neither is it disappearing as I would normally expect. Feels rather like the sort of ache asosociated with pushing too big a gear in early season cycling. Going to wait and see.

Cycling 1:06:00 [3] 13.0 mi (5:05 / mi)

Nasty headwind on the way into work. Stiff and sore from the race yesterday though not in ways that affect cycling noticeably. Though the hard running on Sunday made my left knee feel slightly worse.
