I have now attended both lecture and section for the music theory class. It's awesome. The professor and the TAs are really nice to let me audit it. I should get the text and bring a pen and a water bottle for in-class exercises.

I got the GPS watch software working on a Mac laptop I now have, so I don't have to depend on Jamie's windows tablet for uploading my GPS tracks.
sports (volleyball) 30:00  shoes: bare feet
with other grad students at the physics department social. I hadn't played team sports in a while, so it was a little challenging to focus on the group as a whole. still, I managed to participate in a couple of setups and to receive a couple of serves. my own serves were my strongest suit this time, as I didn't have to take into account the group dynamics during those quite as much.
I started at the western end of Jesusita and followed it past Inspiration point. At a latter point, I turned left onto another trail that T-junctions to the one I was running on and followed that trail north, up into the mountains. In comparing my GPS track to a topographic paper map, looks like that trail eventually leads to the Tunnel Trail. I went up it until I was 1:15 hours out, then turned back, making it back home in 1:05 hours (since the way back is more often downhill). I made sure to give the right of way to people moving in the opposite direction, especially when I was moving downhill. I have to make sure I don't step into poison oak when I do that, though. I should drink some electrolyte solution (probably about 500 ml) before the run, as well as after the run. I should get to the trail about 40-50 minutes before sunrise. I did wear a hat with a visor this time, I should do that in the future on this type of run.
